Chris Brown is offering an interesting apology to Robert Glasper after being upset on social media after losing the “Best R&B Album” Grammy to the decorated pianist and producer on Sunday (February 5).
The singer posted a screenshot of his Instagram direct message to Glasper, writing, “Congratulations my brother… I would like to apologize if you took offense to my reaction at the Grammys. You were not the intended target and I know I came off really rude and mean.”
He continued: “After doing my research I actually think you’re amazing… the organization isn’t doing us Blacks our due diligence. You and I should never be in the same category… two totally different vibes and genres. So from one Black man to another, congratulations. Hope you are able to feed your family for life. God bless my G.”
Following Glasper’s fifth Grammy award win for Black Radio III, which topped Brown’s Breezy, CB posted an IG Story of Glasper reading, “Y’all playing. Who da f**k is this?” He then wrote, “Ima keep kicking y’all a**! Respectfully.”
Brown, who has been nominated for 21 Grammys and won one, also posted a message reading, “Who the f**k is Robert Glasper,” using a graphic and phrase that Glasper himself has used in a self-deprecating fashion.
Brown continued: “I gotta get my skills up… ima start playing the harmonica.” He then reposted a TikTok relaying his charting numbers before posting a Google search of Glasper with a voice memo, saying, “Who the f**k is this?”
