The singer, who is 33 years old, turned to Instagram on Monday to issue an apology to Robert Glasper, who is 44 years old. The singer had previously criticized Glasper on Instagram after Glasper won the Grammy award for best R&B album on Sunday.
Chris Brown took to Instagram Stories on Monday to show his followers a snapshot of an apology direct message he had written to Glasper the previous day.
“Congratulations my brother,” reads the DM. “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. After doing my research I actually think your amazing…”
After that, it seemed as if Brown directed his ire against the Recording Academy.
“THE ORGANIZATION ISNT DOING US BLACKS OUR DUE DILIGENCE,” his DM continued. “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. Gold bless my G”
After losing to Glasper, Brown reportedly asked on social media, “Who the (expletive) is Robert Glasper.”
He added: “Ima keep kicking y’all ass! Respectfully.” Brown was nominated for his work on the album “Breezy” (Deluxe), while Glasper was acknowledged for his work on the album “Black Radio III.”
