During Chris Brown’s highly-anticipated sit-down with Drink Champs, the R&B superstar said that ghostwriting isn’t okay in Hip-Hop, but acknowledged it was acceptable in R&B.
“It depends on the artist,” Breezy admitted. “In the Hip Hop standpoint, if you stand on your business, you rapping and you doing your shit, we don’t wanna hear about somebody else’s robbery. So we not gonna respect it from a Hip Hop culture to be like, ‘Man that’s hard that n-gga wrote it for him.’ Like what’re we listening to you for then? We should be listening to this n-gga.”
He continued, “I always said it like this right cause I never discredit writers who write on my album. I got hella co-writers and we do certain shit, but it’s just like this. They can write it, who gon’ sing it like me? So at the end of the day you might write some beautiful shit that gets overlooked cause it don’t sound good.”

Elsewhere in his visit to Drink Champs, Chris reflected on his relationship with Drake, and how they squashed their notorious beef. According to the Breezy singer, it was a clear case of miscommunication on both sides.
“It was just a misunderstanding on both ends,” Chris Brown said. “I ain’t going into too many details. It’s funny now, but as far as that, blood, he good. He straight.”
He added, “It was funny, and then when we actually sat and talked about it afterward, it was just like, man, what the fuck was we doing? Like bro, that shit funny as hell. But shit, I’m an R&B n-gga.”
Chris Brown just dropped off his tenth studio album Breezy on Friday (June 24), which featured appearances from Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, BLEU, H.E.R. and others.
