Chris Brown has given one of his first radio interviews since the publicized domestic dispute he had with Rihanna last February and announced plans to place more attention on having his music inspire people.
Breezy also touched on his publicized "Larry King Live" interview from over the summer.
"I was so scared and nervous to be on there," Brown told New York Hot 97 radio personality Angie Martinez about being on "Larry King Live." "I didn't know what to do...I couldn't really be myself and get people to understand who I was...I had to kinda say what I wanted to say but I had to kinda think about what I wanted to say because I was already being so criticized so much at that point...Even if I went on the Larry King interview and said everything that I wanted to hear, it would still not be good enough...That's why I focus on my music. I'm dealing with what's going on in my life, my personal life but I think my gift to the world is inspiring kids and inspiring people with my music from now on...I feel like the underdog -- I had to prove myself in the beginning."

Brown recently debuted "I Can Transform Ya," his new song with Lil Wayne, late last month.
Chris Brown released a track titled 'I Can Transform Ya' today on his blog site, Mechanicaldummy.com. The song, the first official track Brown has released since the February altercation with ex-girlfriend Rihanna that resulted in his guilty plea to an assault charge, is said to be the first single from his upcoming album, Graffiti.

He played the record during a live blog broadcast in September.
"So, like I said, if you wanna actually hear the song, like, I just played it, you can actually play it on the chat," Brown explained. "You can go to mechanicaldummy.com, ChrisBrownWorld.com, it's gonna be everywhere, so, make sure y'all request it at the radio. I don't think it's on iTunes yet, so, I don't think you can download it, not 'til later. So, if you like the song, go 'head and request it. All the fans, I love y'all, thank-you so much for all the support over all the times, I'm still here. I'm gonna try to make as much music as possible for y'all while I'm doing the community service at the same time. [laughs] I thank all of y'all and I love you, bye." (Justin TV)
Swizz Beatz, the producer of the song, recently spoke on linking with Breezy and Weezy.
"[Chris has] got something to prove," Swizz said in an interview. "He worked on 60, 70 songs. He's just on fire. I told him, 'Listen, man, just stay focused on your music. They gonna throw shots at you. Time heals everything.' He has great support; his mother is amazing. I was really scoping out the situation, it could have been something I didn't want to be around, but I really got a great vibe. Honestly...The Wayne part is just nothing to talk about...He really showed his a** on this one. It's probably the best feature verse since the 'It's Me [B*tches]' remix. He really went in on the 'Transformer' joint." (MTV)
