Grammy-winning rapper T.I. recently discussed his thoughts on frequent collaboator Chris Brown hooking back up with former girlfriend Rihanna and the danger of domestic violence happening again.
In Tip’s perspective, Chris Breezy and RiRi are adults and responsible for their own decisions.
“I think that’s their decision. It’s their decision, you know. I know they have a lot of genuine love for one another. I don’t think that either of them would leave the other, go somewhere else and find someone that would make them as happy. [He did hurt her. Would I let him hurt one of my daughters?] Absolutely not. Absolutely not, but if my daughter is grown what can I do?” (“Joy Behar Say Anything!”)
Recently, West Coast rapper Game spoke on the reunion and refused to imagine the same incident happening to his own daughter.
“Yeah, that’s like a little brother of mine,” Game told radio jockey Howard Stern when asked about Chris Brown. “I did the best that I could to counsel him through that and I feel like he made it back okay. And they’re back together and what I thought of it? I just thought they were young and that was just one of those Hollywood mishaps. I don’t think it’ll happen again. … [If he was dating my daughter and smacked her up like that, would he be alive today?] Uh, eh, let’s not paint that picture. [He would not be alive.] Yeah, that’s Howard talking. Are you trying to get me to kill Chris Brown, man? That’s not gonna happen, Howard. That was pretty clever though.” (Howard TV)
A few days prior, Dipset’s Juelz Santana revealed how much controversy his “Back to the Crib” collabo with Brown caused months after the publicized fight.
“One thing L.A. Reid did though — I am definitely gonna put that out there, he dropped the ball on my ‘Back to the Crib’ record,” Santana told “RapFix Live” when he stopped by the show on Wednesday. In 2009, Juelz tapped Breezy to guest on his Polow da Don-produced single “Back to the Crib.” It was a difficult time for Chris, who was feeling major blacklash following his assault on Rihanna earlier that year. Though the record captured a lot of the magic that Elz and Breezy exhibited on their first collab (2005’s “Run It!”), according to Juelz, Def Jam was looking to protect their star artist Rihanna.

A few weeks ago, Chris B. responded to people’s issues with his personal life.
“It’s just me being honest with myself,” said Breezy of the viral video he put out describing his love triangle with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran. “Me and [Rihanna] have history and me and her definitely gonna be best of friends, and we’re working on our friendship now.” While there have been many outspoken critics of their relationship, he’s not concerned with people’s opinions. “I think everyone feels attached to this old situation,” said Chris. “It’s still a very detrimental situation ’cause it’s stuff that we deal with today and that’s why I’m doing the Jenesse Center that shows that domestic violence is not OK. But as far as our personal life, I think people gotta give it a chance, not even give it a chance, shut the hell up. At the end of the day, whatever opinion they have ain’t gonna change nothing I’m doing.” (Rap-Up)
