Chris Brown Disses Robert Glasper After Losing Grammy For Best R&B Album
Chris Brown has a bone to pick with Robert Glasper, who took home the Best R&B Album Of The Year award at the Grammys. Following the award ceremony, Chris Brown aired out his frustrations at Glasper and the Grammys in a string of posts on social media. It appeared that Chris Brown felt as though Breezy was a shoo-in for the category. So when the Recording Academy called Glasper to the stage to accept the award for Best R&B Album for Black Radio III, the “Call Me Every Day” artist threw a tantrum online.
“Bro who the f*ck is this?” Chris wrote alongside a screenshot of Google results for Robert Glasper. “Y’all playing,” he added with several laughing emojis, “who da fuck is this.” His subsequent post continued to question Glasper’s merits. “Ima keep kicking yall ass! Respectfully,” he added. Then, he began to mock Glasper for his musicianship. “I gotta get my skills up.. Ima start playing the harmonica,” he wrote. Afterward, he shared a meme of himself with a harmonica photoshopped into his hand. “New level unlocked,” the post read, “Harmonica Breezy.”
Chris’ commentary led to immediate backlash. Though some fans felt as though Breezy got robbed, others felt as though the singer revealed a lack of musical knowledge. “Chris Brown not knowing who Robert Glasper is… is the reason all of Chris Brown songs sound the same,” one person tweeted. Another wrote, “Chris Brown has 20 nominations and 1 win. He taking out his frustrations on Robert Glasper but them 19 Ls are the real enemy.”

Even if Chris Brown isn’t familiar with Robert Glasper, the famed 44-year-old Houston native has landed undoubtedly on his playlist at some point. Glasper has been active for 20 years and worked alongside some of the greatest artists of our time. He teamed up with Kendrick Lamar on “These Walls” off of To Pimp A Butterfly. However, he also worked alongside artists like Mac Miller, Jill Scott, Anderson .Paak and more in recent times. Black Radio III included collabs alongside Killer Mike, Big K.R.I.T., Q-Tip, H.E.R, Musiq Soulchild, Jennifer Hudson, India.Arie, Ty Dolla $ign, and more.
While Chris Brown left empty-handed, he was undoubtedly up against some tough competition. Along with Breezy and Black Radio III, the R&B Album Of The Year category was rounded out with Mary J. Blige’s Good Morning Gorgeous (Deluxe), Lucky Daye’s Candydrip, and PJ Morton’s Watch The Sun.
