Chris Brown and Big Sean are known to be good friends. Not only do they collaborate on the same tracks, but now they are also sharing the cover of the same magazine together — well kind of. Both of the entertainers cover the December 2012/January 2013 issue of XXL Magazine, which hits shelves on December 4th.
Inside his cover story entitled “No More Apologies,” which he wrote himself, Chris speaks about his critics, his feelings about love, his fight with Drake and much more. Take a look at the excerpts below:
On his critics:
“In the beginning, I used to be hot. I’m normal. I’m human, so if anybody says something that’s a lie, I’m numb to it. I’ve smartened up.”
On his feelings about love:
“One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life. When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true. Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.”
On his fight with Drake & Meek Mill:
“A lot of people wanna know about the whole situation with me, Drake and Meek Mill. At the end of the day, I’m me, they’re them. They rap, I sing. Totally different caliber. I rap, I play around on mixtapes. But our words don’t collide as much as you’d think.”
Inside his cover story entitled “Living The Good Life,” my future ex-husband Big Sean speaks on how his hometown of Detroit inspires his music, being responsible and much more. Check out the excerpts below:
On being influenced by Detroit:
“I took all my experiences from Detroit and incorporated them into who I am today. From partying to inspiration to sharing times about being broke to love to the dope boys, paper chasers. I would see all the players rocking furs and gators. I’ve seen people get killed. I’ve seen people spend crazy money. I’ve seen poor people. I give every aspect of the city in my music. They need somebody to tell that story.”
On being responsible:
“It’s deeper than just comin’ up or making money. We got the potential and opportunities to change the world—and still have fun with it. It’s a responsibility that I feel like I’m willing to take.”
What’s interesting about their respective issue covers (besides the fact that they have the same color scheme) is that they are both wearing gold, have grills, and are covering their eye (insert Illuminati theories and comments here) and I love it!!!!
It’s quite hard to choose which cover I like the best though. I find both of them to be very attractive and I really love both of their artistry. Because of his longevity, I’m gonna have to go with Breezy, but don’t worry Sean, I still plan to sleep with you one day.
