Although it’s unclear what initially sparked the post, Chris Brown went on a lengthy Instagram rant demanding respect and claiming he was the “best” on Friday (October 27).

He kicked off his (mostly) all caps tirade with a post that read: “Made a habit of shutting down conversations that involve hating on other people.”

As he explained in his long-winded diatribe, Brown is evidently tired of getting all the hate when, in his eyes, he’s a multi-talented artist who’s constantly winning.

“Take it how u want but due to the fact I have to defend myself for winning is a damn shame!!,” he wrote in the caption “I AINT BRINGING BHRIS BACK! MY MUSIC WILL FOREVER SPEAK FOR ME. SO ANYONE WHO THINK IM FINNA KEEP LETTING YALL TRY TO MAKE AN ISSUE OUT OF LOVE needs to take several seats. I CAME TO NY FOR A GREAT FREE CONCERT.IMA FINALLY SAY THIS SHIT… IM THE BEST OUT OF ALL THESE ARTIST AND I WILL NOT ALLOW U BROKE FOLLOWING NEED A HOOK FROM CHRIS BROWN SO YALL RECORDS POP TO SAY OTHERWISE! YALL BETTTER START SHOWING SOME FUCKING RESPECT AND ACT RIGHT!”

Breezy, who’s getting ready to drop Heartbreak On A Full Moon on October 31, then went on to point out his accolades like he was reading off his resumé while reiterating he’s “the fucking best.”

I MAKE MUSIC FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE MY SHIT!!! And obviously everybody need a hook or a song but me from anyone!!! 3 platinum singles before my album, I direct, edit, vocal arrange, and make u hate me because IM THE FUCKING BEST! SO DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, ACTAULLY GET A WORK ETHIC AND GRIND BECAUSE IMA OUT-HUSTLE, RAP, AND SING BETTER THEN ALL YOU SCARED INDUSTRY NIGGAS! I been here before a lot y’all niggas even knew about real music! NOT NAY ONE OF ANY OF YALL CAN SEE ME AND YOU ACTUALLY TRULY KNOW IT!”

Whew! Well, at least he got that off his chest.
