Chris Brown to Rihanna: tell Joe Camel Jay-Z to shut up and stay out of my business!
Jay-Z has been jealous over Brown's relationship with his protégé Rihanna and became angry over the highly publicized fight between the two in 2009. From that moment on, Jay-Z began trying to sabotage Brown's career in deeds witnessed by people in the entertainment industry.

Brown stated to Jet, "No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass." It does have the appearance of a double standard, especially when one considers the fact Jay-Z was filmed hitting a woman backstage, not realizing the lens was on him.
