Raz B to Chris Brown: It Was Never About Attention!

12/30/2010 5:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Raz B is lashing back at Chris Brown ... insisting yesterday's explosive Twitter incident was "not about receiving attention" -- as Brown insisted -- but was about standing up for what he felt was "right."


In the wake of Brown's apology, Raz has issued an apology of his own to TMZ -- saying, "I want to publicly apologize for my direct attacks done out of anger. This is now about taking the right approach, so not only my story can be heard, but so someone learns something valuable."

As we previously reported, Raz ignited the war by tweeting incendiary comments to Brown about the Rihanna incident. Brown reacted to Raz with a slew of racist and gay slurs. Raz then fired back with gay slurs of his own.

Raz adds, "Standing up for yourself does not mean yelling or victimizing others and I sincerely apologize for that.  I was told that 'you can’t hear my message if I’m screaming.'”

As for the death threats Raz B's brother made towards Brown, Raz's rep tells us Ricky Romance's opinions and statement do not reflect how Raz feels -- adding,"Raz B cannot control his brother being protective over him."

Raz B is immature for lying about serious matters that children suffer from everyday, and also for bringing up the Rihanna-Chris Brown topic on twitter. The public has already criticized and put Chris Brown and Rihanna through enough. Although, Brown was wrong, he has apologized, and is taking steps to become a better person. Raz B needs to grow up and find another hobby, music didn't work for him, niether did starting twitter beef or lying. Chris Brown is a wonderful entertainer my only advice to him is to ignore people who are trying to bring you down. Block Raz B from you twitter and keep on striving for success!!

I feel that the Twitter beef between Raz B and Chris Brown was uncalled for. Yes, it is ok for Raz B to have his opinions about the Chris Brown and Rihanna situation, as the whole world has. However, Chris Brown knows he was wrong, and has taken steps to better himself and expand his career. It was immature of Raz B to bring up the topic to the public, and I believe it was a publicity stunt. Rihanna and Chris Brown have been through enough, and bringing the situation to the light again, was not very mature of Raz B. The comments Chris Brown and Raz B exchanged on twitter were said out of anger, and both of them behaved immaturely and out of character. Raz B initiated the fight and should therefore, take responsiblity for what he said, not to mention he began bring others stars in the argument by mentioning Omarion, who had nothing to do with the situation. Despite, faults that Brown may have he is talented, and has a great future ahead of him. As for Raz B he needs grow up, maybe get some counseling and move on with his life.

RazB is nothing but hungry for attention and thirsty for money!? Was he really molested by Chris Stokes(his cousin) and Marques Houston(butt buddy) or was he just bi-curious and acted on it?!

Why is everyone attacking Chris Brown? He was just defending himself. Razb and his brother were also making homophobic slurs and nobody says anything. Here is one of his brothers tweets:
@chrisbrown KEEP SPEAKING ON MY BROTHER bitch ***** and imma do you how @marqueshouston did ever been to prison Little Boy??

If you read Razb's tweets before all of this happened you will see that he was practically stalking Rihanna on twitter making advances at her. When he was not getting a response from her he turned to bring up the Rihanna, Chris incident, Razb and his brother are media whores. They look for any type of publicity. They are just pissed off that Chris did a track called "First Day of Spring" which Razb supposedly did first.

His brother has now started attacking Trey Songz saying that he was a back up singer for razb and B2K. Here are his tweets:

@treysongz was a backup singer for @razb2k did you know that?????? about 10 hours ago via twidroyd

Yo @treysongz how can you disrespect @kellzodiac after you sang backup for #B2K on BumpBumpBump.every since then u been a @kellzodiac clone about 6 hours ago via twidroyd

These guys would do anything for attention.

Razb is crazy. I seen him on Youtube going crazy. I know when your not in the spotlight. You can get jealous. I love and adore Chris and I know this was only directed at RazB and nobody else. Chris is a great guy and this will not affect how I or his fans feel about him. This is over. Love you Chris can't wait till FAME 2011. Stand strong Teambrezzy!

Razb did not do anything but tell the truth! Did Chris Brown beat Rihanna yes he undeniably did so why get mad over something that is true? And more importantly why come back with gay slurs? I am gay and I felt hurt from what Chris Brown said it was outlandish! RazB I completely support you, you were not in the wrong for TELLING THE TRUTH!

Not about getting attention? Why bring up OLD ass news then? It's just messy!

Raz B. needs personal and career counseling. He's not gonna revive his career this way.
Chris B. needs to focus on how to think about his career before opening his mouth. You gotta know when to shut the hell up!
