"11th album. I still pinch myself and have frequent Spatz of imposter syndrome. I'm extremely thankful and appreciative of how far I've come and the people who got me here," Brown began an Instagram story post overnight. "I continue to strive higher. MUSIC IS A CHOICE AND I THANK YOU FOR CHOSING ME," he concludes. Subsequently, in the comments fans rushed to show support for Brown. "Super TRIPLE OG LEGEND," and "C BREEZY 🔥" two of the top comments on the post read. Check out the post for yourself below.
