"I know Trey Songz is a guy that if he keeps with the hits and he humble himself a little bit more he will definitely be one of the runner ups. Chris Brown is already there as far as I’m concerned because he’s a humble guy. Chris Brown use to come to my studio when he was 13, 14, 15, and 16… I use to lecture him all the time with DJ Wayne Williams. I tell you one thing, I have the most upmost respect for Chris Brown. My hat goes off to him. Because why? He got into the studio, he did what he was supposed to do and he bounced back like round ball."
