For the first time in six years, Chris Brown graces the cover of VIBE for the magazine's January 2016 cover. In the interview, Chris reflects on his road to redemption, which includes his 2009 domestic violence case with Rihanna, rehab, and a stint in jail.

“It’s not my job to be your role model; my job is to be your inspiration. There’s a difference," he says. “You can be that rose in the concrete, or you can be that underdog, or you can be that person that people already cast out, and still be able to maintain and live your life, understand change, and make a difference.”
