Chris Brown and Tyga stopped by Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning show to discuss their Fan of a Fan collaboration and their feelings about Kylie Jenner (positive), the Grammys (negative), and Drake (also negative). Watch the interview below:

Unsurprisingly, Tyga's rumored girlfriend Kylie Jenner was the first topic of conversation. (Tyga and Kylie's brother-in-law Kanye both spoke about the relationship last week in separate interviews with Power 105.) "She's just a good person," Tyga said of the 17-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. "I love being around her. My decision is to continue to be around her and be involved and have her be involved in my life. I don't think it's the world's decision to dictate that."

Brown came to Tyga's defense on this point -- as he did throughout the interview, overwhelming Tyga at times. "Some people don't have to initiate [messing around] to be cool with somebody," Brown explained. "It's just energy," he added. "Just like if I would have 15 girls in the studio… am I boning the 15 girls? No. But they're giving me inspiration."

What else inspires Chris Brown? Definitely not the Grammys. "I'm not a hater," he said, before declaring "I just feel like the Grammys is f---ing bullshit." Ebro asked if Brown participated in the Grammy-voting process, and Brown responded that he doesn't. "I shouldn't have to!" he continued. "I'm that great that I shouldn't f---ing need to vote for myself." He suggested that his run-ins with the law should not impact his Grammy chances, since they haven't prevented other artists from being honored. "You might as well take away James Brown's stuff, you might as well take away Michael Jackson's stuff… if we going off how they are as people, that's bullshit."

Drake & Tyga Diss Each Other... Again

When it came time to talk about the latest episode of the Drake vs. Tyga situation, Brown kept interrupting Tyga and attempting to change the subject. "This n---a not making no money by talking about [Drake]. We make him hot… I'm not gonna give [Drake] no more ratings… and I'm not gonna let Tyga do it." When asked about his own relationship with Drake -- the two collaborated not long ago on Nicki Minaj's "Only" -- all Brown would say was, "I don't mess with the dude," and "I'm on probation."

Tyga: I Don't Really Get Along With Drake or Nicki Minaj

When Tyga finally got to speak, he admitted to tweeting "u still a bitch" at Drake recently, but he was more willing to talk about his relationship with Cash Money. He expressed a desire "to start fresh." "I was supposed to be out [of] the deal," he explained, though that hasn't happened yet. "They agreed to a number to let me out the deal… even though they owe me money I was gonna pay them 'cause I ain't petty. I just want to move on with my life."
