Legendary songstress Jill Scott is not ducking the smoke after getting backlash for praising crooner Chris Brown.

In fact, “Jilly from Philly” doubled down on her stance about Breezy being a supremely talented and multifaceted entertainer who destroyed rival Quavo with a devastating diss record.

Brown showcased his repertoire when he rapped on the recently dropped track “Weakest Link” which impressed the “Golden” singer.

Many other fans agreed with Scott’s sentiments about Breezy, according to the comments section of The Shade Room. “If more people had her mentality. Some people should sip the mind your business juice. Funny how all the women forgave him [Breezy] but the people he didn’t touch can’t ….. makes you think huh?

Another person added, “I mean … she is right … don’t let what she [Scott] said go over your heads.”
