    Chris Brown went to jail for three months earlier this year and he insists it was a humbling experience that made him a better person.

    Breezy was incarcerated due to a probation violation related to his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

    He spoke about what it was like in the clink, telling Billboard, "A guard wakes you up; you eat. You stay in your cell most of the time, basically 24 hours a day. It's isolation. My maturity level has risen as far as my realizing what’s important. At the end of the day, it's just a humbling experience...You're more appreciative of everything else that's on the outside. A burger tastes 1,000 times better when you're out. I just missed my family. I missed my dad and mom, all my cousins... seeing people's faces and smiles."

    Breezy didn't find prison to be a place to foster a creative boon, either, saying, "Jail isn't a place of many creative spirits. But as far as my creativity, I put it on hold until I got out. Jail is more of a regimen and a structure. I'm more of a free spirit when it comes to creating music, painting and art. So when I got out, I was very excited to get into the studio."

    He is not bitter, though.

    Breezy says it happened for a reason. "There was a purpose," Breezy mused. "Maybe I was out of control too much. Or I needed something to humble me to the point where I get it. At that point, I didn’t look at it as trying to get out of the situation but learn from it."
