In episode 140, while discussing the overabundance of actors in the music business, Jackson, 32, reveals that a lot of musicians try to play the “tough guy” role in real life but aren’t cut from that cloth at all after several run-ins with a few, then reveals one of the altercations being with Trey Songz involving a female.


“And like some of them, I mean some of them be doing crazy sh*t by like, like I said I had some run ins,” Jackson explains to hosts Mouse Jones and FlyRy Jackson. “And they do that thing where they were trying to sell this tough guy scene. Like this one … Trey. Trey Songz, B**** A** N****, try to press women, you know what I’m saying? But then turn down a fade when a n**** came up to him for the fade, turned it down,” the actor said in the clip above. “I’m not cool with n****s like that.”

He continued, “If he wants to fight women and stuff like that—to me, I can’t operate like that, because you get so many of those and especially once they there and it’s like, it’s unfortunate because I’m a fan!… I can separate the man from the artist, but sometimes it starts getting a little too muddy for me.”
