Chis Brown (R) with former girlfriend Rihanna hints at quitting music scene

R'n'B superstar Chris Brown has revealed he is preparing to quit music for good after the release of "X," his forthcoming LP due to never-ending brick-bats from "mainstream America".

The controversial 24-year-old singer claimed that he no longer enjoys making music and as he is "tired of being famous for a mistake" he made when he was 18, a reference to his 2009 attack on former girlfriend Rihanna.

"Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent," he told his 12.9 million followers. " I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

He added: "Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album."

Brown has faced constant criticism in the wake of the assault, which took place after a pre-Grammy bash.

The pair united briefly earlier this year after Brown split with Karrueche Tran, with RiRi even appearing to support her beau at a court appearance.

His twitter rant come hours after the Fine China singer surrendered himself into police custody over his on-going hit-and-run case. He spent 45 minutes in jail.

Brown's probation stemming from the Rihanna attack was revoked in July following the alleged hit-and-run.

X, which is the Brown's fifth studio album, is scheduled for release in the US on August 20.
