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Brown's probation stemming from the Rihanna attack was revoked in July following the alleged hit-and-run.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