The 20-year-old rapper was livid when `Champion`, his duet with Chris Brown appeared on the internet before the record was released, so insisted the LP, `Transition`, had its release date brought forward.
He said: "That definitely p***ed me off. Oh definitely. I was like, `Oh no, my life`s over, what do I do?`
"But it was OK. I just had to stamp on a few desks at my record label and say, `This needs to come out now.` "
Chipmunk also revealed how moved Chris - whose career has floundered since he was convicted of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009 - was by the words of `Champion` when he was first sent the song.
Explaining how their collaboration came about, Chipmunk told more! magazine: "I wanted everything to have some kind of deep meaning and I was thinking, `Who`s going to sing "Some people have to learn" and really mean it?` Chris Brown!
"So we hollered at him and he absolutely loved it. He rang me and said the song hit him where it hurts."
