Chris Brown may be headed for an early retirement, he said.
Less than 24 hours after being booked and released in connection with his hit-and-run incident, Chris Brown said on Twitter that he may retire from music soon.
"Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," Brown Tweeted on August 6, 2013.

Fans are not sure how serious Brown is about quitting show biz...but the singer was likely pretty frustrated that day.
He was jailed in connection for a hit-and-run incident in Van Nuys, California...for about an hour. Brown, 24, got to the Van Nuys jail at 2:40 p.m., was booked two minutes later (apparently, stars get fast service). Brown was then released at 3:22 p.m. with no bail.
Brown was on probation due to his assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna. The hit-and-run case resulted in a probation violation, and he faces up to four years of jail time if he is found guilty in an August 19th hearing.
Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent," he wrote. "I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

Because hitting women with your car and driving off is SO much better and more mature than physically hitting women. Riiiighhht.
Fans, predictably, begged him not to retire. The jury is out as to whether he actually will-and in the hit-and-run case.
Chris Brown's new album, X, will drop later this summer. The single "Love More", which features Nicky Minaj, will be released later this month.
