From his bravado, his sound, his fashion to his autonomy over who he is as an artist, Bobby Brown has unapologetically been his most authentic self. Through his challenges and his triumphs, he has lived through them in front of the entire world to see.

A&E premiered their newest series Biography: Bobby Brown, which gives fans an intimate look into the world of Bobby Brown and his career spanning over four decades. EBONY Correspondent Yonathan Ellis was able to catch up with the R&B legend himself and his wife Alicia Etheredge-Brown on the red carpet, along with some of music's biggest names in hip hop, including Ja Rule, Fab 5 Freddy and Grandmaster Caz, during the premiere.
