Nick Cannon has an important message to share with his 1 million Instagram pals and 5 million Twitter friends. Stay with us: Michael Jackson plus Tupac Shakur equals Chris Brown

We'll let the former Mr. Mariah take it from here:

"Damn right I said it! The level of talent, passion, and artistic ability that this young man possesses makes@ChrisBrownOfficial a true legend amongst legends. A lot of times we don't realize or acknowledge our treasures while we still have them with us. We wait until they are gone to appreciate their power. Think about how much everyone attacked MJ and 2Pac while they were alive... I don't think I have ever witnessed someone more gifted, who has overcome so much and still growing and learning daily. My Prayers go up for this dude everyday. @ChrisBrownOfficial #Respect"

And that's all he wrote—for now. You know there's more coming.

In related news, Cannon's previous Instagram post saw him mulling joining the dating site christianmingle.com, writing, "In Jesus name... What's your phone number?! LOL." Hit him up!
