During Chris Brown‘s recent publicity tour for his upcoming album X, he’s addressed the Drake beef a few times. But now, it’s Drake’s turn. And dude is coming out the gate swinging…in his usual passive aggressive way….
A few years ago while Chris & Rihanna were broken up after their “incident”, Rih was rumored to be getting it in with Drake. The rapper appeared on her “What’s My Name” song and in the video, and the two never denied the rumors.
Since Drake & Chris WERE homies, awkwardness set in. Which brings us to the still prevalent beef over Rihanna.
The “Started From the Bottom” rapper hit up Elliot Wilson’s EVR radio show Friday evening and told folks media needs to “stop asking him sh*t about that man.” Drake called him insecure since his music is better than Chris’ and because Rihanna fell into his lap. Sigh.
The passive aggressive shots continued when Drake was asked if he thinks it’s the media who’s stirring up the drama:
“For any media out there, don’t ask me sh*t about that man when I come up there. And leave that man alone. Stop preying on his insecurities. His insecurities are the reason I make better music than him…I’m more popping than him…At one point in life the woman he loves fell into my lap and I did what a real nigga would do and treated her with respect.”
She’s not up there talking down on me. All those things combined creates an individual that comes up to your radio station and do dumb sh*t. It shouldn’t be about tearing that man down. We have an issue. And it’s either going to drag out or maybe in 10 years we’ll laugh about it over drinks. Just leave that sh*t alone.
He said nobody wants to hear him attack Chris in a rap, and nobody wants to hear Chris rap, so you’re not going to get anything out of it. Essentially saying Chris is not the usual rapper he’s beefed with in the past like Common or Jay-Z. So…leave it alone. Because “he’s good”.
Chris’ response? An “LOL” on Twitter.
Hit up that 2:50 mark to hear everything Drake had to say:
