After a compliment gone bad from singer Chris Brown towards newcomer Frank Ocean that saw the two parties exchanging unkind words, both Brown and Ocean have put an end to the escalating drama. Today Brown, Ocean and Tyler the Creator all expressed heavy concerns deciding to put their differences aside and move forward in peace.
“alrite. this has to end" said Frank Ocean. "freeze on social networks for a minute. freeze on the internet. freeze on the matrix. real world time. brb,"
Brown chimed in making note he has no problems with anyone.
"This beef sh-t is stupid, @frank_ocean I respect ya music and you and Odd Future!" said Brown in an earlier tweet. "Ain't beefin' wit nobody. Ya'll can have that! Love"
Addressing a video that surfaced today showing his partner being harassed by a group of men, Tyler the Creator also called for an end to the escalating beef to avoid any potential violent outcome.
“Send 7 Dudes With A Camera To Make Frankie Look Like A Bi--h, Like, Really?” said Tyler. “And Its Not [Chris] That’s Doing It, Its The People Around Him. They Like ‘You Gonna Let Him Say That? F--k That Ni**a’. This S--t Has Gotten Outta Hand. Real S--t.”
The ceasefire comes same day video footage hit the Internet that showed Ocean being chastised by a group of men who appear to be supporters of Chris Brown. A visibly concerned Ocean drives in his BMW truck as the men follow in pursuit, taunting the producer while filming him on camera.
The online fracas began when Breezy gave Frank Ocean what seemingly was a compliment that Ocean took to be an underhanded slight.
Chris Brown’s tweet read, “I f--- with Frank Ocean! Reminds me of a young James Fauntleroy or Kevin Cossum” – James Fauntleroy is a singer-songwriter with writing credits for artists such as Brandy, Timbaland, Jordin Sparks and Rihanna. Kevin Cossum is a songwriter and producer who performed work with Mary J. Blige, Fabolous, Keri Hilson and Brown himself.
Frank Ocean took offense to Chris Brown’s tweet with a retort that read, “[I] f---s wit chris brown, reminds me of a young sisqo or ike turner.” Ocean then followed his comments with, “[I] just dont like underhanded comments. thats all im saying.”
Angered by Ocean’s words, Chris Brown took to Twitter and angrily addressed the OF singer. “[It] was a compliment you b---h ass n---a. Everybody claim to be the devil till they meet him,” tweeted Brown. He followed with, “[F]--k odd future! Make sure y'all smalltime n----s stick yo chess out when u speak to me.”
Breezy later apologized to his followers but not before some tough talk aimed at OFWGKTA. “I was on fairfax (Odd Future stomping grounds) yesterday and your so called posse was super quiet. Get better soldiers!” Chris Brown then added, “To all my fans, I'm sorry these ignorant ass n----s got me down to their level.”
Odd Future captain Tyler The Creator, no stranger to beef with Breezy, earned himself a “Top Tweet” nod with a tweet to Brown that read, “Why Are You Mad Tho? Like Really, You're Bigger Than Us Christopher. You Act Like You Like To Eat Soup, Aren't You A Role Model?”
While Brown refrained from further igniting the drama, the following day Ocean and Tyler once again threw dirt on Breezy's name at a concert at the House of Blues.
