Chris Brown released a lyrical attack on Drake today over Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” beat. Chris’ remix features several jabs at Drake, his music, appearance and reputation — although Brown commends Drake’s Young Money counterparts Lil’ Wayne and Nicki Minaj–in lyrics: “One on one, what you scared bruh …Them eyebrows, man them sh–ts is Yikes!” and “OVO you overdose, YOLO no, I live twice!” Listen below.
Chris briefly references the alleged June 14 melee between him and members of Drizzy crew at NYC’s W.i.P. nightclub, saying “They throwing bottles/I’m throwing models.”
It’s still unclear what sparked that altercation between the two camps. MTV News reported that a fight broke out at trendy W.i.P. nightclub in NYC in which bottles were allegedly thrown. A photo posted on Brown’s Instagram showing the singer sporting a bloody gash on his chin quickly made its rounds after the incident. The singer’s bodyguard also sustained a head injury as did NBA star Tony Parker, Australian tourist Hollie C. and two more people. No arrests have been made.
Drake’s camp refuted claims that the “Headlines” rapper was involved in the incident. “Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.I.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began,” his rep told TMZ. “[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”
Last week Maybach Music rapper Meek Mill who was also in attendance spoke out on the incident telling “RapFix” Live he had no involvement in the incident.
“I don’t really be having those controversies like that, man. It’s just that the more hotter you get, they start talkin’,” Mill said.
Drake and Brown have been the subject of tabloid rumors of late, as buzz built that the two were fighting over singer Rihanna. Brown’s long-term relationship with the superstar famously exploded after he assaulted her in 2009, but they continued to be linked to one another. Drake has spoken several times that he and Rihanna are close, and allegedly had a brief fling, and the pair were spotted out together as recently as Memorial Day weekend in Miami.
