Chris Brown and Drake’s beef, depending on your standpoint, is either a travesty where one person’s clearly wronged or the most hilarious development to occur in music (if you don’t think about the people whose jobs are endangered cause of it.) It could’ve gone one of two ways from the initial fight. One, it could’ve gotten even more hilarious, perhaps if that boxing match actually happened. Or two, it could devolve into the standard unfunny baseline of passive-aggressive verses on other people’s songs. (Continued fighting is not one of the options because this is Chris Brown and Drake, and come on.)
And seriously–did anyone think something other than option two was going to happen? Here’s the verse in question, from Game’s remix of Chief Keef’s ‘I Don’t Like.” Note how careful Brown is not to burn bridges with Wayne or Nicki Minaj, probably because with Drake and Rihanna (mostly) out of the running, he really can’t afford to lose any more high-profile collaborators.
A fuck ni**a, that’s that shit I don’t like/ They throwin’ bottles, I’m throwin’ models, just ’cause I give a bitch long pipe. Doing shows on the soccer field/ that’s dome right? I be singin’, he be singin’, so it’s on, sight/ But hold up, I ain’t give a ni**a no green light/ This head up, my bread up, one-on-one, what you scared, bruh?/ Matter fact, take care bruh, you a pu**y ni**a/ My ni**a Tunechi, yeah that ni**a nice/ Shout out to Nicki, man that ass tight/ Them eyebrows, man, them shits is yikes/ OVO, you overdosed, screamin’ YOLO no, I live twice.
