Here we go again guys
Drake and Chris Brown‘s feud has gone through many different phases and evolutions, but it all pretty much comes down to their complicated respective relationships with Rihanna. Still, despite the fact that neither party has dealt with Rihanna in a serious capacity for some time, their “beef” is still alive and well. Last summer, it appeared that wasn’t going to be the case. Canadian border control was reportedly the only thing that stopped Drake bringing Chris Brown out for a surprise performance at his annual OVO Fest in August, and the two were photographed in the studio. There was also that ESPY Awards skit that everyone presumed was the official-unofficial end to the tension between the two superstars.
Unfortunately, they’ve sung a different tune in 2015. In light of Tyga‘s issues with Drake, highlighted by Drake’s jab at the “AYO” rapper on his “6PM In New York” track, Chris Brown has gone back on the offensive when it comes to Drake. He’s refused to go in depth about their relationship in the interviews he’s done in the past week, called him “a fan” on The Breakfast Club, and flat out said “I don’t mess with dude” on Ebro In The Morning.
Over the weekend, Drake performed in Auckland, New Zealand for the first time, and threw a light jab at Chris Brown, presumably in retaliation to all of the jabs Chris has thrown over the past few days. While performing “Energy,” Drizzy turned the “I got rap n****s that I gotta act like I like” into…
Drake performs “HYFR” into “Energy”…”I got r&b niggas that I gotta act like I like.” then “Started From The Bottom”. #Auckland
