Drake is finally speaking up about the beef with Chris Brown and his side of things pretty much sounds like he is defending Brown and bashing him at the same time.
Drizzy has kept quiet on the bottle throwing beef that could be landing him in hot legal water, but the “Started from the Bottom” rapper is breaking his silence.
It’s no secret that the Canadian rapper is very laid back so his passive aggressive response during the East Village Radio interview was only expected:
“For any media outlet that listens to this interview, don’t ask me sh-t about that man when I come up there. Leave that man alone and stop preying on his insecurities man. His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I’m more popping than him, and that at one point in life ,the woman that he loves fell into my lap and I did what a real n-gga would do and treated her with respect. So she’s not out there talking down on me. All of those things combined creates a n-gga that comes up to your radio station and is just gonna do dumb sh-t.”
You see what I mean about attacking Breezy and defending him at the same time? And that’s not all:
“But it shouldn’t be about tearing that man down, it shouldn’t be about wanting to see me and him tear each other down. We have an issue and it’s either gonna drag out, or maybe in ten years we’ll laugh about it over drinks, but let us solve that sh-t. It’s not me and Kendrick [Lamar], it’s not me and Hov, you’re not gonna get anything out of it. I don’t wanna hear that man rap, you know what I’m saying?”
Well all bets for a rap battle are off apparently – although it wouldn’t have been too exciting anyway consider the fact that Drake’s lyrics suggest he would be a clear winner.
It seems like we won’t get a Twitter beef out of this either. Instead of going off on his usual social media rant, he replied to the radio interview with a simple “LOL.”
All the drama has apparently only reinforced Drizzy’s distaste for radio interviews:
“I understand when it’s entertaining, when you feel that you might get some music out of it, but at the end of the day, nothing good can come of that situation, just leave that sh-t alone. That’s part of the reason why I don’t go up to radio. Sit up there and talk, talk, talk, I don’t wanna talk. People talk themselves into a mess. Playing my beat when he comes up there and try to get him to rap, c’mon man! That sh-t is like terrible.”
In the midst of all the drama and gossip talk during the interview, Drake did have a few positive things to say – not about Chris of course.
The actor turned rapper explained that the Rick Ross controversy was a huge eye-opener:
“Just realizing that when I get in that booth, not only is the microphone on, but the microphone is on. The world is listening. I think the situation the other day with the Rocko song is a wake up call for all of us. Rap is important. The world is listening. It’s a wake up call. If you are going to say something that is going to put you at risk, make sure it’s a message worth fighting for.”
Drake made it clear that Ross is still his “guy,” but he felt the situation just “clicked” with him.
He also took the time to clear up other beef rumors that suggested he was feeling salty towards The Weeknd after they signed with a different label other than his OVO.
“I mean, people make their own decisions,” he said. “He went on to do something that he felt was a great decision and more power to him. I talk to him all of the time and I look forward to what he has coming in the future.”
Meanwhile, it seems like Brown and Rihanna are back together – as we all predicted.
The Bajan beauty posted a photo of her snuggled up with her on-again off-again boyfriend with the caption, “This s*** look like a toupee.”
Honestly, this break up to make up thing has happened so often with the young lovers that we’re not even sure if it should be considered entertainment news anymore. Perhaps the real story will be when they finally decided to stay together or stay apart.
