Just because there are no bottles flying in the air doesn't mean the fight between Chris Brown and Drake has settled down. Instead of a bar brawl, however, it's become a war of the words. (Looks like that boxing match is off the table.)
Yesterday, DJ Orator released a new Chris Brown track, which he promoted as a "Drake diss." In the description, he wrote, "I had to put this out to see the reaction of all those following the Chris vs. Drake drama."
E! Online quotes the most inflammatory lyrics: "One on one, what you scared, bruh? Huh, matter of fact, take care, bruh." Take Care is, of course, the title of Drake's latest album — which makes those fighting words.
A fuck nigga, 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 nigga no green light
This head up, my bread up, one-on-one, what you scared, bruh?
Matter fact, take care bruh, you a pussy nigga
My nigga Tunechi, yeah that nigga 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
No response yet from Team Drake. Neither side has said much about the incident since it happened, although Drake made some vague comments at a show a few days after. "A nigga in the corner is standing there looking at you funny," Drake said. "You bump elbows with him on the way to the bathroom, but really there's only one nigga that you got to think about."
Doesn't have quite the same punch as Chris Brown's track, but it gets the meaning across.
On the one hand, this all seems petty and immature — mostly because it is. On the other, perhaps this burgeoning rap battle signals an end to violence. If Chris Brown and Drake are willing to drop their bottles and settle this like recording artists, more power to them. This way, it's less likely anyone will get caught in the crossfire.
