And so it begins! Some weeks after their much publicized brawl at NYC’s Club W.I.P., Chris Brown has come out swinging at Drake. Rapping over Kanye West‘s remix of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” Breezy brings the fighting words. Brown calls Drake out as a bottle thrower — a charge Drake has adamantly denied — and takes the Toronto rapper to task for his music, his crew, and most personally his looks. “Them eyebrows, man,” he raps, “them sh**’s is yikes!” That, there, is where it really hurts.
Save for a few nice words reserved for associates Lil Wayne (who he calls “nice”) and Nicki Minaj (whose assets he finds “tight”), Breezy is sure to waste no breath not on Drake. “One on one, what you scared, bruh? Matter of fact, Take Care, bruh,” he raps, making reference to Drake’s last album, Take Care, and calling him forth for battle. He strips Drake of his rapper title, saying, “I be singing, he be singing, so it’s on,” making clear that he — although counted as a crooner first, generally — is fit for the lyrical spar. And of Drake’s October’s Very Own crew and their much bantered about motto, Breezy makes clear that he thinks he’s got one up on them: “OVO, you overdosed, screamin’ YOLO — no, I live twice.”
Brown adds some weight with the menacing beat here, but Drake seems to be working hard to keep his distance from the incident, and the eyebrow bashing aside, it’s hard to say if this will be enough to get Drake worked up. That said, we believe that diss tracks are the best venue for the two to duke it out on, and we’d love to hear what he’s got to say. So, Drake, it’s your draw. What have you got?
