Chris Brown and Drake’s friendship has seen some serious twists and turns over the years. Although they started off as friendly associates, their relationship began to sour in 2010 when the Toronto-based rapper was linked to Breezy’s ex-girlfriend, Rihanna. From social media jabs to the bar brawl heard around the world in 2012, it’s easy to forget that these two were friends before they were foes. And now it looks like they’re back to being friends again? It’s definitely hard to keep up with their saga! That’s why VH1 has broken it down for you.
New photos on Instagram show that the two have been working together in the studio, leading us to believe that they’ve buried the hatchet following Brown’s release from prison. We hope this rekindled friendship lasts for a long time because we’re anxious to hear their latest collaboration. While we wait, here’s a look at Chris Brown and Drake’s relationship over the years.
Drake revealed in an interview with ExtraTV that he and Chris Brown were in the studio together. The two were also spotted clubbing in a New York nightclub. Drake and Rihanna dating rumors also started to make the rounds at this time.
Drake is featured on the official remix of Brown’s song “Deuces” that also featured Kanye West, Rick Ross, T.I., Fabolous, and Andre 3000. The two were also spotted sitting close to each other at a Miami Heat game alongside Birdman, Mack Maine, Lil Wayne, and Bow Wow.

In a UK radio interview, DJ Whoo Kid says Chris Brown elbowed Drake in the chin only to tweet later that it was a joke.
Chris Brown and Meek Mill got into a Twitter beef, supposedly over Rihanna. Drake chimed in tweeting “Oh that’s your ho? That’s our ho too. Lol,” to add insult to injury. An unheard track called “Yamaha Mama” featuring both Brown and Drake unexpectedly hit the Internet.
Drake addressed the feud again in a GQ magazine interview stating that “I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name” and that he wishes he and Brown “could talk it out man-to-man”.
CB posted a video on Instagram of him rapping to Drake’s “0 to 100,” which was eventually deleted from his profile.
The two were supposed to perform together on stage Monday night of Drake’s annual OVO Fest in Toronto but Chris’ legal troubles were allegedly the reason his management canceled the appearance at the last minute. [Photo: Getty Images]
