It seems that Chris Brown and Drake won’t be shaking hands anytime soon. The former mocks the latter, who briefly dated Rihanna post after she split from him, when teaming up with rising star Kendrick Lamar in a revamped version of Young Jeezy’s single called “R.I.P.”
“Dearly departed, I bought a plane I departed/ And if you started from the bottom, go on and come out the closet,” the occasional rapper spits his verses. Although he doesn’t mention any name, it’s not hard to figure out that he makes a reference to Drizzy’s single “Started From the Bottom”.
Breezy’s lyrics might be a reply to his love rival’s song “5AM in Toronto.” The Young Money rhymer made a subtle mocking shout-out to the R&B singer in it, “Sinatra style I’m just being frank with ya/ I mean, where you think she’s at where when she ain’t with ya.”
The feud between Chris and Drake came to attention when they were involved in a bottle-hurling fight when running into each other while clubbing in New York last year. The feuding artists took shots at each other ever since. RiRi never once commented on the two men’s rivalry.
In an unofficial remix of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like”, Chris dissed Drake in his lyrics, “They throwing bottles, I’m throwing models” and “OVO you overdose/ Screaming YOLO, no I live twice,” referring to the Canadian MC’s OVO label and the YOLO catchphrase he made famous.
Drake then seemed to fight back with his rhymes in Aaliyah’s posthumous single “Enough Said”, “Running through the city with n—as I’d give a kidney/ Selling under 150, you n***as gotta be kidding,” taking a dig at Chris for the 135,000 copies he sold with his 2012 album “Fortune”.
