If you thought Chris Brown and Drake were getting any closer to deading their feud, think again. Breezy took the opportunity to throw a shot to his musical nemesis when he appeared on the remix of Young Jeezy’s “R.I.P.” single, which dropped Friday (March 29) on DramaLikeTheDJ.com.
“Dearly departed, I bought a plane I departed/ And if you started from the bottom, go on and come out the closet,” Chris rhymes on the song’s final verse, making a clear reference to Drake and his “Started from the Bottom” single.
The two made major headlines last June after a now-infamous bottle-throwing brawl in a New York City nightclub, which reportedly involved both men and members of their respective entourages. While the feud has quietly carried on, there has been a subliminal war of words brewing.
After the club incident, Brown addressed the beef in an unofficial remix of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” single. “They throwing bottles, I’m throwing models,” he rapped before delivering “OVO you overdose/ Screaming YOLO, no I live twice.”
Many believe Drake took a swipe with his verse from Aaliyah’s posthumous single “Enough Said” last August. “Running through the city with n—as I’d give a kidney/ Selling under 150, you n—as gotta be kidding,” Drizzy rapped, leading many to believe he was insulting Brown, who sold 135,000 copies of his Fortune album when it was released in July 2012.
The feud is believed to be over Brown’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna, who is also said to have been romantically involved with Drake as well. Earlier this month, Drake seemingly took another light jab on his fiery “5AM in Toronto.” “Sinatra style I’m just being frank with ya/ I mean, where you think she’s at where when she ain’t with ya,” he spit, leaving many to speculate that the spat between the two inspired the line.
Brown wasn’t the only one getting things off of his chest on the “R.I.P.” remix either: Jeezy also expressed his distaste with MTV’s “Hottest MCs in the Game VIII” list and the fact that he wasn’t included. “Trap star bitch spell it with a big ‘T’/ Give a damn if I never be a hot MC,” he rapped.
