Drake vs. Chris Brown: The Latest Installment Hits the Airwaves

Maybe Drake was a tad peeved that that Breezy/RiRi break-up announcement appears to be moot or maybe he wasn’t too thrilled with the suggestion (by Brown) on Young Jeezy’s “R.I.P" that Drake “come out of the closet” but whatever the cause, the usually composed (at least in public) rapper seems pretty out of sorts.

Last night, during an interview with hip-hop journalist Elliot Wilson on his “Keep It Thoro” internet radio show, the rapper lashed into Brown saying:

“Don’t ask me sh— about that man when I come up there and leave that man alone. Stop praying on his insecurities. His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, than I’m more popping than him and that at one point in life the woman that he loves fell into my lap.”

“I did what a real n---a would do and treated her with respect,” he said.

On a more conciliatory note, the rapper was adamant that the issue was between the two of them and he's not a fan of the way it is publicly playing out, stating:

“It shouldn’t be about tearing that man down. It shouldn’t be about wanting to see me and him tear each other down.
We have an issue and it’s either gonna drag out or maybe in ten years we’ll laugh about it over drinks, just let us solve that sh--.”

He also wants the world to know that he doesn’t care:
“I’m not thinking about that man at all, or that girl, straight up.”

Commendable, but a bit hard to believe considering he just spent an interview thinking (and talking) about the dude. 

But it does look like Drake's not keen to engage in more real-life fisticuffs with Breezy. I guess we'll just have to make do with this...
