Started from the bottle now we're here. 

It was just over a year ago that Drake allegedly threw a champagne bottle at Chris Brown in a New York City nightclub, starting one of the most volatile beefs in recent hip hop history. Since then, on the more lighthearted side of the spectrum, Breezy said he would fight Drizzy in a televised celebrity boxing brawl. Then there was also a lawsuit, which wasn't as fun.

But now, Drake is calling a truce... kind of. Just weeks after the "Started From the Bottom" rapper slammed Chris Brown on the radio—"His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him... and that the woman that he loves [Rihanna] fell into my lap"—Drizzy is changing his tune.

The newest GQ cover star opens up inside the July issue of mag, explaining that he'd like to meet with Chris in person and talk things out, Oprah-style. "I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name," Drake said. "I really don't. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that's not going to happen. I'm not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I'm not going to back down."

"It's embarrassing, the amount of media coverage [there was around our fight]," he continued. "Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess."

It also sounds like the feud has taken its toll on the usually YOLO Drizzy. "If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly," he told GQ. "Like, it gets really dark."

Yikes. We don't want that to happen. Maybe since Chris Brown is now, like, doing things for the community and stuff, he'd be willing to talk to Drake? Or maybe Drizzy can send over and Edible Arrangement as a peace offering? Those things fix everything.
