Fans have waited a long time to see the beef between the two hip-hop singers decease. Over the years we've watched a love triangle feud brew like no other. Chris seemingly has had a hard time recovering his feelings from a violently publicized relationship between himself and Rihanna back in 2009. Even dating his current girlfriend at the time, Karrueche, Chris found himself still harboring feelings for the Kiss it Better singer. In 2012, he released a short video where he admitted to his love triangle stating that he'd had a hard time choosing between the two women. In the video, he asks if it is possible to love two different people at the same time.
Brown goes on to say:
"I'm a little drunk, so I'm gonna be honest... You know when you share history with somebody, then you tend to fall in love with somebody else. It's kinda difficult. You know what I'm sayin'? Is there such a thing as loving two people? I don't know. I don't know if that's possible but for me, I just … I feel like that."
That same year, Chris Brown's other love triangle stirred up some issues for him. A drunk night out partying lead to an aggressive altercation at a New York City nightclub with Drake.
The fight took place at W.I.P (Work in Progress Night Club) with an all-star guest list populated the room with artist like Mary J. Blige. Ne-Yo, Fabolous, Adrienne Bailon, Juelz Santana, and Meek Mill according to Complex.
The wild brawl began after Chris Brown, hanging with a full entourage, sent a bottle of Ace of Spades over to Drakes section. Drake then reportedly turned down the gifted bottle with a note stating that Drake was now with Rihanna and that Chris needs to deal with it.
War quickly ensued as the two parties began throwing glass bottles and punches at one another.
Things didn't end well as the two artists have not had much interaction in the last 6 years. We got a little bit of hope back in June when Chris gave Drake's Scorpion album a co-sign by posting a screenshot of the cover onto his Instagram. Now it appears the two may have made up, but time will tell.
Friday was a sad day in hip-hop following the untimely death of rapper Mac Miller who was found dead in his home from an apparent overdose. We're not sure if Drake and Chris Brown came together during a time in need or just realized that life is short, but we're happy that this feud seems to be coming to an end.
