Last week, via iTunes, Drake released What a Time To Be Alive, his long-rumored retail mixtape collaboration with southern rapper Future. Now that the dust has settled, it looks like the Young MC has a few scores to settle.
On the list was long-time nemesis Chris Brown. The two haven’t gotten along since Drake briefly dated Rihanna, and the beef isn’t likely to end soon, especially after Drizzy name-checked Brown’s ex on his song, “Live From the Gutter.”
“This is for my n****s on the bulls*** and that nonsense, this is for my dawgs that go Karrueche with the chopsticks,” rapped Drake on the track.
Breezy seemed to take the mention in stride, responding on Instagram: “People who have had to sit and watch me for years do me and watch their females actually love me always show their insecurities… I’m content being Chris Brown. A lot of people are unhappy and a lot of these artists lie to the fans or rely on hype to gain substance.”
His newfound beef with Meek Mill also prompted plenty of shots if you read into every verse on the project, including the entirety of “30 for 30 freestyle.” However, it seems apparent he was clearly targeting Mill and Nicki Minaj on “Diamonds Dancing,” when he raps, “How we let it get like this I don’t know, but that n**** can’t save your soul, nah, doing me dirty, you doing me dirty, haven’t even heard from you. How can you live with yourself?”
Meek admitted to losing the first half of their battle, but still responded via Instagram with the preview of an upcoming song with the hook: “Money, power, respect, eating breakfast on a jet.”
