Chris Brown Drops Drake Diss Track, Feuding Stars Snag BET Awards
Chris Brown is still fuming over an alleged bottle-throwing incident with Drake. Just a day before the two music superstars won trophies at the BET Awards, Brown continued his feud with the YMCMB spitter on the freestyle remix of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” featuring Game.
The diss track was inspired by a June brawl at Manhattan’s W.i.P. nightclub. The lyrics contain such pointed Drake jabs as “One on one, what you scared bruh? Matter fact, take care bruh,” an obvious reference to Drake’s Take Care album.
The war of words flared up between Brown and Drake after a bottle-throwing melee that left Brown with a gash on his chin. Following the June 18 incident, which left several people injured, Breezy took to Twitter to mock his rival, questioning the manhood of Drake for throwing a bottle.
While there has been much talk about the incident and possible criminality, no one from either camp has been charged.
Brown isn’t only throwing rap jabs at his rival, last night (July 1) he collected a few BET Awards and lit up Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium with high-power performances of “Don’t Wake Me Up” and “Turn Up The Music.”
He took home a trophy for Best Male R&B Artist and, for the third year in the row, he won the Fandemonium Award.
Thanks BET for letting me perform and all the support!

Drake matched Brown’s Best with a top award of his own. The Canadian rapper took home the Award for Best Male Hip-Hop Artist but did not perform at the show. Brown’s anticipated album Fortune is out in the U.K. and is released in the U.S. July 3. —Keith Murphy, CBS Local
