Tyga and Big Sean Weigh in on Chris Brown + Drake’s Feud
Most of the hip-hop world attended the BET Awards on Sunday night (July 1), and most of them have an opinion on the intense beef between Chris Brown and Drake, especially following their nightclub fight. At the festivities, performer Tyga and Best New Artist winner Big Sean waxed wise on the feud.Tyga, who is on Drake’s label but a frequent Breezy collaborator, may be the ultimate diplomat. “Nobody wants to see them beef,” he told MTV News. “They both make great music, they’re both talented, but at the end of the day, as men, they have to figure out what they want to do. Chris is my brother, Drake is family too, so it’s like at the end of the day, they gotta handle that like men,” he added. “It’s like nobody else can mediate that, and it’s like that’s how it goes sometimes.”
Big Sean shared similar sentiments. “Hopefully they get it resolved, honestly, man,” Sean said. “People ain’t got no time for no beef. People ain’t got no time to be beefin’. We workin’ too hard for our fam, for our kids, our unborn kids to have a bright future. Nobody got no time for that.” Sean was quick to add, “I’m real good friends with Chris. I’mma make sure I tell him that to his face.”
Pusha T, Big Sean’s G.O.O.D. Music cohort, used the opportunity to praise Brown’s lyrics without necessarily commenting on the actual feud. “Chris is so artistic, man,” Push said in regards to Brown’s Drake diss track. “He’s just a free spirit, so you just gotta like it and accept it for what it is. Lyrically, I think he gets busy. He’s a writer.”
The emcees join Nicki Minaj, who also expressed her opinion on the beef and brawl — except she sided with Drake. “Young Money till the death of me. I don’t approve of talented people doing things that aren’t conducive to an amazing career,” she said pointedly. “And so — you know — I spoke to Drake and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt. I’m like, ‘Baby you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that.’ He did nothing wrong of course, rumors are rumors, but I told him to remember who you are.”
Only time will tell what really went down, but we just hope they can get along. Maybe a collaboration is in order!
