(AllHipHop News) It’s been over a year since the bottle throwing incident between Drake and Chris Brown at a New York City nightclub, but apparently the feud continues. Drake will appear in the July edition of GQ magazine, and in the cover article the Toronto rapper gives his take on the current situation with Brown.
“I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t,” says Drake according to radaronline. “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.”
Drake is currently prepping for the release of his third studio album, Nothing Was The Same, and a fall tour with R&B star Miguel, and he says he wants to focus on his music and not on beef. He worries that the end results of the continuous conflict could turn out bad.
“It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage,” says Drake. “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… If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly.”
Drake also reveals in the article that Nothing Was The Same was inspired by Marvin Gaye’s 1978 classic break-up album Here, My Dear, and it will feature Curtis Mayfield and Whitney Houston samples.
