It has been widely reported that early Thursday morning, Chris Brown snatched the mike from the DJ at the Emerson Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif., after the DJ played a Drake song. Reportedly, Brown then said "F*ck Drake," but the question is: Did he really say that? A newly released video from that incident allows viewers to decide for themselves.
The odds, it would seem, are high. After all, last summer, there was a huge brawl between the teams of Chris Brown and Drake at the W.I.P. nightclub in New York City. The incident took place on June 14.
Just this week, both Drake and Chris Brown have been hit with dual lawsuits as a result of the brawl. First, the club owners filed a suit against the two celebrities, alleging that Brown and Drake "ordered security personnel, bodyguards, friends and entourage to join the fight, which erupted into a violent brawl on a massive scale."
A few days after that lawsuit, a second suit was filed, as a NYC-based male model claiming that he suffered "severe personal injuries" including a severed tendon on his right hand, thanks to the flying shards of glass from broken bottles.
With all that, you'd hardly expect the two to be fans of each other.
In the clip, Brown first gives a sort of monologue about his close friends. He says:
OK man, this is for my homies. The n*****s that never really had sh*t. ... "My n****s ridin' for me ...
Then, Chris Brown says what sounds like "F*ck Drake!" before the music begins again.
Naturally, much of the audio in the embedded video is hard to understand -- including that section of the audio. So, it's possible Brown said something like "Duck Cake," asking for a strange type of confection, or warning that someone was throwing a piece ("Duck, cake!").
Somehow, we don't believe it. Judge for yourself, with the embedded video.
