Thoughts on the beef. Originally I was led to believe (optimistically) that the beef between Toronto’s Drake and Virginia’s Chris Brown was paparazzi/publicity based. However, Brown made it clear on June 30th that he has something on his mind.
In Hip Hop, there is this constant competition that will never be settled or satisfied. Even the greats couldn’t avoid the turmoil, Jay-Z/Nas, Easy-E/Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent with anyone who scuffs up his sneakers. Think of it like an NBA game, and in two of the latest battles, it’s YMCMB vs. G.O.O.D and Lupe Fiasco vs. Pete Rock.
