Young Money rapper Tyga recently gave his take on the brewing feud between labelmate Drake and longtime collaborator Chris Brown and claimed the media is fueling the situation.
Although Chris Breezy recently went at Drake with a freestyle diss, Tyga said fans should take the situation lightly.
"I don't think it's like a real beef," Tyga said in an interview. "It's the media and stuff just blowing it up. But at the end of the day, I'm friends with both of them. It's like high school, you got competition. You got the popular people that are always in competition. That's really what it is at the end of the day. I would love to see them make music together and squash everything." (Much Music)
Earlier this week, New York rapper A$AP Rocky also pointed his finger at media outlets for pumping up the feud.
"I wanna see Chris Brown and Drake squash that beef," Rocky said. "I hate it, I hate that those brothers, everybody's fighting, yo. I just want to promote positivity because I mean, for real for real, both of those guys are talented, and it just sucks that the media's hyping this up. That's what they did to Pac and Biggie. Not saying that it's ever that serious, to that extent because nobody's gonna die, I just feel [the media] can make and break a lot of relationships and personally, I just wish that those guys would make up. Drizzy's my brother and I just wish they would cut it out." (Necole Bitchie)
A couple weeks ago, Tyga reacted to Breezy getting at Drake on his "I Don't Like" freestyle.
Tyga, who is a part of Lil Wayne's Young Money crew alongside Drake, has been a longtime friend and collaborator of Chris Brown's. In 2010, Tyga and Breezy dropped their collaborative Fan of a Fan mixtape, so T-Raw is kind of stuck in the middle. "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 said. "It's like nobody else can mediate that, and it's like that's how it goes sometimes." (MTV)
On the "I Don't Like" freestyle diss Brown takes multiple shots at Drizzy.
"A f*ck n*gga, that's the sh*t I don't like / They throwin' bottles, I'm throwin' models, 'cause I give a b*tch long pipe / Doin' shows on the soccer field, that's dome, right? / I be singin', he be singin', so it's on sight / But hold up, I ain't give a n*gga no green light / This head up, my bread up, one-on-one, what, you scared, bruh? / Matter of fact, take care, bruh / You a p*ssy n*gga / My n*gga Tunechi, yeah that n*gga nice / Shout out to Nicki, man, that a** tight / Them eyebrows? Man, them sh*ts is yikes / OVO, you overdose, screamin' Y.O.L.O. though, I live twice!" ("Don't Like" Freestyle)
