R&B singer Chris Brown is confirming recent buzz and rumors about his past issues with Young Money’s Drake dissolving by taking to his Facebook page.
Although he did not offer much in the form of proof, Chris Breezy did reveal he was linked up with Drizzy some time last night (October 2).
Chris Brown and Drake are back to being buddies. The pair, who allegedly brawled at a New York nightclub last year, have apparently put aside their differences and it seems they’re making music together. The unusual development was revealed with a six-word post on Brown’s Facebook page: “Hangin with Drake in the studio.” For a refresher, things allegedly got out of hand last December after the two — both previously rumored to be romantically linked to Rihanna — engaged in a tense back-and-forth involving a bottle of champagne sent over to Drake’s table and a nasty note sent back to Brown. It’s unclear precisely what the pair have been getting up to in the studio, though it’s likely Drake has joined in on sessions for Brown’s collab-filled “X” album. (Billboard)
According to recent reports, Chris Breezy and Drizzy formally ended their dispute a few days ago in Nevada.
The musicians — who got into an epic fracas at Soho nightclub W.I.P. in 2012 — hugged it out at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas over the weekend. Sources tell us Drake and his crew came to the music fest on Friday specifically to watch Brown’s performance. “Drake came on Friday with his whole crew, and watched Chris’ entire set,” we’re told. After Brown came off stage, a spy told us: “They were backstage hugging and drinking.” We’re told the reunion went so well, the two even talked about creating some tracks together.

Coincidentally, a Def Jam executive is reportedly the key reason they managed to come together.
Sources tell us the mediator of the reunion was Def Jam music exec Abou Thiam — who’s one of Brown’s managers and a brother of rapper Akon. We’re told Thiam is “very friendly with Drake, and worked to try and get him and Chris together to put their differences aside.” (New York Post Page Six)
Over the summer, Cash Money boss Baby said he believed Drizzy and Breezy were ready to move on from the beef topic.
“I don’t know their situations. Drake is my family, I don’t cut the corners with that. I don’t play with that,” Birdman revealed in an interview. “When it comes to my family, I’m prepared to die for that and that’s the little homie. We rock with Chris, we don’t have any problem with the lil’ homie whatsoever. Really though, [the beef] is old. It’s past due. Even them, they’re feeling the same way.” (RapFix)
