Bad Boy Records’ Machine Gun Kelly recently offered his take on the alleged feud between Chris Brown and Drake, calling their publicized New York City brawl “the coolest thing” to happen in hip-hop as of late.
Co-signing the reported bottle-tossing incident, MGK embraced the violence.
“I think that’s the beauty of like a real rapper,” Kelly said in an interview. “You’re like, “Yo, this guy says it, and he lives it.” That’s what makes it sweet — When people ask me about the Drake and Chris Brown thing, I’m like, ‘Yo, that’s the coolest thing that happened in hip-hop for a long time. Thank you for fighting.’ You know what I mean? No one ever does that anymore; that’s so wack; that’s so ridiculous, man. So ridiculous. They ask me how does that feel; I’m like, ‘That’s the coolest thing ever, man.'” (Hot 97)
Over the weekend, Cash Money’s Birdman defended Drake in light of the fight accusations.
“Well, to me, I think n—as got Drake twisted. A lot of n—as be playin’, pitty-pattin’ with Drake. I don’t like that sh–, period,” Birdman said to us in an exclusive interview. “Drake is one of us, so if you f—in’ with Drake, you f—in’ with us, period!” Birdman wasn’t in attendance when the fight broke out at W.I.P. in NYC, but firmly believes the Take Care MC did nothing wrong. Drake alleges he wasn’t involved in the melee, which left a number of people injured including one of Brown’s bodyguards and NBA player Tony Parker. “To me, Drizzy ain’t did nothin’ wrong, he ain’t done nothin’ wrong to nobody. He just doin’ great music,” Bird said in defense of his artist. “He’s not a reckless guy out there just wildin’ out; he’s a humble kid makin’ great music.” (MTV)
A few days ago, Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill talked about what went down at the New York City nightclub.
“Chris and Drake, them two was there but it’s other people that be around that take sh*t to the next level,” Meek exclusively told XXL. “Things just happen in the club. I seen girls in there throwing bottles, all types of sh*t. All types of people. I never seen Chris Brown or Drake throw a bottle and I was there.” When XXL asked Meek if he threw a bottle during the melee, the Philadelphia MC offered two words: “F*ck no.” He proceeded to reveal that he and Breezy spoke right after the incident and don’t have a problem with each other.

Recently, West Coast rapper Game vouched for both Drizzy and Breezy saying they need to call a truce.
The Game knows a thing or two about celebrity feuds … and last night, the rapper had some advice for Chris Brown and Drake — squash that beef, ASAP. Game was leaving Roxbury nightclub in Hollywood when we asked about the bottle-throwing brawl in NYC. “Chris Brown is like my little brother, man … and Drake is a cool dude … they just need to cut that out. It ain’t worth it.” Game should know … he famously feuded with 50 Cent and G-Unit for years. But the rapper says he’s not in any hurry to help broker a peace treaty between his two friends — telling us, “I’m gonna stay out of their beef … it’s for the birds.” (TMZ)
