Drake Wants Man-To-Man Talk With Chris Brown
Rapper tells US GQ mag he'd be keen to sort their differences...
Drizzy has since addressed their war of words during an interview with US GQ magazine, stating: "I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that's not going to happen.
"It's embarrassing, the amount of media coverage. Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music.
"But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess. I'm not confrontational but if someone challenges, I'm not going to back down. If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly... like, it gets really dark."
He also went on to discuss the direction of his upcoming album, Nothing Was the Same, with the publication, explaining that although he has mastered both rapping and singing, he's very much focused on his first love.
"This is my f***ing moment to say, 'If I wanted to rap all the time — really rap — I would, but I also love to make music. I'll do this for you right now," he tells the mag. "But it's for me, too, it's my story. ... I'm trying to get back to that kid in the basement, to say what he has to say. And I'm trying to make it last."
Part of Drake's story is his Started From the Bottom single, a song that left many critics questioning what "bottom" the rapper is referring to, considering that he first rose to fame as an actor on Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Drizzy added: "I think a lot of people wish their favourite rapper wrote it — as if a song like that should be gangster — but I was the one who wrote it, and everyone has their bottom."
