The 26-year-old 'Successful' rapper says in a magazine interview that 'I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk' with Brown.
Rapper Drake talks about his all-out fight with Chris Brown which took place in a New York City nightclub last year in a recent interview featured in July edition of GQ. "I hear he has everything he could want now," he tells the magazine, referring to the fact that Brown and Rihanna were back together then.
The rapper confesses that he wants to talk to the "With You" singer about the incident. "I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name. I really don't. 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. I'm not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I'm not going to back down," the "Take Care" hitmaker explains.
Drake, however, admits that he is embarrassed with negative headlines that emerged from the brawl. "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," Drake says.
He adds, "If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly." When the magazine asks what he means, the Canadian rapper only says, "Like, it gets really dark."
Drake and Brown were partying at W.i.P nightclub in Manhattan last June, when the two reportedly exchanged rude texts and bottles to each other. Drake was said sending a note to Brown, suggesting that he slept with Rihanna. The note presumably led to the bloody feud.
Photos of the club which were taken after the fight show that the club was in a mess with shattered glasses and spilled alcohol on the floor. A bodyguard was pictured having a nasty wound on his forehead, while basketball player Tony Parker who was at the club had a scratched retina. Brown and Drake himself were injured in the incident.
