Drake Vs. Chris Brown: Beginning To Chin
The New York Post got a fist hand account [..#NoTypo..] of the Chris Brown / Drake showdown. Looks like a classic case of EGO-TRIPPEN... None of these niggas bout that life.. But, their bodyguards are. LOL Fuck that... Streetkode needs some bodyguards.
Hotheaded hip-hop stars Drake and Chris Brown turned a SoHo nightclub into a blood-soaked battlefield yesterday as they — and their entourages — fought with fists and bottles over the affections of Rihanna, sources and witnesses said.
“I am f--king the love of your life,” read a note sent from Drake’s table to Brown at about 4 a.m. after Brown ordered his rival’s table a bottle of pricey Armand de Brignac Champagne — commonly known as Ace of Spades, a witness said.
Rihanna — Brown’s singer ex-girlfriend who had also been linked to Drake — was not at the W.i.P. club, where Brown was buying bottles for several tables in the VIP section.
“I saw him tell the waitress to send a bottle to Drake’s table. I then saw a waitress come back with a piece of paper and gave it to Chris,” Ingrid Gutierrez, 21, a model who was sitting at Brown’s table, told The Post. “He looked upset and just threw it on the floor.”
Drake and a posse that included rapper Meek Mill and all their bodyguards then walked over to the table where a shirtless Brown was seated.
“They were giving him [Brown] the middle finger. They got into each other’s faces and were shouting at each other,” Gutierrez said. “Chris told Drake to f--k off, and the next thing I could hear is the sound smashed glass and mayhem started.
“Somebody in Drake’s group — I don’t think it was Drake — swung at Chris, but missed.
“Chris didn’t swing back, he just tried to brush them off. He told us, ‘Let’s go,’ but there were bottles flying at us. I saw one bottle was thrown, it looked like a vodka bottle, and hit Chris on the face,” she said.
“The anger from Drake’s entourage was terrifying.”
The bloodshed touched off a full-scale brawl in the basement club — where at least five bystanders were injured by flying bottles .
Brown’s bodyguard, Big Pat, suffered a gaping head wound.
W.i.P., connected to the much-larger Greenhouse club, was jammed at the time with a slew of celebrities — including Mary J. Blige, Trey Songz, Wale, Ne-Yo and NBA star Tony Parker — and their hangers-on.
Brown, 23 — on probation for[..]aulting Rihanna three years ago — suffered a deep gash on his face.
