Drake made a rare public comment about his feud with Chris Brown in an interview in July’s GQ magazine.
“I don’t want that guy’s name to be synonymous with my name. I really don’t,” he told the magazine, as reprinted in the New York Daily News. “But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess.”
The pair famously brawled in a NYC club last year after taunting one another about their respective relationships with Rihanna. Drake said he fears that Brown’s association with Rihanna could meet a bad end.
“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 said.
