In a discussion over his career and personal life with Rap Radar which was a video published on the 25th of December, Drake reveals details about his ex Rihanna and the drama with Chris brown.
Canadian rapper, Drake wasn’t afraid to reflect on his feelings when he sat down with Rap Radar. On a video posted on his YouTube channel, the rapper gave explanations to topics that bothered the mind of fans, this included his feelings for the Fendi CEO, Rihanna and the feud with Chris brown.
The “hotline bling” crooner and the “indigo” singer who recently collaborated on a song “No guidiance” were known to be at logger heads with each other due to some misunderstandings over certain things.
“We’ve come together before and tried to link and make music and I think we were always kind of forcing it. I think there was always resentment on both sides,” Drake told Rap Radar about working with Chris. “You know, really at the end of the day when you kind of step away from it and break it down you start to feel silly ’cause it’s over girl stuff, you know? But obviously, that can snowball into real sh*t and that’s what happened in this situation.”
“I think we just both grew up to the point that that person that was in the middle of us is like, no longer a part of either of our lives currently and I have the utmost love and respect for her,” he continued. “I think of her as family more than anything.”
Drake reveals, he wasn’t sure about the collaboration initially because he didn’t know how Rihanna would feel about it, he said;
“I actually had a moment of hesitation before because I didn’t want her to ever feel disrespected by me linking up with him but I also know how many nights she knows that me and him have both been consumed by this issue,” he said. “I think she’s a good person with a good heart that would rather see us put that issue to bed than continue childish sh*t that can end up in a serious situation, so I decided to go ahead with it.”
The feud which went on for about 7 years seemed to have ended in reconciliation as the two musicians have been spotted hanging out on several occasions. “I was hearing from people that he was in a really good space to link up and I think that show when he came out was one of those best buds moments,” he admitted. “I just always really had a lot of admiration for his talent and I think finally he gave me the mutual respect and admiration”
Drake and Rihanna who had quite an unstable relationship from 2009 to 2016 also seemed to be in good terms.
