So I am pretty sure that everyone in world is aware of Chris Brown and Frank Oceans’ little “scuffle” that recently took place [shocking]. This is not the only altercation that Brown and Frank have been involved in. These two have been at it since the beginning of Oceans career from arguing back and forth via Twitter, why? Who knows. But what we do know is that this is nothing but high school-my-lyrics-are-better-than-yours-male-echo drama. You would think that they would have better things to do with their time beside going back and forth with one another on Twitter and fighting over a parking space. Yes, a parking space. The physical altercation took place outside of a recording studio, assuming the two pulled up at the same time, words were exchanged and then blows were thrown. I would have loved to know exactly what was said before they fought. In addition, I feel like there is more brewing between these two and there is a deeper meaning behind their dislike for one another. Either way it goes, it’s just plain out ridiculous and both need a bit more of maturity under their belt. I am more of a fan for Frank Ocean for more than I am for Chris Brown due to the fact that Franks’ lyrics have more depth, in contrast to Chris which are just written to the beat. So if the beef is between their song written skills? Hands down, Frank Ocean has won that fight. In other words, I really hope these two find a common ground and agree to disagree before it gets out of hand.
On a more serious matter, Rick Ross aka “Mr. Rozay”, was allegedly a target of a drive- by shooting on Las Olas Boulevard in Fresno, CA. Luckily, Ross as well as his girlfriend who was with him at the time of the incident, walked away shaken, but no serious injuries was done. If this situation sounds familiar, you are right. It happened years ago (in California as well) to a well-known rapper by the name of Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace. He was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting at a stop light leaving a party at a local club. Unfortunately, this case still reminds unsolved and his death still leave sadness to those who grow up listening to his music as well as to those in the music industry. It’s a freighting thought how the two are similar to each other, but one was spared a chance to change. Hopefully, this is a wake up called for Mr. Rozay.
This rap game has to change.
