Russell Simmons has announced that both Chris Brown and Drake have ended their feud and have no desire to continue the beef.
The hip-hop mogul claims he spoke to both camps in order to make sure the drama doesn't escalate, following their bloody fight on Wednesday night that left several people in hospital. While there have been reports that Young Money rapper Drake may be arrested for allegedly starting the bottle-throwing fight, Russell says the situation can now be put in the past.
"I have spoken to both Chris Brown and Drake's camp in the past few days, fearing that the situation from the other night might escalate. I never asked what happened or who started it, that's not my business," Russell wrote on his website, GlobalGrind.
"Both camps have told me that they have no interest in taking this any further. So, for those who are looking for the next Biggie/Tupac beef, there is nothing here to see and definitely nothing for anyone to try to get involved in from the outside."
"Many young people are watching Drake and Chris very closely right now, and it is in their power to send the right message. I have extraordinary respect for the artistry of both of these young men. Let's keep encouraging them to keep create good music that uplifts the world."
The fight was allegedly about Rihanna who was in a relationship with Chris Brown before he assaulted her in 2009, and went on to date Drake.
