Chris Brown just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days. This past weekend, the headline-grabbing singer found himself caught in yet another heated Twitter feud with Odd Future members, Frank Ocean and Tyler, The Creator, after Ocean took offense to what was seemingly a compliment from Brown.
The war of the words began last Friday, June 17, when Brown took to his Twitter page and compared Ocean to singer-songwriter James Fauntleroy and songwriter-producer Kevin Cossum.
“I f— with Frank Ocean! Reminds me of a young James Fauntleroy or Kevin Cossum,” tweeted Brown. Although unbeknownst to most of general public, Fauntleroy has worked with big-name acts like Brandy, Timbaland and Rihanna, while Cossum’s A-List credits include Mary J. Blige, Keri Hilson and Brown himself.
Unfortunately, Ocean didn’t take too kindly to Brown’s comparison and fired back sarcastically at the “Look At Me Now” singer.
“i f—s wit chris brown, reminds me of a young sisqo or ike turner,” tweeted Ocean, adding, “i just dont like underhanded comments. thats all im saying.”
Enraged, Chris Brown lashed back at Ocean with a slew of fiery tweets, taking aim at Ocean and the rest of his Odd Future band.
“it was a compliment you b—h a– n—a. Everybody claim to be the devil till they meet him,” tweeted Brown, following with, “I was tryna help yo sales n—a. You f—-n clown! You and @fucktyler would be casted great for planet of the apes! f–k odd future! Make sure y’all smalltime n—-s stick yo chess out when u speak to me.”
Odd Future front man, Tyler, The Creator, then joined the feud, blasting Brown with a flurry of snide comments.
“What’s Wrong Christopher? Amber Rose Stole Your Style Bro Bro? Why Are You Mad Tho? Like Really, You’re Bigger Than Us Christopher. You Act Like You Like To Eat Soup, Aren’t You A Role Model?” tweeted Tyler. “To All Of OFWGKTA, Stop Mentioning Christopher. He Needs To Go On A Time Out……..So How About Them Lakers?”
Shortly afterward, West Coast rapper Game tried to step in and act as a peacemaker in the incident.
“I’m Done Dude. Thanks,” Tyler eventually replied.
This isn’t the first time Brown and Tyler have found themselves squabbling on Twitter. Recently, the two traded digital jabs after Tyler took offense to Brown’s negative comments about music that promotes violence and death, which Tyler perceived as a jab to his group.
Ironically, in this situation, the violent gangster rapper seems to be the only mature artist that makes any sense. –nicholas robinson
