The Word: Yay, Chris Brown and Drake are friends again

chris_brown_fight1

Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, and the other beat up a lady one time.

Chris Brown and Drake have quashed their beef and may even become pals, according to Page Six. The pair apparently met up at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas this weekend, which Drake and his crew attended specifically to catch Brown’s performance.

“Drake came on Friday with his whole crew, and watched Chris’ entire set,” a source said.

The happy reunion continued after the show: “They were backstage hugging and drinking,” another source reports. Apparently, the meeting went so well that the pair are talking about collaboration, even though no one should ever want to be friends with Chris Brown or work with him or talk to him, so he eventually has to become a vagrant and live in the dump. Hopefully Drake is just pretending to be his friend so it’ll sting even more when he has to become a bag man.

Brown recently took time off from drinking fruity cocktails and hitting the beach in Hawaii to tag a wall with epithets like “F— police” alongside what is apparently a shout-out to the Bloods gang.

Brown, he of sound life choices, signed his illegal street art with the words “Fruits Piru,” which people who know more about the intricacies of urban gang life than we do speculate is a reference to the Fruit Town Piru gang, a subset of the scary-as-hell L.A. gang.
