Drake opens up about his feud with Chris Brown over Rihanna in the July issue of GQ.

The rapper tells the magazine, “I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen.” As for the pair’s nightclub brawl in New York last summer, Drake shares, “I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down.”

The “Started From the Bottom” singer confesses, “It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage. Two rappers fighting over the woman.” “He’s not even a rapper, but still, it’s the last way you want your name out there,” Drake says, adding, “It distracts from the music. But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess.”

Drake goes on to reveal, “If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly.” Here the GQ reporter notes that it’s not clear whether Brown is referring to his feud with Brown ending badly, or whether the rapper is expressing concern for Rihanna’s safety. When asked to clarify, Drake will only say, “Like, it gets really dark.”

The mag hits newsstands on June 25. What do you think about Drake’s comments on Chris Brown and Rihanna?
