The beef between Drake and Chris Brown has been escalating for years now and neither has been shy publicly talking about their distaste for one another. Despite being seen together in the studio last summer and supposedly deading the beef, it's clear that the rift between the two has not waned. While out in New Zealand for a concert in Auckland over the weekend, Drake took a subliminal shot at Breezy when he switched up the lyrics for his new song, "Energy," by rapping, "I got R&B niggas that I gotta act like I like."

Brown and Tyga were up early on radio this morning both at Hot 97 and on Power 105.1 and were asked about Drake. The singer didn't hold back and said straight up that, "I don't mess with dude."

“We making him hot by talking about [him],” said Brown. “I’m not taking [Tyga’s] side, but I don’t mess with dude.” He finally added, “I’m on probation. That’s all Ima say.”

The interview was part of the promo tour Brown and Tyga are on for their upcoming LP, Fan of a Fan: The Album. Drake took shots at Tyga on "6 PM In New York" off of If You're Reading This, It's Too Late and Tyga responded on Twitter saying, "Drake u still a bitch. All that sneak dissing is weak. Just pull up. I know where u live and u know my address.. U been ducking the fade from Brown."

Brown took another jab at Drake in his interview on Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club. This time Breezy commented on the alleged relationship between Drizzy and Rihanna.  “There’s nowhere else to go. Who else in this game is Rihanna gonna go to? Some corny singing rapper?! Who hotter than me?"
