Frank Ocean is not over his January brawl with Chris Brown, and is using music to discuss the incident. In artist Earl Sweatshirt’s new song “Sunday,” Ocean raps a verse about the fight and disses Brown for not standing up for him when he won a Grammy award.
“Forgot you don’t like it rough, I mean he called me a fag---. I was just calling his bluff, I mean how anal am I gonna be when I am aiming my gun? And why is his mug all bloody? That was a three-on-one. Standing ovation at Staples, I got my Grammies in gold,” he raps.
When Ocean won the Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album in February, everyone in attendance stood to applaud — everyone except Chris Brown.
Brown, who was nominated in the same category, merely sat and clapped for Ocean, with whom he has had a rivalry for some years.
Prior to the Grammys, their dislike for one another turned violent in January while they were both at Westlake Studio in Los Angeles.
TMZ reports that both artists got into an altercation over a parking space. As Brown and his entourage were trying to leave Westlake, they were “blocked” by Ocean and his group.
“This is my studio, this is my parking spot,” the “Novacane” the singer allegedly said, before Brown tried to shake Ocean’s hand. After that, there are mixed reports as to whether Brown or Ocean’s friends hit first and started fighting.
The police were called around 10:45 p.m., but Brown was no longer at the scene. Ocean was, and no one pressed charges at the time. Six people were involved in the altercation, reports said. Later, Ocean's cousin, Sha'Keir Duarte, came forward and is suing Brown,24, claiming his bodyguard attacked Duarte, causing him permanent disability.
