Chris Brown and Frank Ocean decide to have a brawl

It’s usually the rap world that gets bad press surrounding brawls and arrests, however this week it was R’n’B singers Chris Brown and Frank Ocean who were making headlines for the wrong reasons. In a story that developed earlier in the week, it emerged that Chris Brown and Frank Ocean got into an altercation at a L.A recording studio, with differing reports as to the cause and nature of the fight. All that is clear at this point is that the long bickering duo and there crews had a good old fashioned brawl in front of numerous witnesses. This is becoming a regular occurrence for Brown, who is still embroiled in numerous lawsuits stemming from his nightclub fight with Meek Mill and Drake.

Somebody lied; Rick Ross does NOT have a chopper in his car! The self-proclaimed hard man Rick Ross tasted some of the life he raps about this week when his car was showered in bullets in an early morning drive-by shooting, causing the rapper to crash into a near-by wall. Details have remained sketchy on this all week, with arch rival 50 Cent claiming the whole event was staged as part of a publicity stunt for the rapper’s new album.
