Drake made two blatant references to Wednesday’s bottle-throwing incident while performing in Long Island on Saturday.
Drake was giving a scheduled concert at the Jones Beach theater in Wantaugh, N.Y. Before starting his set, he made a reference to the incident at Manhattan’s W.i.P. club.
“When I woke up this morning, I had to think about a lot of things,” he said, according to the New York Daily News. “But the only thing I gave a f--- about was that I was in New York City tonight.”
He performed a few songs before referring to the incident again.
“It’s last call and you’re really too drunk to give a f---,” he said. “A n---- in the corner is standing there looking at you funny. You bump elbows with him on the way to the bathroom, but really there’s only one n---- that you got to think about.”
News reports that Drake would be arrested at the concert proved to be untrue, according to the Daily Mail. The concert went without incident, although TMZ reported that extra security was brought in prior to the concert.
Details over what exactly happened Wednesday night are still unclear. Chris Brown reportedly sent a champagne bottle to Drake. Drake refused the bottle and sent back a note that referred to Rihanna. Chris Brown’s entourage then allegedly started throwing ice cubes at Drake and soon bottles were being thrown in both directions.
The incident left several people injured including Brown, NBA star Tony Parker and an Australian tourist who was hit in the head with a bottle and needed 16 stitches to close the wound.
Earlier in the day, Chris Brown gave an interview to MTV where he shouted out to Drake.
"I think the culture is starting to be very different and be [accepting of] diversity," he said. "You don't have to be the hardest of the hardest rapper or the toughest of the toughest guy to make a statement ... as far as your music. ... So with Justin [Bieber] and me and you've got Drake and other people that rap that aren't the DMXs of the world — it's a different day.
