After his online dustup with Migos rapper Offset, authorities paid a visit to Chris Brown’s southern California home to see if the singer was okay after he posted his address on Instagram publicly and dared the MC to pull up, the Daily Mail reports.
The two entertainers were feuding after Offset called him out for sharing a meme that allegedly mocked fellow rapper 21 Savage’s legal troubles and possible deportation.
Brown had posted a video in which 21 Savage’s 2016 XXL Freshman cypher was dubbed over with the vocals of U.K.-based rapper/comedian, Big Shaq. The clip was accompanied with the caption, “CMON FAM, STOP PLAYING WIT DA MANS DEM.”
Offset slipped into Brown’s comments section and posted, “Memes ain’t funny lame,” which started the feud.
The online conflict resulted in Brown revealing his address for all of his 50 million followers to see, tempting Offset to show up and perhaps duke out their differences. The post with his address has been deleted after he was advised to remove it out of safety concerns, according to the Daily Mail.
Los Angeles police said they received a call from someone who was “concerned” with Brown’s well-being and the individual said they were “scared” for him.
Police visited Brown’s San Fernando Valley home for a welfare check. His security team told authorities that Brown was fine.
Earlier, Brown launched a verbal attack against Offset as their beef seemed to intensify.
“Better worry about what u got going and focus on ‘you.’ All this cap on IG is what’s lame. Yo energy wont [sic] that when I came to Drake show in LA. If you don’t get yo a hip a hop a hibbet a hibbet to the hip hip hop and ya don’t stop the rockin faceass out of my comments. Sensitive as n***a. Call me personally. U want some clout when all u gotta do is pull up […] If you a real man fight me. Oh and another thing, suck my d**k!”
The two have been engaging in a war of words for at least a week on social media with veiled threats from Brown and with Offset bringing up Brown’s 2009 domestic violence episode involving singer Rihanna.
“Check my record and check yours only people you go toe to toe with is women,” said Offset in an Instagram post of his own. “Oh and btw Ima smack the s**t out you when I see you!”
Offset later responded to Brown’s verbal attack via Instagram Stories by posting: “Coke head don’t want [smoke emoji].”
Meanwhile, Jay-Z enlisted an attorney to help 21 Savage fight his immigration issues.
