TMZ reports, Drake flashed his middle finger, engaged in serious trash talk, and drafted several other rappers to join his posse … minutes before the all out brawl with Chris Brown, according to multiple witnesses in the club.
TMZ was told the tension started building when Drake gave the middle finger to one of Chris’ bodyguards and shouted:
“I’m about to go whoop that ass!”
Chris’ entourage then returned fire with a few hand gestures of their own.
Witnesses who were very close to the action told TMZ that Drake felt disrespected, even though he started the exchange … and went to get backup from his boys Meek Mills, Juelz Santana, and Trav B.
At this point, TMZ was told told Drake got loud and shouted at Chris Brown:
“You be on that ho s**t on Twitter n***a”
A clear reference to a recent Twitter war between Chris Brown, Drake, and Meek Mill, all over who’s banging Rihanna.
Moments later TMZ was told Chris Brown’s security guards got irate, pushing and shoving began between Meek, Juelz and Chris’ posse — and you know the rest.
Interestingly, everyone agrees Drake never got physically involved in the brawl, even though his mouth and hand sparked it all.

After the fight, Meek Mill found it funny uploading a tweetgram referring to Rihanna’s goodies and even throwing a Shaggy quote.

“Really??? FU Meek Mills – u know how many fucking years we worked to have fly hip hop shit in downtown NYC? GTFO if u don’t know how 2 hang”
