Chris Brown and Kevin McCall may have exchanged heated words on social media earlier this year, but have the duo finally called an end to their ongoing feud? Just months after publicly accusing Brown of “duping” him into signing with his record label, Chris Brown Entertainment (CBE), Kevin McCall took to Instagram on Sunday to praise the “Grass Ain’t Greener” singer before reflecting on the success of their chart-topping “Deuces” collaboration from 2010.
While McCall and Brown are no strangers to trading insults on Instagram and Twitter, the duo’s longstanding feud appeared to reach a tipping point in June after McCall took to social media to blast Brown for reportedly making comments about his “baby mama,” Eva Marcille, and their 2-year-old daughter, Marley. In response to McCall’s comments, Chris later took to Instagram to publicly slam the producer in a series of heated videos in which he claims that he’ll make Kevin “sing backup” for his daughter, Royalty, if he continued to address their feud over social media, The Shade Room reports.

Just one month later, McCall sat down for an in-depth interview with Hollywood Unlocked in order to set the record straight about his falling out with Chris Brown, telling the site that Brown had “duped” him into signing a contract with his CBE record label prior to the release of their hit track, “Deuces.”
“[‘Deuces’] was a song I wrote about my first baby mama and my first love who broke up with me, and I felt like, you know, they missed out on a good deal,” Kevin McCall explained of his “Deuces” track. “So I wrote the song, I was feeling myself…played it for Chris and he wanted it. I signed some paperwork, f***** my life over, and there you have the song.” In addition, McCall further noted that his CBE contract paperwork with Brown’s record label “wasn’t legit” and that Brown often discouraged him from pursuing collaborations with other artists while signed to his label, although Brown has denied Kevin’s claims.

Despite the duo’s tumultuous business relationship, it appears that Kevin McCall and Chris Brown may have finally called an end to their lengthy feud after McCall took to Instagram on October 15 to reflect on his “Deuces” collaboration with Brown in addition to calling the “Back To Sleep” singer a “dope a** all around artist.”

“Best song I ever freestyled and had the privilege of collaborating with a dope a** Artist,” McCall began in the caption of his Instagram post. “@chrisbrownofficial he wrote half this s*** with me by the way….he is beast in his own right. This song hard tho cuhz I ain’t gone even lie right now….#nostalgia.”
Similarly, after one fan took to the comment section of McCall’s post to inquire about his past statements in which he claimed to have written “Deuces” in its entirety before giving it to Brown, Kevin explains, “@najbreezyx you would have to be able to ‘freestyle music’ off the top of your head to get what I meant….I laid the foundation freestyle he added to it. Simple.”
Currently, Chris Brown has yet to respond to Kevin McCall’s post or rumors of a conclusion to their ongoing feud.
