Quavo boldly proclaimed he’s the “best Hip Hop basketball player in the world” following his recent All-Star Weekend victory against 2 Chainz and Lil Baby. But evidently, Chris Brown is even more confident he could’ve washed both the Migos rapper and his teammate Jack Harlow if given the chance.
On Saturday (March 6), the R&B hitmaker took to his Instagram Stories and gently taunted the winning duo.
“They knew who not to ask for on that 2 on 2 basketball,” he wrote. “I would’ve cooked Quavo and Jack! On my soul! Guess they wanted a smoke free zone.”
Brown’s post prompted a response from Quavo who replied, “Chris Brown ain’t cooking nan call next n-gga!!!” Undeterred, Breezy came back again with, “Aint no next… I’m on now. Set it up lil n-gga. U know dis work different.”

Brown has a long standing reputation for being a stellar basketball player. In August 2019, former NBA star Metta World Peace appeared on Van Lathan’s podcast The Red Pill and said he thought Brown was talented enough to make it to the National Basketball Association (NBA).
“I thought Chris Brown should have been in the league,” he said at the time. “Before, 10 years ago when I was playing with Chris? Yeah, definitely. He was better than a lot of people. He was still young — didn’t have a shot — but what young player has a shot? I like that he was very smooth … really good penetrator and really aggressive when attacking the basket. I thought he was one of the best ones I’ve seen.”
That’s not to say Quavo hasn’t proven himself on the court time and time again. In 2018, he took home the Most Valuable Player trophy for his performance at the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, finishing with 19 points and five rebounds for Team Clippers who defeated Team Lakers 75-66. This year, Quavo defeated Baby and Chainz 21 to 7 as part of Bleacher Report’s Open Run. Once again, Huncho was named the game’s MVP after he pulled down 14 rebounds and swat away four shots.
It appears Waka Flocka Flame is here for a Quavo versus Brown showdown. Shortly after their back-and-forth, Waka hopped in the comment section and wrote, “I got a quarter million in real life on that one.” But of course, nothing official has been announced — at least not yet.
