Drake wishes his crew love could extend to Chris Brown. In the cover story for GQ's July issue, the Toronto rapper admitted he would like to put his well-worn feud with Rihanna's ex behind them, but he doesn't think it's possible.

"I don't want my name to be synonymous with that guy's name. I really don't. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man," Drizzy told the magazine. "But that's not going to happen. I'm not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I'm not going to back down."

The 26-year-old "Crew Love" rapper admitted he found the media coverage around their feud "embarrassing" and disconcerting. "Two rappers fighting over the woman. He's not even a rapper, but still, it's the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music," Drake said. "But he's made me the enemy, and that's the way it's gonna stay, I guess."

Not that he has the time to forge a friendship anyway. On Monday, Drake announced his North American tour, which kicks off Sept. 25 in Portland. The tour will take him across the U.S. and Canada through the end of November. Tickets go on sale Friday.

But it seems the initial announcement failed to mention the "Degrassi" alum's hometown tour stop.

He will be performing with singer Miguel and rapper Future and is slated to announce some European tour dates soon.
