Drake and Chris Brown are being monitored by police

The rappers' club appearances and performances are said to be under observation by a group of officers from the NYPD - known as the 'Hip-Hop' Squad - in the wake of the Suge Knight shooting at Chris' party at the 1Oak Nightclub in Los Angeles last week.

According to the New York Post's Page Six gossip column, the feuding duo are at the top of the list of artistes on special watch, with the actions of French Montana, Wiz Khalifa,Young Jeezy, Fat Joe, Jim Jones, Lil Wayne and Fabolous also being monitored by the group.

A source said: "All New York club owners are required to inform the Hip-Hop Police in advance if anyone on the watch list is coming in. They want to be there to monitor the crowd and in case any trouble starts. They don't want any situations like the Suge Knight shooting. If something does go down, they want to already be on the scene."

Another insider explained: "Their job is to investigate crimes and curtail violence in the hip-hop industry. So when they find out there is a beef between rappers, they monitor it. They are plainclothes cops, they go to clubs and shows."
