Killing time backstage at his Cleveland gig on Tuesday, rapper Chris Brown donned a wig and sunglasses reminiscent of Detroit's rising rap star, DeJ Loaf, and rapped a few lines from her hit, "Try Me."

The Instagram video (which Brown was careful to caption with "No shade! Just fucking around...") has already racked up nearly 250,000 likes so far (via Vibe).
