Rapper Drake was turned away by security at the Playhouse in Hollywood Wednesday night, apparently to avoid any possible incidents between the rapper and Chris Brown, who was already inside the club.TMZ reports that Brown was in the nightclub celebrating the launch of the Popular Demand clothing line. Drake showed up at around midnight, and club security knew that Rihanna would be joining him later, so they told him he might want to take the party somewhere else.

You may remember that Drake's and Brown's entourages got into a brawl last summer at the nightclub W.i. P. that nearly wrecked the place.

Drake left the club without incident.
