Is there anything more charming than watching two millionaires duke it out over their riches on social media? Well, besides watching corgis running on a treadmill. But no, there is not. Hallelujah! Here come Nick Cannon and Chris Brown to the rescue.
The whole thing started when Cannon shared a photo of his sneaker closet in New York on Instagram. “Yeah, I need rehab bad! I have a problem,” he wrote. “This just the Mikes!” And indeed, it is a lot of Air Jordans.

Shortly after that, Chris Brown, apparently bored while he waited for his brand new head tattoo to heal, one upped the former Mr. Mariah Carey, showing up his shoe… room? empire? landfill? It sort of defies explanation.

“I shall lead you to the proimse land [sic],” Brown wrote to Cannon.

Cannon couldn’t help but fire back. This time it was with a picture of the shoes he keeps in Los Angeles.

“I got stairs and ladders too! LOL! #LACloset,” Cannon wrote to Brown. Does anyone else find it odd to just keep photos of shoes in different cities stored on your phone?
He continued, “BTW my people I’m NOT showing off or bragging by any means, but I have to show young @chrisbrownofficial a lil Sumpn’ real quick. LOL #ShoeFetish #Forreal Sorry about throwing the church shoes in there but it’s the only pick of my LA Closet I could find since I’m in NY. #ForgiveMe #Sneakerheads But please don’t even get me started on them hard bottoms…”
Now you didn’t honestly think we were done here, did you? Of course not. Chris Brown shot back with two more photos of his shoe collections across the country.

For whatever reason, Brown has since deleted all the photos from Instagram. Instead, he shared a photo of his Yeezys, which he dyed red.
