Get your popcorn ready because Kanye West is not playing out here. The “Faded” rapper just slammed former friend Drake in a series of tweets and included receipts as proof that the “In My Feelings” rapper was being shady.
The two ended their longterm friendship and work relationship a few months ago after Pusha T dropped the diss track, “The Story Of Adidon,” which let the world know Drake has a son he’s been very private about. Since then, Drake has believed Kanye betrayed him by telling Pusha about his child. Now, Kanye is setting the record straight with a rant.
He first took to Twitter on Thursday, Dec. 13. and posted a screenshot of a text message that read, “Drake sent in a clearance request for ‘Say What’s Real.’ Do you wanna clear?” to which Kanye tweeted, “This proves s–ts faker than wrestling.” Let’s keep in mind, throughout his rant, he tweeted the same photo of the text message two other times for emphasis, we imagine.
From there, his tweets got more straightforward, as if he was directly talking to Drake and demanding an apology. “Still need that apology for mentioning the [Yeezy Boost] 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths,” referencing Drake’s verse on “No Stylist”— his collab with French Montana. The line in question says, “Yeah, keepin’ it G, I told her ‘don’t wear no 350s ’round me'”, which means he doesn’t want girls wearing Kanye’s sneaker line in his presence.
Then he got the family involved, mainly Travis Scott and Kris Jenner, “Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro. You sneak dissing on Trav’s records and texting Kris talking bout how’s the family.” And finally, Kanye reiterated he’s not the one who outed Drake’s son. “I told you I ain’t tell Pusha about your son,” he continued. “It’s all love bro bro but don’t play with me. You stay too close to be playing all these industry games bro.”
Many tweets later, Kanye posted a photo of a verse from the bible. It looks like Drake got the message because then Kanye said, “Drake finally called.” While there’s no indication of how that convo went, it doesn’t seem like it went too well because to end his twitter rant, the 41-year-old tweeted, “By the way… not cleared,” referring to the first tweet. Drake himself posted a bunch of laughing emojis on his Insta Story, so it seems like he still thinks this is all a joke. If they decide to continue the feud, hopefully they can unleash that energy in the music studio, instead!
