Kanye West Tweets Apology To Drake, Clears The Air For Pusha T Beef

When we last checked in on the lingering cold war between Kanye West and Drake, it was via a Chicago radio interview Kanye did last week. “It hits me in a really sensitive place,” he said about the perceived tension between the two, which had been agitated by Kanye’s close collaboration with Pusha T, with whom Drake engaged in a bitter feud earlier this year.

Ultimately, Kanye spoke of the pair’s relationship positively: “Look, it ain’t no beef. Ain’t nobody got beef.” This might be why the artist took it even further, hopping on Twitter early Wednesday morning (September 5) to formally apologize to Drake in a series of short messages.

Kanye produced six albums early this summer, including Pusha T’s Daytona and his own, Ye. Drake pushed his Scorpion album release date back from June 14 to June 29, after Kanye’s rollouts had wrapped. Here, Kanye also referenced his infamous and erratic TMZ incident from May where he called slavery “a choice,” a comment he apologized for in the same radio interview from last week.

Crucially, Kanye admitted that “there should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you,” referencing his work with Pusha T around the time Pusha’s Drake dis track, “The Story of Adidon.” That song revealed the bombshell that Drake has a son, which Drake later confirmed on Scorpion.

Kanye also said that despite his Pusha affiliation, he did not supply his G.O.O.D. Music collaborator with the information about Drake’s son. In 2016, Kanye briefly feuded with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose on Twitter, eventually bringing their son into the conversation. (“I own your child,” Kanye tweeted before deleting.)

Kanye then punctuated his tweet-storm with a message of hope, making plans to see Drake’s new live show, which kicked off with Migos last month. “I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created,” he said.

Does this mean we’ll finally get a Drake version of “Lift Yourself” sometime soon? That might be a little overambitious — but in the meantime, we’ll just have to wait and see if Drake accepts Kanye’s apology.

Kanye West’s Apology To Kim Kardashian On Ye ‘Meant A Lot’ To Her

One of the most vulnerable moments on Kanye West’s recently released album, ye, is “Wouldn’t Leave.” On the song, the father of three apologizes to his wife for making the controversial statement on TMZ that slavery was “a choice.” During the first verse, Kanye raps, “My wife callin’, screamin’, say we ’bout to lose it all / Had to calm her down ’cause she couldn’t breathe / Told her she could leave me now, but she wouldn’t leave.” Now, in a new interview with ET, Kim Kardashian has opened up about hearing the song for the very first time.

“Did I talk about it? Did I scream about it? Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah,” Kardashian admitted. “That’s not stuff we put on social media, but yeah, we have those moments. That was the one song that he didn’t really play for me until last minute, so I heard that last minute and it meant a lot to me. But yeah, we have different views sometimes, but that’s my husband, you know?”

In the same interview, Kardashian gave some insight into the creation of ye, revealing that her husband scrapped the project and started over just weeks before it was set to be released.

“I was in the room for making all of the songs and hearing things, and it’s a really fascinating process, especially since he scrapped his whole album and redid it in the last two weeks and just came up with all new songs,” she said. “I left to go home for, like, two days and then I come back and it was a whole new album. It’s fascinating to see the process.”

Ye is headed toward a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100. On Monday (June 4), the Chicago rapper took to Twitter to thank fans for supporting the project.

West’s next project is a collaborative album with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghosts, which drops this Friday (June 8). Hopefully he won’t scrap this one so close to the deadline as he did with ye.
