Kanye West and Drake have been having what could arguably be considered as one of the more underwhelming beefs of the summer.
Last week (Aug. 29), West appeared on Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI’s morning show, going on to spend some of the allotted airtime addressing ongoing rumors of turbulence between himself and the 6 God. During the sit-down, ‘Ye vaguely touches on a situation that went down between the pair during which Drake got “mad about a beat” and sent him “purple demon emojis.” In true Drizzy form, the Toronto rapper soon took to Instagram to throw up-for-interpretation shade West’s way, because, of course he did.
Now that some of the dust has settled (following the surfacing of a now-viral Twitter conspiracy thread claiming that Drake slept with Kim Kardashian), West has decided to come forward and apologize for all the confusion and for his involvement with the diss track Pusha T dropped earlier this summer against Drake (“The Story of Adidon”).
“Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew,” Yeezy said early Wednesday morning (Sept. 5), beginning a series of tweets. “I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online. I understand where the confusion started.”
“Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place…” he continues. “We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office.”
West then explains he has to “hop on the plane now” but that his commentary would be continued shortly. About a half-hour later, more tweets pile in, addressing the ill feelings surrounding the “Lift Yourself” beat, as well as apologizes for his involvement in Pusha T’s record.
“Since we were building as friends and brothers I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar,” West carried on, commenting on the situation directly. “There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you.”
In conclusion, West explains how he, Drake and Pusha all have “an admiration for each other’s craft,” adding that he will be attending an installment of Drake’s current tour to “give love and be inspired by the art you have created.”
At the time of this report, Drizzy has yet to respond, but considering West has consistently been vocal about working on himself and working on lifting up others, perhaps this is the end of what has been a somewhat tense chapter for the two.
