Kanye West has more words for Drake following recent niceties
Is the old, new Kanye back?
After re-exploring his relationship with social media and keeping it somewhat calm in recent months, Kanye West is back to his old party tricks, posting a multi-part series of selfie videos on Instagram.
At the beginning of the old-new Kanye-esque rant, the rapper states that he’s “up out the sunken place” and therefore free to talk as his true self, going on to first address Nick Cannon and later Tyson Beckford, asking that both keep his wife’s name out of their mouths.
Firstly, Ye offers a somewhat random but friendly suggestion, calling for the Wild ‘N Out host to consciously avoid commenting on his past relationship with Kim Kardashian during interviews out of respect for her marriage with West. Fair enough.
Secondly, the Chicago native brings up Drake, with the new commentary arriving after it appeared the two mutually made amends and offered niceties to one another in the wake of some tension and rumors. After previously apologizing to Drake for his role in the Pusha T beef, Ye now has decided to clear his chest when it comes to the fan theory that Drizzy and West’s wife had a romantic affair (stemming from the idea that the “Kiki” in Drake’s “In My Feelings” is referencing Kardashian).
“Now if I wasn’t in a medicated state, I might have thought, and had the wherewithal to say, ‘Hey Pusha, don’t diss Drake on my beat,’ and I spoke about that and took accountability for that,” West says in the clips. “Now what I’m looking for, for my spirit to take accountability, is the fact that it’s people making rumors or thinking that you fuck my wife, and you not saying nothing, and you carrying it like that. That don’t sit well with my spirit.”
That’s not it, though. West then dives into the speculation directly, trying to put things into perspective for the Toronto rapper.
“You know if I had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita, and then you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called ‘Riri’,” West continues. “So when you’re like, ‘Aw, I don’t know where it come from,’ you too smart for that bro. You know where that come from. Don’t make no record with nothing that could be confused. Now I told you, I didn’t tell Pusha no information about your baby, baby momma, nothing like that. That didn’t come from me.”
West then shifts gears, going on to defend Travis Scott and calling out Drake for rapping about having “20 damn Kylies” and “20 damn Kendalls” in a song snippet that was not formally released.
“I told you, Travis is your man, don’t make no record like that. That man just had a baby with her, that’s going to be offensive,” West adds.
Needless to say, it seems as though Kanye West is “in his feelings” about the whole thing, and has some expectations regarding Drake’s next moves. However, after posting these videos, Ye wasn’t necessarily done yet, going on to add a casual ode to how beautiful his love is with Kardashian and a random post of Beyoncé and JAY-Z captioned “famleeeeee.” All in a day’s work, right?
