Kanye West Claims Drake Threatened Him In Tweets

“No more fake playing with peoples lives kids and mental health, you threatened the safety of me and my family.”

Kanye West is back at it again with his Twitter rants. But this time Ye focused his social media sermon on his long-time beef with Drake.

West tweeted a text message screenshot Thursday alleging that Drake requested to clear a “Say What’s Real” sample. This is a Ye-sampling from Drake’s 2009 So Far Gone mixtape.

Kanye did not provide additional context on why Drake needed the clearance but, shortly after Drizzy apparently called him. Ye said this was a “mission accomplished” and also he did not approve the sample clearance.


But things took a turn once Kanye hopped back on Twitter hours later. He claimed the Toronto artist “threatened” him and said if anything happened to his family Drake would be the first “suspect.”

Yeezy went on to rehash Drizzy’s previous beef with Pusha T, mentioning Mr. OVO’s supposed role in the Pusha-T Toronto show incident.

He continued the rant saying Drake is a “bully” who “(picks) on people with mental health issues,” and claimed the OVO artist sneak dissed him on Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode.”

“There would never be a Drake without a Kanye West so never come out your mouth with a threat,” West said.

Thursday’s rants are simply just the latest development in Drake and Kanye’s unusual relationship history. Earlier in September, Kanye publicly apologized to Drizzy on Twitter for their collaborative version of “Lift Yourself” and G.O.O.D. Music’s close album rollout to Drake’ Scorpion release.

In the same month, however, Kanye posted several Instagram videos criticizing Drake for possibly alluding to Kim Kardashian West on “In My Feelings.”
