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.
So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect So cut the tough talk
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.
I’m up for talking. We need to show all of these fans that black men can@talk without someone ending up dead or in jail
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.”
