Kanye West has a lot on his mind and cares little for Twitter’s character count.
West unleashed more than a dozen tweets (and counting) targeting Drake on Thursday afternoon. The “Jesus Walks” rapper had promised to smooth things over with Drake, but he cannot seem to get over his falling out with Canada’s powerhouse.
“Still need that apology for mentioning the 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths,” Yeezy tweeted Thursday afternoon. “Been trying to meet with you for six months, bro. You [are] sneak dissing on Travis [Scott’s] records and texting Kris [Jenner] talking ’bout ‘how’s the family.'”
The public feud between the two parties sparked after West’s label mate and GOOD Music president Pusha T kicked off an intense, if shortly lived, rap feud with Drake. Both artists released diss tracks. The beef peaked when Pusha revealed the existence of Drake’s son Adonis in the diss track “The Story of Adidon”.
West criticized Drake for his lack of sympathy towards ‘Ye’s battle with mental health. Drake was previously shunned for poking fun at Kid Cudi’s mental-well being too. “I need my apologies now,” West demanded on Thursday.
West said his issues with Drake have been “bothering me too long.” He expressed his frustrations with Drake for supposedly purchasing the first two rows to a Pusha T concert. The tactic is used to reserve empty seats at a rival’s show to reduce the expected attendance. See 50 Cent vs. Ja Rule.
West 41, even shared a passage from the bible: “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.”
He tweeted the same screenshot of a text on three separate occasions. “Drake sent in a clearance request for ‘Say What’s Real’. Do you want to clear?” the text read. “Say What’s Real” is a 2009 track from Drake’s breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone. The track was produced by West.
West updated fans shortly after. Two of his final three tweets revealed how Drake had just called West in response to the barrage of tweets. “Drake finally called,” he tweeted. “Mission accomplished.” Ye followed it up tweeting, “By the way… not cleared.”
The only thing West delivers more than musical content is headline-worthy tweets.
Speaking of which, West picked up right where he left off later Thursday night. He tweeted more than 60 — six-zero — times in a span of roughly 30 minutes. He dished on his alleged phone call with Drake, brushed off Drake’s alleged threats, and more.
