Kanye West has pretty spectacularly reignited his public feud with Drake, claiming the Scorpion rapper has been playing nice personally while disrespecting him with his music.
Taking to Twitter, Kanye shared a screenshot of a message which suggests Drake is seeking a sample clearance for his 2009 track Say What’s Real, which utilises elements of Kanye’s 808s & Heartbreaks tune Say You Will.
“This proves shit faker than wrestling,” Kanye tweeted.
Kanye implied the clearance request was hypocritical, considering the shade Drake has recently thrown Yeezy’s way.
“Still need that apology for mentioning the 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths,” Kanye wrote, referencing Drake’s recent diss of Kanye’s Yeezy 350 sneaker on the French Montana track No Stylist.
He went on to say he’s been attempting to meet with Drake for six months to sort out the pair’s issues, and there are some significant issues: earlier this year, Kanye associate Pusha T made the revelation that Drake had been hiding the fact he is a father.
Speculation mounted that it was Kanye himself who informed King Push of the matter, leading to incredible tension between the two camps. Then there was the whole Kiki thing. It’s a tension which has now come back to the fore.
Kanye appeared to end his public missive by saying that Drake called to discuss the matter at hand, but added this lil’ message:
Stay tuned for more developments on what appears to be some genuine beef between two of music’s most influential figures.
