- Kayne West and Drake have stoked the fire of their long-enduring feud after Drake took a shot at Ye and Pusha T on Trippie Redd’s new song “Betrayal.”
- In response, Kanye group chatted Drake and others a photo of the Joker and publicly posted the address to Drake’s Toronto home, both have since been deleted.
- The reactions to the latest installment of their beef are amazing.
In the lead up to their impending album releases, I can’t imagine a beef between Kayne and Drake is bad for business. Contoversy sells and chalk up the timing of the latest installment of their long-enduring feud as coincidence is to undermine the marketing genius of two of the most influential artists of our generation.
Things between the two have soured immensely since May 2009 when Drake publicly idolized Kanye: “I’d even go as far as to say he’s the most influential person as far as a musician that I’d ever had in my life,” he said at the time.
Where did it go wrong? Was it Drake hanging out with Amber Rose two months after her and Kayne broke up? Was it Drizzy’s verse being cut from ‘All of the Lights‘? Was it Kanye pursuing a joint album with Jay-Z after Drake announced a joint album plan with Lil Wayne? Was it Drake trashing the Yeezy 350s in an unreleased collab with French Montana?
There would never be a drake without a Kanye west so never come out your mouth with a threat

Whatever it was, it still is.
Most recently, Drake is featured on Trippie Redd’s latest album Trip at Knight, with a verse on a song called “Betrayal” that takes shots at West and Pusha T.
“All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (burned out), let it go / Ye ain’t changin’ s*** for me, it’s set in stone.”
Kanye then posted a now-deleted Instagram screenshot from a group chat containing eight other people, including Pusha T and presumably Drake.

“I live for this
I’ve been fucked with by nerd ass jock n***** like you my whole life
You will never recover
I promise you”
Just to make sure everyone’s following along so far…

Kanye didn’t stop there.
In another since-deleted post, Ye shared the address to Drake’s Toronto mansion, which would be considered doxing if the address already wasn’t widely known.

Just letting yall know that Kanye didn't really leak Drake's address that's public knowledge, you can even google "Drake's House" it's basically a tourist attraction when you're driving by Toronto now.
