Kanye West and Drake have had a pretty rocky friendship over the past few years, but this morning Yeezus tried to patch things up with a series of tweets apologizing for infringing on Drizzy’s Scorpion release date, collaborating on music with a negative energy toward him, not listening to any of the circulating diss tracks, wanting to attend an upcoming concert, and more.
“Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew 💜💜💜 I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online I understand where the confusion started,” he began while posting a picture from Drake’s ongoing tour with Migos.
“Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place … We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office,” Ye continued.
“When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after … I have to hop on the plane now… will type more when I land,” he explained before taking a temporary break.
“Plane taxiing for take off… because we spoke about doing Lift Yourself together I should have given you the opportunity for us to do this together before I released it,” Kanye added upon his return. “Since we were building as friends and brothers I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar. There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you.”
He then addressed rumors he was feeding intel to Pusha T for “The Story Of Adidon” with a pair of tweets:
“I did not have any conversations about your child with Pusha. I don’t play with the idea of people’s children after I spoke to Wiz a few years earlier. I understand Pusha’s issues as a man if someone mentions your fiancé men go mask off. I’ve done the same myself at times. I love you and I love Pusha and we all have an admiration for each other’s craft.”
Kanye’s apology appears as though it could be self-serving, as Drake was recently spotted previewing a new song with French Montana dissing Yeezy Boost sneakers with the lyrics “I told her don’t wear no 350s around me,” which would no doubt impact the sales of the popular shoe upon its release.
