Kanye West has reached out to Drake on Twitter to apologise for their ongoing feud.
The dispute between the two rappers reached fever pitch earlier this year (18) when Pusha T dissed Drake on the track Infrared, which was produced and co-written by Kanye. Drake responded by taking shots at them both on Duppy Freestyle, and Pusha hit back with The Story of Adidon, in which he claimed Drake had a secret lovechild, something he later confirmed was true.
The Stronger rapper has now extended an olive branch to the Hotline Bling star, and in a series of tweets posted on Wednesday (05Sep18), he apologized for releasing his album Ye the same month as Drake’s Scorpion and for dropping a proposed Drake feature from his song Lift Yourself.
“Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew,” he wrote besides purple heart emojis. “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 (Kid) Cudi at our office.
“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 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.”
In Infrared, Pusha namedrops Quentin Miller, suggesting that he’s Drake’s ghostwriter, something which Miller has denied.
Kanye continued by insisting once again that he never told Pusha about Drake’s son, adding “I don’t play with the idea of people’s children.”
He concluded by declaring his love for both rappers and that he would be checking out the Canadian star’s live show at his Aubrey and The Three Migos tour.
“I love you and I love Pusha and we all have an admiration for each other’s craft,” the father of two tweeted. “This is all Jedi level. I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created.”
