Kanye West has took to Twitter to reach out to Drake in a series of tweets to apologize to Drake for the way things went down between the Toronto rapper and his G.O.O.D Music labelmate Pusha T.
The beef between Drake and Pusha T goes all the back to 2011, but things got real ugly earlier this year with diss tracks “The Story of Adonis” and “Duppy Freestyle” being released, with the beef eventually being deaded thanks to J Prince.
“Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew,” Kanye began his tweet storm. “I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online. I understand where the confusion started.”
Kanye then said that he’s sorry for stepping on Drake’s release date for Scorpion, hinting at fans that Drake had to move his release date so he wouldn’t drop on the same date as Kanye’s Ye and other albums he produced for G.O.O.D. Music artists. He continued: “When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after.”
Read Kanye’s complete explanation below.
“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. 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. 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. 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. I never listened to either diss track that followed but I did hear quotes from both songs after they were released. 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. 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.”
