What about the beef? Kanye West has consistently expressed his ideas directly and forthrightly and is not hesitant to confront his detractors.
When Pusha-T dissed Drake on his “Infrared” song in 2018, which West produced, the relationship between the Yeezy designer and Drake, who were formerly close friends and coworkers, swiftly deteriorated.
In an interview with HBO’s The Shop in October 2018, Drake said, “Then, the first album drops.” “And, of course, there is a song that you wrote that makes fun of me and talks about writing? I was there to support you as friends just moments ago, and now you are criticizing me. Woah, this is gloomy, I think.
The two have engaged in verbal combat, whether on social media or in a stanza of one of their songs.
Drake even claimed that the native of Illinois leaked information about the birth of his kid Adonis before making an official announcement.
“I confess to him that I am experiencing issues with my son’s mother. In reference to his former girlfriend Sophie Brussaux, the Degrassi alum told The Shop that they talked. “When I wake up, all these dates have passed,” Then, for whatever reason, the next two days, I wake up to this passive text message from him saying, “Hey, I adore you, brother.”
After being silent for years, the “Gold Digger” artist allegedly rekindled their feud in August 2021 when his 10th album, DONDA, with a dark reference to the “One Dance” performance, was published.
Eagle-eyed fans believed that the line from Kanye West’s song “Pure Souls” “It must be God’s plan / Man, I swear these fellas keep playing / We gonna have to square up then,” alluded to the tension between the musicians.
Drake’s Certified Lover Boy LP, released a few weeks later, seemed to return the favor. Despite not mentioning West in his song “Hotline Bling,” the singer referenced a rapper who is also a fashion designer.
Drake rapped on the song, “Told you I am aimin’ right for the head / Not looking to satisfy.” Have someone put you on a Gildan, and you play with my seed. I could not care less who designed your sneakers and t-shirts.
Drake is hardly the only celebrity criticizing West. In a since-deleted tweet, Peppa Pig’s official Twitter account appeared to have sent a questionable message to the father of four, who shares the children North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm with Kim Kardashian, shortly after the publication of DONDA.
In addition to side-by-side screenshots of evaluations of DONDA and Peppa’s Adventures: The Album, the children’s TV show’s account at the time stated, “Peppa did not require Mercedes-Benz Stadium listening events to obtain that .5.”
West has remarked on several of his well-known disputes with other prominent figures in the entertainment world, although he never publicly addressed his alleged quarrel with the animated series.
