As Drake sets streaming records with his new Certified Lover Boy album, he escalated his feud with Kanye West by leaking an unreleased Yeezy track dissing the Toronto rapper.
According to Billboard, over the weekend, Drizzy played on a radio program “Life of the Party,” featuring Andre 3000 from Outkast, that was previewed at a Donda event in Las Vegas on July 18, but didn’t appear on the final album.
“I put Virgil and Drake on the same text and it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress / Just told these grown men stop it with the funny s**t,” Kanye says on his verse, referencing when designer Virgil Abloh and Drake and Abloh posed wearing the same Arc’teryx jackets.
“Thought we was the new Abu Dhabi / Told Drake don’t play with me on GD and he sent that message to everybody / So if I hit you with a WYD, you better hit me with, ‘Yessir, I’m writing everything you need,"” the verse continues.
Andre 3000 says when he recorded his verse for the song, he didn’t know Kanye would later add a verse dissing Drake. “It’s unfortunate that it was released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth.” he tells Billboard.
Drake also appears to diss Kanye on the Certified Lover Boy track “7am on Bridle Path,” rapping, “Get that address to your driver, make it your destination / instead of just a post out of desperation,” seemingly referencing when West shared Drake’s home address on social media.
As the feud continues, Drake is celebrating CLB setting Apple Music’s all-time record for most streams in a single day. He also dropped his new hilarious video, “Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Future and Young Thug.
