Kanye West goes on a Twitter tirade after Drake "threatened" him
West is telling Drake to "cut the tough talk”
Kanye West has reignited his feud with former friend and collaborator, Drake (this year's most streamed artist), after he supposedly called West and threatened him and his family.
The specifics of the threat are currently unclear, but it prompted West to go on an explosive Twitter rant that contained more than 125 tweets.
West and Drake have been at odds ever since West produced the track 'Infrared' for Drake's rival, Pusha T, back in May. In the song, Pusha T calls out Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter. This was the first big blow in a long war of words that continues to ensue between the two rappers.
The most recent dispute started up on Thursday after Drake sent West a clearance request for 'Say What’s Real', a song from his 2009 mixtape 'So Far Gone' that samples West’s 'Say You Will'. Following the request, West called out Drake for insulting his Adidas sneaker line in his verse for French Montana's 'No Stylist' and for buying out the front rows of Pusha T's Toronto concert which was canceled after a fight broke out on stage. The incident landed to one person in the hospital after they were stabbed multiple times.
A brief moment of reconciliation occurred before West launched into another diatribe, tweeting: "Drake called trying to threaten me."
“I’m the guy with the pink polo that made a way for him,” West wrote. “There would never be a Drake without a Kanye West so never come out your mouth with a threat.”
“I’m your oxygen,” West continued.
“So Drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect. So cut the tough talk.”
West ended his rant with the words "All positive vibes … all love." Drake's only response has been a string of laughing emojis.
