Kanye tops Drake as 13-year drama continues

Abby Timm, Staff Writer

Though these past two years have been nothing but surprise after surprise, some things simply never change, such as the Drake and Kanye dispute for nearly thirteen years to bring things back to the present, in Drake’s recent feature on Trippie Redd’s “Betrayal,” he brings up his, at the time buried, dispute with Kanye in the most implicit way possible. While he doesn’t mention Kanye by name, he does say “Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go/Ye ain’t changing…for me, it’s set in stone.” It can be argued that “Ye” could be “they”, but it’s a little hard to argue that when Kanye is 44 and has a past with Drake.
In response to those lyrics, Kanye created an iMessage group chat with 8 people, including both Drake and Pusha T, the man who revealed to the world Drake’s secret child, and sent a picture of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. Along with the picture, Kanye said, “I live for this…You will never recover. I promise you.” He posted this on Instagram before quickly deleting it.
Of course, Kanye didn’t stop there. Following the deletion of that post, he also posted a screenshot of Drake’s address on Kanye’s iPhone maps, which was deleted later on as well. This didn’t seem to bother Drake too much, though, as he posted a video of himself on his Instagram story laughing while on a drive, seemingly unbothered.
Drake fans did not like Kanye revealing Drake’s address, as if you couldn’t look up “Drake’s house” and find his address, and retaliated by… “vandalizing” Kanye’s childhood home. Putting signs with the lyrics “Forty-five, forty-four (burnt out),” which helped reignite the flames of Drake’s and Kanye’s feud, along with promotion for Drake’s new album.
It’s nothing too exciting, and it makes sense as to why Drake’s new album is titled “Certified Lover Boy.”
At the end of the day, Kanye West will always come up on top. In the words of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, following the “sneak diss” Drake did on his feature in “Sicko Mode”, “He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world.”
