Drake "Tips His Hat" To Pusha T For Exposing His Son; Ends Friendship With Kanye West
(AllHipHop News) Drake made it clear he and Kanye West are no longer friends in a candid Christmas Day interview.
The two former pals once discussed releasing a joint album, and Kanye appeared at Drake’s OVO music festival several times, despite the rappers’ subtle digs at each other on record.
Then Kanye’s collaborator, Malik Yusef, implied in an interview that the rap superstar had heard that Drake had a secret son just before Pusha T released "The Story Of Adidon," in which he revealed Drake was a dad.
Reports suggested Kanye had given Pusha T the inspiration. West denied the claims.
But that’s when the feud began, and the two superstars continued to attack each other on record and in the media.
“Me and Drake had this disagreement and he refused to speak to me for six months. That was so painful… You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother next door… I go to Drake’s house with no security and just leave my number… Drake lives four blocks down the street from me.”
But in his Christmas Day address with Rap Radar, Drake made it clear he has no wish to be friends with Kanye, insisting he cannot “fix” his old pal.
“I think he kind of recruited a guy with a similar dislike for me, no matter what he says (in) interviews,” Drake said. “He can tell whoever, ‘I got love for him’ or whatever, but it’s not love… There’s something there that bothers him deeply. Yeah, I can’t fix it for him, so, it just is what it is.
“I’m not just some kid that’s not a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”
He also attacked Pusha T, insisting he’ll always bear a grudge for the way the rapper exposed the fact he was a dad on record.
“I have no desire to ever mend anything with that person. I’ll say this, I tip my hat to the chess move. I mean, it was a genius play in the game of chess. And definitely warranted my first quote-unquote ‘loss’ in the competitive sport of rapping. Some people like his music. I personally don’t ’cause I don‘t believe any of it.”
