Billionaire rapper, and fashion designer, Kanye West has opened up on his rivalry with his colleague, Drake, accusing the Canadian born rapper of alluding to ‘fu**ing’ his wife and then lying to him about it.
On Thursday night, November 4, Kanye West was a guest on the Revolt TV podcast Drink Champs.
In a two-hour conversation the 44-year-old covered a lot of ground, saying he didn’t want to divorce Kim Kardashian as she was still his ‘wife’.
He praised Drake, calling him
‘a very important artist who added something to the algorithm.”The style of rap that he was doing was more sophisticated than the style of rap that I grew up on,’ Kanye said approvingly, adding that Drake’s song had ‘good melodies’ and ‘good music.’
He claimed that Drake said to him,
‘I never f***ed Kim.”
But you acted like you did,’ Kanye continued. ‘You’ve got bars, it’s like, “Hidden Hills, give your wife the chills.”‘
Hidden Hills is the highbrow area in Los Angeles where Kanye and Kim both lived with their kids before she bought the house from him last month amid their ongoing divorce proceedings.
He said it was disrespectful that Drake rapped that line and said he asked Drake if he ever ‘DMed’ Kim. To which the rapper denied.
But after he was asked if he could ‘smoke’ Drake in a Verzuz battle, Kanye replied, ‘Yeah, absolutely.’
‘But it already happened,’ he added. ‘He played one of my leaked songs and it was better than every other song this year,’ he said of a track that featured Outkast’s Andre 3000.
Kanye also denied leaking Drake’s address, after he posted a map image with an address on social media that is believed to be the location of Drake’s Toronto mansion.
‘No, he advertised it when he was building the house,’ he claimed. ‘Everyone knows it. It’s like a place in Canada you go by. It’s like a monument.”You can find it. That’s how I was able to find it,’ he added. ‘It’s Googleable. It’s on Google Maps.’
He also complained that those close to him worried he was having an ‘episode’ whenever he referenced his feuds in his music.
He defended his reactions after believing that Drake threatened him on a track.
‘A man threatening my life on a song and they wonder why you end up in the hospital,’ he said, adding that Drake was ‘driving me crazy’ with his jabs in songs.
