Kanye West publicly apologizes to Drake after months of beef & constant dissing
Kanye West shocked fans when he apologized to Drake after months of beefing and constant dissing between the two of them.
After Drake posted a photo of him on stage with a large scorpion on the set of his tour with Migos, Kanye West took a screenshot of it and posted it on his own Twitter account. Hoping to end the months-long feud between the rappers, he said:
Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew. I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online. I understand where the confusion started"

Drake vs. Pusha T and Kanye
Drake and Kanye have been in a bitter rap feud since last Spring, and Good Music President Pusha T was involved in it. Everything went downhill after Drake mentioned the name of Pusha's then-fiance, Virginia Williams, in one of his lyrics. The rapper then decided that all bets were off, and revealed that Drake was making music off the back of his ghostwriter, Quentin Miller. He got so angry, that he even revealed in his latest album that Drake was the father of a baby boy named Adonis in "The Story of Adidon".
Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place … We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office.— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after … I have to hop on the plane now… will type more when I land— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
Drake ended up confirming that he indeed fathered a son, and he says this in his latest album.
Insiders have been saying that Kanye might have been the source of spilling the beans about Drake's baby to Pusha, who then used it as the ultimate revenge track.
Things got even crazier when Drake released his "Scorpion" album, which took direct blows at Kanye and Pusha T in several songs, including "8 out of 10", "I'm Upset", and "Mob Ties".
plane taxiing for take off... because we spoke about doing Lift Yourself together I should have given you the opportunity for us to do this together before I released it— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
However, things started to fuel up again after Kim Kardashian quashed rumors that she and Drake were having an extra-marital affair as fans suspected. Now, this brings us back to Kanye's Twitter apology.
since we were building as friends and brothers I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar. There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
Kanye Makes Amends
After Kanye said that he understands where the confusion is coming from, he made a long Twitter thread about his thoughts. He said that the beef might have started from when he announced that most of his G.O.O.D. Music artists were dropping albums every Friday during the month of June, which impacted Drake's June 29 release date.
I never listened to either diss track that followed but I did hear quotes from both songs after they were released— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
Although he claims he did not listen to the diss tracks, he heard quotes from both singles and after his comments on Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose's son Sebastian a few years ago, he said he was done being in the baby dropping business.
I did not have any conversations about your child with Pusha. I don’t play with the idea of people’s children after I spoke to Wiz a few years earlier.— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
I understand Pusha’s issues as a man if someone mentions your fiancé men go mask off. I’ve done the same myself at times. I love you and I love Pusha and we all have an admiration for each other’s craft.— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
He assured Drake that his apology was not half meant, even going so far as to attend one of his next few shows in order to show his sincerity.
This is all Jedi level. I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created.— ye (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
While this could have been said in private, Kanye felt the need to let the public know of this rekindling so that no one ever thinks they are beefing again.
