Once again, Kanye West is stretching his hand (and pen) out for Drake to sign-off on that GOOD Music peace treaty, and he’s gone to a noble length for it: a public apology to the OVO Sound boss via Twitter.
But even we must say that the events leading up to this moment have been the messiest we’ve ever seen them. Initially, ‘Ye only specified that he never supported his GOOD Music President Pusha T’s on-wax war with Drizzy because he’s “about love” and believes “lines were crossed” amid their rap beef hostility. Thereafter, a few trusted sources revealed that he was Pusha’s smoking gun that helped fire off King Push’s “Story of Adidon” diss track, which exposed an internet-breaking secret from the OVO camp: Drake’s infant son.
Kanye shut that one down, but it didn't take long for speculation to surface that ‘Ye’s call for a truce had less to do with his advocating for peace and more to do with a secret involving Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, that the Scorpion rapper might be hanging over GOOD Music’s head. Kim K eventually laid the speculation to rest, and now, it’s her husband’s turn again to confront the tension with Drizzy, which he’s done with a heartfelt apology…one that the internet is not buying.
And as for tipping off King Push about Drake's son, Kanye cleared his name in that as well. He's already learned his lesson about involving children in adult conflict years ago when he shot shameful words about Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose's son, Bash, amid their hostility.
