As was the case for the rest of his Hollywood war flare-ups, Soulja’s tension began on his off-the-rails Breakfast Club interview. According to his sentiments on the world’s most dangerous morning show, Drizzy was simply a byproduct Soulja lent to Young Money. After taking shots at his Pusha T strife and private fatherhood woes, Soulja (along with his threadbare Gucci headband) had a rather neurotic reaction to The Breakfast Club’s mention of the OVO Sound rap star and even sparked a viral “DRAAAKKKEEE?!” meme sensation. A month later and the SOGMG entrepreneur is making nice with the Scorpion artist as evidenced by a screenshot of their private DM conversation. There’s a slim to none chance that Drake would so willingly accept an olive branch from an industry name of Soulja’s caliber in what appeared to be a foundationless rap war declared on his Toronto-bred name. But judging by the now-publicized Instagram conversation, all is forgiven.
Soulja appears to have initiated the exchange when he tagged Drake in a video that shows him pulling up at his new OVO store. He told Drizzy that he’d wear one of the pieces from his $3,000 OVO store purchase on stage for [DaniLeigh’s] show that evening. Drake sent his blessing to Soulja’s OVO thread picks complete with a message about the former tension. “I dunno if you was serious about the video thing but I never knew you wanted to do a video for we made it you know I would have done that sh**,” Drizzy added, referring to the 2013 “We Made It” collaboration, which grounded the basis of Soulja’s years-long hostility with the Young Money rapper.
And just like that, the Drake versus Big Draco armistice went into effect, and fans have just one question: it’s not too late for the video now, is it?
