Ye And Drake Reconcile Ending Long-Standing Feud



It seems Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, has squashed yet another beef. The conflict between him and Drake has been long-standing. Now, the two are turning over a new leaf as they have taken their reconciliation public. In a recent Instagram Live, Ye expressed, “it’s time to put it to rest.”

“I’m making this video to address the ongoing back-and-forth with myself and Drake. Both me and Drake have taken shots at each other, and it’s time to put it to rest,” Kanye says. “I’m asking Drake on December 7th to join me on stage as a special guest to share the two biggest albums of the year. Live in Los Angeles with the ultimate purpose being to free Larry Hoover.”

Drake shared footage from a get-together happening in Toronto, Ontario. The footage shows both Ye and Drake all smiles as they pose for pics. With Dave Chapelle as an attendee, we are sure they are all smiles and laughs.

The long-standing beef

The Ye and Drake beef has been hovering for over 12 years. Fans feel robbed of some of the best music due to the feud the two had since 2009. The then friends were at one point giving each other props and honor. In Drakes, Every Girl, he rapped, “Do you like girls like I do, Les-bi honest,” Ye commended him for this line calling it the best line of that year. Drake even considered Ye to be one of the most influential people as far as music goes. In 2010, Mr. West produced Find Your Love on Drake’s Thank Me Later album.

Mr. West is notorious for cutting verses from tracks. In 2010, his hit single, All Of The Lights, which featured Barbados singer Rihanna, hit the musical airways. Unfortunately for Drake, his verse was cut from the banger before its release. In 2011, an annoyed Drake speculated in an interview that Mr. West and Jay-Z’s collaborative album was just an imitation of his and Lil Wayne’s efforts.

After these small stints of not being on the same page, the two mentioned each other several times in interviews and music, seemingly on better terms. Kanye even made several surprise appearances at Drake’s OVO fest. In 2017, Drake told DJ Semtex, “Because, in the same breath, I went from being, like working on a project with him, to him sorta publicly shitting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much.”

Things came to a head for the two when it was revealed that Mr. West had shared Drake’s skeleton in the closet; his son Adonis. This is what Pusha-T used to diss Drake and left his fans speechless. Maintaining his stance, Mr. West shared that he would never stoop that low in any disagreement.

Drake & Ye Feature?

Ye seems to be in a great place as he lays to rest his rap beefs. Uniquely with Ye’s Donda Deluxe album release and Drake’s Certified Lover Boy making its rounds, the two are rap legends. Regardless of the back and forth between them, this reconciliation has us wondering, when can we expect a Drake and Ye collab? Let’s hope soon!
