On Thursday, just hours after West, 41, appeared to settle their beef, the Chicago rapper hopped back on Twitter with over 125 tweets, claiming Drake, 32, “called trying to [threaten] me.”
“So Drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect — so cut the tough talk,” West continued.
West tried to back up his claims of Drake being a threat by bringing up a violent incident involving fans and fellow rapper, Pusha T.
“The kid he had run on stage at Pusha’s concert is in critical condition,” West said alleging that Drake is behind the disturbance and Push’s Toronto concert in November. During Pusha’s performance, some irate audience members rushed the stage and splashed him with liquid.
The concertgoers were immediately and violently pushed back, ending with a victim in critical condition after being stabbed multiple times.
Drake and West have been feuding ever since Drake’s longtime rival Pusha, 41, released the song “Infrared” in May off of his album Daytona, which West produced. In the song, Pusha calls out Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter.
A war of words ensued after the song’s release, with Drake and Pusha exchanging social media insults and diss tracks — the most scathing of which was Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon.” Among his attacks were rhymes mocking Drake’s newfound anger, supposed habit of walking away from relationships, his mother (by name), and one set of lyrics that exposed the fact that Drake had fathered a child with former adult-film star Sophie Brussaux (Drake would later verify the longtime rumors on Scorpion).
While Drake and West’s feud originally appeared to have transpired in recent months, West is now claiming it instead goes way back. “Since the pool line he’s been tryin to poke at me and f— with me,” Kanye tweeted in reference to Drake’s lyric from “Summer Sixteen,” in which he raps “Now I got a house in LA, now I got a bigger pool than Ye/ And look man, Ye’s pool is nice, mine’s just bigger’s what I’m saying.”
