Drake’s Verse On Trippie Redd’s ‘Betrayal’ Appears To Take Shot at Kanye West + Drake Laughs After Kanye Allegedly Leaks His Address
Back at it again? Drake and Kanye West have not been the best of friends over the years and now it seems as if some fuel has been added to the fire. While the two heavy hitters have some unsettling beef, Drake aired out a few things in his latest feature on Trippie Redd’s “Betrayal,” leading some to believe that he’s dissing Kanye West.
For background, Drake and Kanye West started off as good friends in 2009. Drake’s hit single “Find Your Love” was in fact produced and co-written by Kanye West.
It is not clear when feud beef began but fans speculated it started after Drake’s verse was removed from West’s “All of the Lights” in 2010.
Shortly after West and Jay-Z collaborated for their 2011 joint album, Watch the Throne, Drake appeared to take shots at them on DJ Khaled’s “I’m On One”. He rapped,
“Hate the rumors hate the bulls*** hate these f***in allegations/I’m just feelin’ like the throne is for the taking. Watch me take it.”
Later that year Drake made the following statement:
“When I was a kid trying to figure out what I liked, it was Ye who I related to the most. He was an artist, in every sense, from his cover art to his music. Now, I would say, he is really great competitor…and friend, at the same time… My goal is to surpass everything he’s accomplished. I don’t want to be as good as Kanye, I want to be better.”
While in 2015 West told The Breakfast Club that an album with Drake “might happen,” Drake rapped in “Summer Sixteen”:
“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.”
West later responded by saying he has three pools.
Throughout the years of their back and forth, the biggest fallout between the two rappers appears to be in 2018 when West claimed that Drake made threats toward him and his family.
West later criticized Travis Scott for allowing Drake to send shots in their song “Sicko Mode”.
In the hit single, Drake raps “Checks over stripes. That’s what I like” which was a dig at West’s partnership with Adidas after Drake partnered with Nike.
He later called out the song and wrote,
“F*** that sickomode song… Family first and always”
He appeared to be referencing Travis Scott’s relationship with his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner.
The massive tweets also sparked issues between Pusha T and Drake and the two both released diss tracks. Drake never responded to West’s tweets.
Now, almost two years later, Drake took a shot at West again on Trippe Redd’s “Betrayal” as he raps “Forty-five, forty-four, let it go. Ye ain’t changing s*** for me.” West quickly addressed the verse as he posted a screenshot on Instagram, which appears to show him confronting Drake in a group text. While the screenshot shows that West added Pusha T to the group, fans are left to guess who else was included in the message.
Hours after West’s now-deleted Instagram post, long-time friend Consequence came to West’s defense.
