Drake Leaks Diss Record From Kanye West Aimed At Him, Song Features André 3000 Rapping To Their Late Mothers
UPDATE #2: Following Drake’s leak of Kanye West’s “Life of the Party,” Andre 3000 is making a rare public statement. He says,
“A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album. I was inspired by his idea to make a musical tribute to his mom. It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013. We both share that loss. I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but, unfortunately, I didn’t know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an edited ‘clean’ format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. So, sadly, I had to be omitted from the original album release.”
“The track I received and wrote to didn’t have the diss verse on it and we were hoping to make a more focused offering for the Donda album but I guess things happen like they are supposed to. It’s unfortunate that it was released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth. I wanted to be on Certified Lover Boy too. I just want to work with people that inspire me. Hopefully I can work with Kendrick on his album. I’d love to work with Lil’ Baby, Tyler and Jay-Z. I respect them all.”
Original Story: If you thought the beef between Drake and Kanye West was over, it just got more interesting.
Yesterday(9/3), Drake released ‘Certified Lover Boy‘ breaking streaming records on both Apple Music and Spotify. But this was not enough for the award-winning rapper, who later leaked an unreleased diss-track from Kanye West.

While hosting a guest mix on SiriusXM’s Sound 42 show, Drizzy aired the unreleased track, ‘Life of the Party,’ which featured Kanye West and André 3000.
In ‘Life of the Party,‘ Kanye name-drops Drake rapping,
“I put Virgil [Abloh] and Drake on the same text and it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress/ Just told these grown men stop it with the funny s***/ Thought we was the new Abu Dhabi/ Told Drake don’t play with me on GD and he sent that message to everybody/ So if I hit you with a ‘WYD,’ you better hit me with, ‘Yessir, I’m writing everything you need.'”
The six-and-a-half-minute song continues with OutKast’s very own, André 3000, rapped about the loss of his own mother, a theme many expected from ‘Donda,’ which was named after Kanye’s late mother, Donda West, who died in 2007.
André 3000 raps,
“Hey Miss Donda, if you ran into my mama, please tell her I said, ‘Say something’/ I’m starting to believe ain’t no such thing as Heaven’s trumpets/ No after-over, this is it, done/ If there’s a Heaven, you would think they’d let you speak to your son.”
The song was allegedly supposed to be on Kanye’s new album ‘Donda’ but was mysteriously left off like many others.
There is no indication as to how Drake got his hands on the track, he did not stop there, later taunting the Chi-town rapper with a picture with the caption, “Waste Removal.”
He also allegedly dissed Kanye on his song, “7 am On Bridle Path.”
Addressing Kanye releasing his address to the public Drake raps,
“Get that address to your driver, make it your destination/ Stead of just a post out of desperation.”
At this time Kanye has not responded.
