After a multitude of fan theories, diss tracks, and interviews, the feud between rappers Kanye West and Drake has been laid out on the table for everyone to see. In a long-winded Twitter rant, West revealed what caused the tension between him and Drake and claimed that "this is all Jedi level."
According to West, here is exactly how the feud panned out:
First, he shared a photo of Drake's tour set, saying that he was sending him "good energy and love" and that he "understand(s) where the confusion started."

Then, West begins with apology number one which involves releasing his album 'Ye' ahead of schedule.
Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place … We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
Next, he explains why he did this, claiming his bizarre tweets and controversial TMZ interview were partly to blame. He also thought he was going to pause his Twitter rant because we was on an aeroplane but then continued anyways. Thanks for the play-by-play Kanye.
When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after … I have to hop on the plane now… will type more when I land— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
Then, West brought up his song 'Lift Yourself,' which for everyone who has heard it is a really good song that is butchered by West ending it by saying "Poopity scoop" a lot. Apparently, he was supposed to work on the song with Drake then took it for himself.
plane taxiing for take off... because we spoke about doing Lift Yourself together I should have given you the opportunity for us to do this together before I released it— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
The rapper then brings up the real drama. The diss track he produced for Pusha T that revealed the truth of Drake's child.
since we were building as friends and brothers I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar. There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
I never listened to either diss track that followed but I did hear quotes from both songs after they were released— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
I did not have any conversations about your child with Pusha. I don’t play with the idea of people’s children after I spoke to Wiz a few years earlier.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
I understand Pusha’s issues as a man if someone mentions your fiancé men go mask off. I’ve done the same myself at times. I love you and I love Pusha and we all have an admiration for each other’s craft.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
Finally, West wrapped up his apology spree by saying he appreciates Drake and his art, and plans to see his show this week.
This is all Jedi level. I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018
While fans are happy to see things cleared up between the two rappers, many are wondering, "y'all ain't got each other's numbers?"
