Over the years, things between the Eazy rapper and the Her Loss hitmaker have turned sour.
What happened between Kanye West and Drake?
On June 29, 2018, Drake released his fifth studio album Scorpion.
The project consisted of several tracks including the Billboard Hot 100 hit single In My Feelings.
In that song, Drake raps about a love interest named Kiki, which listeners thought was a thinly-veiled reference to Kanye’s then-wife Kim Kardashian.
Although Kiki is Kim’s family nickname, she denied ever having an affair with Drake.
Despite Kiki’s real identity as Drake’s former love interest K’yanna Barber and not Kim, Kanye disclosed that he did not appreciate the Certified Lover Boy rapper perpetuating rumors about Kim.
Months later on Thursday, September 20, Kanye took to social media to discuss the rumors about a supposed hookup between Kim and Drake.
On Instagram, the Chicago-based star said: “The fact that people are making rumors and thinking that you f***ed my wife and you’re not saying anything and you’re carrying it on like that…don’t sit well with my spirit.”
“Y’all be promoting that negativity, you think that’s cool for social media.

“If you get in an interview, don’t mention my wife. Don’t be making no suggestions like somebody f***ed my wife.”
Around the same time, it was revealed that Kanye spilled some information about Drake’s personal life to fellow rapper Pusha T.
In Pusha’s diss track The Story of Adidon, Kanye’s labelmate took aim at Drake and even went as far as to mention his then-unknown son Adonis.
The lyrics from the song exposed that Drake had a then-secret son, which ignited the feud between himself, Kanye, and Pusha even further.
Fast forward to August and September 2021, Kanye and Drake sparked more controversy as the two musicians traded lyrical jabs at each other on the former’s album DONDA and the latter’s record Certified Lover Boy.
When did Kanye and Drake make up?
On November 16, 2021, it appeared that the feuding performers put their beef to rest.
That Tuesday night, Drake and Kanye posted clips and photos of each other to their respective Instagram stories.
The two were photographed alongside mutual friend and record executive J Prince as they captioned their posts with dove emojis.
The occasion happened to be a party at Drake’s residence in Toronto.
While in Drake’s hometown, Kanye and J Prince also attended a comedy show by Dave Chappelle.
As the four of them hung out, Dave said during his set: “Make some noise for Kanye and Drake… and make some noise for our reconciliation!”
How long were Kanye and Drake friends?
After they made peace in Toronto, things between the two frenemies appeared to be mended.
Fast forward to November 4, 2022, when Drake and 21 Savage released their joint album Her Loss.
On the project, Drake supposedly aims another dig at Kanye on the track Circo Loco.
On the song, the former raps: “Linking with the opps, b***h, I did that s**t for J Prince….B***h, I did it for the mob ties.”
That Friday, the Yeezy designer responded to the lyrics on Twitter and commented: “Enough already I done gave this man his flowers multiple times.
“Let’s really see who are real ops are in this music game. Imagine all the rappers on the same side and everyone cleaning up each others contracts. It’s kingdom time. Love Drake.”
