However, he did not clear the song sample. While Drake has yet to directly respond to Pusha T (nor does it seem like he actually will), but his feud with Kanye West seems to provide him some entertainment in his life.
According to Kanye, Drake asked Kanye's rep's to clear the sample on a freestyle titled "Say What's Real" from the his 2009 mixtape "So Far Gone". In his Twitter rant, Kanye said: "I told you I ain't tell Pusha about your son".
Well, that pretty much kicked Kanye into overdrive, with one of his early tweets reading: 'Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro You sneak dissing on trav records and texting Kris talking bout how's the family'. The subject matter led Drake to believe Kanye was relaying private information to Push, which led to some not so subliminal shots thrown in Ye's direction by Drizzy ever since.
'Sending purple emojis When I'm dealing with mental s**t I need my apologies now Not through scooter either Not through Travis [sic]' demanded the multi-platinum recording artist.
After several other accusatory statements Kanye reported back to fans an hour later stating that 'Drake finally called, ' and 'mission accomplished'.
The "Thank U, Next" singer took to Twitter to promote the release of her new song, "Imagine" - and some new music from Miley Cyrus - by politely suggesting that Kanye and Drake take a seat for the rest of the night. "I would never intentionally try to hurt you bro I never even heard none of the diss records That ain't my MO never did a diss record", he said.
