Kanye West rants on Twitter, demanding apology from Drake

Kanye West has fired up his feud with rap rival Drake after learning the Canadian star had asked to use a sample of his 2009 song Say What's Real. He posted a screenshot of someone named Free informing hm that the Toronto MC sought a clearance request for "Say What's Real" and - because these two have spent most of 2018 tangled in a confusing war of words - Kanye was not happy about it. "He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world".

Expanding on that last tweet, Kanye claimed he was responsible for Drake's success, tweeting, "I'm the guy with the pink polo that made a way for him..."

Drake alleged Kanye was the source who gave Pusha T information about his son, but Kanye has publicly denied ever having "any conversations about your child with Pusha".

West then wound down with a string of tweets concluding with "All positive vibes. all love", and then started up again Friday morning, sending two tweets related to long-deceased banker J.P. Morgan. The fusillade of f-kery is headache-inducing if you sit down and try to make sense of it all; even Travis Scott, whose name always seems to stay in folks' mouths despite generally minding his Black-ass business, got dragged into it all.

After taking a break for a bit during the middle of the day (our time), Ye came back with new accusations of Drake threatening him over the phone.

Despite the conflict, Kanye said it was an "opportunity for growth" and encouraged Drake to reach out for a dialogue. I'm Ye bro. Remember that I love you. I'm an inspiration to both him and Drake. What's really surprising here is Kanye tweeting about Travis, who he's offended worked with Drake on the song "Sicko Mode". "So cut the tough talk", he wrote.

Earlier in the evening, West tweeted that "you are disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions so this is an opportunity for growth".

"Leave me and my family alone bro", the father of three continued. He also said he will never release a diss track: "I will never put negative energy into a song".
