This year, Kanye West has been all about preaching love. While his antics can be questionable sometimes, he always seems to make up for it through his extraordinary contributions to the culture. With Machine Gun Kellycontinuing to fuel his beef with Eminem, we shouldn’t be forgetting about another high-profile feud we witnessed this year. If Drake would have responded to Pusha T‘s “The Story of Adidon,” this could have possibly gone down as one of the best rap beefs of all time but alas, we’re left wondering what could have been. Kanye was trapped in the middle of the situation as his close friend and G.O.O.D. Music President Pusha T was going up against somebody he highly respects, Drake.
A day after some upcoming Drizzy lyrics made their way onto the web where he disses Ye’s Yeezy sneakers, the outspoken Chicagoan decided not to antagonize his fellow GOAT, instead choosing to extend an olive branch. “Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew,” wrote Kanye before praising the Canadian’s stage set-up. He then went on to apologize for seemingly everything that could have been misinterpreted, including a scuffle surrounding release dates, a possible collaboration on “Lift Yourself,” the ensuing diss tracks and information that was provided to Pusha T about Drake’s child. Ye claims that after his beef with Wiz Khalifa a few years ago, he would never bring a man’s child into his personal issues with them, denying responsibility for the info getting to Push.
There have always been rumors of a collaborative album between the two. Perhaps with Kanye attempting to make peace, we can finally start to wish for the super-project to make its way into the universe. Personally, I’m just wondering what Drake’s “poopity scoop” bars would have sounded like on “Lift Yourself.”
