After months of friction, Kanye West apologized to Drake in a Twitter spree Wednesday morning (September 5). In the tweets, he addressed Drake’s beefs with Pusha-T and Kid Cudi, the G.O.O.D. Music album rollout and its proximity to Drake’s Scorpion release date, a collaborative version of Kanye’s “Lift Yourself” that never materialized, and more.

West also said he did not feed Pusha-T information about Drake’s son—a topic Push brought to light on the diss track “The Story of Adidon” and Drake broached across Scorpion. “I don’t play with the idea of people’s children after I spoke to Wiz a few years earlier,” Kanye wrote. He concluded, “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.” Find his tweets below.

Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew💜💜💜

I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online

I understand where the confusion started

KANYE WEST

@kanyewest

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.

@kanyewest

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

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

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

I never listened to either diss track that followed but I did hear quotes from both songs after they were released

KANYE WEST

@kanyewest

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

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.

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.

Drake has used much of his recent output to resurface grievances and rebuke perceived slights. On “Duppy Freestyle,” his original response to Push’s Daytona track “Infrared,” Drake returned ghostwriting allegations by saying he’d “done things for [Kanye] I thought that he never would need.” On June 2, after the release of “The Story of Adidon,” Kanye tweeted, “I’ve never been about beef, I’m about love… lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone… so this is dead now.”

Scorpion and Drake’s subsequent “Behind Barz” freestyle include what many listeners believe to be veiled shots at Ye. At the Chicago stop of his “Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour,” Drake changed a lyric in “Know Yourself,” rapping, “Then Kanye flopped, it was polos and backpacks.”

In a radio interview last week, Kanye said, “We all got love for Drake. We understand that he got upset about [“The Story of Adidon”]. I feel that it was insensitive for [Drake] to in any way stress me out after TMZ, while I’m in Wyoming healing, pulling all the pieces together, working on my music. And you know, we’ll reconcile that one day because we got to, because we got work to do, and these voices is just too powerful.”
