It's another "I'm sorry" from Kanye West as he took to Twitter on Wednesday in order to make an official apology to Drake addressing their current feud. You would think he could honestly have put everything onto one tweet but he ended up putting it in nine different ones. His earliest tweet, "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." Along with the tweet, he had posted a screenshot image of Drake's stage that included a scorpion to promote his new album, Scorpion.
It seems that Yeezy has put himself in the middle of something again that has got him into some trouble. Why does he always do this to himself and what was he thinking? In his next tweet, he apologizes by saying, "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."
Okay, Kanye, like you didn't know that working with Pusha T with the diss track talking about Drake's child during Drake's album release date wouldn't cause any issues?! I don't care what any of the press says, you had to have played Drake's song to Pusha T before they created the diss track. End of story. How else would it have happened because according to what we know with Drake, his song he played for you before he put it on his album was a private matter. It was a brother to brother thing that was dealt in honor and was to be kept private before it was released to the public. Where did the leakage come from and how did Pusha T find out about it unless you had him listen to the song before the diss track was created and released?
And the truth comes out.
Check out this next tweet: "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."
Um... you think? Yeezy, you should've done that before the diss track was released and as a matter of fact, you shouldn't have gotten involved with assisting with any song that dissed Drake or his son in the first place. If you were a true friend. To me, it looks like the only snake in the building is you; not Taylor Swift or anyone else. This is all on you and that's why you drummed up a Twitter spree late last night to make sure you were covering yourself and your career. Hey, I know what could fix this. When it comes to the next VMA awards and Drake's a nominee, I don't care who's accepting the award on stage. You should get up there and say, "Imma let you finish. Drake has one of the best songs of all time." Drake deserves that, you know?
This is Yeezy trying to put the record straight.
He pleads not guilty on this one. His next tweet says, "I never listened to either diss track that followed but I did hear quotes from both songs after they were released." I'm sorry. I don't believe this at all. This is a way for him to attempt to save himself from any public or social media attacks let alone with an attempt to keeping it cool with Drake. This tweet is called a "career saver" or a genius motive to stay in the press; whether it's good or not to get the spotlight attention, he needs to make money.
Here's another one, "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." Sure. I believe that like I believe all of the other tweets. <--sarcasm here
Then he brings it all together to a Jedi level.
He then brings it all together doing it Star Wars style. His next and last tweet explains, "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."
Do you really, Kanye? I wouldn't call this love at all. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't even call it admiration. The real term for it is "stirring the poop" in order to keep the limelight on you because you don't know how to do it any other way. I mean, c'mon. Yet you try to take the credit when it comes to making everybody else famous. Why, you even wrote a song about it.
He finally says, "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." This is called a way to seal the deal and keeping it real. In Kanye's mind, there's no way at all Drake will be able to respond negatively to that. Kanye thinks that his show-up will be a Drake crowd blowup. Honestly, Kanye, I don't think Drake needs your help. If I were you, I'd just leave it there.
