Drake took his beef with Kanye West to a whole new height yesterday.
While appearing as a guest on SiriusXM’s Sound 42, the Toronto rapper broadcasted an unreleased Kanye West track, “Life of the Party” which didn’t make Donda cut, and which takes aim at Drake in lyrics addressing rising tensions between the him and Kanye.
This shocking turn comes amid their ressurected beef, with Drake dragging Kanye in his guest appearance on Trippie Redd’s “Betrayal” last month.
It is worthy to note that Kanye had recently previewed “Life of the Party,” a sprawling epic featuring a rare André 3000 verse, at a Donda event in Las Vegas. The version Drake played, however, was studio quality.
“I put Virgil and Drake on the same text, and it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress,” Kanye raps on the track. “Just told these grown men stop it with the funny shit.” He goes on to allude to the pair’s scrapped plans to collaborate: “Thought we was the new Abu Dhabi/Told Drake don’t play with me on GD and he sent that message to everybody/So if I hit you with a ‘WYD,’ you better hit me with, ‘Yessir, I’m writing everything you need.’”
On the radio show, Drake also dropped in an unreleased track of his own called “Mention Me,” although its subject matter was unrelated to the spat. You can follow the Drake and Kanye beef here.
