Kanye West goes on Twitter rant against Drake -- on Taylor Swift's birthday

Kanye West goes on Twitter rant against Drake -- on Taylor Swift's birthday

On Thursday, Kanye West fired off a series of tweets directed at Drake in which he brought up the multiple issues he has with the Canadian artist.

The tweets were apparently inspired by a recent request from Drake's camp to approve the sampling of Kanye's song "Say You Will", over which Drake rapped on his early mixtape song "Say What's Real", which is now not available on Apple Music or Spotify. 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.

Kanye West seems to have a lot to get off his chest because now he is claiming that Drake is threatening him and calling the Young Money rapper a bully who picks on people with mental illness. This time, the spree of tweets was related to his rocky relationship with Drake.

Another result of the fallout was Pusha T revealed Drake had fathered an illegitimate child with an adult-film star.

Earlier, West wrote: "You threaten the safety of me and my family". At one point, West tweeted that he and Drake had spoken on the phone, even writing "mission accomplished", before ultimately continuing his attacks.

"Leave me and my family alone bro", he added in another tweet.

Ariana Grande doesn't want Kanye West's Twitter tirade to distract from her new music.

Kanye then called out Drake for "texting" Kris Jenner instead of answering any of his tweets or texts. It ground to a halt (maybe) with a "vibe" triptych: "I will never make a diss record".

Some of Kanye's other rantings, include: "This year has been really tough and you have added to the confusion..."
