Serious question: Did Kanye West actually think that Twitter was the best place to apologize to Drake? Surely, a bouquet of flowers and a greeting card that read: “I didn’t tell the world about your secret kid” would have been more appropriate, no?
Well, too late for that, we suppose. On Sept. 5, Kanye issued a series of head-scratching, lengthy tweets in attempts to squash his beef with everyone’s favorite Champagne Papi. Check out the video above to see them all!
OK, time to analyze, y’all. What makes Kanye’s tweets all the more confusing is his timing. After all, no less than two days ago the entire Internet was convinced that Kim Kardashian and Drake had an affair. It seems curious that Kanye would decide to apologize to Drake coming off the heels of such a scandal — true or not!
Of course, it’s important to note that Kanye stressed that he didn’t have “any conversations with [Pusha T]” about Drake’s child. For those of you who are unaware, the story goes a little something like this: Pusha T and Drake had beef that culminated in a diss track from Pusha titled “The Story of Adidon.”
Basically, Pusha outed Drake for keeping his child with former porn star, Sophie Brussaux, a secret. Which Drake later confirmed in a track of his own — not that he really had a choice. Anyway, Kanye was allegedly responsible for telling Pusha to begin with and that’s where this whole thing got started.
Moving on, Kanye’s tweets were pretty darn mushy-gushy. We’re not suggesting that it’s not cool for Kanye to show Drake some man-to-man love but… why not just text him?
“This is all Jedi level,” the father-of-three began his final tweet. TBH, we still don’t even know what that means. What does Star Wars have to do with anything, Kanye? “I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created,” Kanye concluded.
All things considered, Kanye did seem awfully sincere and frankly, we think the music industry could use one less feud to contend with. Ahem, Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott, G-Eazy and Machine Gun Kelly, oh, and of course, Eminem with basically everyone in the rap community.
That said, we do have a small piece of advice for Kanye: When you’re tweeting an apology to someone, it’s useful to actually tag their handle… just sayin’.
