Kanye West apologizes to Drake for his role in Pusha T beef

Kanye West went on another tweet storm Wednesday, this time apologizing to Drake for “stepping on [his] release date in the first place” and his involvement in the Pusha T beef

The pair’s relationship was strained over the beat to West’s “Lift Yourself,” as well as his role in Pusha T’s diss tracks directed at Drake.

In a series of tweets, which started around 1am CT, West praised Drake’s performance on his Scorpion tour by sharing a screen grab of one of Drake’s latest Instagram posts.

Ye continued his apology, tweeting that “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.”

West also expressed regret for not stopping Pusha T’s lyric that suggested Drake used Quentin Miller as his ghostwriter. “Since we were building as friends and brothers I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar,” Ye tweeted. “There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you.”

West also said that he never listened to either of the rappers’ diss tracks and that he had never mentioned Drake’s child to Pusha T. His song “Adronis” was speculated to be named after Drake’s alleged son with porn actress Sophie Brussaux.

West’s apology comes shortly after another conspiracy theory arose on Twitter alleging that “Kiki” from Drake’s summer anthem “In My Feelings” is actually Kim Kardashian. Kardashian has since denied that an affair ever happened.

Despite all this, West ended his tweet storm on a high note, promising to show up at one of Drake’s upcoming shows.

As of Wednesday evening, Drake had not responded.
