Drake Thanks Kanye West For Helping His Career
Feuding rap stars, Drake and Kanye West may finally be burying the hatchet very soon as Drake has given a shout out to West for helping him during the initial stage of his career.
This shout out is coming amidst rife rumours that Drake had sex with West’s wife, Kim Kardashian. West who has issued several call outs and warnings to Drake during the beef had even alleged that Drake threatened his family.
However, in an Instagram post, Drake thanked Kanye West and a host of others like Omarion, who probably didn’t know he did a song with him in Canada years ago. Drake wrote:
“@futuretheprince a decade ago you were Dj’ing all ages parties…@ovo40 a decade ago you were scared to share your beats…@oliverelkhatib a decade ago you worked at a clothing store selling someone else’s product…@boi1da a decade ago you were in a basement with pink insulation walls figuring out fruity loops…@ovoniko a decade ago we were handing out flyers promoting club nights…@realbriamyles a decade ago you were working the makeup counter at Beverly Centre…@nebzilla a decade ago your moms house was my safe place and we really ran through the 6 everyday together…@bunb a decade ago you were a legend and you will remain that forever…@benballera decade ago you promoted me as if you were getting a cut of my career…@treysongz a decade ago you were the first person to recognize potential and give me a co-sign…@omarion a decade ago you came to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and laid a verse for an unknown artist from Canada…@darkiemade a decade ago you emailed me the cover art for something that would change my life forever….@kingjames a decade ago you came to my release party at 6 Degrees and made me the biggest artist in the city off your presence alone…@kanyewest a decade ago I rapped over your beat cause you just made the best shit and even though you stay wildin on twitter these days I will never forget what you contributed to the game and my career…Portia I don’t know your IG but a decade ago you told me to rap over June 27th and bonded me and Houston Texas forever…@jas.prince a decade ago you took a chance on MySpace and introduced me to Wayne…@liltunechi a decade ago you took me out of Toronto and gave me the biggest blessing anybody has ever given me…I will never forget anybody involved in this journey even if you don’t fit in this caption…So Far Gone streaming everywhere for the first time ever Thursday.”
We reported earlier that Drake’s mic got cut off during his acceptance speech at the 51st Grammy awards when he seemingly shaded the award ceremony as irrelevant and not a yardstick for success.
