Drake Talks Rihanna Romance, Kanye West Feud And More In New Interview
As the year 2019 draws closer to its end, Drake is giving the world an update on his respective relationships with Rihanna, Chris Brown, Pusha T and Kanye West.
The multiple award winning rapper recently got candid in a new interview on Tidal’s “Rap Radar”.
As fans of the “God’s Plan” artist will know, Drake and Kanye West have an ongoing feud. When asked about this, Drake explained that he could never “turn my back on the things that I’ve said about him in a positive light, and I still feel all those same things.”
Despite everything, Drake said that Kanye still would be his “favorite artist all around.”
“And that’s just facts. I have no problem saying that,” Drake continued. “Things have changed. I’m not just some kid that’s a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”
Later on in the interview, Drake talked about collaborating with Chris Brown on 2019’s “No Guidance” after their history of tension. Both Drake and Chris had been involved with Rihanna in the past, and as Drake explained, when they tried to make music together they were always “forcing it” and had “resentment” towards each other.
“You know, really at the end of the day, when you kind of step away from it and break it down, you start to feel silly because it’s over girl stuff,” Drake shared. “But obviously that could snowball into real s–t and that’s what happened in this situation.”
Without naming Rihanna, Drake said that “that person” who was “in the middle of us” is not currently a part of either of their lives. But, he mentioned that he has the “upmost love and respect” for her and thinks of her as “family.”
Drake said he had a moment of “hesitation” before working with Chris because he didn’t want Rihanna to feel “disrespected,” but he thinks that she would rather see them “put that issue to bed” than continue the feud.
