Drake Seemingly Targets Kanye West on Trippie Redd’s ‘Betrayal’


Both Drake and West are in the process of releasing new albums. The Toronto MC’s long-delayed sixth album, Certified Lover Boy, is expected to arrive sometime this summer; and Ye’s upcoming 10th album, Donda, has been teased at large-scale listening events and is speculated to drop soon.

West’s long-term collaborator Consequence responded to Drake’s diss in a tweet on Saturday. “F— a betrayal. It’s the disrespect for me dawg,” the rapper wrote alongside a screenshot of the track’s lyrics. “Wit Trippie Redd shotgun. Respect my team. It’s party time.”

Kanye also seemingly responded to Drake’s latest on-record diss in a group text with other rappers, including Drizzy’s other hip-hop rival Pusha T. On Saturday, Ye reportedly posted and quickly deleted a screenshot of his group chat on Instagram, which featured a photo of actor Joaquin Phoenix in his full Joker movie makeup.

“I live for this. I’ve been f—ed with by nerd a– jock n—-s like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you,” Kanye wrote in the group text, which was screengrabbed by NME.
