Kanye West, Drake

Kim Kardashian-West showed support for husband Kanye West on Twitter.com amid Kanye’s public feud with rapper Drake.

The Internet was abuzz on Thursday when Kanye took to Twitter.com to slam Drake after the Canadian rapper asked to clear Kanye's sample from his 2009 track "Say What's Real".

Drake included the track on his 2009 breakthrough mixtape So Far Gone.

Kanye was not amused that Drake went behind his back to text Kardashain matriarch Kris Jenner.

While Kanye and Drake appeared to have settled their differences after a series of tweets on Thursday, the emotional father-of-three returned to Twitter in the early morning hours of Friday to accuse Drake of threatening his family.

"Drake called me threatening me," he tweeted around midnight Friday. "I'm a man about my family and integrity."

Kim, who had enough of the squabbling between the two men, took to Twitter to defend Kanye, tweeting Drake: "Never threaten my husband or our family. He paved the way for there to be a Drake."

She continued:

"My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world."

Drake seemingly brushed off Kanye's earlier tweets by posting five crying with laughter emojis on his Instagram Stories.

Kanye continued to express his hurt feelings on Twitter early Friday: "I have a problem with sneak disssing [sic]," he tweeted. "I love everybody all positive energy No one that is a musician should ever diss me My existence is for the rights of all artist."

Then Kanye compared himself to the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, writing, "I need that love and respect that we didn’t give Michael while I’m alive."

In September, Kanye apologized to Drake after rumors began circulating about an illicit sexual affair between Drake and Kim.

    Yeah this says it all.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Saw this last night. I'm not defending Ye (at all). But, I believe everything he said about Drake.

    XXX said the same thing. He actually said if he died, it would be Drake's doing. (It wasn't...but I'm saying)

    Jhonni Blaze said some things about Drake.

    That other stripper said some things about him as well.

    What????

  • Kim’s Original Face

    So sick of the kardashians/west. Now he has an issue with travis and ongoing fued with pusha.

    If you wanted to talk man to man call HIM why cry to us. Shut up

    And kim chiming in talking about kanye paved the way

    Ray J paved the way...nevermind hoe shut up! Sick of allademmmmm

  • tia

    So, is Drake another "Nicki"? From behind the scenes, pulling stunts and causing chaos and then turn around and play the "victim." Interesting.....

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I don't believe anything Kanya says ...... ever .... got nothing else .... I ain't even reading the write up .... Sorry Sandra be back on another post ..... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/280af94b4e6f9837031514beb46cc09bda7bed2baab942ea4293410403dc0c19.gif

  • GAPeach

    He was probably up DM'ing Trump.

  • Slim Goodie

    How when he's low key your new step dad? Peep the "Calling Kris" line. SMH

  • Slim Goodie

    Mob ties LOL

  • ohdearme

    Yup, she needs to stop entertaining this bs too before he gets hurt. The dude has mental issues take his phone.

  • ViolettaBliss

    Kanye and Kim are the two most delusional celebs out there ! They seem to not understand that "Genius" is not a term one uses when speaking of oneself . Genius is something recognized in you by others and then they profess you to be a genius. Only someone as vapid as Kim could be married to a total nut job who refuses to take his meds.

  • LeeSeeCee

    Once again, he has done, did, inspired every f*cking thing for everybody else.. I just cannot with Kanye West anymore. Just cannot do it anymore. The man asked to sample your music. A simple yes or no would have sufficed. This sh*t here, is childish. Not for one stinking minute do I believe that Aubrey, who grew up in Canada on a mfing TV show, rolls hard enough to threaten someone's family and jeopardize his freedom/life. Get a damn grip. I can see Kanye totally misconstruing something to fit the fu*ked up narrative he got going on in that brain since he does not want to partake of his meds. Do I believe that Aubrey fu*ked KK? Yes, I do. Better questions would be who hasn't she slept with? She was/is an industry wh*re. Sorry, not sorry.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I have a problem with sneak disssing
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    KNEE-GROW PLEASE. ALL of this started out yesterday as a series of fukkin SUB-TWEETS. You were what seemed like HUNDREDS of Tweets IN before you even SAID it was Drake. GTFOH. I dont like Drake but this misguided fool here. I canna.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I believe some of it. A lot of it. But Drake tryna kill me was a stretch tho.

  • SpillyNillie

    NEEEEXXXXXXXXXXXXTTTTTTTTTT!

  • LeeSeeCee
  • ohdearme

    Let's be honest though, he wasn't this crazy when she married him, she really thought she had something back then. Then everyone knew about the 5150 "sleep deprivation" hold! LOL

  • xenaD

    Drake? Playing victim? He ain’t even said nothing lol... Kanye is literally going on a tirade and Drake is silent af! It feels like Kanye didn’t take his meds & is forcing the wife to not hang him out to dry! This all started cause drake reached out to Kanye’s camp to see if he can get a feature cleared! Yes I was on the shade room last night ??

  • Jay

    not sure what all this is about but team Drake on GP alone...Thank you next.

  • xenaD

    And it’s not even Kanye I’m mad at! He used to be so great. He really is becoming disappointing at this point.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Kim...he can't be too brilliant if he got h00ked up with you and your gang of gypsies.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I will say this... if Drake is the reason that guy ran on the stage at Pusha's concert, it will get ugly. Pusha is not Kanye. Periodt.

  • queen of cups

    Correct !!!!

  • Whirl

    I like Kimmy

  • Prince Zuko

    Mr. Kardashian (Kanye west) need to sit his ol ass down and chill out for sec. His music latey has been hot garabage for a while now. I'm not a drake fan but the kid is way more relavent than this clown. I'm sick of watching a grown man cey all the time. He's mad at Ray j for smashing his wife he's mad jayz for not calling him he's mad at tayor swift for winning an award I mean damn this guy always has something to say but still and all can't make a fire beat without a corny azz sample.

  • Victorious82

    These sound like the rantings of an unstable man. Paranoia is a hallmark symptom of many mental illnesses. I think he might be having an episode. Kim is just doing damage control.

  • Whirl

    Not feeling the new gangsta drake image

  • KcoolMuziq

  • Brooklyn23

    Lmao @ Kanye paved the way for drake. Uhmmmm mi no like that (in a Jamaican accent)
    She a liar

  • Whirl

    ‘I’m Upset’ lyrics: “SMS, triple X (XXX?)
    That's the only time I ever shoot below the neck”

  • GAPeach

    Sandra, I thought there had to be 2 people involved to be having a twitter feud. The only one ranting is Kanye delusional ass.

  • GAPeach

    I've given up on him. He is acting like a spoiled teenager.

  • Brooklyn23

    The same crazy shit you be seeing on top of Kanyed head is the same shit that goes on inside his head. Him all types of messes. Who told him it was cool to have botched up coloring on his head. This ninga need to donate money to me so I can find constructive shit to do with it. I need a new post tho... I'm at the docs I need time to go pass

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    These delusional negros kill me. smh.

    Donda West would be rolling in her grave right now if she saw how looney her son has become.

  • LYRICS

    "Gypsies", u called them gypsies and I fell out!!!!

  • WhoKnew

    The attention seeking drugged out and delusional dwarf and his porn star wife with the lopsided ass are off their meds again I see. Next.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Why does everyone think Kanye is lying? Serious question. When Cardi was arguing with herself (bc Nicki was ignoring her) and claiming Nicki was stopping her bag everyone believed it. Nicki and Drake are from the same camp, but you can't believe Drake with his new thug persona called and threatened bipolar "I just want everyone to like me" Kanye?

  • oshh16

    Aubrey is a real douche, can't understand folk that fall for his tortured soul, emo, fake feminism act.

  • Around the world

    LOL Does Kanye pay you to say that in every post about him? Well I hope you're team meds, because your boy is off it.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Only part I think is fabricated is the Drake tryna kill me. I do believe Drake on some fukkery, I do believe Drake is a throw rocks and hide your hands dude. But Drake killing someone? A child star. Who has a semi-famous parent himself. Killing someone even on a contract basis? I personally dont see it. And I also think a lot of folks think Ye is lying based on DELIVERY. He literally came outta left field with this yesterday. It was no REAL public incident that made him just launch into all of this. It was a regular Thursday afternoon. He Tweeted I think I read over 100 times about this. Not normal. But it WAS some truth told.

  • Whirl

    Liked Drake more so before he switched over to the pseudo gangsta image. Miss the “Best I Ever Had” Drake.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Kanye needs to just fade away...he is delusional and Kim aint no better...she needs to keep her culture vulturing ass outta this mess and worry about giving her husband his daily Abilify enema...

  • Mints

    Koonye vs Black face Drake. Who cares

  • ClaireHuxtable

    They put spells and magic on guys with money. Since it's European in origin, most Black men don't realize it until it's too late.
    Then...their minds have turned into mincemeat.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    True Michael fans actually loved and appreciated him when he was here.

    Kim saying that her husband is the most brilliant person she knows says A LOT. She’s a wife I guess, and her husband’s biggest supporter. Both are out of touch with reality ?????

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Psst... excuse me. Umm... Is there somebody who can direct me to the nearest Karjenwest free zone? Talk about overkill. Sheesh!

  • Judge Mental Will

    Ummmm Kanye was actually arguing with himself.

  • SemajBeyPhilly

    When drake ever claimed to be a thug? Only thing different about him is his new muscles. I never get the “I’ll kill you for looking at me wrong” look from Drake. He’s nobody thug.

  • SoulfulLove

    Kanye done got a hold of Kim's password I see

  • Soon2BWife

    In other (real) news..... Kendall Jenner is the world's highest paid model for 2018. 22.5 million. I really would like Kris to write a book about business. She is the only genius I see. Literally, created an Empire out of nothing. Hats off!!

  • Logan Roberts

    Exactly we are the public, we don't know what's really going behind the scenes.

  • Tinytoon

    Cher's song, Gypies, Tramps & Thieves comes to mind. ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He Tweeted I think I read over 100 times about this. Not normal.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Definitely not normal. Was likely manic. But, I know right before he claimed to have spoken to Drake, Drake sent out those laughing emojis. All downhill from there...

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Hello ? All thanks due to Ray J ? There would be NOTHING without Mr. Norwood. No Kylie makeup, no Kendall modeling, no Khloe doing whatever tf it is she does.

  • FukkFolks2018

    THIS! He instigated and egged it.

  • Marlika

    Kim STFU!! How did Kanye paved the wave for there to be a Drake? Bish stay saying dumb ish!??????

  • morenYAHdelsur

    May be true. All that you listed have sketchy credibility though.

    X was beating bishes and shoving objects up their orifices. Jhonni Blaze has fake abs ????? I meannn, any bish that’ll tan some abs on is a NO. Not sure about the stripper though LOL her claim may hold some validity.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Literally, created an Empire out of nothing.
    ^^^^^^^^^
    Oh Kris had something. She had 5 girls. She created an Empire off of her own personal harem of hoes. She made an Empire off of the world's oldest profession. Pimping. She birthed a gold mine.

  • Whirl

    Drake use to be one of the rare rappers who showed a certain regard for women. Now it seems like he’s joined the “women are hos and batches” ensemble.

  • Logan Roberts

    None us know what Drake really said or what Drake is really like behind closed doors either. I don't necessarily believe everything Kanye says/tweets either, but I'm pretty damn sure he knows Drake better than us.

  • Gloria

    It's all in his new music. Lol. Ever heard of his song "mob ties?" The man literally says "sick of these niggas, bout to hire some help, get rid of these niggas."

    Drake may not be a thug. But he has thugs on his payroll, for sure. I believe Kanye.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Kanye is mentally disturbed, and Drake is a buster!

  • Gloria

    Definitely believe Kanye. Drake has been coming at him all year and this wouldn't be Drake's first time threatening one of his enemies.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Saved by the Bell? When? I thought it was Degrassi.

  • Tinytoon

    Funny you mentioned Kendall's modeling, its reported that she is the highest paid model of 2018. Kris knows how to jack up numbers.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    It's their family theme song.

  • Lady_Elle

    It is! lol

  • Renee26

    Fugg Kanye

  • Renee26

    She caping hard for her man ?

  • Tinytoon

    You notice the 2nd highest earned model, Karlie Kross I think, made half of what Kendall earned?

  • Sha

    Michael Jackson my A_ _, keep listening to those Hodashians.

  • Karen Brady

    Shut up Kum.

  • Sha

    I'm trying to figure that one out myself, maybe people like Teyana Taylor, she looks like his puppet anyway. He tell her jump high, she's like, how high would you like me to jump..........

  • Karen Brady

    This. Whole. Entire. Comment.

  • Karen Brady

    Not an Alibify enema.... LAWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD I may be crine the rest of the day!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Karen Brady

    When Cardi was arguing with herself (bc Nicki was ignoring her) *tears*

  • Sha

    Many have done that, you are only hearing about them because they are on reality t.v. Master P started by selling tapes from his trunk of his car.

  • Sha

    Agree totally.

  • Karen Brady

    Well he's a "wig-splitter" now... LMAO... sit down Drake.

  • Simone

    Why do we always treat our own kind the worst? If Drake sampled a White artist, he would've paid him. I hate to interject race but it's true. He clearly sampled Kanye's "Say You Will". Kanye's 808s & Heartbreak was a masterpiece and one of (if not The) the greatest and most influential albums of the 2000s. It brilliantly & uniquely blended electronic pop and hip hop. It gave birth to the sounds of Drake, Childish Gambino and Kid Cudi, just to name a few. Good job Kim Kardashian on always having your man's back (unlike Beyonce who faded away when Solange attacked Jay Z).

  • Karen Brady

    I am almost on THE FLOOR!!! Nicely said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ?jessica?

    Kim shut the fukkc up. You didn't know a damn thing about hip-hop till Kanye came along and you still dont really know. Stay in your lane hoe?

  • Whirl

    I agree. Before Kanye rap was immersed in gangster rap. He was the first during that time to make being a nerdy rapper cool. While other guys were rapping about harming other black males Kanye was rapping “Through The Fire” from that College Drop Out Album. The nerdy rapper door began to flood open after him. It’s simply the truth. Makes no difference. Drake seemingly is no longer cloaked in the nerdy rapper garb anymore so...

  • Whirl

    And I’ll take it one step further- just like I’m not sure if there would have been a Michael Jordan if there were no Scottie Pippen, I’m not sure if there would be the JayZ that we know today had there been no Kanye. That’s just my humble opinion.

  • Gloria

    Totally agree with you. Kanye is a musical legend and definitely changed hip-hop!

  • Karen Brady

    Same here. All of it.

  • Simone

    Big facts!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    I'm a bill printer, I'm a grave digger <<< he claiming it. I think its hilarity. Go back to being a fan girl over all things basketball. I liked you much better

  • Coy little wink

    Hip hop has always been about bragging and beefing. Man up Kanye! Stop crying on Twitter get it the studio and spit some hot fire on wax bruh...

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    I don’t think anyone cares of K**naye is lying or not! He’s cut tf off, period. Cry to then h03s not us.

  • Harley

    But Kanye didn’t “pave” the way for Drake! Their are loads of hip hop artist out here. Jay Z paved his way! All she needs to worry about is Ray j and Paris Hilton paving her ho ways. I can’t wait till that family goes away

  • FukkFolks2018

    From the 90s to present time they done took it too far. Rap beef killings. I nutted on your baby seat (Jay-Z). Exposing kids and what not. I wish it COULD go back to JUST bragging rights.

  • ???TheRider???

    Kum Dumpster, fixed it.

  • Harley

    Let’s not forget Roger and Zapp who used that sound and inspired Kanye!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Dame paved Kanye's way. Jay didnt even want to sign him as a artist. Was trying to keep him as the beats man for the label.

  • ???TheRider???

    She’s gotta make it look good before she dumps him after the holidays.

  • Simone

    Drake didn't do a diss track about Kanye (he hasn't even responded to Pusha T yet...and never will), so Kanye doesn't need to "spit some hot fire". Drake stole his music by sampling without permission. He needs to pay Kanye.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I can’t wait till that family goes away
    ^^^^^^^^
    All of em! Even the grands. Get the hell on lmao

  • Harley

    And it’s sad because she walks a mess on the runway and has the same face in most of her shoots

  • Coy little wink

    That a simple solution..sue him. Why 80 tweets then?

  • Harley

    You mean the guy who said slavery was a choice and supports trump and his wife poses naked for attention and is a narcissist like him?? Hmmm wonder why people don’t believe him....wonder if he’s off his meds ?

  • Harley

    ?

  • Karen Brady

    I was thinking the same thing about J and him.

  • Karen Brady

    Right.. thanks.. I was thinking bucket when I wrote it but she needs a dumpster .

  • Coy little wink

    Well that is true but Kanye still needs to get in the studio, no? The old Kanye that is...

  • Naomi

    He was shot above his ear.

  • Scromes1212

    Your delusional if you think Ye didn't pave the way for drake smh there was no artist like Ye before him and he changed the game. He made it cool to be yourself in hiphop. Drake and others like him wouldn't have had a chance if not for Ye

  • FukkFolks2018

    He gone sis. Old Kanye. He is a perm. resident in his suken place.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Kanye is ticked because Drake supposedly dissed him on a Travis Scott song. He feels disrespected because Travis allowed him to do it and Drake didn't care enough about him to not do it. As far as Kim, she is sickening. She jumped in this quick but waited until his slavery rant died down to back him months later. I wish we could keep Drake and send her and the whole family to Canada. GTFOH

  • Scromes1212

    She is just defending her husband smh what's wrong with that?

  • Scromes1212

    Ye is not a battle rapper he doesn't make dis songs

  • Wreckognize Game

    He would pull the sink up and throw it thru the window and run into the studio if Jay-Z says ok to Watch the Throne 2. ?

  • Scromes1212

    All facts

  • Coy little wink

    He can be anytime he choses...

  • Scromes1212

    Yep

  • Scromes1212

    That's why people love Ye, he sticks to what works for him. He knows he not built for that.

  • Coy little wink

    Really? This is news...

  • Renee26

    ? she ain't leaving just yet

  • Wreckognize Game

    She should've defended that TMZ interview when it happened not after it died down to promote that tired show on E.

  • Whirl

    Kanye was in fact the first during that time who did not promote violence and illegal drugs in his rap. JayZ did. Remember Foxy Brown’s video “Ain’t No Niggtmrum Like The One I Got”. Kanye was swimming against the tide during that era. We can make an argument for this or that but it’s the simple and plain truth.

  • Whirl

    I remember that era very well and you are on point

  • RespectSelf

    The Kanye hate is too much for me lol.....

  • Wreckognize Game

    Maybe the subliminal shots on his songs go over some people heads. If that doesn't work just get on social media and rant.

  • Whirl

    I was so happy when Kanye came out. Finally a black male rapper who didn’t preach harming other black males in his music. I remember very well the NWA days. People can call him a punk or whatever but I like him squarely in the nitche that he pioneered.

  • Scromes1212

    Your comment is exactly the reason I don't get the Kanye hate smh he was one of the VERY few people not rapping about negative stereotypes and violence and people now want to praise the rappers that spent dam near there entire career rapping about selling drugs, gangs, bit*hes etc.

  • Coy little wink

    Lololol all he does now is rant. Where is the music?

  • Whirl

    True. So sad Kanye idolizes JayZ in that way rather than believing in himself as an icon if that is what he aspires to be- a Michael Jackson like icon.

  • Wreckognize Game

    We will find out when KKW releases the recorded conversation.

  • Whirl

    They weren’t truly rap in any real pure sense

  • RespectSelf

    I think they are saying that because Drake said that Kanye was a big inspiration for him....

  • Scromes1212

    So your mad she didn't defend him for the tmz interview but now your mad cause she did defend him? Lol maybe she didn't agree with what he said during the tmz interview *shrugs* but does it really matter lol people who don't like her won't like what she does or says either way

  • Coy little wink

    He's a sellout on many different levels...

  • Wreckognize Game

    I just wish he could have real conversations with people and not put it on social media. That is manipulation because you didn't get what you want so you blast it. Not cool.

  • SpiceGirl

    IMHO....that was a MITCH move to go to "Twitter" and rant...and here comes ole Kimmy...*insert eye roll* Also IMHO......KimYe is feeling themselves.......SOMEBODY had to pave the way...no need to toot your own damn horn tho...js

  • RespectSelf

    Drake said it years ago.... They just reminding him.

  • Whirl

    Imma tell you why I like Kim and Kris. I was so use to men using women to gain a leg up and it was depressing. When the Ray J tape came out I figured it was a rap for Kim. Rather than hang her head in shame Kris Jenner took lemons and juiced it into lemonade. I could never be mad at her for flipping the game on its head. That doesn’t mean I enjoy all the naked-like pics every other day. But that Kardashian fam got mad game. lol

  • Wreckognize Game

    I'm not mad. That's where you are wrong about my statement. But carry on. I'm done.

  • Whirl

    Oh wow didn’t know that

  • Connie

    Dang! even the babies?

  • RespectSelf

    Most artist are.....

  • Arama

    Changing the world in what way? Kanye is inconsequential to the vast majority of the world’s population. Kim is a narcissist of the highest order. She surely exaggerates her and Kanye’s existence.

  • Tiffany Miller

    Is this Kanye under a different name? Asking for a friend. They will soon reconcile. Its only a matter of time before all of this blows over. They are bored millionaires with nothing better to do while we are at work... worried bout why they don't like each other. I could agree with the paving under this one condition: BACK IN THE BACK BACK DAY(90's), these would be backpack rappers. UNDERUNDERGROUND

  • Scromes1212

    That's the point lol he made backpack rappers mainstream.

  • Wreckognize Game

    There's a post on TSR showing Kanye running from a reporter outside TMZ. I'm not certain if that is from today but I really hope not.

  • Whirl

    I admittedly has a mental order. I would think folks would take stock of the situation and recognize he was doing what many bipolar people do when in a manic state.

  • Coffee1st

    I have no feelings for Kim nor her husband.
    But i can't be mad for her defending him. That's what married ppl do, have each others backs.
    These celeb...and presidential... Twitter tantrums are silly and annoying though.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Coffee1st

    No. You need a lesson in hip hop. Ye sacrificed nothing to do what he did. It was up and running well before Ye. Meaning accepted by society and paying its artists well.
    How old are you?

  • Scromes1212

    What artist as big as Ye was like him before him? People want to discredit people cause they disagree with him. Ye took a chance and decided to be himself and it worked. He became the biggest artist in hiphop just being himself.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Just throw the whole post away...sick of this family and the blacks folks that crave them.

  • Joy King

    Inspiration and paving the way are two completely different things. Drake has been the #1 rapper for a few years now and it has literally destroyed Kanye’s ego and what little self esteem he had left. He really believed all that ranting about being a musical genius would make the masses believe him. But us with common sense, knows it’s all lies. It’s called narcissism.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I get what you are saying. I just want someone to help him. People will avoid him if he is gonna blast everything on social media. You want to check on him but then you don't know how. It's just sad.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile.... Kim needs to get out more if she thinks Kanye is an intelligent person???

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Kris is a master of deception ?

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Only thing I like bout Kanye are his shoes. Other than that I'm gone!

  • Whirl

    Exactly. One would need to go all the way back to the class before Kanye’s era- KRS One and Flavs Flave with ‘Don’t Believe The Hype’ or Queen Latifah. When Kanye came out gangster rap ruled. He was indeed swimming against the tide.

  • Joy King

    Kanye used to be more of an entertainer than rapper. But when I went to see the Watch The Throne tour, Jay Z destroyed Kanye without even trying. Jay was up there in a black cap, jeans and T-shirt and dominated the stage like a superstar. Kanye, seemed shook. Without all the special effects, Kanye is basically a beat maker.

  • Karen Brady

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Your whole comment.

  • Decked Out

    EXCELLENT Come Back.

  • Brown & Proud

    Wow Kanye is beyond delusional. He made some good beats in his time but hes no legend. Hes no RZA, Pete Rock or even Alchemist. I alllllmost feel sorry for him, I guess its more that I pity the fool. Hes so lost there's no coming back at this point. Poor lil guy lmao!

  • Whirl

    It is difficult especially since it just became okay to openly speak on mental disorders. Good point.

  • Solstice

    I politely disagree. Idk, maybe I was under a rock but there many a rappers/ lyricists in the 90’s - early 2000’s that were not promoting illegal drugs and violence. Examples: A Tribe Called Quest, Talib Kweli/Blackstar and Common. Matter fact Common’s best album IMO is the Be album produced by Kanye. There were some great rappers out in the 90s that we’re not promoting sex drugs and violence. I think folks just weren’t listening…

  • Brown & Proud

    I upvoted but I must say we should send Drake with them back to Canada.....

  • Whirl

    For me a person is considered a great one if I can still rock your music 10 or 15 years later. I can still rock “Through The Fire”. BUT, no doubt you are on point with Pete Rock and CL Smooth among others. I can still rock “Reminisce” to this day. It’s still relevant.

  • Nikki

    I wish Drake had a wife and she read Kim K for filth.
    Kanye needs to take his meds and stfu.

  • Coffee1st

    You can't be serious.
    And you read way too much into my comment. I didn't discredit Kanye at all. I just didn't give him credit for paving the way for Drake.
    Youre young...or grossly ignorant of HH history. And that's cool, but I'm really not going to explain it to you neither.
    Have a good weekend.

  • Rahab

    These fools are omnipotent in their own eyes!!! Curtis Blow paved the way for allayall.

  • Whirl

    Ummmmmm I get your point BUT I’m gonna have to say Kanye was on another level. His sales at that time speaks for itself. Don’t get me wrong I feel where you coming from. Tribe called quest was from the class before Kanye but still managed to put out awesome music during Kanye’s rise. But remember Q Tip went solo so it’s hard to box them in. But without a doubt those artists are up there. The one exception is Common. But again his record sales weren’t on par with Kanye’s.

  • Brown & Proud
  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Went form a post even in death with class to azzes....

  • EMILY POST

    Kanye broke down doors for non blacks to so openly swag jack urban black culture and culture vulturing at an alarming shameless rate? Nigga in Paris selling out like no other! Exploiting his culture for White applause.
    He put all his pride and dignity into getting into swirly relationships and getting used in front of the world ! He is the blueprint!

  • Scromes1212

    Smh so just give an opinion with no evidence lol ok. Like I said, without Ye it would be no drake. He is his idol, in his own words.

  • Whirl

    But didn’t Drake more or less say that very same thing himself?

  • Coffee1st

    So if krs1, pe and latifah was era before ye...and when ye came out gangster rap ruled...are you saying krs1, pe and QL is gangster??????

  • Wreckognize Game

    I got you?

  • Solstice

    ?????

  • Whirl

    Follow me- they were from the class prior to Kanye. When Kanye took off gangsta rap rulled. No longer were the says of “Don’t Believe The Hype”. The only rap during that time that was fashionable was gangsta rap. It’s true. He came up in a time right on the heels of Biggie and Pac. It’s only right to give credit where credit is due even if you don’t like him. I can literally tell you exactly where I was the first time I heard “Through The Fire”.

  • Brown & Proud

    All their albums are amazing.. Main ingredient is still one of my all time favorite albums ever! Pete is a mastermind with the beats.. A true soul brotha #1. I do like Ye's 1st album he had a few really dope songs on there like that song with freeway and mos that they performed on Chappelle show.. 2 words. He just isnt a legend like he thinks he is. He doesnt realize the public labels you legendary, you cant crown yourself.. Thats extremely wack and it revolkes ever having the legendary status in the future. Ye should just remain silent and make good music.. Show and prove. Hes too far gone at this point. Personally, he lost all credibility as a rapper and all around artist when he started dating Kum dumpster. I was like damn Ye say it aint true, then he married the hoe bag. I was forever done.

  • Solstice

    I’m not knocking Kanye skill or sales ?. I think him saying he “paved the way” is just a stretch. He wasn’t doing something that wasn’t already being done. ?

  • Brown & Proud

    This is true and he wasnt even compensated as he should have been. All these new rappers dont deserve the millions they get. It should go to Whodini, Curtis, EB n Rakim, etc.

  • jujumanji

    I need Kim to stfu and stay out of menfolk business. And her saying Kanye is the most brilliant person she knows ain't saying much....?

  • Whirl

    I feel you. I guess it semantics. From a different point of view I suppose some might point to other legendaries as paving the way. I guess I judge a person artistry within the frame of reference from which they rise. That takes nothing away though from other all time greats like https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_rlUQsC8ECk

  • jujumanji

    You dont make excuses for people with mental illness and feed into their delusions. You get them help and make sure they are on a steady regimen.

  • Solstice
  • Brown & Proud

    Yea but its different times. You cant bring up sales because the 90s were a different time. Those real GOOD talented artists werent properly compensated like these overrated, untalented so called rappers are today. Ye is not groundbreaking. I'm a huge music connoisseur, and Kanye has never been legendary like so many other hip hop artists are. He made good beats when he was wit Rocafella and does collabs, but he is quite lackluster. His music has gone downhill since his first album. A real legend gets better with time. Or at least is consistent. He needs to take this energy he puts into his rants and social media frenzys and channel it in to his music. Hes doing it all wrong. IMO Blackstar and ATCQ are living legends they made timeless music that never gets old. I just went to see Blackstar at red rocks and they were absolutely amazing live. I cant say I'd ever pay to see Ye and even if I got free tix, id probably sell em or forget to go. He doesnt have a catalogue good enough for me to sit thru a concert.

  • HotInCleveland

    Lock this fool up in the crazy house and throw away they key. I’m sick and tired of this coon and his whore wife.

  • Solstice

    Just stated the same up above. But I too am huge ATCQ and Blackstar/Talib Kweli fan. I could be biased ??????

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    You're supposed to think highly of yourself but this fewl just goes overboard.

  • Scromes1212

    Someone threatened her family smh what excuse is she making by defending her family?

  • Brown & Proud

    Drake should have never had a chance sorry to say. He's not hip hop.. Nigga is corny... So Ye and Drake can have ea other and fade into obscurity. Oh and remind em to take the kum dumpster family with them. ???

  • Whirl

    Well let’s look at it from within a different prism- Luther Vandross is without a doubt legendary. A valid argument could be made that his earlier works where the greatest yet he’s still a legend.

  • Scromes1212

    Gets better with time? Lol you can't be serious, when the last time you heard a Rahkim album? Did you hear Public Enemy last album? Y'all will make up any excuse to hate on Ye music lol. Ridiculous

  • Scromes1212

    You can make that argument with dam near every legend over the past 30 years that didn't die when they were young. This is all just Kanye hate lol

  • Brown & Proud

    True but that music Luther made was SO good it cemented his legendary status.. And he has an enormous catalogue. He has more than 3 albums worth of amazing music so therefore his concerts were amazing. Kanye doesnt have an album worth of good songs imo. Honestly I like about 5 maaaybe 6 songs of Ye. He could be an opener for Pete Rock and CL and id go .. But id be going for PR and CL. Like I might get there late half way thru his set.

  • Scromes1212

    Your comment is the exact problem smh it's not about who is talented or anything else. It's just about people not liking them cause they corny or people not liking Ye wife for whatever reason smh

  • Brown & Proud

    I'm sorry Kanye but your music sucks.. Thats all im saying. Not enough hits to be classified legendary. Hes aiight. Like I said his 1st album had a couple good tracks. Thats about it.

  • Scromes1212

    The irony is the last good beat PR made was on Ye album smh

  • Brown & Proud

    But.. But.. Drake IS corny and hes not hip hop .. Lets be real Drake is hip POP. Not my style.

  • Scromes1212

    More grammys then any hip hop artist EVER( I think him and Jay tied) but he suck lol ok

  • Scromes1212

    Jays highest grossing concerts are with his wife and Ye smh

  • Whirl

    Welll you make a good point. I will give you that. Back then if you bought a record you could expect to buy a quality album in its entirety.

  • AListDiva29

    Kimmode is doing the worst possible thing for her husband by feeding into his delusions! I have a family member with bi polar disorder, so I know he sounds like he's about to be in the throws of a manic episode. She needs to get him into a hospital and away from her children before he possibly hurts somebody or himself!

  • AListDiva29

    It says a lot about the company u keep when Kanye is the most brilliant person u know haha

  • AListDiva29
  • Soon2BWife

    I said something outta nothing. Master P had some semblance if talent. Also, name his children? Lil Romeo is the only one we know and he has like 4. Lil Romeo doesn’t have as much money or clout as the K kids. You’re comparing apples to oranges.

  • ThisIsWhat43LooksLike

    Slaps my knee ??

  • Brown & Proud

    Grammys are meaningless tho they give those away to anyone that pays for them now a days. The artists that deserve an award never usually get them so that arguement is invalid. You must think Beyonce is better than Erykah Badu musically ... Thats comparing pop to soul. Kanye and Drake are the pop ? Lets just agree to disagree and keep it movin. As you see from my pic.. I like real hip hop (Wutang, Jedi Minds, Cormega, Mobb Deep, Talib, Chino XL, AOTP, ATCQ, etc) Ye and Drake arent on my radar.

  • EMILY POST

    Nah they are Romas .... looking for a come up!

    Someone's settin up Ye real nice I see

  • Kbellaluvvs

    Its funny how they trying to make Drake out to be this gangsta when just a few years ago he was getting clowned from certain celebs for allegedly letting someone pee on him and allegedly letting Puff Daddy slap him....

  • SpiceGirl

    Yessssss

  • Scromes1212

    More then half the people you named are on Ye albums (more then once) lol the irony

  • Brown & Proud

    They helped make his music a lil better.. Kanye alone is pretty garbage now a days. No replay-ability. Thats what I look for in quality music.

  • Brown & Proud

    Well you obviously do not follow P- are- uh so you are dismissed. Pete stays making quality beats for so many great and not so great artists.

  • Brown & Proud

    This is true

  • Scromes1212

    I'm sure they are quality lol it's PR. But the last great one was on Ye album. Facts

  • Coy little wink

    Lmao!

  • Scromes1212

    Lol ok

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Lol he's a mess

  • Solstice

    Tribe indeed started in the 80’s but they were still dropping records up until 1996. The Anthology Album which was a compilation of their hits, I believe, was released 1999. They still had mad influence in the 90’s. Blackstar/Talib Kweli was dropping heat then too. And Common Sense, now Common was doing it as well. Guru was fire in the late 90’s as well. I am sure there are others but the artists I listed were still spitting mid-late 90’s. And it wasn’t promoting violence, sex and drugs. ?

  • missmiami305

    #Dead at the thought of Drake threatening someone lol. Anyway, Kum fugged dude. Idc what nobody says. She fugged him or gave him head. Drake has something on them both.

  • Dasright

    I, too, have a family member with manic depression. One of her first signs of a breakdown is always her rapid-fire Facebook posts. We got her help and she's current doing good. Kanye seems like he's in the throes of it currently. It's sad, really.

  • pure_rachet

    Kanye is a b1tch.

  • AListDiva29

    Yes, its sad his wife fuels the fire instead of trying to help. I'm glad she's doing well again! :)

  • MythCalledLove

    That SUCCUBUS better know her place. Hit dog always holla. Kanye should tell her to go play in her makeup. Makes him look week. Like Drake is a real threat. We know Kanye has become "touched" Kim is doing this in hopes it will give her some points with Kanye. He probably was like "I don't need you to speak for me" Sh!t like this is why we ended up in therapy.

  • AListDiva29

    Yep u are right! The blind item site Crazy Days and Nights #9 item today is about a rapper going ape sh*t over another rapper sending him pics he has of his wife in various stages of "undress" so we know who that must be! And WTF is he mad for literally everyone and their grandmamma has seen his wife naked at this point in time!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Cannot WAIT for that!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Not the first. Slum Village. Pharaoh Munch. Common Sense. J Dilla. Mos Def. That’s just late 90s. There’s a long list of socially conscious rappers.

    I don’t credit him for being the first, however, his style of music and production absolutely make him an important figure in hip hop.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Bingo LOL.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    ALL OF THIS ??

  • morenYAHdelsur

    “How old are you?”

    LMBO that’s my question too!

  • jujumanji

    If anyone truly believes Drake threatened these people then they have the same issues Kanye has and need the same medication. Ijs.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That’s awesome and that’s what we loved about him.

    He’s not the first to “be himself” though.

  • SweetTEE

    Kanye's hair up top looks like a herp outbreak. like why?

  • Floriduhh Evans

    While I respect Ye for all he has done to influence the game. He’s looking like a whole b**ch right now. Your family is threatened so you go to Twitter? And then your wife comes out to speak for you...come on Ye you looking like a real duck ?

  • Harley

    Inspiration and paving the way are two different things! Plus Kanye was a whole different artist years ago than he is now! His college drop out days were the shyt! Him now not so much.

  • Harley

    But the sound is what people are referencing. Kanye didn’t create it he was inspired by others

  • Harley

    He was not the first artist who did not promote violence. Maybe in his era but there is a whole generation before him like public enemy who was pro black power and education

  • Harley

    Naw I disagree and that does not make me delusional. LL Cool J, Will Smith and Public Enemy were all before Kanye and the “gangster” and “crunk” eras

  • missmiami305

    Kum said and continues to say a bunch of nothing. Delusional!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Idk wtf Kanye is talking about ?????

  • RespectSelf

    Well Kanye wasn't a street dude rapping about being in the streets and selling drugs.... So I would think that he did help pave the way for a rapper like Drake to get into the industry. Folks just don't like Kanye anymore... doesn't take away what he has done and who he's "pave the way" for.

  • missmiami305

    let me head on over. haven't frequented there in a bit.

  • Whirl

    Yeah, I absolutely agree with that statement. Still, it’s difficult to make the argument that Kanye didn’t make nerdy rappers relevant at a time when gangster rap dominated. It’s simply the truth.

  • RespectSelf

    lol Just say you don't like Kanye.... Drake has been in the game for a minute now... so the Kanye that "paved the way" for him was the Kanye that folks still liked lol. This conversation 10 years ago would be different. He could make that statement and folks wouldn't act like he talking out the side of his neck. lol

  • Whirl

    I agree. Perhaps I’m not communicating my point very well. It’s important to underscore the fact that he went out on a limb by dedicating himself to non hardcore rap at a time when gangster rap dominated the scene. We can’t rewrite history. It’s simply the truth.

  • Whirl

    I agree with you. I think I’m not explaining myself very well. College Drop Out dropped in 2004. The point that I’m delineating here is Kanye came along at a different time.

  • Whirl

    So are we going to pretend “Nigrums In Paris” wasn’t hot?

  • Harley

    Naw it has nothing to do with my feelings towards Kanye at the moment. There are numerous artist who paved the way for Drake and had a different sound. Pharrell is a producer and artist and NERD had a totally different vibe than others in the game. He changed the game and the sound of hip hop as well . Run DMC even did a rock song so I don’t agree with you that’s all......

  • Harley

    But Drake isn’t a “nerdy” rapper ?????

    wellllllll I’m talkng Drake circa 2007. Not the new version that bends towards the gangster image.

  • Scromes1212

    Being before someone doesn't mean a person didn't pave the way for the peopl after him. I think peopl are paved the way confused with being the first.

    Touché.

    His swag was college, booksacks, Polos, and pastels LOL. I agree and acknowledge his accomplishments. He’s just arrogant af (as he’s always been) and so is his wife ??????

  • Harley

    I’m confused with your grammar ?

  • Harley

    And I’m talking Kanye isn’t the only artist to go outside the box! Will Smith did that way before Kanye was thought of

  • Whirl

    But Will Smith was like two classes before Kanye. It was normal to be a socially conscious rapper when Will was hot. In comparison Kanye’s rise came about at a time when good guy rappers were shut out the industry by and large.There were few exceptions during that time and the few who were under the same genre did not rise to Kanye’s level of success. It’s simply the truth. We can’t just discredit Kanye for being annoying circa 2018. He was swimming against the tide. Will Smith wasn’t. That takes guts.

  • Overpower Radio

    Is the threat to the family a subliminal "checks over stripes" diss ..or whatever diss against the Yeezy's ..and Kanye considering that an attempt to take food out of his kid's mouth? This is the dumbest beef. Kanye's allegedly mad Drake sent a subliminal shot on Travis' record, saying Travis should have allowed it, which is the same thing Drake was saying about Kanye's relationship with Pusha T - that the diss shouldn't have happened. SMH. The game is a tabloid, fake shit being stirred up by the real people involved

  • Whirl

    At the end of the day Drake could never be Kanye. Just like Kobe said he could never be Michael Jordan because Jordan came first. And when you break down the dna Drake isn’t on the same playing field as Kanye. No matter how arrogant he is, he is in fact a musical genius. His sense for creating beats are hard to rival. His name is on the production of countless acts even before the time he came into his own as a rapper. At the end of the day Drake is one dimensional. He’s a rapper. To the best of my knowledge he hasn’t created a name for himself in the industry beyond that. Drake is a good actor yes. But that’s acting not making music. Just my two cents as a rap/r&b loyal fan.

  • lovelygamour

    how did kanye break down the doors for drake? by using ghostwriters. by rapping about the women in their lives. kanye is more a remixer. i dont see him paving the way for anyone. what he did has been done before. if anything he took it old school. rappers rapping over established beats.

    i believe that kanye saw that drake was going the colin kaepernick route, got jealous or wanted to to bring him in the club, so he figured he would make kim look like the norm by pointing out drake made the americans get abortions while having a kid with a horrible dancing french pornstar that has been around every block.

  • lovelygamour

    kylie and kendall was over there really tough. trying to get chose. and then the rest started popping up.

  • lovelygamour

    i think she was his ghostwriter. his songs was about different topics but after his mom passed they morphed into about his women.

  • lovelygamour

    i left kanye alone when he first started dissing black women. like if he doesnt want me around i will leave. lol. same with chris brown.

  • lovelygamour

    they just forgetting everyone that was before kanye. i think biz markie was the first nerdy rapper but i am sure we can find one before him.

  • lovelygamour

    everyone forgets this. dame fought hard for kanye and a few more people put him on. he doesn't acknowledge any of them today. he befriend (or his mom) a few influential ny players and these people kept inviting him to things and vouching for him. he paid them back with invites but never press. he thanks people on the back end but these new people he feeding them from plates!

    however, he does seem pleased when dame gives him praise.

  • lovelygamour

    please drake probably wanted a beat and decided to butter mr west up.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Honestly, does anyone believe kimkow wrote that tweet?

  • XoXo

    The kartrashians sure do a number on their men. Just look at his pic. His eyes. He looks lost. Lost soul.

  • Whirl

    All I know is “All Falls Down” is just as relevant today as it was in early 2000. Too boot- I can vibe off the lyrics with out having to dicipher a lot of mumbling like we hear in a lot of today’s music. We will see if Drake will be able to say the same thing about his early music ten years from now. In order to be considered one of the greatest an artists music has to stand the test of time. No words required. It speaks for itself. Kanye is arrogant and annoying but that doesn’t discredit what he has accomplished. We can’t just rewrite history because a person is annoying.

  • Sunshine ///

    They don't seem to have much of a hold on people like they used to. Her threats are meaningless. Kanye paved the way just like Jay paved the way for Kanye. Their antics only work on people like Blac Chyna who needs steady income. I don't care what R. Kelly and Kanye brought to the game. It's what they do on their personal time that is a turn off. Musical genius but sick in the head and causes pain and hurt verbally and/or physically. Neither one feels any remorse. They both can rest in hell thoughtless, ego inflated ass holes.

  • Harley

    I DONT AGREE WITH YOU! that’s is ????? I believe there have been many other artists who had the same impact. Which is why I mentioned Pharrell who was an entertainer AND a producer. He had a rocker and skater vibe and was out at the same time as Kanye. No one is discrediting Kanye and his success but there were other artists who paved the way As well.

  • Kimocha

    I see money and drugs got both Kanye and Kim feeling themselves.... Smdh

  • Tailor Koko Milk
