Drake Leaks Kanye West’s Diss Track to Drizzy Featuring Andre 3000 – Listen
Early Saturday morning (Sept. 4), in celebration of the release of his new album, Certified Lover Boy, Drake was serving as DJ on Sound 42 radio show, the rapper's parternship with SiriusXM. During his set, Drizzy pulled off a villainous chess move by playing an unreleased Kanye West song featuring André 3000 and a closing interlude featuring DMX called “Life of the Party,” which was allegedly recorded for Yeezy’s Donda album.
On the song that appears to be a diss track to Drake, Kanye mentions the OVO Sound leader by name and details a text exchange between himself, fashion designer Virgil Abloh and Drizzy.
“I put Virgil and Drake on the same text/And it wasn’t about the matching Arc'teryx or Kid Cudi dress/Just told these grown men, 'Stop it with the funny shit'/I might hire the whole team from ACG/So don't text me like I'm Juanita JCV,” he raps.
Near the end of the song, ’Ye delivers a final warning shot to the Toronto rap star.
“Told Drake, 'Don't play with me on GD'/And he sent that message to everybody/So, if I hit you with a 'WYD'/You better hit me with, ‘Yes, sir, I'm writing everything you need’/I told you I was gonna take the summer back/So any of the cap, won't take none of that/Where my muthafuckin' red hat?” he spits. Stream the track at the bottom of this post.
Interestingly, Kanye’s cautionary verses to Drake are not what fans are excited about. It’s actually André 3000’s beautiful verse to his late mother, Sharon Benjamin Hodo. Throughout his portion of the song, Three Stacks is asking Kanye’s mother, Ms. Donda West, to deliver his thoughtful messages to his mom.
“Ms. Donda, if you see my mama, tell her I'm lost/You see, she'd always light a cigarette, we talk, I would cough/Exaggeratin' a little bit so she get the point/Tryna get her to stop smokin', I would leave and fire up a joint/’Til I quit, started back up again, 20 years later,” he rhymes.
On social media, fans are impressed by Andre's heartfelt and masterful storytelling about his mom.
"The way Andre 3000 tells a story should be studied by every rapper. The way he weaves through time, describes his acts, gives you multiple perspectives, and ties it up with meaning. His writing is masterful," tweeted one fan.
Meanwhile, it appears that Drake isn’t done taunting Kanye. Early this morning, Drizzy jumped on his Instagram page and posted a photo of himself with his back turned with the caption reading, “Waste Removal.”
