Over the weekend, Kanye West unleashed a series of tweets sparked by Drake’s request for a feature in light of their indirect rap beef. In an initial call for an apology and an subsequent truce, West said, “Still need that apology for mentioning the 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths. Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro, you sneak dissing on Trav [Travis Scott] records and texting Kris talking about how’s the family.”
“It’s all love bro, but don’t play with me,” he continued. “You stay too close to be playing all these industry games bro.”
Although West’s tweets resulted in a call from Drake, hours later, West’s revealed the call was all but peaceful.
“Drake called trying to threaten me,” he said, reigniting a 23-hour long Twitter rant. He then went on to accuse Drake of purposely attacking people with mental health issues, causing a rift between him and his brother-in-law, Travis, and triggering his mental illness.
While few came to the Chicago rapper’s defense, in regards to his mental health, others suggested taking his phone to stop the tweets. In fact, in a recent interview with Baller Alert, Lil Rel made a similar suggestion in light of the Chicagoan’s Twitter habits.
“I think people should take his cell phone away from him,” Rel said, adding, “I’m serious.”
As the interview continued, Rel shared his thoughts on the Cardi B and Offset drama, which erupted this weekend after a historical hijacked performance and a botched public apology. While many questioned the authenticity of the break-up, Rel believed it to be true but chalked it up to the effects of social media.
“I just think they put their relationship on Instagram, that’s kinda tough man,” he said, adding, “They’ll be aight,” when asked if he believed the two would eventually work it out.
Oh, and it was his birthday. Happy Birthday Lil Rel.
