During Friday’s live performance, The Jimmy Cooks artist told a fan in the audience: “You look good, even though you got those Yeezys on, you still look good.”
The Passionfruit rapper’s backhanded fan compliment and not-so-subtle shade toward Kanye were discussed and debated on a Reddit post titled: “Drake had a slight diss towards Kanye and Yeezy at the show last night.”
One person commented: “S**t…u know Drake got 100 different pairs of YZY in his closet.”
They continued: “Ye has a mental illness and is completely unstable at times as a result. He is a wildcard, a jackass, and a genius. I don’t like a lot of celebrities, but great art is great art.
“But [what’s] Drake’s excuse tho lol. Dude’s Shady af. Just look at how he did Makonnen, stole his song and then held him hostage to his label. That’s just the tip of the doucheberg for Drake. Does he have any real friends even? Besides guys he pays?”
The writer concluded: “I still like both their music, regardless. Until they do something genuinely terrible, I will continue listening to their music. But as of now, all they’ve really done [is] just spout off dumb/ignorant s**t via Twitter or whatever.”
Another fan mentioned: “Last thing Ye mentioned Drake in was praising him calling the greatest rapper, then the white lives matter and anti-semitic stuff happened and maybe soured Drake.
“I wouldn’t even call this a diss, honestly just a harmless jab, Drake is with Nike so why would he praise a competitor brand?”
“A couple of y’all are overreacting, this was a funny jab because he’s a Nike entity,” added a third.
While a fourth commenter reasoned: “They are frienemies. They’ll never be able to fully get over their beef because it was very personal. But at this point, it’s relatively civil and they just take friendly shots.”
Back in April, Drake fans revealed they think the rapper dropped two clues that he’s in love with Kim Kardashian on his new song Search & Rescue.
The single featured a sample of Kim, 42, and her mother Kris Jenner, 67, speaking.
Fans are taking the use of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians sample, and the fact that Drake used a Kim look-a-like on the cover art for the new single, as proof that the Rich Flex rapper has romantic feelings for The Kardashians star.
On Twitter, one person wrote: “Drake just confess his love for Kim in this song or am I trippin?”
Another user tweeted: “Favourite Drake song that I’ve heard in a while and he’s confessing his love for Kim Kardashian.”
While a third person asked: “So is Drake and Kim dating now?”
Around one minute into the track, mom-of-four Kim is heard saying: “I didn’t come this far just to come this far and not be happy.”
“OK,” her mother Kris replies as Kim then says: “Remember that,” before repeating the quote.
Kim then admits: “Yep, I saw it on the internet,” as she giggles and Drake’s singing continues.
Not only did Drake sample the Skims founder, who was married to the Canadian rapper’s hip-hop nemesis Kanye, but the context of the conversation revolves around Kim deciding to divorce the father of her four children.
Drake’s lyrics include the words: “But deep down I think about you all day, mami,” and “I just wanna take you on a holiday, mami, Say what’s on your mind, I’m a call away, mami,” but it’s unclear if he is referring to Kim.
A FLING WITH KIM?
Rumors of a closeness between the former Degrassi star and Kim have been swirling for some time.
Drake reignited the buzz in 2021 when sources claimed he was ready to make a go at Kim following her split from Kanye.
A source told Heat magazine at the time: “Drake could never understand what Kim saw in Kanye – he was saying for years how he wasn’t the right guy for Kim and it would all end in tears.
“He was surprised it took her so long to realize, and started messaging her the moment it became clear that the divorce was inevitable.
“He’s ready to see her whenever she says the word, basically, and he’s confident that will happen fairly soon.”
Kim officially filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021 after months of speculation that their seven-year marriage was over.
Around the same time those reports surfaced, Drake’s fans speculated that he dropped a hint about sleeping with Kim behind Kanye’s back.
In the song Wants and Needs, he rapped: “Yeah, I probably go link to Yeezy I need me some Jesus. But as soon as I start confessin’ my sins, he wouldn’t believe us.”
It comes after the award-winning artist sparked rumors he slept with Kim back in 2018.
Drake then appeared to insinuate he’d slept with Kim on his track In My Feelings.
On the record, he rapped about having sex with a woman by the name of Kiki, which is Kim’s family nickname.
