It looks like there might be trouble brewing between Drake and Kanye West and it’s all at the fault of one purple demon emoji.

On Wednesday, Kanye West passed by the 107.5 WGCI Morning Show in Chicago in which he spoke on a number of topics, including the beef between Drake and Pusha-T that popped off this summer. When questioned, West responded, “People be around your family and be in your house and this and that then, they get mad about a beat and send purple demon emojis.” He continued, “I don’t play like that, I don’t play in that place… It’s like, look, it ain’t no beef.”

He later added, “Don’t pull me into this conversation. I’m ‘Ye… I honestly don’t care that much, in all honesty.” Despite the G.O.O.D Music founder’s relatively neutral stance, Drake had some thoughts of his own on the matter and chimed in with his own 2 cents.

Not long after West’s interview made its rounds online, Drake posted a polaroid selfie on Instagram with “The Boy 666666666” written underneath. In the caption, the rapper simply puts a crying laughing emoji next to a purple demon emoji.
