Drake was a guest on the latest episode of LeBron James’ HBO show The Shop, where he talked about a number of topics including his relationship with Pusha-T and Kanye West. The OVO boss also went into detail about how the beef between him and Pusha-T started and what role ’Ye played.
In various snippets of the episode posted to Twitter and YouTube, Drake is seen talking about how Kanye told him that he wanted to be a mentor to Drake and help him with his music. According to Drake, Kanye demanded that Drizzy be totally transparent with him in exchange, play his new music for him, and tell him when he would be dropping Scorpion.
Kanye apparently proceeds to invite him out to Wyoming under the pretense to work on Drake’s music but Drake claims he spent all his time working on Kanye’s music, even though ’Ye had assured him he wasn’t planning on dropping anything yet. In addition, Drake reveals he told Kanye about his son, played him “March 14th,” the song on which he is most open about his relationship with his kid, and told Kanye about the troubles he was having with the mother of his child.
Drake also says that the only line in “The Story of Adidon” that he felt was out of line was the Noah Shebib diss and otherwise thought that the song was “trash.” However, he did also admit that as a “chess move” it was brilliant. Drake also said that Pusha-T would get what’s coming to him for dissing Shebib, “someone is going to punch you in your face.”
The insinuation seems to be that Kanye had all of this information and used it against Drake in the Pusha-T beef. Drake also reveals that he had a response for “The Story of Adidon” but chose not to release it due to him saying some terrible things on the track and not wanting to “further [Pusha-T’s] reputation by responding.” Drake texted LeBron about the beef at the time, who gave him advice on whether or not to release the track.
