Kanye West Calls Drake A Rap God

Kanye West quotes Drake during a radio interview, celebrates with the Young Money rapper following his concert in Toronto.

Thanks to Kanye West’s appearance at OVO Fest in August and recent comments he made in regards to fellow emcee Drake over the past week, it appears that any past issues the two artists may have had with one another have been fully resolved.

Before traveling up to Toronto for the final leg of his Yeezus tour, Kanye appeared on Chicago’s Power 92 to discuss a variety of topics and even referenced a line from Drake’s verse on Nicki Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life” while speaking on breaking boundaries.

"I need to be a poster child of what it means to break all boundaries,” said Kanye. “'Cause I look at the inside of this TV, I look at all this matrix we in. And I'm like, man, ain't none of this real. The only thing real is your family, your loved ones, the time that you have. Only luxury is time and the only thing promised is that you gonna die one day. So like Drizzy say, he said, 'Everybody dies but not everybody lives.' So we just gonna live this to the maximum, to the fullest."

In addition to quoting Drake during his radio interview last week, Ye referred to the Canadian wordsmith as a “rap God” during his Yeezus tour performance in Toronto and also thanked the Young Money rapper for attending last night’s (December 22) show.

“I want to thank the rap God Drake for coming out tonight,” said Kanye as he concluded his Toronto performance.

Following Kanye’s show in Toronto, which serves as one of the Yeezus tour’s last stops, both Drake and Ye were pictured together celebrating at a local club. In a handful of videos posted by clubgoers, Kanye can be seen rapping along to Drake’s “Headlines” and “Worst Behavior.”

The relationship between both Drake and Kanye, who directed the Toronto musician’s “Best I Ever Had” music video, gradually changed following the announcement of Kanye and Jay Z’s collaborative album, Watch The Throne.

In a 2011 interview with Tim Westwood, Drake commented on creating a joint album similar to Watch The Throne with Lil Wayne and included a vague mention of Jay and Kanye's album.

“We still got to do that album I heard two other guys are coming out with an album together, too,” said Drake. “There’s two other rappers are coming out with an album together. I don’t know where they got that idea but…I caught wind of it through the grapevine that there’s some other album with two guys rapping on it.”

Drake also dropped this subliminal Watch The Throne mention on DJ Khaled’s “I’m On One” as he rapped, "I'm just feeling like the throne is for the taking, watch me take it."

Video from Kanye West's interview with Power 92's DJ Pharris and a clip from his Toronto Yeezus tour stop can be found below (via Complex and HotNewHipHop).

    "i would say this to these guys in person because they are acting like bitches what is drake gonna do hit me with a pillow?" It's hilarious how you pretend tough guys assume Drake is soft. Cause he's from Canada? Makes smoother music than most rappers? Isn't afraid to tell the media how he feels? His music ain't hurting nobody. Move on with the hate.

    So damn. He goes from a wheel chair (acting) to a hip hop god (what is hip hop nowadays) and we should listen to what left over lover kanye says? He is so wack I just can't believe it. Drake is party - kool but he will never be a god of nada, at least not to me.

    The only reason Mr. West is saying this is because of Eminem's song. Remember watch the throne?

    So, Kayne & Drake are dating now? I guess I'm cool with that, I liked it more when Drake & Manziel were together but Future ruined that. This is still a very powerful couple though, I wonder how they will work this with Kanye being married, the Kardashians are going to milk the shit out of this, good for Ye to finally come out though. Drake paved the way for homosexual artists & now Ye is taking the lead, good on both of them.

    Drake's song writing skills are unmatched in the game right now. K Dot is nothing compared to Drake, so all you K Dot dick riders fall back. Drake gave Kendrick shine on his album letting him spit a verse to get known. Drake gave Kendrick a spot on his tour, Kendrick's real first tour. Drake jumped on Kendrick's album and gave him his 2nd single that Kendrick used for radio play. Kendrick still can't get an arena tour, Kanye has his as an opening act. Kanye doesn't even do any music with him, he much rather bring out Drake who has a more substantial catalog. Fast facts, Drake's body of work bodies Kendrick. More and better mixtapes. More and better studio albums. More and better hooks. More and better features. QED, T.O. running hiphop now.

    Kanye west is a nut case and Drake, as well as himself are no where near "gods"! In the bible, they built gold calf and false idols out of gold bronze and other materials, just like the music industry built their images which is fake. That's why they are idols. False! God is spirit and not mortal. Read your bible people and don't be taken by this foolishness. Plus look at the way they act. Who wants to serve a god that acts a damn fool??? Yeah!

    • ribbon

      keep on having a big mouth, GOD IS NOT MOCKED!!!!!

    • Big Mouth

      ~God is not MOCKED, surely you shall reap what you sow! Galatians 6:8~ This is why Kanye can't make it in the fashion world. God, yeesus will never be. It's so sad that he don't even know why, running around like a cry baby! Kanye, read ya bible, or do you have one? Now that's the true question. Go sit down and spend some of that money that you've made. You can't take it with you unless you have a age in your casket that only you know the code. But hey, man made so man can open it after you're go so really, you can't take it with you, yeesus. We laugh at nut cases like this.

  • Isthis a Joke?

    Drake would have to be an actual RAPPER to even qualify for such a title and since he is just a pop star same as miley cyrus or justin beiber he cannot hold the title of Rap God ever. P.S. How is kanye allowed to bestow such a title when he couldnt be further himself everyone go do yourself a favor and watch his freestyle at the end of his interview with Sway and you'll see how shitty kanye is.

    Drake reminds me of those kids you grow up that are rich, or well off troublemakers. Like they'll deal drugs, or get in trouble and show it off to look cool. They don't deal because they need the money or get in trouble because they have a dysfunctional home life. They think they're hard because they do these things. What they don't realize is they're not. Being hard comes from hardship and living day to day in a rough, and dangerous environment. Drake can never truly be hard, but he has had brushes with it because he chose to surround himself with hard people. Around the time he blew up in 2008-2009, he was robbed at gun point in Toronto. He lost four stacks and chain he got from Lil' Wayne. He said a female companion set him up. People in the industry, whom I know, told me he was scared shit-less after that incident. They say he became paranoid after that time. Like a ho from Maury, all these people from the hood he thought he was cool with saw him as a meal ticket or an easy mark to extract resources from. In my personal experiences from living in the hood, I've seen rich white boys and kids from good families get screwed over by charismatic thugs. One guy I know (Let's call him Perry) managed to borrow 4 G's for a car from a white guy with a $500,000 trust fund. Perry also convinced a Guyanese kid to spend thousands on a month-long cocaine bender, and put it on his AMEX. When you're successful like Drake, people will hate. Haters aren't imaginary villains rappers create to bloat their egos. Haters are real people that resent Drake for now having his fame and fortune. Even people that come from the hood have the same problem. When Tracy Morgan got his first big check, he moved his family and parents out of their bronx apartment during the middle of the night into a gated community. So Drake does have a reason for having no new friends.

    Let's recognize a basic reality. When black men like Kanye sing about gold diggers, they really mean black women. However, they view black women through a different lens than they view white-appearing women, who get the benefit of a "halo effect." Yet, the striking thing is that there has been countless evidence that white women are just as gold digging as these men imagine black women to be, but that doesn't stop them from chasing after their kryptonite, the almighty white p-tang. As for Kim's sluttiness, something tells me that Kanye would not have been interested in marrying a black woman who was as much as a slut.

      Since when did niggas commenting on a hip hop site get a degree in psychology and sociology? kill that whack ass noise white girls just tend to be more open minded, whereas us niggas hate to see another nigga do better or be different but white ppl can wear/dress/act how they want without gettn called gay or whatever.

    • Chuck Niddy

      All this talk of if you're white you're like this and if you're black you're like that is bullshit, and y'all feed into. I'm a white dude, got a black gf, she isn't doing it because she can't find a black dude, and I'm not with her because I wan't a black girl, we are together because we like each other. Y'all should grow up.

    • Big Mouth

      That's the gift from the white woman!

    • Big Mouth

      Ok, I did a survey of black women and how they feel about the black man dating white women. Not all black men date white women it's only the handful that you see on tv, and as you know what say about tv, it's not reality. Black men that date white women dare them because the sisters don't want them and they can only relate to white women. Let's use kanye for example, see sisters know that it's just something not right about this man, wearing women clothing, carrying purses, in competition with her on hair, make-up, in her closet trying to put on her skinny jeans. Now white women would think this is cute and not say nothing and later on down the line, get caught up or catch this man in bed with another man, but a sister is going to check that at the gate, and save herself the embarrassment and that possibility of catching something that can't be cured. So, the sisters don't care if the go astray. Look at the image of kayne, Lamar, Kobe, tiger woods, Charles Barkley, OJ, yeah, them white women!

    American men are pretty pitiful. This is also the most beta, blue pill nation of blind followers the world has ever known. This is the land of wannabe thugs, government freeloaders, beta supplicators, pedestalizing chumps, complainers, victims and seekers of the easy way out. Here in America, if a girl is eating a piece of cake men will use it as an opportunity to express their interest in her. We encourage women to remain fat by liking all of their facebook photos and overloading them with messages online. We encourage women to maintain their bad behavior by dishing out no punishment. We have allowed women to walk all over us!!!!!!!!!!

    "I dont know where they got that idea butI caught wind of it through the grapevine that theres some other album with two guys rapping on it." Where they got that idea? Was the Drake the first person to come up with the idea of two guys rapping on an album? Successful rappers have been collaborating on joint albums for a while now. Drake, you're trying to appear edgy by coming out with this shit, but please don't bother. Go and have a pout somewhere...

    Wow.... Is this a joke or something? FIRST Drake ain't a Rapper, and calling him a Hip Hop artist is too much. If there was a category caled Swag i would put all the YMCMB artist in it (Not Hating just giving my thought, cuz i like drake's music) And don't gimmie BS saying ''Nothing was the Same'' was the Album of the year cuz for me Eminem's comeback amde more impact then Drake's album, hell even Yeezus did more impact and it sucked when there's only 2 or 3 songs good there. If there's a Rap God is the one who invented who let this category grow up. Sucks that is getting treatd like shit and everyone is a ''rapper'' now-a-days. Eminem is King. Now God come down on earth and choose a Rap God. Kanye stop tapping Kim's butt and open your eyes, cuz u been on some weird shit lately.

      Well i love Eminem won't denie that. I'm said and i quote ''for me Eminem's comeback had more impact than drake's album'' and so did Eminem's Album. So it's pointless calling Drake a Rap God.

    "The only thing real is your family, your loved ones, the time that you have" Overall, this comment makes Kanye look more down to earth than in recent interviews.Sway and Charlemagne did a good job with bait questions that paint him as selfish and materialistic. It was a smart move to work with Drake,which is half Jewish it fixes the comment about Jews. but,i agree Ye, their far more Jewish people in power with connections than blacks..which makes it harder to jump-start a business in a weak economy
