“@kanyewest WHY U CANT KEEP DRAKE OUT YO MOUTH BRA,” he wrote at the time. “IM GO SAY IT #stophatin #stophatin smh YOU SHOWING STR8 JEALOUSY N YOU AINT EVEN GOTTA DO THAT U RICH RICH NIGGA SMH.”
Now, Boosie is at it again. During a recent interview with VladTV, the 38-year-old Baton Rouge rapper doubled down on his sentiments and reminded viewers he still thinks Kanye is out of line when he speaks on the 6 God.
“Where’d I lie?” Boosie said. “I was gonna say it three weeks earlier about his tweet. I was like, is the world gonna keep on letting this dude just pick on this dude? Dude don’t say shit back, I’m like damn. The world talkin’ bout everything, what about him just keep saying this man’s name? And I didn’t like that. I feel like he was picking on dude.
“I done took niggas that been picked on and made ’em steppers and made them not to be played with. I don’t like that. Dude keep on fucking with dude, what is it? Somebody knows. It’s something. I don’t know, so I said it. I wasn’t trying to unlike Kanye West for it. I was just un-liking him for being a hater on Drake … he’s a Drake hater.”
Drake cosigned Boosie’s original comments by liking Akademiks’ post about it. Although he didn’t directly address the situation, his “like” spoke volumes.
Amid one of Kanye’s infamous Twitter sprees, the G.O.O.D. Music founder took aim at Drake on a few occasions. On September 14, he demanded a public apology from both Drake and J. Cole. While Ye didn’t provide any context for the tweet, it’s possible he was still salty about the Pusha T and Drake controversy that went down in 2018.

For an episode of HBO’s The Shop with LeBron James, Drake sat down with the NBA star and talked about the now-infamous Pusha T diss track “The Story Of Adidon” and revealed he felt tricked into telling Ye about his then-“secret son,” which was used against him in the track.
“He sold me on this whole speech, like, ‘I’m in a great place, I’m making money, I’m a father,” Drake said. “I wanna be Quincy Jones and help you, but in order to do that, you gotta be transparent with me and you gotta play me your music and tell me when you’re dropping, and I know you don’t like to do that.’ I was in the studio and I guess we all felt a genuine vibe from it.”
He added, “He just told me he wanted to give me beats, he said he wasn’t dropping till October, November, something like that. I went and spent the majority of the time working on his music, trying to cook up ideas for him. We left with ‘Lift Yourself’ and a pat on the back … I play him ‘March 14,’ I send him a picture of my son, I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother. We had a conversation … I wake up, and all of these dates are out, one by one by one.”
Ye ultimately apologized to Drake for the diss track, but the two have been seemingly engaged in a cold war ever since.
On September 18, Ye took another lightweight jab at Drake while going after major labels, tweeting in all caps, “WE’RE GONIG TO TRANSPARENTLY CHANGE EVERY ALBUM DEAL EVERY PUBLISHING DEAL EVERY MERCH DEAL EVERY TOURING DEAL EXCEPT FOR DRAKE’S DEALS. JUST KIDDING … I LOVE DRAKE TOO … ALL ARTIST MUST BE FREE.”
Boosie has clearly had enough. Watch his comments above.
