Drake and Kanye West‘s feud has reached fever pitch. After reigniting their rivalry with a series of verbal jabs and social media taunts last month, Drake seemingly unloaded a fresh round of lyrical shots aimed at Kanye’s head on his new album Certified Lover Boy, which landed on Friday (September 3).
Just over halfway through the album, Drizzy appears to clap back at Kanye for exposing his home address on “7am On Bridle Path.” The song’s title is a reference to Drake’s Toronto address and is the latest in his long-running series of a.m./p.m. songs.
“Get that address to your driver, make it your destination/’Stead of just a post out of desperation,” he raps.
Elsewhere on the scorching song, Drake seemingly disses Kanye’s Yeezy fashion line before threatening violence against Mr. West if, like fellow G.O.O.D. Music rapper Pusha T, he talks about his three-year-old son Adonis.
“I could give a fuck about who designing your sneakers and tees/Have somebody put you on a Gildan, you play with my seed,” he spits.
Though he doesn’t name names, Drake also has a special mention for someone “over there in denial, we not neck and neck” and mocks “heroes fallin’ from grace in their older ages.”
“7am On Bridle Path” already has the internet goin’ nuts, with DJ Akademiks sharing Drake’s scathing lyrics on Instagram while asking, “Aye #drake why u violating #kanyewest like this?”
“7am On Bridle Path” arrives amidst a tense few weeks between Drake and Kanye West. On August 21, Drizzy called out Kanye on Trippie Redd’s “Betrayal” by rapping, “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know/Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go/Ye ain’t changin’ shit for me, it’s set in stone.”
In response, Ye declared war on Drake by sharing an ominous text thread featuring fellow OVO nemesis Pusha T. “I live for this,” he wrote in the group chat next to photo of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker character. “I’ve been fucked with by nerd ass jock n-ggas like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you.”
Kanye later posted a screenshot of Drake’s home address on Instagram, a move the OVO rapper laughed off.
The feud has also seen calculated pettiness such as Drake showing Instagram love to Soulja Boy — who currently has a bone to pick with Ye — and Kanye flooding Drake’s hometown of Toronto with Donda billboards.
Earlier this week, Kanye West’s manager, Abou “Bu” Thiam, suggested the Kanye vs. Drake beef could be squashed depending on Certified Lover Boy‘s lyrics. Needless to say, it doesn’t look like Bu will be burying that hatchet anytime soon.
Akademiks isn’t the only one in awe at “7am On Bridle Path.” Check out more of the internet’s reactions to Drake’s scathing Kanye diss song below.
