Kanye West has tweeted more than 120 times in the past 12 hours, as the simmering rivalry between the Chicago-born rapper and Canadian rapper Drake reignited.
And yes, it’s a long story.
The beef itself stems from Kanye West’s production involvement in Pusha T’s recent album in which the latter spits acid over Drake’s unannounced child with a former adult actress, and his newfound angry guy persona.
In Kanye’s tweetstorm, he tells Drake that he did not “tell Pusha about your son” and that he’s been “trying to meet with you for 6 months”.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Kanye later notes that “Drake just called” and was “trying to threaten” him and West’s family.
After this, Kanye then bombards Twitter with more than 100 posts in little under four hours.
If you want the quickest recap possible, here’s just a sample of the Kanye West timeline today.
