Speaking about Drake, he said: “You, like, hang around people and they come to your house and be around your family and this and that, and then they get mad about a beat and then send you purple demon emojis.”

Kanye then clarified: “It ain’t no beef... We all got love for Drake. We understand that he got upset about [Pusha-T’s diss track ‘The Story of Adidon’].

“I feel that it was insensitive for [Drake] to, in any way, stress me out in any way after TMZ, while I’m in Wyoming healing, pulling all the pieces together, working on my music.

“And you know, we’ll reconcile that one day because we got to, because we got work to do, and these voices is just too powerful.”

After seeing Kanye West’s comments, Drake took to Instagram to respond with a polaroid-style photo of himself with the words “The Boy 666666666” written under it.

Interestingly, Drake then chose to caption the image with a purple demon emoji and a crying laughter emoji.
