Watch the moment Kanye West took a break from his 'Yeezus' concert to respond to a recent dig from Drake.

Kanye West has responded to comments Drake was quoted as saying in a recent interview with Rolling Stone Magazine. 

Although Drizzy tweeted saying that he never commented on 'Yeezus' for his interview portion in Rolling Stone, the magazine quoted the 'Too Much' singer insulting 'Yeezus,' Drake said; "There were some real questionable bars on there... Like that 'Swahili' line?" he said, "Come on, man. Even Fabolous wouldn't say some sh*t like that". 

During a recent stop in New Jersey on his 'Yeezus' tour, Kanye took the opportunity to respond. In front of a crowd of thousands he said: "I’m gonna tell you what it is about magazines, they always be trying to pit n****s against each other and that ain’t going down no more."

"So tonight it ain’t none of that. We love Drake" he said, before throwing a couple of digs at the journalists that don't consult him on interviews before they're printed. 

The response during a 12 minute speech that included Kanye expressing frustration at rappers not being regarded in the same artistic light as poets. Watch the full thing above.
