The short-lived friendship between musicians Kanye West and Drake came to an end rather quickly. West has gained a lot of enemies recently thanks to his endless controversial social media posts. The list includes celebrities and artists with whom he shared a friendship recently. Now, rappers are known to use their music to diss each other in public. With his latest album, Drake proved that he is no exception.

West and Drake’s relationship started on good terms, even giving shout outs to each other. They later worked on songs like Find Your Love in 2010. But things spiraled down when rumors of Drake dating Amber Rose days after she broke up with West surfaced. This led to several incidences of the two targeting each other over the years until 2021. But soon enough, Drake ended the peace pact with his new album.

Later, Drakes’s single Circo Loco, which was made with Circo Loco also had the lines, “Linking with the opps b*itch I did it for the mob ties, fee like 172 percs frogs eyes, I never been the type to apologize I’d rather hit ’em up 1 more time.”
