Over the past few months, Kanye West has become synonymous with Twitter. Since his return to social media earlier this year, the artist has received more criticism than not for the ways in which he uses the site, including speaking highly of President Donald Trump and clashing with other celebrities, like John Legend, who reach out to Kanye to express their disappointment in what he says. It has gotten intense enough to the point where other rappers have threatened Kanye West with violence through their own social media accounts. But today, Kanye West is using his social media for good.
On the social media platform, Kanye West offered an apology to Drake, hoping he could find forgiveness from his fellow musician for "stepping on your release date," seemingly referring to the release dates of their newest studio albums, ye and Scorpion, both of which came out this past summer. As Kanye West admits, he was inconsiderate and missed an opportunity to collaborate with Drake on a new single because of his stubborn behavior. Now, Kanye West hopes Drake will forgive him as the "Hotline Bling" rapper gets ready to embark on his latest album tour. Here's what Kanye West wrote.
Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew.I haven't seen the show in person but the images look incredible online. I understand where the confusion started. Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place ... We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office. When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after [...] because we spoke about doing Lift Yourself together I should have given you the opportunity for us to do this together before I released it.
Accompanied in the first tweet was a picture from Drake's tour, which features a giant scorpion in a box. Kanye West was appreciative of the size and scale of the tour, and that might've seemingly inspired the musician to do some introspective thinking, realizing that he was in the wrong to step on Drake's album release. ye was released on June 1st. Scorpion, meanwhile, was released on June 29th. An early June release date wasn't formally announced for Drake's latest studio album, but it must've been in the works privately before Kanye West dropped his own album into the dead heat of summer. Now, Kanye is seemingly regretting that decision, and he hopes that Drake will find the strength to forgive him for what he did wrong, and Kanye hopes that they can continue working alongside each other too.
Whether or not that'll happen is something Drake will need to decide for himself, and it seems like he's a little preoccupied with his tour at the moment. Nevertheless, that's not going to stop Kanye from tweeting. Is there anything that will stop Kanye West from tweeting? It's hard to say.
