Drake appears to have leaked an unreleased Kanye West “Donda” track that didn’t make the cut, which actually takes shots at the former … a bizarre move that seems to have backfired.
Drizzy was guest hosting a session of Sound 42 on Sirius XM early Saturday morning — which plays a ton of OVO-affiliated tunes … and which Drake announced he’d be hopping on around 2 AM to mix in a few of his own selected tracks for listeners. He wasn’t shy about it.
Sure enough, he did it … but folks noticed that during his time, Drake actually dropped a Ye song that hadn’t been heard before — and which sounded like it was a missing “Donda” cut.
It’s called “Life of the Party,” and it features Andre 3000 — who raps about his own late mother over a melancholy soul beat, killing his verse and kinda the whole song in the process. People are saying it’s the best “Donda” song … and wondering why it wasn’t included.
Meanwhile, Kanye jumps on after for a couple verses, and takes some direct shots at Drake.
KW raps, “I put Virgil and Drake on the same text // And it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress // Just told these grown men stop with the funny s***.”
He goes on to name drop Drake again in the same verse, saying he told him to stop playing with him — and then saying Drake “sent that message to everybody.” It’s unclear what exactly Ye’s talking about — he might be alluding the group text he sent, but that was Kanye who sent that warning shot … not Drake. In any case, just more fuel to the fire for their beef.
It also seems like Kanye might be having problems with Cudi too — because he name-dropped him as well … and suggested that Drake and KC wear matching dresses. Funny enough Cudi is featured on both of these guys’ albums — just like Jay-Z and other rappers.
There’s more that Kanye touches on in his part of the song — including avoiding the over-sexualization of children in his household (an issue that’s been addressed with North before) … and he even makes a “red hat” mention toward the end. This onion’s got unlimited layers.
