You might assume that there isn’t an hour’s worth of information pertaining to why exactly Kanye West hates Drake (allegedly, of course), but you’d be wrong. In fact, UK trap lorist Trap Lore Ross’ latest investigative exposé dives right into the subject and clocks in at an hour and some change.
The story starts back in 2009 when Drake was first starting to buzz. He breaks down Drake and Kanye’s first meeting that year in Hawaii, and their initial collaborations including Ye directing Drizzy’s video for his breakout single “Best I Ever Had,” and the pair appearing alongside Lil Wayne and Eminem on the Boi-1da-produced “Forever.” Kanye also co-wrote and co-produced “Find Your Love” in 2010, but later that year he did an interview where he claimed Drake’s attitude had changed and he had gotten “too big.” Drake was then left off “All Of The Lights” after initially being part of the collaboration, and Drake was seen around that time with Amber Rose, Ye’s ex. All in all, 2010 featured the release of Watch the Throne—a project Ye stated was inspired by the pressure brought forth by Drake’s rapid rise—and a response from Drake on DJ Khaled’s “I’m On One” single: “I’m just feeling like the throne is for the taking/Watch me take it.”
Anyways, that should set the stage for Trap Lore Ross to breakdown the last 10 years and where the Drake/Kanye relationship stands today.
