DRAKE CALLS KANYE ‘BURNED OUT’
In his new single, Drake called out Kanye by referencing “Ye,” referring to him by his exact age, and mocking him as “burned out.”
The lyrics read: “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know.
“Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go.”
He added: “Ye ain’t changin’ s*** for me, it’s set in stone.”
DRAKE CREDITS R KELLY ON NEW TRACK
Drake has credited R Kelly as a co writer on his new track ‘TSU’.
The Independent reports the album, which was produced by Harley Arsenault, Noel, and OG Ron C, also credits Justin Timberlake and T Mosley.
It is unclear what direct involvement R Kelly had with the project.
The controversial move comes as R Kelly is currently standing trial in New York on child sex abuse charges.
The credit does not necessarily mean Drake worked with R Kelly on the track. Famously Taylor Swift credited Right Said Fred on her 2017 single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ because she sampled the rhythm from their ‘Model’ hit for the chorus line.
They had nothing to do with production – and reportedly only found out when the song was released – but crucially were able to claim a chunk of royalties.
HOW DID KANYE AND DRAKE’S FEUD START?
The back-and-forth between the former friends started when Drake appeared to insinuate that he had sex with Kanye’s wife Kim.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star denied the rumors about Drake in a response to In My Feelings.
DELETED TEXTS
In a. deleted Instagram post, Kanye, 44, had shared an image of the text messages he sent out to at least eight people including someone with the initial “D”, suspected to be Drake. 
The first text was a still from the recent Joker movie, starring Joaquin Phoenix. 
The second text message read: “I live for this. 
“I’ve been f**ked with by nerd a** jock ni***s like you my whole life.
“You will never recover. I promise you.”
WHEN DID DRAKE DATE RIHANNA?
