Kanye insisted there was no bad blood, but that the conflict may have arisen from an angry emoji.
“When we talk about the Drake thing, it hits me in a really sensitive place,” Kanye said. “Because you hang around people and they come to your house and be around your family and this and that. And they get mad about a beat and send you purple demon emojis.”
“We all got love for Drake,” he said. “We understand that he got upset about [“The Story of Adidon.”] I feel that it was insensitive for him to, in any way, stress me out in any way after TMZ, while I’m in Wyoming healing, pulling all the pieces together, working on my music. And you know, we’ll reconcile that one day because we got to, because we got work to do, and these voices is just too powerful.”
Shortly after the interview made headlines, the 6 God posted an unfazed photo of himself on Instagram. Written underneath are the words, “The Boy 666666666” and captioned are a crying laughing emoji and a purple demon emoji.
