Drake’s address had already been public information, but the rapper’s fans still felt that West’s post was a step too far.
Drake responded to the post with a cryptic video posted to his Instagram story. In the short clip, Drake sits in the passenger seat of a convertible, laughing while shaking his head.

The 12-year-long feud was reignited on August 20, when Trippie Redd‘s new song featuring Drake, called “Betrayal” dropped. “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (burned out), let it go / Ye ain’t changin’ shit for me, it’s set in stone,” Drake raps in the song. The lyrics reference West and Pusha T’s ages.
Kanye appeared to respond to the verse in a group chat, which he screenshotted and posted to his Instagram.
“I live for this. I’ve been fucked with by nerd ass jock n****s like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you,” he wrote. The message was accompanied by a picture of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. The screenshot shows that the text was sent to a group chat of eight people, though the only person identified by a contact name is Pusha. Fans have speculated that the contact called “D” could be Drake.
