Champagne Papi found himself to be quite the hot topic over the weekend. Drake trended on Twitter after fellow rapper Kanye West shared the emcee’s home address in a now-deleted Instagram post.

What led to West suddenly leaking the “Hotline Bling” rapper’s personal information? It seems to have started when, while appearing on Trippie Redd‘s new song, “Betrayal,” Drake took some shots at West.

He raps in a verse: “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (burned out), let it go / Ye ain’t changin’ sh-t for me, it’s set in stone.”

This clearly must have gotten back to West, who took to social media to clap back.

Before leaking Drake’s address, West took to Instagram and shared a screenshot seemingly referencing his latest feature. West sent a photo of The Joker, the popular comic book character played by Joaquin Phoenix in the 2019 movie, to an unidentified group thread on iMessage.

Then he wrote in a message: “I live for this. I’ve been f—-d with by nerd ass jock n—as like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you.”

On Sunday, however, West seemed to take it one step further, posting a picture of Drake’s exact location via Google Maps on IG, effectively leaking his address. While the post was almost immediately deleted, that certainly didn’t stop people from taking screenshots, plenty of which are now circulating online.

Fans immediately took to Twitter to react to the shocking revelation.

One user wrote in a tweet, “did kanye just post drakes address and then delete it like nothing happened?”

Others seemed tickled by the fact that West’s long-awaited album, Donda, seemingly keeps getting pushed back, but he had time to leak Drake’s address. A fan wrote, “his man kanye dropped drakes addy before donda,” along with crying emojis.

While West’s move was certainly shocking, Drake seems to want fans to know he is getting the last laugh.

Hours after West shared the info, Drake shared a video to his Instagram Story in which he is riding around in a car, simply laughing to himself. Fans immediately saw this as a response to West’s move, with Drake keeping it light and seemingly unbothered.

West and Drake have a long and colored history together. While the exact root of their feud remains a bit murky, Drake did open up about their beef while on LeBron JamesThe Shop back in 2018.

He shared at the time that he believed West played a part in Drake’s infamous feud with Pusha T, sharing, “I’m in Wyoming. I play him ‘March 14.’ I send him a picture of my son. I tell him I’m having trouble with my son’s mother,” all of which wound up on Pusha T’s 2018 diss track “The Story of Adidon.”

Kanye West LEAKS Drake's Address On IG & Drake Responds!

Drake Has the Last Laugh After Kanye West Appears to Post His Toronto Address Online - E! Online

E! NEWS 23 August, 2021 - 03:39pm

The four-time Grammy winner laughed off Kanye West's latest jab, as the pair's longtime feud heats up.

Fans thought Kanye "crossed the line" by publicly sharing Drake's Toronto address for the world to see, according to a screenshot of a since-deleted Instagram post published by TMZ, which seemingly revealed Drake's home on a maps app. (E! News has not independently verified the authenticity of TMZ's screenshots.) 

In the wee hours of Aug. 23, Drake appeared to give his reaction to the doxing by brushing it off on his Instagram Story. The "God's Plan" artist shared a video of himself riding in a car with the top down at night, as he chuckled to himself. He didn't mention the Donda rapper by name, but something clearly tickled his funny bone.

Earlier in the night, he had posted a video of Toronto's CN Tower and Rogers Centre stadium, which suggested he is currently in his hometown. 

Fans think Drake, 34, reignited the stars' feud when he seemingly rapped about Kanye, 44, being burned out during his feature on Trippie Redd's Aug. 20 song "Betrayal." Drake sings, "All these fools I'm beefin' that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go / Ye ain't changin' s--t for me, it's set in stone." 

Kanye, who recently split with Irina Shayk after two months together, appeared to give his response to Drake's lyrics when he posted a screenshot of a group chat, as seen on TMZ

"I live for this. I've been f--ked with by nerd ass jock n----s like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you," Kanye allegedly wrote. 

E! News reached out to Drake's rep for comment after his address was reportedly leaked but hasn't heard back.

Their relationship soured after they collaborated on the 2010 song "Find Your Love." They potentially lost the love later that year, when Drake was cut from Kanye's "All of the Lights." 

When his voice was nowhere to be heard on the final track, Drake told Shade 45's morning show, "Kanye's creative process is ever-changing." Drake said he didn't know why he was removed, explaining, "We make music differently. I make what comes to me and I hate changing it, whereas 'Ye will change something 30 or 40 times to get it perfect. To each their own, and the change was to put all those people on it, and I wasn't one of them. That's completely OK."

Among their issues since then: Drake accused Kanye of blabbing to Pusha T about his newborn son, which Pusha denied in 2018. Later that year, Kanye got upset when Drake followed his then-wife Kim Kardashian on Instagram.

In 2019, Yeezy publicly alluded to their beef in the Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.

He brought up "an artist which I will not mention because I'm not allowed to mention him or any of his family members," adding, "We had a little beef last year," according to Pitchfork. Kanye then shared his favorite line from Drake's song "Crew Love."

Kanye West's Confusing 'Donda' Album Rollout, Explained

VICE UK 23 August, 2021 - 06:11am

Apple Music furnish the listening party playback, which becomes the music app’s most-streamed live event ever. You stay up until three in the morning to watch it. But when the “Louis Vuitton don” eventually slinks on stage, several hours late, the music is discernible. It’s like listening to a stolen hard drive with unfinished verses and tracking vocals. There’s no album.

Part two, of the clown portrait: West announces he is sleeping inside the MB Stadium until the album is signed-off. Livestreams from inside his backstage-at-WWE-looking room reveal collaborators lifting weights and getting haircuts, but not making music. Another listening party is announced: Demna Gvasalia, creative director of Balenciaga and cofounder of hyper-hipster brand Vetements, is brought on board, to oversee the visuals. Shit has to be done the second go. More press releases are sent.

Two weeks after the first party, Apple Music host the playback, which once again becomes their most-streamed live event Of All Time (Of All Time!), toppling West’s previous record by a couple mil). Kid Cudi, Jay Z, Roddy Ricch, Westside Gunn, Playboi Carti, Fivio Foreign and more all appear, sliding onto tracks that sound more finished than the first listening party. One performance features West ascending, like an angel slash UFO victim, toward the stadium’s ceiling. It’s meatier than listening sesh one.

Again, there’s no album release. However, the red puffa jacket ‘Ye wears during the event – the latest fashion-bag from his Gap collaboration – is put on sale by the dad-adored brand. Previous releases of the coat’s light blue colour-way allegedly raked in $7 million overnight. So, timing is right.

A portrait of a clown, part trés: It’s the 18th of August and another listening party is announced, taking place almost a month after the first one. With no album available to stream, you’re in desperate-Kanye-West-fan territory. So you come up with a theory: he’s turning the often-unseen process of creating an album into a listener-experienced, multi-ticketed event. What a genius!

Regardless of if an unfinished album was intended, Donda’s crawl-out is the first time we've seen a blockbuster-level rap album, plus a stadium-size stage show, take form in real time, on a multimillion dollar scale. 

Clown hat or not, at a time when an albums’ newsworthiness can last less than a week, where records are dropped constantly by surprise, Donda remains present. A month on and without a release, that’s massive.

Crucially – for a record sans a streamable album – Donda’s non-release has already made more money than most musicians ever will. The second Mercedes Benz event reportedly stacked up $7 million in merch sales. Demand for Yeezy apparel and footwear also surged by 347 percent during the rollout, according to The Sole Supplier. Add to the fact that the livestream broke Apple Music records and followed ads for Nike and Beats, Kanye continues to cement into a corporation, as well as artist.

On the 26th of August, the listening experience will arrive in Chicago, West’s home city. As desperation grows, this could be the last listening party before the final product. But as this roll-out proves, waiting is wealth, and – according to last weekend – will include incel-level beef with Drake.
