Drake was a guest on LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s HBO show The Shop last night, where he talked about his parents, the mother of his child, and his recent feud with Kanye West and Pusha-T. As Complex reports, he claimed that it all started when Kanye invited him to Wyoming to work on some beats for Drake.
“I ended up linking with Ye, and he sold me on this whole speech of like, ‘I’m in a great place, I’m making money, and I’m a father, and I wanna be Quincy Jones and help you, but in order to do that, you’ve gotta be transparent with me, ” Drake said. “And you gotta play me your music, and you gotta tell me when you’re dropping.

Then, the first album drops. And of course there’s a diss song toward me that you produced, that’s talking about writing? I was just there with you as friends helping you, and now you’re dissing me.
