New footage has emerged of Drake performing at the United Center arena and low-key switching up his “Know Yourself” lyrics to rip Yeezy.
The beef between Drake and Kanye West, Pusha-T, and G.O.O.D. Music seemed to have died down, but Drizzy may have fanned the flames while performing “Know Yourself” in West’s hometown. Based on video of the performance, it sounds as if he changed the line “Then Kanye dropped, it was polos and backpacks,” to “Then Kanye flopped, it was polos and backpacks.” (Genius)

In early July, G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha-T reflected on their recent dispute and promised to listen to Drake’s Scorpion album.
“He said what he said, I said what I said, now it’s done. It stayed how it was supposed to stay, just words,” grins Pusha. “It was definitely good for hip-hop. What has been more energetic than this?” On Drake’s new album, Scorpion, he addresses Pusha’s revelations about his child with the lyrics: “I wasn’t hiding my kid from the world, I was hiding the world from my kid.” Will he give it a listen? “Hell yeah! I gotta have something to compare Daytona to, don’t I?” he says. (The Guardian)
The same week, G-Unit boss 50 Cent said Pusha officially won the Drake feud after getting super personal with his “Story of Adidon” diss record.
“Pusha-T was dead in pocket with that because he offered information to the public before, that they didn’t know was real. When that happens, they go, ‘Wait.’ They heard the line, ‘That was true?’ They go, ‘Oh sh*t.’ It’s really, people’s interest in Drake is what made the line so good. It became has important as he was to the actual culture because these are true statements. Then you’re going, from Drake’s space, he can make a song that sounds like God wrote it right now and they’re gonna listen to it and be like, ‘That’s cool.'” (Whoolywood Shuffle)
A couple months ago, Drake’s mom applauded her mini-me for being the bigger man and not responding to Pusha’s “Story of Adidon” diss record.
“Sure do,” Sandi said when asked if the rap feuds should end. “They’re too grown up for that. I believe he always makes the best decisions in the end.” (TMZ)
In early June, Kanye West called off the war of words between Drake and Pusha.
I’ve never been about beef I’m about love lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now
