Kanye West is an imbecile, but he’s clearly suffering through some mental health issues at the moment, so we’re going to take it a little easy on him.
Early this morning South African time, or late Thursday night for Kanye, he unleashed a serious barrage of tweets, many of which were aimed at fellow musician Drake.
In the space of a few hours, he sent hundreds of tweets, many of which made no sense. If we are talking about those that did, then the issue that was front and centre is Kanye’s feud with Drake.
There had been some online, coded words between the two these past few weeks, and then things really kicked off.
“Drake called trying to threaten me,” Kanye tweeted, signaling round two. From that point, the messages took a heavy turn. “The kid he had run on stage at Pushas concert is in critical condition,” he continued, inferring that the Canadian rapper was behind the brawl at Pusha T’sconcert in Toronto last month, where one person was stabbed. Kanye continued, “Since the pool line he’s been trying to poke at me and fuck with me.”
And then, “So Drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect. So cut the tough talk.” A flow of jabs followed: “It just doesn’t sit right on my spirit” and “I got a family and kids. 69 is locked up xxx is dead. The kid that ran on stage is in the hospital.”
At times, Kanye appeared to be swinging at everything. “You are disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions so this is an opportunity for growth,” he wrote. And later, “Please take the devil up out of you” and “some true artist are a bit crazy. Everybody is not Programed” (sic) and “you get people hurt at concerts.”
As far as Twitter eruptions go, this was spectacular. And, with various references to god and the devil, biblical.
If you’re keen for the full eruption, pop past Kanye’s Twitter account and get scrolling, because there are too many to cover here.
A brief snapshot of peace and love amongst the barrage:
Also, how about condensing those into a single tweet? That’s what those 280 characters are for.
The high (or low, or buzz) slowly wore off and he lost momentum at around 8AM our time:
As the heat drained out, Kanye reflected on his stream of thought (“These tweets are not emotional”), inserted himself in his story (“This is a man speaking to a man that has been placed in the program to fuck with Kanye West head and set me up”) and spoke Drake’s mind (“You’re mad at me for something I didn’t do”). It ground to a halt (maybe) with a “vibe” triptych: “I will never make a diss record. I will never put negative energy into a song. Only positive energy.”
Seek help, Kanye, and maybe take some time off this festive season to focus on sorting out your
