Kanye West: ‘Someone told me Drake had Covid-19 and it haunted me’
Kanye West recently held a virtual interview with Forbes Magazine and while the experience was as bizarre as can be, nothing topped the claim he made about his bro-turned-foe Drake.
Kanye West is most certainly running for president
The long-form interview with the rap billionaire and future urban fashion mogul took place days after he broke the internet with his official announcement that he was running for president of the United States (U.S) in November’s campaign.
While it is technically too late for Kanye West to register his independent party — the Birthday Party (yes, you did not read that incorrectly) — in most states, he confirmed that he and his team of strategists led by his wife Kim Kardashian-West and Elon Musk (again, you did not read any of this incorrectly), are looking at ways to appeal this and enter the process within 30 days.
West pins coronavirus on Drake
The in-depth discussion around his 2020 presidential campaign tagged “YES!” can be found in the cited article. We just thought it was hilarious that:
a) his version of the White House is modelled after fantasy Wakanda in Black Panther; and
b) he went with Birthday Party because “when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday.”
Somewhere in his conversation with Randall Lane, Kanye West opened up about the struggles of dealing with coronavirus (Covid-19).
Ye admitted that he had contracted the virus in February and while it was a difficult period in his life, he could not fathom how Drake could be sicker than he was.
You will remember that earlier in the year, it was reported that Drake had contracted Covid-19 after coming into contact with Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant.
The Toronto rapper went into self-isolation but in April, it was reported that he had tested negative for Covid-19.
These reports haunted a sickly West. He admitted that he could not stand losing to Drake in a battle of ‘who is sicker than me’.
“Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!” he exclaimed.
West has, for the better part of two years, been trying to mend his relationship with Drake after he fell out with Pusha T. His efforts, up until now, have not been reciprocated by Drizzy.
Meanwhile, the Toronto megastar has, for the most part, turned a blind eye against recent drama from Pusha T. It seems that all of this energy is being channelled towards his upcoming studio album which, by his own admission, is 80% complete.
