Drake Takes Aim At Kanye On ‘Red Button’
When Drake announced the third installment of his Scary Hours 3, fans thought it would be a two to three-track EP. But it was actually the deluxe version of For All The Dogs, which he named For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition. The Toronto rapped added six new songs: “Red Button,” “Stories About My Brother,” “The Shoe Fits,” “Wick Man,” “Evil Ways” featuring J. Cole, and “You Broke My Heart.”
On “Red Button,” the first track on Volume 2 of the project, he calls out Kanye for his fake friendship.
“Every time that Yeezy call the truce, he had my head inflated/Thinkin’ we gon’ finally peace it up and get to levitatin’/Realize that everything premeditated,” Drizzy raps.
Drake & Kanye’s Past Beef
If you recall, in 2021, the rappers called for a truce when they put on the “Free Larry Hoover” Benefit Concert with the intent to draw awareness to prison reform and bring justice to incarcerated Chicago gang leader Larry Hoover. It seemed as though their past beef was water under the bridge, but then Drake went back to his petty ways.
Last year, Drake released Her Loss, a collaborative album with 21 Savage. On the track “Circo Loco,” Drizzy raps “I did that s— for J Prince.” J. Prince is a music executive who was part of getting Drake and Kanye back together. Ye posted a photo in 2021 of all three of them at his house, seemingly signifying that the two were back on good terms.
However, it didn’t stop there. On “Search & Rescue,” he samples Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian. The SKIMS founder is heard saying, “I didn’t come this far, just to come this far and not be happy, remember that,” on the song. The sample comes from the 2021 season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She was talking to her mom, Kris Jenner, about she and Ye’s marriage ending.
