International rapper Kanye West has reached out to Drake over Twitter, apologising for his contributions to their beef. 

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, the "Ultralight Beam" rapper explained how the beef between him and Drake came about and apologised for his involvement in it. 

This comes as snippet surfaced of an upcoming diss track Drake has with French Montana called “No Stylist” which sees Drake rapping "Keeping it G, I told her don’t wear no 350’s around me" referencing Kanye's Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers.

In the series of Tweets, Kanye chronicles his side of the story. Starting with him posting a picture of Drake's stage from his tour sending love to Drake's family and crew. 

Kanye then goes to detail how he "stepp(ed) on (his) release date" and that he was on a Twitter rant doing about "25 tweets a day". 

He then explained that he and Drake were planning on working together on "Lift Yourself“ and references the beef between Pusha T and Drake. Stating that while he did executive produce Pusha T's album, he didn't reveal any information about Drake to Pusha T. 

The "Ye" rapper ended his tweets by saying that he has love for both of the rappers and that he plans on going to watch Drake show in the next seven days. 

Sending good energy and love to Drake and family and crew💜💜💜

I haven’t seen the show in person but the images look incredible online

I understand where the confusion started

Let me start by apologizing for stepping on your release date in the first place … We were building a bond and working on music together including squashing the issues with Cudi at our office.

When I put the dates up I was a bit ramped up doing 25 tweets a day TMZ happened shortly after … I have to hop on the plane now… will type more when I land

plane taxiing for take off... because we spoke about doing Lift Yourself together I should have given you the opportunity for us to do this together before I released it

— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018

since we were building as friends and brothers I should have spoken to Pusha about the Quentin Miller bar. There should have been no songs with my involvement that had any negative energy towards you

— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018

I never listened to either diss track that followed but I did hear quotes from both songs after they were released

— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018

I did not have any conversations about your child with Pusha. I don’t play with the idea of people’s children after I spoke to Wiz a few years earlier.

— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) September 5, 2018

I understand Pusha’s issues as a man if someone mentions your fiancé men go mask off. I’ve done the same myself at times. I love you and I love Pusha and we all have an admiration for each other’s craft.

This is all Jedi level. I will be coming to your show within the next seven days to give love and be inspired by the art you have created.
