Kanye West‘s childhood home in the city of Chicago has been “vandalised” by Drake fans as the competition between the two rappers continues. Per Uproxx‘s report, three signs appeared on the steps going up to the front door of West’s childhood abode, which he shared with his professor of English mother, Donda.
One sign appears to be promoting Drake’s upcoming album Certified Lover Boy, while another of the signs personally attacks Justin LaBoy, the former basketball player and media celebrity who has been in charge of promoting West’s controversial new album, Donda.
The last of the three sings read “45 44 Burnt Out”, and it directly references the recent collaboration between Drake and Soundcloud rapper Trippie Redd entitled ‘Betrayal’. The track made headlines recently as it contains a verse where Drake seems to take a pop at West. The verse reads: “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know/ 45, 44 (burned out), let it go/ Ye ain’t changin’ s— for me, it’s set in stone”.
All this furore and division comes after the long-standing dispute recently flared up again. Following Drake’s collaboration with Trippie Redd, West criticised him in a group text, which included Pusha T, Drake’s other rival in the rap world. West’s criticism read: “I live for this. I’ve been fucked with by nerd ass jock n****s like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you”.
That wasn’t all, though. West also shared a post on social media that included a screenshot of a map to a mansion, which was taken to be Drake’s Toronto pad. It also had a full address listed below it. The post was quickly deleted after being posted.
Last week, Drake allegedly confirmed that Certified Lover Boy will be released on September 3 after he “hacked” into ESPN’s SportsCenter on Friday (August 27). In the staged hacking, the broadcast was interrupted by a mysterious hooded holding a sign up to the camera which read “CLB September”.
