Master P blames "the people around them” for Kanye West and Drake beef

Master P has had his say on the beef between Kanye West and Drake, blaming “the people around them” for the escalation of the whole situation.

The two of them have been locked in this rivalry for over a decade now. It stems from when Drake was spotted with Amber Rose after her break-up with Ye, which the latter didn’t take gracefully, and in turn, he chopped out Drake’s verse on ‘All Of The Lights’.

Recently, Drake reignited the war by having a somewhat unnecessary dig at West on his new collaboration with Trippie Redd, ‘Betrayal’, which appears on Trippie’s recent album Trip At Knight.

On the track, Drizzy says, “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know / Forty-five, forty-four (burned out), let it go / Ye ain’t changin’ shit for me, it’s set in stone.” Retaliating, West then slammed the rapper in a leaked group text, and in response, his house was vandalised by fans of Drizzy.

Now, speaking in a new interview, Master P has had his say on the feud and commented during a podcast appearance on Allison Interviews, “I don’t think people realise they have all of these fans that might even be crazy and take things into their own hands. We have to watch what we do.

“There’s a lot of selfish people out in the world, and there are a lot of snakes in this world. I think when you are at this level, and you are making this type of money, even with some of these young artists that were losing their lives in hip-hop, which is sad, we have to be thankful and take this as a blessing and grow.”

“I think it’s the people around them. You have to have people giving you better advice, and you have to hold yourself accountable,” he said.

The rapper added: “I’ve always had self-accountability. And start thinking about what you say or what you do, and how it affects and hurts other people, and how you wouldn’t want that to be happening to you and your family. [There’s] a lot of self-hate.”

He concluded: “I would rather sit in the sewer and eat cheese with rats than sit at a nice restaurant and drink champagne and eat lobster and steak with a snake, and I think that’s what a lot of us are doing. When you get to that level of the game like some of these artists, why lose what you have? Once you get killed or go to jail there’s no turning back.”
