Was Andre 3000 not aware of Kanye West dissing Drake on leaked song?

Andre 3000’s leaked track did not make the cut to Kanye West’s official tracklist and hence it was supposed to release as a part of the deluxe but somehow Drake got his hands on the song and he decided to play dirty. Shedding light on the entire situation, Andre released an official statement saying that his track getting leaked was “unfortunate” adding that he wanted to get featured on Drake’s latest album ‘Certified Lover Boy’ aka CLB. The ‘Stankonia’ hitmaker also expressed his desire to collaborate with rap stalwarts like Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar. While clarifying his contribution to Kanye’s verse he said, “A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album. I was inspired by his idea to make a musical tribute to his mom. It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013.”  He continued, “We both share that loss. I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but, unfortunately, I didn’t know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an edited ‘clean’ format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. So, sadly, I had to be omitted from the original album release.”

Andre added, “The track I received and wrote to didn’t have the diss verse on it and we were hoping to make a more focused offering for the Donda album but I guess things happen like they are supposed to.” He further said, “It’s unfortunate that it was released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth. I wanted to be on Certified Lover Boy too. I just want to work with people that inspire me” concluding, “Hopefully I can work with Kendrick on his album. I’d love to work with Lil’ Baby, Tyler and Jay-Z. I respect them all.”  On the leaked song, Kanye West raps, “I put Virgil and Drake on the same text, and it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress/ Just told these grown men stop it with the funny s**t.” Interestingly, Kid Cudi features on both ‘Donda’ and ‘CLB.’

‘He sabotaged Andre 3000 who came pure on a song’

Social media users thronged to Twitter and spoke how disrespectful it got for Andre 3000 to get dragged into the beef without him being aware. One user stated, “The fact that an andre 3000 verse being leaked is causing more controversy than kanye bringing out serial rapist marilyn manson speaks volumes.” Another shared, “Kanye fans must be so mad about drake exposing him as a snake. He sabotaged Andre 3000 who came pure on a song and turned it into a diss track towards drake. But y’all don’t want to speak on that. I got time today.”
 
Whereas, the next one tweeted, “If life of the party actually drops, i hope kanye takes the drake disses off of it and changes the verse. really disrespectful to andre 3000 otherwise” Another added, “I’m glad Andre 3000 said this. It felt weird to me that Kanye chose to add a diss verse to Drake on a song where Andre was talking about his dead mother. I was like no way Andre knew that was the case. Glad I was right.” And, one user concluded, “Andre 3000 didn't deserve to get caught up in the middle of this Drake and Kanye have to squash this issh now Put litter in its now.”
