Drake took to Instagram to confirm that his new album 'Certified Lover Boy' will be out this Friday, September 3, 2021. And now, Drake fans, who had been waiting for a long time for his new album to drop, can openly argue about him being a better rapper than Kanye especially following the release of Kanye's latest 'Donda' album. The two celebrity rappers are already engaged in an ongoing feud of sorts so it was only time before their fandoms got involved as well.
