Will Drake and 'side piece' Kylie Jenner saga make the Taylor Swift-Kanye West feud look like a schoolyard scuffle?
While Kanye and Taylor's feud got intense media attention, Drake calling Kylie a 'side piece' doesn't seem to be making much of a stir
This past week, rappers Drake and Future's song played on Night Owl Sound's Instagram Live revealing lyrics that take us back to the Kanye-Kim-Taylor Swift feud over controversial lyrics that lasted for years. In this song, the rapper's lyrics had some interesting ways of describing Kylie Jenner and other big names such as Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. We're wondering if this will become ugly like the OG Taylor and Kanye feud?
"Real s**t, Kylie Jenner, that's a side piece / Yeah, I got 20 motherf**kin' Kylies," said the lyrics of the rapper' song where he refers to Kylie, whom he was suspected to be romantically linked to, as a "side piece". The morning after the song played on the Live stream, a statement from the rapper revealed that the song had been recorded three years ago but was dismissed.
"A song that Mark ran last night on Night Owl sound live set shouldn't have been played. It's a song that leaked 3 years ago and got scrapped shortly after. He was just going too deep in the drake/future catalogue. Last thing I'd want to do is wake up having any friends of mine feeling disrespected so I just had to say that to start off the day," said the rapper the next morning on his Instagram stories.
The people that were mentioned on the song have remained mum on the lyrics but E! News reported that a source revealed that Kylie "wasn't surprised" by the lyrics. "She has no hard feelings about it. She knew it was old. She and Drake are still very good friends and she just laughed it off." The source had also said that the makeup mogul had "appreciated" that the rapper had acted fast and released the statement.
Going back in time real quick, we're getting a bit of deja-vu because things, according to Kanye, were all cool when he rapped these lyrics in his 2016 song 'Famous' — "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that b***h famous." Taylor's team had said that the 'Teardrops on my Guitar' singer did not approve of the lyric but Kanye said otherwise, even tweeting, "though it was funny and gave her blessing."
Since almost everything in Hollywood works with solidarity, many people took the rapper's side especially after his wife Kim Kardashian released audio of Kanye and Taylor speaking making it seem that Taylor was lying. This went on until recently, the full video was finally released which revealed that Taylor was in fact uncomfortable with the lyric and did not agree to anything. Shocker!
It seems while Taylor's reaction to the rapper's lyrics was aggressive and rightly so, Kylie seems to be calm about her part in Drake's unreleased song. While we hope that things stay this calm, we can't forget that this could definitely come back up causing a scandal in the future. Not to mention, Kylie wasn't the only name mentioned. It also seems that no permission was given either.
It's even worse when fans took a deep dive on the incident tweeting, "Why is no one talking about the fact that drake just outed himself as a pedophile lmao he called kylie his “sidepiece” in a song and apologized and said the song was from 3 years ago....when kylie was 19.......and he was 30," while another tweeted, "The fact that future AND drake got in the booth and called Kylie a sidepiece is so funny bruh."
You can always count on Twitter to make points that some may have overlooked — will the Kar-Jenner clan have something to say about the age difference involved? While Kanye and Taylor's feud got intense media attention, Drake calling Kylie a side piece doesn't seem to be making much of a stir. Although we can attribute that to the fact that the youngest Jenner was calm about the incident, we suspect that some drama would come out of this — legal or otherwise — because nothing stays buried in Hollywood and enemies are made overnight.
