Earlier this month, Kanye West went on an apology spree, trying to make nice with others and even telling Drake to "take his good energy." Whatever that means.
Now, however, it looks like Kanye has changed his tune. He recorded a video message for various men in the music industry with whom he has a beef.
The short version? Don't talk about his wife, don't think about his wife, and definitely don't suggest that you've ever boned her.
"I just wanted to express some things that were not sitting right with my spirit," Kanye explains.
Kanye continues: "Now that I’m up out the sunken place I can think and I can just be ‘Ye and express how I feel."
When he says the sunken place, he is referring to Get Out, though some would argue that he is using the reference with the opposite of its intended meaning.
"There’s a couple of things that I want to address," Kanye explains.
"First of all I want to address Nick Cannon," Kanye announces.
"I understand that you used to date my wife," he says. "But you know, you get into an interview, don’t mention my wife."
That is something that many would consider to be an odd or intrusive instruction.
"If someone brings my wife up, say, ‘I respect that man, I’m not speaking on that,'" Kanye demands. "Don’t be making no suggestions -- like nobody f--k my wife"
That demand might have gone over better with some fans if Kanye had asked Nick to respect Kim. But Kanye is all about Kanye.
So, Kanye produced a song of Pusha T's that called out Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter for his music.
"Now if I wasn’t in a medicated state I might have thought and had the wherewithal to say, ‘Hey Pusha, don’t diss Drake on my beat," Kanye admits.
"And I spoke about that and took accountability for that," he says.
"People making rumors or thinking you f--k my wife and you’re not saying nothing…" Kanye continues. "That don’t sit well with my spirit."
It has long been speculated that the "Kiki" from Drake's song, "In My Feelings," may have been Kim Kardashian, even though she never boned Drake.
"You know, if I had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita, and you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called Riri," Kanye says.
"So when you’re like, ‘Ahhh I don’t know where it come from,’ you too smart for that bro," Kanye insists.
"You know where that come from," Kanye continues to lecture Drake. "Don’t make no record with nothing that can be confused."
These are some hefty demands.
You know how Pusha T revealed that Drake had a secret child?
"Now I told ya, I didn’t tell Pusha no information about your baby, baby mama, nothing," Kanye says. "That don’t come from me,”
“Don’t speak on nobody from our family," Kanye commands. "Nothing that can even be mentioned with my wife period."
"We don’t have to talk again," Kanye says. "I’m not giving no energy to that."
Kanye's dragon energy isn't an unlimited resource, we guess.
Kanye moved on to yet another target.
"As far as Tyson Beckford goes, don’t speak on my wife, bro," Kanye insists.
"Like none of y’all speak on my wife period," he demands. "What are you talking about? I’m married. We’re in love, we’re a family."
We don't think that anyone seriously questions that, but apparently, in Kanye's mind, these men should never mention Kim Kardashian.
"All three of y’all, come talk to me," Kanye instructs. "We’ll work it out."
Kanye just told Drake that they didn't need to speak again in one breath, and then invited him to talk to him with the next.
"Nick Cannon, Drake, Tyson Beckford," Kanye concludes. "All that wasn’t sittin’ right with me."
Yes. That much is clear.
It will be interesting to see how they respond to Kanye's Thursday message.
