Drake Disses Kanye West While Performing 'Know Yourself' At Chicago Show

Uhhhh, it looks like Drake hasn't moved on from his beef with Kanye West. During the rapper's most recent "Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour" stop in Chicago (Ye's hometown) on Saturday (August 18), the Scorpion rapper decided to throw a shot at Mr. West while performing "Know Yourself."

Instead of rapping the song's original lyrics, "Then Kanye dropped, it was polos and backpacks," Drake spit, “Then Kanye flopped, it was polos and backpacks.”

While some members of the Chicago crowd booed after hearing the diss, many continued to rap along with the "God's Plan" rapper.

Drake's diss seemed to be in reference to the fact that Drake's recent Scorpio album sold 732,000 album units in its first week (and it became the first album to hit 1 billion global streams in a week) while Kanye's Ye album sold 208,000 album units. 

As for the rappers' beef, well, that has a little something to do with the rumor that Kanye was the one who told Pusha T about Drake's son. 

Earlier this summer, Pusha dropped a diss track, "Story of Adidon," where he revealed to the world that Drake had a secret son. After its release, many speculated that Kanye possibly let the cat out of the bag. 

Adding to the speculation, Ye even randomly inserted himself into the rappers' feud on Twitter at the time. "I’ve never been about beef," he wrote. "I’m about love. lines were crossed and it’s not good for anyone so this is dead now."
