Kanye West opens up about Drake & Jay-Z

Zane Lowe recently travelled out to Wyoming, where he conducted an exclusive interview with Kanye West in the lead up to supposed release of Jesus Is King. Ye's new found passion for religion has been well documented, and it would seem this revelation has caused him to shed light on many aspects of his personal and professional life.
“God is funny. Drake literally lives four blocks down the street from me, that shows God has a sense of humor cause we had a rivalry. You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother. I go to Drake’s house, walk over there with no security, here’s my phone number. I’m not trying to ring the doorbell. He might be busy."
Yeezy's relationship with his contemporary is obviously of high importance to him, and perhaps a road to musical collaboration in the future isn't too far fetched. Moving on to discuss fellow member of the throne Jay, Kanye said:
“With Jay, I love all of these people, but you got to know there’s a lineage of Jay to Ye to Drake. This person is your idol. Then you get to know ’em, then you be friends, then you turn to frenemies, then you turn to enemies, and then you gotta bring back the positive energy. But that is the lineage of rap kings and inspirers.”
Cryptic words from the self proclaimed God. Assumptions say that the two have cooled the beef for the time being, but wouldn't expect any talk of the long propheted Watch The Throne 2 anytime soon. Jesus Is King has dropped this weekend, and as ever Kanye is definitely keeping us entertained.
