Drake is continuing to tease his new album while showing his appreciation for a classic Kanye West song in the process.
The Toronto rapper took to his Instagram Stories on Sunday (July 2) to share a video of himself wearing a sweatshirt that featured the same dogs used in his ad to promote his new poetry book, Titles Ruin Everything, as well as his upcoming album which is seemingly titled For All the Dogs.
In the clip, Drake can be heard singing along to Kanye’s College Dropout single “Through the Wire” in a bathroom while dancing and flexing his watch.
Drizzy’s choice of song appeared to be inspired by his and 21 Savage’s It’s All a Blur Tour kicking off in Kanye West’s hometown of Chicago on Wednesday (July 5).Drake and Kanye West have had a history of beefing over the years, but the pair seemingly put things behind them in December 2021 when they reunited for the “Free Larry Hoover” benefit concert in L.A.
“I painted the bigger picture to Drake,” Rap-A-Lot Records founder J. Prince told Billboard of the show. “I let him know that this is a moment and movement that can save lives. I believe by Drake and Kanye being an example, as two of Hip Hop’s top artists, that lives would be saved.
“I believe this is going to be imitated and it’s important to be an example to those that look up to you and that meant something to Drake — just the life-saving event wrapped around putting the spotlight on injustice, prison reform, and my brother Larry Hoover.
“Everything is icing on the cake after that, because he never envisioned things like that. So I had to tap into a power greater than the anger or whatever these guys had for one another.”
