Kanye is on a tweet rampage again. And again. And one mo’ ’gin. This time, he’s subbing Drake.

Let’s do a breakdown, shall we? Get comfy.

It all started with a screenshot.

The screenshot is a text requesting clearance for Drake’s 2009 song, “Say What’s Real,” since it samples Kanye’s “Say You Will” beat, according to Complex.

Kanye then asks Drake for an apology for dissing his Yeezy 350s, basically costing his family money.

Next, Kanye claims he’s been trying to have a sitdown with Drake for half a year then mentions Drake “sneak dissing” in Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode,” but at the same time, being all up in Queen Overlord Jenner’s texts with the pleasantries.

Then, we get to the “good” stuff: The hush-hush heir of Aubrey Graham.

Here, Ye was basically referencing Pusha T revealing that the person who actually told “The Story of Adidon” artist about Drake’s then-secret son Adonis “Mahbed” was none other than producer Noah “4o” Shebib.

Kanye then unleashes the “Don’t play with me,” which you know is nigga-speak for “Oh, it’s on like Donkey Kong.”

That’s when things escalate, with Ye mentioning how Drake mocks mental issues with purple emojis. He wants an apology now, and not through a middleman, Mr. Degrassi.

“No tough talk, either,” Ye warns.

After tweeting a few more screenshots of the song clearance request (seriously, is he double-tapping on the tweet button? Is that a thing? Doesn’t it grey-out when you hit it the first time?), he tweets one more thing that “got [him] hot.”

Didn’t 50 Cent do this to Ja Rule, too? Yeah, he did.

Anyway, things get holier-than-thou when Kanye tweets a bible verse. Jesus is walking away.

And now for the grand finale, the pièce de résistance, the point to all of this rigamarole: Drake finally calls him.

Now that he got his call, can someone take his phone? Thanks.

Oh, and if you stayed for the post-credits scene for this shitshow, the 2009 beat sample was never cleared.

Whew, chillay.
