Kanye West is in the midst of another tweet storm that touches on his ongoing drama with drake, his mental health, how he perceives his medication's effects on his music -- and Ariana Grande.

On Thursday (Dec. 13), West went off on Drake after the "God's Plan" rapper expressed an interest in sampling "Say What's Real," a 2009 cut off his So Far Gone mixtape that West produced.

The ensuing flurry of tweets -- which came in two bursts -- brought up latent drama regarding Drake and Pusha T's exchanged diss tracks that stretched over the summer of 2018, along with a few bars with barbs directed at West (and his sneakers -- specifically his Yeezy Boost 350s).

After a brief break, West picked back up with the stream of consciousness tweets on Saturday morning (Dec. 15). In the midst of his lengthy screed on Thursday, Grande commented that "grown men [are] arguing online rn" and that the drama had the potential to distract from the drop of new songs of by her and Miley Cyrus: "if y'all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that'd be so sick thank u."

West's response? He's not interested in "even the slightest commentary from someone I know loves and respects me."
