Drake referred to Kylie Jenner as his ‘side piece’ in an unreleased track.
Drake and Kylie Jenner have faced several dating rumors these past few months. After reports confirmed that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is no longer with Travis Scott, sources reportedly alleged that the two started a romantic link between them.
The rumors were never clarified, though. But, some publications argued that they are only good friends.
While the dating rumors seemingly calmed down, Drake and Kylie Jenner have become the center of many reports again since last week. As it happened, the ‘God’s Plan’ rapper reportedly called Kylie his “side piece,” according to Insider.
Drake mentioned Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid in a song
Taking to Instagram, Drake reportedly went live late last week on the platform under Night Owl Sound’s account. During the course of the video, the rapper played several of his unreleased tracks.
One of the songs, which featured Future, mentioned the Jenner sisters, along with their close friend, Gigi Hadid. As stated, the bars referred to Kylie as his “side-piece,” and he got “20 motherf***ing” of them.
The same bars are also heard when the lyrics mentioned Kendall and Gigi. In his rap, he said that he also got “20 damn Kendalls” and “20 f***ing Gigis.”

He published a written apology after
The day after the live video, Drake took his public apology to his personal Instagram account. He posted on his “stories,” explaining that he did not “intend” to play the track.
He continued to clarify that the song “leaked three years ago,” and got scrapped” after. The rapper then said that waking up to know that his friends would feel “disrespected” is the “last thing” that he would want. So, he said that he just “had to say” these things to start the new day.
Netizens slammed, criticized him because he is also friends with Travis Scott
After the “written apology” circulated on various platforms, several netizens shared their thoughts about the matter. Some are reportedly offended, considering that the song was written when Kylie Jenner was in her teenage years.
There are individuals who called him out and deemed him “creepy” for writing the lyrics. But, aside from considering his ties to Kylie and Kendall, other netizens went on to share that Drake is also friends with Travis Scott, who happens to be Kylie’s former partner.
As pointed out, the two rappers even did a joint project together. Nevertheless, Travis has yet to respond to the issue.
On the other hand, Kylie Jenner recently broke her silence, as per E!‘s source. The Kylie Cosmetics founder has “no hard feelings” about the matter or Drake. “She knows it old,” the source explained.
