“A song that mark ran last night on night owl sound live set shouldn’t have been played,” the Canadian rapper, 33, wrote on his Instagram Story on Thursday. “It’s a song that leaked 3 years ago and got scrapped shortly after."
"He was just going too deep in the drake/future catalogue [sic]. Last thing I’d want to do is wake up having any friends of mine feeling disrespected so I just had to say that to start the day.”
In the unreleased track, which features fellow rapper Future, the “Degrassi” alum stirred rumors he forged a romance with Jenner when he rapped, “Yeah, I’m a hater to society / Real s---, Kylie Jenner is a side-piece / Yeah, I got 20 motherf--king Kylies,” according to Page Six.
Drake also referenced Jenner’s sister Kendall as well as supermodel Gigi Hadid.
“Yeah, I got 20 d--- Kendalls / Young slim baddies and they in vogue / Yeah, I got 20 f--kin’ Gigis.”
For the misstep, Drake was lambasted for playing the record by fans of Jenner, 22, which prompted him to issue his walk back.
Though Drake alleges the song originally leaked some three years ago, insiders relayed to the outlet in December that Drake and Jenner actually had been an item, albeit briefly – only to call off their romance after media speculation of their romance continued brewing.
