Canadian rapper Drake previewed a new track, titled “KMT,” on January 28, 2017. The song featured a guest appearance from a British rapper Giggs in Amsterdam. The song, following its preview, was compared by users on social media to XXXTentacion’s breakout song “Look at Me!” due to the similar flow. Before the release of KMT, HotNewHipHop revealed that Drake followed XXXTentacion’s account on Twitter. In an interview with XXL, XXXTentacion was questioned about the Drake comparisons, responding “If Drake is gonna take the flow, and I don’t know if he legitimately did, but if that is the situation, at least reach out to a nigga, help a nigga out in this situation.”
Drake released the mixtape More Life on March 18, 2017, which included “KMT”. XXXTentacion was released from jail on probation two weeks later and was subsequently interviewed by WMIB, where he called Drake a “bitch” and said that he respected Drake’s influence but felt like “KMT” was disrespecting him. The following day on Twitter, XXXTentacion posted a picture of Drake’s mother saying “she could get it”. He then posted a picture of Drake’s mother and a child version of Drake with XXXTentacion’s face photoshopped over that of Drake’s father, Dennis Graham. Later in an interview with DJ Semtex, Drake denied those accusations that he stole XXXTentacion s “flow”. Drake also denied knowing him and said that he only heard about him regarding rumors circulated following the “KMT” snippet. XXXTentacion replied on his Twitter page requesting that Drake “come to Florida”, after XXXTentacion saying that he won’t “twitter rap with niggas”. XXXTentacion then claimed on Instagram live that he could “out-rap” Drake.
Rapper Offset from the hip-hop group Migos used Instagram’s livestream feature to verbally attack XXXTentacion further escalating the feud. 600Breezy, a Chicago rapper (who is currently in prison for violating his probation) then claimed that Drake gave him permission to enter into the feud and attack XXXTentacion. 600Breezy told XXXTentacion that he has “got a couple niggas that will knock you off in your own city”. 600Breezy later went to Florida to attempt to search for him, though it was fruitless.
Following XXXTentacion being knocked unconscious on stage in San Diego, Drake liked a post on Instagram ridiculing him.
XXXTentacion’s Twitter account posted explicit photos of Drake on February 25, 2018. XXXTentacion’s instagram account also posted “IF ANYONE TRIES TO KILL ME IT WAS [Drake] IM SNITCHING [right now].” He later claimed the account was hacked in a YouTube video titled “UPDATE, JUST CHECKING IN (VLOG).” XXXTentacion traded insults with former collaborator Trippie Redd on social media following reports Trippie Redd worked with Drake on the song “God’s Plan.” Trippie and XXXTentacion resolved their feud shortly afterwards in March 2018.
