Kanye West has accused rapper Drake of threatening “the safety of my family” in a bizarre Twitter rant that is showing no signs of stopping.
West has posted more than 100 tweets (and counting) directed at the Canadian rapper, accusing him of everything from talking to mother-in-law Kris Jenner behind his back and claiming “there would never be a Drake without a Kanye”.

The feud, which has been one-sided so far, began when West shared a text message from his friend Free claiming Drake had asked to sample one of his songs.
The request, which TMZ reports did come from Drake’s camp, sent West into a tweeting frenzy.
West and Drake’s differences are believed to have begun when details of the Canadian rapper’s secret son were made public in May.
Drake is said to have taken issue with West’s rapping protege Pusha T, who released a diss track outing that the former Degrassi star has a son.
West denied Pusha found out about Drake’s son though him and in September apologised to Drake.
But later that month West posted an Instagram video demanding an apology from Drake for not speaking up to deny a false social media theory that Kim Kardashian and the Canadian rapper had an affair.
The elaborate Twitter theory, which was based on Drake’s song In My Feelings and debunked by Kardashian herself, was supported by Nick Cannon and Tyson Beckford who West also slammed for giving the rumour airtime.
