According to The Shade Room, the 44-year-old took to Instagram to share a since-deleted address in Toronto, Canada, that is believed to be Drake’s.
Unfazed, the "In My Feelings" rapper, 34, shared a video of himself laughing during a joyride — seemingly in response to West doxing him — hours later.
The alleged shots come on the heels of Drake (real name: Aubrey Drake Graham) appearing on Trippie Redd’s new song “Betrayal”, where the Degrassi: The Next Generation alum raps, “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know/ Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go/ Ye ain’t changin’ s**t for me, it’s set in stone.”
After “Betrayal” dropped, West shared a screenshot of a group text message with seven other people on Instagram. Alongside a photo of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker, West allegedly wrote, “I live for this. I’ve been f****d with by nerd ass jock n****s like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you.” Many believe the text thread was in response to Drake's verse.
Drake and West have a long-storied history. Though the two have publicly feuded via diss tracks, things heated up in September 2018. The "Good Morning" rapper took issue with the “Kiki, do you love me” line in Drake’s “In My Feelings” as Kim Kardashian — who West is currently in the midst of a divorce from — goes by the nickname Kiki. (At the time, there had been circulating rumors that the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star had an affair with Drake, which she denied.)

“What I’m looking for, for my spirit to take accountability, is the fact that it’s people making rumors that are saying you f—ked my wife, well that don’t sit well with my spirit,” West seethed in clips shared on Instagram at the time. "If I had a girlfriend from Chicago and her name was Rinita and you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make a song called Riri. So when you were like, ‘Aw I don’t know where it come from,’ you too smart for that bro. You know where that come from.”
A month later, Drake revealed on HBO’s The Shop that he believed West was responsible for leaking the news that he had a son he was hoping to keep out of the spotlight. (Drake and Sophie Brussaux share 3-year-old Adonis.)
West took to Twitter in December 2018 to declare he needed an apology from the Canadian crooner, while insisting he had nothing to do with news of Drake's child circulating: "It’s all love bro but don’t play with me. You stay too close to be playing all these industry games bro. Sending purple emojis when I’m dealing with mental s–t. I need my apologies now.”
That same month, West expressed his rage after he found out Drake was following Kardashian on social media. "Imagine having a problem with somebody and they follow your wife on Instagram,” the father-of-four — who shares North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, with the reality star — wrote in a series of since-deleted tweets. “Who’s [sic] bright idea was it to tell Drake to follow my wife on Instagram ? This person is not [Drake’s] friend.”
Meanwhile, as West continues to work on his upcoming album Donda, things seem to be turning a corner in his split from Kardashian. The two were spotted enjoying lunch in Malibu on August 19, days after OK! revealed the KKW Beauty founder was growing impatient with her estranged husband dragging his feet amid their divorce.
