Kanye West calls Drake a 'rap god' at Toronto's 'Yeezus' tour stop

By Gina DiFalco,

It’s difficult to get a compliment from Kanye West, unless you’re his fiancé Kim Kardashian, but he paid his respects to fellow rapper Drake on Sunday night.

West’s Yeezus tour stopped at Drake’s native Canada, and the “Started From the Bottom” rapper showed up to Toronto's Air Canada Centre to show his support.

"I want to thank the rap god Drake for coming out tonight," West told the crowd, MTV News reports.

Back in August, North West’s dad also paid respect to Drake at the OVO Fest. "As I stand in this city right now, I just want y'all to understand that it's been a lot of rappers that came in the game that wasn't able to do something like this for their city," he said at the time. "Me and Hov would've never made Watch the Throne if this n---- wasn't putting pressure on us like that, so I just wanna pay my respects."

After he said that, Drake called it “probably the most important moment in my career to date.”

He also told MTV, "I think me and Kanye have wanted to express our respect for each other for a long time and sometimes rap, the business, the competitiveness and just the heart behind it forces you to not talk to the people you quietly admire."

Drake posted a photo of West from his concert on his Instagram page, writing, “Guess the money shoulda changed him.”
