Drake is about to reignite his long-standing feud with Kanye West.
The Toronto-born rapper released a new song titled “Search & Rescue” in which he samples audio of Kim Kardashian talking about her divorce from West in the 2021 series finale of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
“I didn’t come this far just to come this far and not be happy. Remember that,” the reality star said on the E! show — and now Drake’s new tune, which hit streaming services Friday after being teased on SiriusXM’s Sound 42 last week.
Fans have also speculated that Drake, 36, included a Kardashian look-alike on the track’s cover art featuring him and a woman in helmets.
The inclusion of the “Kardashians” star’s dialogue in “Search & Rescue” appears to be a very intentional decision, as Drake and the Skims founder were once rumored to have hooked up.

Kardashian has denied the speculation, and even West, 45, confirmed the two never had a dalliance.
The disgraced fashion designer did, however, accuse the “Nice for What” rapper of acting like he slept with his ex-wife.
“You acted like you did,” he said on “Drink Champs” in November 2021. “It’s like somebody throwing a marble and hiding their hand.”
The inclusion will likely taunt West, with whom Drake has been rivals for years.

When West — who since has moved on with “wife” Bianca Censori — let the Drake-Kardashian rumors die, he eventually moved on to claim the “Degrassi” alum had sex with his ex-wife’s mom, Kris Jenner, whose voice is also featured on “Search & Rescue.”
The famed momager never acknowledged her former son-in-law’s unsubstantiated claims.
In October 2022, West appeared to let bygones be bygones after Drake “liked” one of his Instagram posts.
The Skims founder previously denied having sex with Drake.

“EVERYONE KNOWS ME AND DRAKE HAVE HAD A RIVALRY IN THE PAST IT REALLY WARMED MY HEART TO SEE DRAKE LIKE ONE OF MY POST [sic],” Ye wrote on Instagram in the middle of a posting spree following his controversial Paris Fashion Week show, where he wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt.
“WE STILL NEED THE DONDA TEAM TO PLAY NOCTA ALL DRAKE MUSIC WILL BE PLAYED AT DONDA GAMES MOVING FORWARD,” he continued, referring to his Donda Academy’s basketball team.
Since then, the school has shut down following West’s anti-Semitic tirades.
