It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years since Drake dropped his debut mixtape, So Far Gone and set out to dominate the hip hop game. Drizzy commemorated the anniversary of the project by sending some love to his sometimes nemesis, Kanye West.

“@kanyewest a decade ago I rapped over your beat cause you just made the best shit and even though you stay wildin on twitter these days I will never forget what you contributed to the game and my career,” he posted in a caption that acknowledged several other rappers on Wednesday.

The Anatomy of a Rap “Beef”: Here’s why Kanye West sent 80 tweets about Drake

Despite the kind words, Drake and Kanye West have been beefing for months, ever since Pusha T came for the Champagne Papi on his last album. Later, the feud escalated when Kanye went off over Drake allegedly insinuating that he had a relationship with his wife, Kim Kardashian West.

Looks like Drake is willing to set their differences aside when it comes to honoring the contribution Kanye has made to the music game.
