Kanye West and Drake are no strangers to controversy. The two had a long-standing beef that rivaled any in the hip-hop world. This all occurred as Ye’s marriage to Kim Kardashian was falling apart.

The rappers eventually figured out a way to squash the beef. They have been friendly since then. They even packed the Los Angeles Coliseum for Kanye’s “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert.”

Drizzy clearly feels a personal connection to Kanye and his music. A new video posted by DJ Akademiks on Instagram shows just how moved Drake is by his counterpart. As Kanye made his famous on-stage plea for Kardashian to come back to him, Drake openly cried.

The tearful footage reveals a softer side of both artists. The moment was considered controversial by some who believe West should just leave Kim alone. Drake felt it on a different level.

The footage came from Kerwin Frost’s video recapping the huge concert. It came together very quickly. Fans were stunned to see the two sharing the same stage.

The connection between Kanye West and Drake now has a face. It is a tearful Drake standing backstage as Ye belts out the song of a forlorn lover. Only true friends have that kind of reaction to such a ridiculous gesture.
