Talib Kweli believes Kanye's competition with Drake is a big part of why Ye's been so off lately.

During a stop on Drink Champs, the Black Star rapper spoke on a studio session he had with Kanye a while back during which Kanye admitted proximity to Drake had seriously messed with his energy.

“He says to me, not in his house but in the studio, how living in Calabasas while Drake was there was hard on him. Because he felt the competitive energy, and how when Drake moved away, he had this creative rush. Which to me, I’m like ‘Yo, how you let this next man affect your energy?

"This is something I felt, but I didn’t speak on at the time," Kweli said. "Now I see how the years play out. Kanye wants to be #1. He wants to be talked about all the time and he spent all of last year talking about how dope Drake was in every interview. 'Drake's the number one rapper. Drake's the number one rapper.' I feel like he’s triggered by Drake. He’s triggered by Obama calling him a jackass. And I feel like he just wants to be liked, and he’s misinformed.”

Do you think there's anything to this?
