If the world didn't already know what rapper Kanye West thinks about fellow rapper Drake — they probably know it now.

West unleashed more than 100 tweets Thursday night into Friday morning on a range of topics, but mainly about his feud with Drake — including allegations that Drake threatened West and his family.

"Drake called trying to threaten me," West tweeted at one point.

Earlier, West wrote: "You threaten the safety of me and my family."

"Leave me and my family alone bro," he added in another tweet.

Earlier in the evening, West tweeted that "you are disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions so this is an opportunity for growth."

It was unclear if that West message referred to Drake, but many of the tweets in West's Twitter thread referred to him, including another saying "Drake I'm not going to physically fight you like it's MTV boxing."

West also claimed a measure of seniority over Drake in the rap music scene.

"There would never be a drake without a Kanye west so never come out your mouth with a threat," West tweeted. Whether the rendering of Drake's name in lower case was intentional was unknown.

West continued to state his displeasure with Drake texting his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, collaborating with rapper Travis Scott (sister-in-law Kylie Jenner's boyfriend) in a song that had "sneak disses" against West, and other grievances.

It wasn't clear on social media if Drake responded publicly to West.

But West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, stood by her husband in tweets posted early Friday.

"My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world," she wrote.

Pop star Ariana Grande, who is releasing a new single with Miley Cyrus, "Imagine," tweeted a response of her own in hopes the feud between the men wouldn't overshadow the women's music.

"guys, i know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and i dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y'all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that'd be so sick thank u," Grande tweeted on Thursday.

Thursday was also Taylor Swift's 29th birthday, sparking speculation on social media that West wanted to take attention away from her special day — after famously bolting onstage and trying to take an award away from Swift in September 2009.

"Kanye West goes on a rant on Taylor Swift's birthday. Coincidence?" user Willyonce tweeted with a gif saying "I THINK NOT!"

Eminem reignites Christina Aguilera feud on freestyle track, slammed for ‘vile’ lyrics

Eminem on Friday dropped an 11-minute freestyle rap that reignited his rivalry with pop star Christina Aguilera.

The Detroit rapper and the “Genie in a Bottle” singer’s rivalry began in 2000, when Eminem claimed in the song “The Real Slim Shady” Aguilera performed oral sex on then-“TRL” Carson Daly and rocker Fred Durst. He also lashed out at her for disapproving his lyrics against his then-wife Kimberly Scott.

Eminem brought back the feud last week with crude lyrics in the song “Kick Off.”

WARNING: GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

“F—k Christina with a plastic spoon. While I bump some G-funk and blast some Snoop. ‘Cause her double-G cups are massive, huge! It’s fun for me to just to grab a boob. Plus my penis got an attitude. My f—-n’ weiner’s in a combative mood,” he rapped.

The lyrics set social media alight, with plenty of people coming to the defense of Aguilera.

“Eminem being an irrespectful (sic) misogynist d–k to Christina Aguilera AGAIN almost 20 years later and even when she's a mother of two now is too low even for him,” one Twitter user said.

Aguilera wasn’t the only pop star in Eminem’s crosshairs. He also mentions Reese Witherspoon, Justin Bieber and touches on Ariana Grande and the Manchester bombing.

“Seeing Ariana Grande sing her last song of the evening. And as the audience from the damn concert is leaving. Detonates the device strapped to his abdominal region. I’m not gonna finish that for obvious reasons.”

Charlotte Hodgson, whose 15-year-old daughter died in the Manchester attack, slammed Eminem’s lyrics as “disgusting” and “disrespectful,” according to the Manchester Evening News.

“I didn't think anybody could do this and be so disrespectful to us all. It's vile and he is a vile human for doing it,” she told the newspaper.

“Why would anyone want to listen to it for entertainment? Ariana did a very respectful song in memory of everyone there and that was lovely, a fantastic gesture, as she was involved too, but why would people want to make money out of such an horrific event?”

Eminem hasn’t responded to the criticism.

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee blasts rapper Travis Scott for allegedly copying stage design

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee accused hip-hop star Travis Scott of ripping off two of his set ideas.

Lee, 56, shared two videos of Scott’s performance on Wednesday. The first featured the “Astroworld” rapper sitting in a chair while he makes a complete spin on a roller coaster track. Lee compared the action to himself spinning in a circle and performing on the drums during one of the band's tours.

“Just found out this f— idiot @travisscott or someone on his team ripped off the 360 AND The Crüecifly! WTF!!” he wrote in the scathing Instagram post. “Get an original idea bro…(swipe to see who did this s— first) BRB there’s more …”

Lee then shared another clip of Scott traveling on the roller coaster during one of his performances, while comparing it to one of his own performances. He claimed that Scott ripped him off twice.

Lee then said Scott was using the same company Motley Crue did to design the set. He used that fact to back up his claim that the rapper stole his ideas.

“And the plot thickens! After I and our production crew created the 360 and Crüecify, We hired a company called SGPS in Las Vegas to create it,” Lee said in a tweet. “WELLLLL GUESS WHO'S DOING TRAVIS'S SET DESIGN???? F**king SGPS! So all u motha—- tellin me I'm not right can f–k off."

Scott’s lawyer defended the “Astroworld” set in a statement to TMZ.

“Tommy didn’t invent the concept of a roller coaster on stage and there’s no legal basis for his accusatory outburst,” the lawyer said. “The actual creator and owner of the system has granted Travis all rights to use that equipment to complement his original stage design.”
