Fueling reports he dated Kylie Jenner shortly after her spilt from Travis Scott, Drake has apologized for referring to the makeup mogul as his "side-piece" on an unreleased song he streamed for fans online.

During an Instagram Live hosted by the Night Owl Sound's IG account on Wednesday (May 20), The 6 God named Kylie Jenner as a "side piece" in a track with Future.

It was a song that was scrapped three years ago but Drake felt that he should publicly apologise to the reality star for the slur. "He was just going too deep in the drake/future catalogue" he continued.

"Last thing I would want to do is wake up having any friends of mine feeling disrespected so I just had to say that to start off the day".

Drake speaks out on his Kylie Jenner "side piece" lyric on Instagram. Do you think she gave Drake a call about it? At the time a source explained to Hollywood Life that the duo was not prepared for a relationship.

While certainly not the most respectful lyrics, it's probably a good thing Drake never released the song, especially considering he and Kylie were rumored to have dated past year. Sporting a ridiculously snug white jumpsuit to accentuate her world famous curves, Kylie went braless for a series of racy snaps for her 177 million followers to see.

Drake, who has known the Kardashian-Jenner family for some years and even performed at Kylie's 16th birthday, reportedly downplayed rumours last year that they could become an item.
