Outkast rapper André 3000 released a statement after Drake leaked a new song with Kanye West, which was never supposed to be released to the public.

On track, "Life of the Party," fires off several shots at Drake.

"A few weeks ago Kanye reached out about me being a part of the Donda album. I was inspired by his idea to make a musical tribute to his mom. It felt appropriate to me to support the Donda concept by referencing my own mother, who passed away in 2013," the statement to Rolling Stone reads.

DRAKE'S 'CLB' INTRO?

"We both share that loss. I thought it was a beautiful choice to make a clean album but, unfortunately, I didn't know that was the plan before I wrote and recorded my verse. It was clear to me that an edited 'clean' format of the verse would not work without having the raw, original also available. So, sadly, I had to be omitted from the original album release. The track I received and wrote to didn't have the diss verse on it and we were hoping to make a more focused offering for the Donda album but I guess things happen like they are supposed to."

Drake has not responded to the statement.
