Kanye West recently revealed that he is not allowed to mention Drake's name or the names of any of his family member's during an interview on David Letterman’s 'My Next Guest Needs No Introduction' which airs on Netflix.

 “An artist which I will not mention, because I’m not allowed to mention him or any of his family members,” Kanye said of Drake according to the Daily Beast. “Well, we had a little beef last year.” 

Kanye was caught in the middle of a rap beef between Drake and Pusha T, when Pusha let the world know that Drake fathered a son with a porn star. He also revealed the name of Drake's son - which foiled plans that Drake had to reveal his son's name in an Adidas collection launch.

“He has this line that I love that says, ‘I told my story and made history’—like made his story and made history. That’s what we do, we tell our story, and then people relate to that story.” But then, he adds, people latch onto that story and get mad when it goes in a direction they don’t expect.

“I have a friend who told me that my power is my influence,” Kanye added. “And I said my power is my ability to not be influenced.”

The episode will air this Friday on May 3.
