Drake has denied reports he is feuding with former collaborator Kanye West, insisting he can't wait to get back in the studio with the hip-hop heavyweight.

The 26-year-old Canadian star had previously branded West his "competitor" and admitted it was his goal to "be better" than the Stronger hitmaker, leading fans to believe they had fallen out.

But according to Drake, the alleged dispute was exaggerated, and he is adamant he still idolises West.

He tells Billboard magazine, "Me and 'Ye (West) just fell into this thing where we hadn't actually talked to each other in so long that all this stuff got built up. Sometimes you just have to find the opportunity to tell someone that you really like and respect them. After that, everything can move forward."

The Best I Ever Had hitmaker hopes one day he and West will work together again, adding, "Hopefully we give the world what they want, because I know they want it. I know me and 'Ye could do some crazy s**t together."
