Can’t write her own raps, Illuminati member, took Nicki Minaj’s place: Kanye West criticizes Cardi B
Ye claims in the video that Cardi B is a “plant by the Illuminati.”
A video starring a rapper formerly known as Kanye West, now known as Ye, has gone viral on the site formerly known as Twitter, now known as X, in which the rapper expresses his dissatisfaction with record labels by leaking his contract with the Universal Music Group.
In the video, which appears to be a documentary snippet, the rapper takes aim at Cardi B and Atlantic Records, claiming that Cardi B is a “plant by the Illuminati” in his inimitable style.
“She doesn’t write her raps,” Ye says. She’s only there to appear as clueless as possible. She purposefully replaced Nicki Minaj… She thinks it’s a cosmic blessing, but it ain’t no f***** blessing.”
Cardi B wasn’t the only artist targeted by Ye in the documentary. In another video, he accuses Tayana Taylor, Nas, and Pusha T of being ungrateful for not “appreciating” his assistance. “The _____ I’m doing is giving to f________ Teyana,” he explained. What the f________ am I doing giving Pusha the DAYTONA album? I gave away three Dark Fantasies as the s_______. Cops shoot the kid, Nas raps all God damn offbeat on it, doesn’t want to shoot a video, then shoots the video, doesn’t even tell me. These m____f_______ don’t like me. All these m_____f_____ are attempting to take advantage of me.”
Cardi B responded to Ye’s criticism by sharing another video of him praising her on X (formerly known as Twitter). Ye says in the video, “I’ve always believed in her since she was on the show.” West appeared to be referring to the reality show Love & Hip-Hop: New York.
Cardi B is currently working on her much-anticipated sophomore album, which is set to be released next year. Kanye West has a long history of saying the most outrageous things at the most inopportune times. He interrupted Taylor Swift’s MTV VMA speech for Best Female Video Award a few years ago by declaring that Beyonce was better.
He was chastised for supporting Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign and then calling slavery a “choice.”
