Kanye West was once not a fan of Cardi B. Despite being featured on Cardi’s single “Hot Sh*t” with Lil Durk, in leaked footage from a 2008 documentary, Ye called Cardi B an “industry plant” created by the Illuminati to take Nicki Minaj’s spot.
In one video, the Chicago legend is sitting on a couch going through a magazine and speaking on Corey Gamble being a part of the CIA and claiming Cardi B is an “industry plant” that took over Nicki Minaj’s spot.
“Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati,” Ye said.
“She don’t write her raps. She just there to sound as ignorant as possible and then make songs like, ‘fuck them and get some money.’ She has literally replaced Nicki Minaj, purposely that they put her there, and now she doesn’t know what to do, and she has no idea what the fuck is going on. She thinks it’s just a blessing from the universe. It ain’t no blessing from the universe.”
Cardi B has responded to the leaked video by sharing another clip of Ye talking to Hollywood Unlocked’s Jason Lee in an interview from January of 2022, where Ye praises Cardi B.
“I always believed in her, since she was on the show, period” Kanye tells Lee in the sit-down. Cardi captioned the post with a heart emoji.
