Kanye West is known for ruffling feathers.
From tipsily interrupting Taylor Swift during her VMA win in 2009, to saying “slavery was a choice,” earlier this year, the rapper and fashion designer is a glutton for controversy and always seems to be in the middle of some type of feud.
This time, it’s Drake and Nick Cannon that West is coming for:
West has collaborated with Drake in the past, while Cannon used to date West’s wife, Kim Kardashian-West.
West posted some videos on his Instagram account last week expressing his explicit concerns with both men talking about his wife and implying their sexual relations with her.
“First of all, I want to address Nick Cannon,” he said. “Like I understand that you used to date my wife, but in an interview, don’t mention my wife. If someone brings my wife up, you say, ‘Hey I respect that man, I’m not speaking on that.’ Don’t be making those suggestions.”
West then went on to reprimand Drake for letting the public think he had an affair with his wife by using Kim’s nickname Kiki, in his hit song, “In My Feelings.”
“The fact that it’s people making rumors or thinking that you f*cked my wife and you not saying nothing and you carrying it like that, that don’t sit well with my spirit,” he said. “You know if I had a girlfriend from Chicago and her name was Ranita and then you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called ‘Riri.’ So when you like, ‘aw I don’t know where it come from.’ You too smart for that bro. You know where the come from. Don’t make no record with nothing that can be confused.”
West then advised both Cannon and Drake to remember to keep his wife’s name out of their mouths.
“Don’t speak on nobody from my family — nothing that could be even mentioned with my wife, period,” he said. “We don’t have to talk again. I’m not giving no energy to that.”
Although Drake hasn’t publicly acknowledged West’s Instagram videos yet, Cannon released a response video on his Instagram to West just a day after he posted his videos, saying he had nothing but love and respect for him.
“I’ve never said anything disrespectful or harmful in my opinion to your marriage or your union — I salute it, keep it going,” he said. “But you’re not going to tell me what I can and can’t say.”
But, in a sit down radio interview with Real 92.3 LA just this morning, Nick Cannon back-tracked his previous statements, saying he empathized with “Yeezy” a little bit more.
“I understand his scenario all the way,” Cannon said. “I felt that way when Eminem was talking crazy about my wife. Like, and so I understood that OK, he’s being like the patriarch and the protector in the moment.”
