Purported Kanye West Documentary Footage Leaks
On Sunday, leaked documentary footage from 2018 shows Kanye West downplaying Cardi's success by claiming she is an industry plant put in place to replace Nicki Minaj.
"Cardi B is a plant by the illuminati," Kanye casually says in the clip below. "She don't write her own raps. She just there to sound as ignorant as possible. And then makes songs like 'f**k 'em and then get some money,'" Ye adds, referring to Cardi's verse on G-Eazy's "No Limit (Remix)."
He continues: "She literally replaced Nicki Minaj. Purposely, they put her there. And now, she doesn't know what to do. She has no idea what the f**k is going on. She thinks it's just a blessing from the Universe. Ain't no blessing from the f**king Universe."
The entire documentary has since leaked and can be found on Twitter. However, XXL is unable to share due to copyright. Despite his apparent beliefs about Cardi in 2018, Ye collaborated with Offset's wife on the single "Hot S**t" with Lil Durk in 2022.
