Kanye West Claims Cardi B Is an Industry Plant Sent by Illuminati to Replace Nicki Minaj in Leaked Documentary Video
Ye Believes Cardi B Is Industry Plant
On Sunday (Oct. 1), footage of a purported Kanye West documentary from 2018 found its way to the internet. In the clip, Ye is speaking to someone on the phone about his thoughts about Cardi B's place in the game.
"That's why Cardi B is over there. Cardi B is a plant by the illuminati," Kanye casually says in the leaked video, which XXL is unable to share due to copyright. The entire documentary has since leaked and can be found on Twitter.
"She don't write her own raps," Ye continues. "She just there to sound as ignorant as possible. And then makes songs like 'f**k 'em and then get some money,'" Ye adds, referencing 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."
Cardi B Responds to Ye Footage
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. In the interview below, 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.
Kanye's comments came five years before he collaborated with Cardi B on the single "Hot S**t" with Lil Durk in 2022.
