Kanye West called Cardi B an industry plant sent to replace Nicki Minaj in leaked documentary footage.

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."

"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.
