Kim Kardashian Facing Huge Backlash For Tweets About Kanye
Keep this tab open and go get yourself a drink. Hot, cold, doesn’t really matter. When you’ve got it, sit down, settle in, and get ready to feast your eyes on one of the most bizarre Twitter wars of all time.
Think Kim, Kanye, Kanye’s charity – now owned by his (former) friend and fellow rapper Rhymefest, Drake, Pusha-T and more. This really is quite something.
So. Now you’re settled down, let’s begin. This whole farcical festival began with an Instagram post by Pusha-T, a rapper signed to Kanye’s record label, GOOD music. The tweet in question was promoting his new album which features Drake diss track, Infrared.
In the track, Pusha-T raps:
It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin / At the mercy of a game where the culture’s missing.
The line referenced Quentin Miller – a ghost writer who’s rumoured to have written many of Drake’s songs – for which he’s been criticised by many in the past, reports Buzzfeed.
Part two. Drake hits back instantaneously with his own diss track against Pusha-T, in which he threatens to send an invoice to GOOD music. He then did. A $100,000 invoice for ‘promotional assistance and career reviving’.
Not only that, but in the same diss track, Drake also hit out at Kanye saying:
So if you rebuke me for working with someone else on a couple of Vs / What do you really think of the n**** that’s making your beats?
I’ve done things for him I thought that he never would need / Father had to stretch his hands out and get it from me / I pop style for 30 hours, then let him repeat.
Said lyrics seem to suggest Drake wrote numerous lines for Kanye so what does it matter if Quentin wrote some for him?
Now, all of this was said in the past two weeks but now we have much more fuel to add to this preposterous fire.
The invoice Drake sent Pusha-T prompted Che ‘Rhymefest’ Smith, the co-founder of Donda’s House – a charity named after Kanye’s late mother – to ask Drake for some help to fund the not-for-profit charity.
Rhymefest claimed despite the charity, (which aims to help the youth of Chicago, being set up by Kanye and named after his mother), Kanye had distanced himself from it and even said ‘f*ck the youth of Chicago’.

And then, of course, Kim Kardashian just had to get herself involved, posting a series of tweets:
But of course, people weren’t too happy with Kim for calling out Rhymefest’s ‘fake Yeezys’ and claiming nobody knows him – despite him asking for money for a charity:
Rhymefest himself also responded – very professionally indeed – in a letter addressing all of her points stating that personally, he doesn’t care if people don’t know him, that he was personally mentored by Donda, that Kim has never had any involvement in the charity, and that Kanye quite happily takes praise for the charity’s work, despite himself having nothing to do with it.
Then, out of nowhere, Donda’s House responded claiming they’d decided to change their name after Kim’s outburst:
A second statement by the charity also claimed:
We ask that as you boycott and protest Kanye West, that you not forget that we are a non-profit organisation that, like other non-profits, needs donations, corporate support, and volunteers.
We do not want your rejection of Kanye West, to be a rejection of Dr Donda West and the thousands of lives she impacted including her own son.
And then Kim responded again:
To say this all got out of hand has got to be a contender for understatement of the year.
