Kanye West has lost a lot of deals and a ton of money, and yet he still will not stop talking.
West is once again trending for making wild allegations, as he claimed LeBron James, Jay-Z and Beyonce are among various celebrities “controlled” by the powers that be, and that his mother and Michael Jordan’s father were both “sacrifices.”
The 45-year-old legendary rapper was answering a paparazzo’s questions from inside a vehicle when he went on a rant about how he cannot be controlled while naming others who are being controlled.
“They can’t control me. They can control Shaq, they can control Charles Barkley, they can control LeBron James, they can control Jay-Z and Beyonce,” West said. “But they can’t control me. Ain’t no name I won’t name. It’s up.”
West continued his rant by talking about Hollywood sacrifices.
“My momma [Donda West] was sacrificed,” West said. “Michael Jordan, what about him? His dad, right? Bill Cosby, his son, right? Dr. Dre, his son. Out here in Hollywood, a lot of people come up missing. Feels like it might be a lot of that in order to control, traumatize.
“They wanna monetize and traumatize. And God love me. They hit me. GAP, Adidas, all that away. Still, Forbes, who hate me, had to write, ‘Net worth: $400 million.'”
Michael Jordan’s dad was killed on July 23, 1993, when he was sleeping in his car in North Carolina. His body was found over a week later in a swamp, which was shortly after Michael won his third NBA title with the Chicago Bulls.
Larry Demery, along with former classmate Daniel Green, was sentenced in 1996 for killing James. Green, who has long said he’s innocent, was sentenced to life in prison plus 10 years. Demery was sentenced to life in prison plus 40 years after he pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, armed robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.
West finally finished up his latest rant by saying that he can say whatever he wants and not go to jail because he hasn’t killed anyone.
“This truth is gonna be heard,” West said. “Ya’ll can’t send none of ya’ll Meek Mills, ya’ll Puffies, ya’ll Lil Boosies, none of these names, none of these people that have to listen to ya’ll because they have legal [issues].
“I never killed nobody, right? I’m the pu–y that never killed nobody, right? But that means I could say whatever I want and not go to jail.”
West continues to get himself into trouble with every word he says, but he does not sound like a man who plans on stopping anytime soon.
