Kim Kardashian Goes OFF on Rhymefest: Keep Kanye’s Name Out of Your Mouth!!
This time, Rhymefest put out a statement for a charity in Kanye’s mother’s name, distancing the organization from Kanye’s MAGA views.
Kim Kardashian took to Twitter in a fury, putting Rhymefest on blast and vowing to take that charity out from under him.
Che Smith is better known by his stage name, Rhymefest.
He is an American hip hop artist, an award-winning songwriter, and a philanthropist. He is also a politician from Chicago.
He is cofounder of Donda’s House, a charity named after Dr. Donda West, Kanye’s late mother. As Snoop Dogg recently alluded, she passed away just over a decade ago.
Recently, Donda’s House put out a statement imploring people upset by Kanye’s Trump-support and other outlandish statements that they do not share his views.
“While we cannot and do not speak for Kanye West and his views, we can and will speak up for the youth that we serve.”
“We ask that as you boycott and protest Kanye West, that you not forget that we are a non-profit organization 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.”
The non-profit also accused Kanye of having not provided them with the desired financial support, despite alleged agreements to do so.
Kim sent out a series of angry tweets on Saturday in response.
“U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST.”
Hey, even fake Yeezys are closer to the real thing than plenty of people are willing to wear.
“You’re over [leveraging] Kanye’s name & asked Kanye to donate money to u so stop w your fake community politics & lies. Truth is you haven’t been able to sustain the foundation.”
That’s quite the claim.
“I saw you at our studio a few weeks ago so why didn’t you bring this up then @RHYMEFEST ? You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats. You have the audacity to use Kanye’s mom name to try to shed a negative light on Kanye.”
Some, Snoop Dogg included, have suggested in recent days that Kanye’s behavior would be better if his mother were still alive to talk sense into him.
“Oh and lastly your flight cancelled to Wyoming. You thought you were really worthy to be on this album.”
Kim concluded her roast with an “apology” to her followers that was really just shade.
“Sorry to all of my followers for flooding my timeline I know you have no idea who Rhymefest is.”
Rhymefest replied on Twitter, posting a full letter..
“Hey @KimKardashian good to hear from you. Here’s my response.”
We’ll give you the highlights.
He starts by explaining her attempted callouts about his presence at the studio and such. And then he gets personal.
“How can you criticize an organization that you’ve never physically been to OR that you’ve never even talked to the Executive Director or any of the team?”
He points out that, unlike Kim, he actually knew and had a relationship with Kanye’s mother.
“I actually knew and was mentored by Dr. Donda West personally and have met with and spoken to hundreds of her students and mentees who not only support the work that we are doing in Chicago, but compel it.”
He suggests that Kim is not getting the whole story of alleged broken promises that Kanye has made.
“At this point, if you and Kanye want us to dissolve the organization so that you can do the work, we welcome that.”
The way that he sees it, that would just mean more organizations helping young people.
“As we will continue from our home on the South Side of Chicago, to do what we can to support the community we’ve worked 5 years to build in spite of you & Kanye’s lack of interest or support.”
At the end, he writes that he awaits her decision, and:
“Our community will be okay, regardless.”
