Although Kanye West attended the Super Bowl on Sunday, his weekend was mainly spent on Instagram taking shots at Pete Davidson and Kid Cudi.
Kanye West‘s newest tirade lasted all weekend. It started on Saturday, with a now-deleted Instagram post, where Kanye West announced that he would be removing Kid Cudi from DONDA 2. It appears that the decision was made because Cudi is pals with Pete Davidson, who’s currently dating Ye’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
“Just so everyone knows Cudi will not be on Donda because he’s friends with you know who,” Kanye West, also taking a jab at fellow Coachella headliner Billie Eilish. “We all speak in Billie language now,” he added.
Cudi swiftly responded to his Kids See Ghosts collaborator in the post’s comments section. “Too bad I dont wanna be on ur album u f—in dinosaur hahaha,” he responded. “everyone knows ive been the best thing about ur albums since i met u. Ima pray for you brother.”
Cudi also referenced Ye’s tirade in a series of tweets:
During the social media back-and-forth, Ye doubled down on his feelings of betrayal in another now-deleted Instagram post. In the image, which appears to be from awhile back, Ye stands at a table beside Timothée Chalamet, Cudi and Davidson, who’s face is X’d out.
“I JUST WANTED MY FRIEND TO HAVE MY BACK THE KNIFE JUST GOES IN DEEPER,” Ye wrote.
Ye followed the post with his face and Davidson’s superimposed on a Venom: Let There Be Carnage poster. Beside Ye are superimposed images of Drake, Julia Fox, Travis Scott, and Future while Kim Kardashian, Kid Cudi, Billie Eilish, and Taylor Swift stand beside Davidson on the opposite side. While calling Davidson “Skete”, Ye also made a sideswipe at Machine Gun Kelly.
“This aint about Skete people it’s about selling yall a narrative Skete just playing his part in Frozen 3 accept its not in the theaters this time its on Dailey Mail [sic] tell Bob and the entire Disney staff you waisted your money on StarWars [sic] and Marvel because even though it makes money you will never control the highschools [sic] no ones ever heard a Machine Gun Kelly song Bob,” Ye wrote.
Like Ye’s other Instagram posts from the weekend, the ‘Marvel’ image has been deleted.
Prior to attending the Super Bowl on Sunday, Ye continued taking aim at Davidson on Instagram. “LOOK AT THIS D–KHEAD,” wrote beneath a pap photo of Davidson and Kardashian. “I WONDER IF INSTAGRAM GONNA SHUT DOWN MY PAGE FOR DISSING HILARY CLINTON’S EX BOYFRIEND.”
“THE REASON I ASKED CUDI TO AT THE LEAST SPEAK TO SKETE IS BECAUSE FOR YEARS CUDI ALWAYS MADE IT SEEM LIKE IT WAS ME AND HIM AGAINST EVERYONE,” Ye wrote. “NOW THAT IM FIGHTING FOR MY FAMILY HE NOT BY MY SIDE THIS IS BIGGER THAN MUSIC.”
In another post, Ye went on a tangent about controlling his narrative. “When I get on my Gram Im not afraid to get sweaty or take a hit for my family this is not a rant this is called freedom of speech I am a form of media Bezos bought The Wall Street Journal and will still never have this level of influence no matter how many dinners he does with my wife and Sketer and Page Six stop using bad photos of me yall that whole office would die to go on a date,” he stated.
After finding that he was a trending topic during the Super Bowl — which he attended — he made a post geared at Kardashian, telling her to “always remember West was your biggest W”.
“For everyone married hold your spouse close make sure they know how much you love and appreciate them because theres a Skete lurking in every dirty ass alley waiting to help destroy your family and walk around in Calvin Kleins around your children I wish my wife was with me and our children sitting at the 50 yard line,” he wrote.
Although he had gripes with unauthorized Netflix documentary Jeen-Yuhs, Ye appeared at the film’s LA premiere last Friday, revealing that people were attempting to cancel him and DaBaby. He also shared that Apple Music offered him $100 million to release DONDA.
