Kanye West is known for saying some of the most outrageous things, but in his latest rant, he dished out some of his craziest conspiracy theories.
Kanye’s mother, Donda West, died in 2007 after undergoing several cosmetic procedures the day before. Her official cause of death was listed as “coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors.” The surgeon that performed the operation stated that the surgery went fine.
Donda, 58, went to Dr. Jan Adams for liposuction, a tummy tuck, and a breast reduction. Jan Adams was already in danger of getting his medical license revoked due to two medical malpractice lawsuits filed against him and was also under review by the Medical Board of California because of several alcohol-related arrests.
Donda had significant health issues at the time of surgery, including high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and cardiac artery damage. She had previously gone to another surgeon to get the procedures done and was turned away due to her high risk of having a heart attack.
After Donda’s death, then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a new law that made it mandatory for patients to receive a complete medical exam and clearance before receiving any elective cosmetic surgery.
Kanye West says he can’t be controlled like Jay-Z and Beyonce
Kanye didn’t just speak of his mother in the clip. He also said that he would not be controlled by the entities that have power over some of his fellow celebrities.
Kanye explained, “My momma ain’t here. My momma was sacrificed. You can’t send none of ya’ll Meek Mills, ya’ll Puffy’s, ya’ll Lil Boosie’s. None of those people that have to listen to ya’ll. I never killed nobody. I’m the pu**y that never killed nobody. But that means I can say whatever I want.”
Kanye also said, “I can say whatever I want and not go to jail. They can’t control me; you get what I’m saying? They can control Shaq. They can control Charles Barkley. They can control LeBron James. They can control Jay-Z and Beyonce, but they can’t control me.” It is unclear who the “they” Kanye speaks of actually are.
Kanye even mentioned Minister Louis Farrakhan saying, “I love you, but I don’t care who you are.” Minister Farrakhan spoke publicly about the controversy behind Kanye’s infamous antisemitic remarks.
Minister Farrakhan actually defended Kanye on his podcast, along with disgraced and suspended NBA player Kyrie Irving, for their antisemitic remarks. He also defended Kanye back in October for the comments, saying that Kanye doesn’t owe anyone an apology.
Kanye West names other deaths that he feels are sacrifices
Kanye doesn’t feel like his mother was the only one that was sacrificed. He mentioned a few others that he felt were similarly sacrificed.
Kanye mentioned the death of Michael Jordan’s father, James Jordan, who was shot during a car robbery in 1993. Daniel Andre Green shot James while he slept in the car his son bought for him and then stole the vehicle.
Kanye also mentioned Bill Cosby’s son Ennis Cosby who died in 1997 during a failed robbery attempt, and Dr. Dre’s son Andre Young Jr. Andre was found dead of a heroin and morphine overdose in 2008.
Dave Chapelle roasted Kanye West on SNL over antisemitic comments
Controversial comedian Dave Chapelle found himself on SNL over the weekend and he decided to discuss Kanye’s recent antisemitic comments. The funnyman started his monologue by reading from a note, “I denounce antisemitism in all its forms, and I stand with my friends in the Jewish community.” He then joked, “And that, Kanye, is how you buy yourself some time.”
Chapelle also mocked Kanye for his comments, remonstrating with the rapper for not being more private about his opinions. He said, “It’s not a crazy thing to think, but it’s a crazy thing to say out loud in this climate.”
Kanye has lost billions after he made antisemitic comments with advertisers running a mile away from the controversial rapper. He’s lost deals with Adidas, Foot Locker, Gap, Vogue, Balenciaga, and many more.More: Kanye West
