Kanye West Is Still Saying Sh-t Like ‘Jesus Christ, Hitler, Ye’

Kanye West put himself alongside Hitler and Jesus Christ, and proclaimed he was on his “Farrakhan Don shit” in an unsettling, yet characteristic brain dump live-streamed during his Vultures album event in Las Vegas last night.

Video of the diatribe was captured by YesJulz on Instagram and later shared widely on social media. West took aim at an array of perceived foes and former friends, including Drake, Jay-Z, and Adidas, and continued his anti-semitic streak from last year, criticizing “Jewish n****s” who call these outbursts “episodes,” and claiming at various points that “Zionists” control hospitals and private schools.

“Who make the hospitals, though?” West said. “These are Zionists, n***a. This is what I’m trying to tell you. Jesus Christ, Hitler, Ye — third party, sponsor that, n***a. Bring your sponsorships to that.”

Elsewhere, West railed against his ostensible cancellation last year after his antisemitic remarks caused him to lose multiple creative and business partners. He singled out Hollywood super agent Ari Emmanuel for leading the pile on, and vented his frustrations Kering luxury group head François Pinault, Balenciaga creative director Demna, and LVMH chairman Bernard Arnault. 

“I put up one tweet and then Ari Emanuel put, ‘Oh we gotta drop this n***a and all n***as just watched,” West said. “The only n***a that had the Trump hat. The only n***a that went and got them billions. The only n***a that break through all kinds of ideas in fashion.”

A few minutes later, he said, “Drake, this is what you been waiting for. Jay-Z, this is what you been waiting for. Adidas, this is what you been waiting for. Kim, this is what you been waiting for.”

Along with the rant, West was reportedly still recording music for his new album, Vultures, during the event in Las Vegas last night. The album was expected to arrive today, Dec. 15, but it has yet to be released. Along with apparently finishing new music, West was struggling to clear Nicki Minaj’s verse for a song called “New Body,” which she recorded five years ago. He even shared screenshots on social media of their one-sided correspondence. But he was too little too late, or as Minaj raps in the leaked version: “Old n***a hit me and I said, “New body, who this?”

During a recent Instagram Live, Minaj addressed West’s request and explained her reason for declining it. “Chile, that train has left the station,” she said. “No disrespect in any way. I just put out a brand new album. Why would I put out a song that has been out for three years? Come on guys.”

Pink Friday 2, the latest album from Minaj and a follow-up to her 2010 debut, was released one week ago. The record features collaborations with J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, Future, and more. Minaj and West have not released an official collaboration since they appeared alongside 6ix9ine on “Mama” back in 2019.

In his texts to Minaj, which he shared on both Instagram and X (formerly Twitter), West wrote: “Hi it’s Ye, may I call you about clearing new body on the new album.” In the screenshot, taken from the rapper’s iPhone, the message was delivered in that iPhone-to-Android green text bubble. In the replies across platforms, fans joked that Minaj — an avid iPhone user — must have him blocked, or he must have the wrong phone number.

West has been hosting raves in anticipation of Vultures, his first musical release since his antisemitic spiral last year. Earlier this week, the rapper brought the listening event to Miami where he screened a version of “New Body” that only featured himself and Ty Dolla $ign.
