Kanye West was once not a fan of Cardi B. In leaked footage from a 2008 documentary, Ye called Cardi B an “industry plant” created by the Illuminati to take Nicki Minaj’s spot.
“Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati,” Ye said. “She don’t write her raps. She just there to sound as ignorant as possible and then make songs like, ‘fuck them and get some money.’ She has literally replaced Nicki Minaj, purposely that they put her there, and now she doesn’t know what to do, and she has no idea what the fuck is going on. She thinks it’s just a blessing from the universe. It ain’t no blessing from the universe.”

But Cardi isn’t holding any beef within the old clip. In fact, she shared a video where Ye praised her during a sit-down with Jason Lee. The accompanying message was a heart emoji. You can see it below.
