According to HiPHOPnmore, the artist who changed his name to Ye claimed that George Floyd died due to fentanyl, indicating that he was not killed by the actions of former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin who was convicted of his murder. He was speaking in a recent podcast with N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s Drink Champs that is aired on the Revolt app. The 'Praise God' singer said, “They hit him with the fentanyl. If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that."

George Floyd died in May 2020 after officer Derek Chauvin held his neck for about 9.5 minutes. According to AP, chief medical examiner Dr Andrew Baker deemed Floyd’s death a homicide, saying he died after police “subdual, restraint and neck compression” caused his heart and lungs to stop. He said heart disease and drug use were factors but not the “top line” causes. Chauvin has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison for violating George Floyd's civil rights, reports BBC.

According to Page Six, Kanye also came up with a strong allegation regarding Kris Jenner and Drake and doubled down on the duo's one-night stand. Right after he unapologetically claimed that Drake is the best rapper ever, he was questioned by the hosts regarding his "Drake f**k ya baby mama's mama" post, to which he responded, "Yeah that was hard." His reaction got him and both the hosts laughing. He also added, "You know what it mean... Corey [Gamble] know what it mean." Corey Gamble has been Kris Jenner's boyfriend since 2014, with an age gap of 25 years. Listen to the full podcast here.

The rapper also addressed the 'White Lives Matter' controversy and his views on antisemitic posts, he said, "Jews have taken over the Black voice. Whether it's because we wear the Ralph Lauren T-shirt, or because all of us are signed to a record label, or because we have a Jewish manager, or because we're signed to a Jewish basketball team, or because we've made a movie on a Jewish platform like Disney. I respect what the Jewish people have done and how they have brought their people together, reports Marca.

Kanye also complained about how Dov Charney, Los Angeles Apparel founder, who printed Kanye’s controversial White Lives Matter shirts, refused to release the shirts after Kanye's “Death con 3 on Jewish People” tweet; Charney encouraged West to visit the Holocaust Museum to which West told him to visit “our Holocaust museum" Planned Parenthood, reported Rolling Stone.

Tony Posnanski opined, "George Floyd’s family should sue Kanye West for every f*****g Penny he has." A tweet stated, "I will never listen to your music again.💀💀" Another user claimed, "Ban Kanye from doing interviews." Meanwhile, a user stated, "Ye is not the greatest communicator and he has been out of line plenty of times but I genuinely believe his heart is always in the right place. He just does not always express himself in the right way. So this is just classic Ye. Listen to the full thing. He is not crazy."
