Why Kanye West's latest social media rant against Drake and Nick Cannon is one of the sweetest things he's ever done
Kanye West is a lot of things - rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur and fashion designer - and now, sweetest partner is certainly one of them.
Kanye West isn't always a man of many words, but when he does speak, it can sometimes be hard to follow. He's never been afraid of saying exactly what he wants to even if it doesn't always sit right with people. He is trolled, but that doesn't stop Yeezus! We also know just how much he adores his wife, reality star Kim Kardashian. So when Nick Cannon and Drake decide to come at his wife, he couldn't help but defend her.
Kanye took to Instagram on Thursday and posted a series of videos addressing some things that "didn't sit right with him." While some have branded this as bizarre, we have to admit that this is perhaps one of the sweetest things that have come out of Kanye's vocal chords in a while.
The last time Kanye decided to speak up, he had caused a controversy after his comments on slavery and Trump. He had said: "400 years of slavery sounds like a choice to me." That obviously raised some eyebrows. He also mentioned how he liked the way Trump sounded which also got him a severe amount of backlash.
Kanye first addressed Nick, saying, "First of all I want to address Nick Cannon. I understand that you used to date my wife, but you know, you get into an interview, don't mention my wife." Nick, in an interview with Complex interview Cannon had said that it wasn't a "far off of a concept" that Drake and Kim K had hooked up in the past. There was also the pretty understandably offensive VladTV interview where Nick had reminisced about Kim's famous butt, saying, "That white girl got ass!!" The two have history, as we all know.
He also took a jab at Drake, after rumors circled that his hit 'Kiki' was actually about Kim K(btw Kiki is Kim's nickname.) Kanye took the fight straight to where it hurts for Drake - RiRi. Who doesn't remember their awkward almost kiss at the 2016 VMA's? "You know, if I had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita, and you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn’t make no song called Riri. So when you’re like, 'Ahhh I don’t know where it come from,' you too smart for that bro. You know where that come from. Don’t make no record with nothing that can be confused," he told Drake.
Kim had denied rumors saying that nothing ever happened and that was that. The excuse is sort of lame, for sure and Kanye clearly isn't in the mood for lameness. Isn't there something very chivalrous about this whole rant? I certainly think so.
Kanye West on many occasions has done the most incredibly sweet things for Kim. and it wouldn't be wrong to say that he's actually the only man in the Kardashian Jenner clan who's been such a great partner. He's known to take care of their three kids, make family trips with them and even hold Kim's heels when the need arises. When Kim was held at gunpoint in Paris, he dropped everything (he was on the Saint Pablo tour, and on stage when the news arrived) and rushed to be with her.
He's gotten on and off again on Instagram, and the last time he did, it was to wish Kim Valentine's Day with about 50 photos of celebrity couples letting her know what she means to him. Kanye West is a lot of things, and sweetest partner is certainly one of them.
