In a random rant to the paparazzi Friday night, Kanye West calls out artists who he says are currently “under control”.
“They can’t control me, you know what I’m saying,” West begins. “They can control Shaq, they can control Charles Barkley, they can control Lebron James.”
Both Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James have spoken out against the rapper, and LeBron recently made the decision to drop the episode of The Shop featuring the rapper which was once on hold.
“They can control Jay-Z and Beyonce,” West said. “But they can’t control me. Ain’t no name I won’t name. It’s up.”
The 45-year-old then went on to speak on Hollywood “sacrifices,” even referencing what would have apparently been his own—the death of his mother Donda West.
“My mama ain’t here, my mama was sacrificed,” West shared. “Michael Jordan, what about him, his daddy? Bill Cosby, his son. Dr. Dre, his son. You know out in Hollywood, a lot of people come up missing. Feels like it might be a lot of that in order to control, traumatize. They wanna monetize, and traumatize.”
