Kanye West accused Cardi B of being an industry plant by the Illuminati during a rant from a never-before-released documentary that has leaked online. In one clip, West rants about the Invasion of Privacy rapper while on his cellphone. In doing so, he theorizes that she's here to replace Nicki Minaj.

“Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati,” Ye says in the video. “She don’t write her raps. She just there to sound as as ignorant as possible. She’s literally replaced Nicki Minaj purposely… She thinks it’s a blessing from the universe, it ain’t no f*cking blessing.”

Cardi B isn't the only artist Kanye took aim at in the documentary. In another clip, he calls out Teyana Taylor, Nas, and Pusha T for not appreciating his help. “The f*ck I’m doing giving (‘Gonna Love You’) to f*cking Teyana? What the f*ck I’m doing giving that DAYTONA album to Pusha?” he said. “That sh*t was three Dark Fantasies that I gave away. ‘Cops Shot The Kid’, Nas rapping all God damn offbeat on it, don’t even wanna shoot a video, then shoot the video, don’t even tell me. These motherf*ckers don’t appreciate me. All these motherf*ckers is trynna use me.” Check out his comments on Cardi below.
