Last week, Kanye West made his return to Instagram after facing a brief suspension from the platform for sharing anti-Semitic comments. The Chi-Town rapper had just learned of the closure of his Simi Valley-based private school, Donda Academy, and shared a number of posts amid his comeback on social media. One of his Instagram posts was for 50 Cent, who now resides in Houston, Texas. It appeared that with the fate of Donda Academy up in the air, West assumed that 50 Cent would be interested in partnering with him to bring the school to Texas.
“We have Donda school plans that we need to build with 50 in Houston,” the rapper wrote under one of his posts.
50 Cent seemed to toy with the idea, but it was very clear that he didn’t want any of West’s residual reaction.
The “In The Club” rapper reposted a screenshot of Kanye’s post telling Kanye that even though he’s down with a collab, he’s not sure the time is right.
50, however, is not so sure yet.
“Okay YE let’s build a school in Houston but go cool off…N*** hot right now feds all on you!” the “Best Friend” rapper said in a since-deleted post.
In a follow-up message, 50 Cent said he was seriously considering the idea of building a school in Houston.
“You know the vibes I’m moving,” he wrote. “I never built a school, I could really build one in Houston.”
50 gave West some advice after hearing rumors that the controversial rapper has an admiration for Adolf Hitler.
“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” 50 wrote in a deleted caption. “I think Kanye should buy his favorite car and drive off into the sunset, it’s really a wrap. People are really hurt by this shit. I’ve seen people in this position because of things that ‘they did and not things they said. Now you gotta master the art of shutting up your fucking shit! …you’re gonna make everybody hot. Go cool off!’
As Blavity previously reported, West went on an anti-Semitic rant on Twitter earlier this month.
“I’m a little sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m gonna die con 3 on JEWS,” West tweeted. “Funny thing is, I can’t be anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jewish too. You played with me and tried to test anyone who opposes your agenda.”
Since then, the Grammy-winning artist has lost his agent, tons of brand partnerships and billions of dollars, as Blavity previously reported. He was also forced to close his school, Donda Academy, which reopened hours later with the help of families and supporters.
During his appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored, Kanye West apologized to the Jewish community for how his comments made them feel.
“I will say I’m sorry for the people I’ve hurt with the confusion I’ve caused,” he said on the show. “I feel sorry for the families of the people who had nothing to do with the trauma I went through.”
West continued his apology tour on Lex Fridman’s podcast, where he again made a random attempt to redeem himself.
Many members of the black community criticized Kanye West for quickly apologizing for his comments towards the Jewish community, but never really apologizing for the many things he said against black people – the latest comments regarding the death of George Floyd.
After weeks of silence regarding his comments to Floyd, in which West told the Drink champions podcast that the 46-year-old died not at the hands of Derek Chauvin but through the use of fentanyl, West finally speaks up.
In front of a group of reporters in Los Angeles, the rapper made a statement
“When I see this [George Floyd] video as a black person it hurts me and i know the police are attacking…and america is generally racist. I get that when we had to say Black Lives Matter, the idea of it made us feel good together as a people,” West began. “When Black Lives Matter came out, it made us feel better as a people. Now after that there were certain things about where the money went. There were certain things about where it went. been used to push us toward the Democratic vote. So when I said that, and questioned the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people. It hurt black people. So I want to excuse [for] hurt them because right now, God has shown me by what Adidas is doing and by what the media is doing, I know what it feels like to have a knee on your neck now.
West went on to say, “So thank God for humbling me and letting me know how I feel, because how can the richest black man not be humiliated other than not being billionaire in front of everyone from a single comment.”
Following West’s initial comments on the Drink champions podcast, Roxie Washington, the mother of George Floyd’s only daughter, Gianna Floyd, has filed a lawsuit seeking $250 million in damages for “harassment, misappropriation, defamation and emotional suffering.” According to Forbes, when adidas severed ties with the rapper, his net worth plummeted to just $400 million. A lawsuit like this could leave him catastrophically in debt.
As for Kanye feeling like his legacy is ruined, the rapper says he’s not worried and trusts God’s plan.
