Cardi B warns ‘haters’ to leave her alone and claims she has receipts that would cause chaos on the internet after Kanye West called her out for being ‘an Illuminati plant’
Cardi B has sent an ominous message to her ‘haters’ in the wake of footage emerging of Kanye West calling her an ‘Illuminati plant’.
The WAP rapper warned people to leaver her alone and let her make her music in an Instagram live as she threatened to release ‘receipts’ that would send the internet into meltdown.
The 30-year-old had already responded once to West – who made the comments accusing her of being a plant in an unreleased 2018 documentary – by sharing his own words from 2022 when he said ‘I always believed in her.’
In the clip, Cardi B said: ‘To my haters, and all you motherf*****s who want to see mess, leave me the f*** alone, because I come with receipts.
‘I will bring this internet into f***ing shambles b**** you don’t even know.’
Fans online have speculated about who this could be aimed at, with the I Wonder rapper the most common suggestion.
However, the rant seems directed at multiple people. Whether that group includes any other famous faces appears to be a mystery.
She continued: ‘It will be crazy, so let me keep it cute. I have matured, keep me there.
‘And I won’t just say it out my mouth, I literally got real receipts with dates.
‘So leave me alone, because y’all not gonna be ready for that.
‘Let me mind my business, let me keep working, let me be a mom, let me keep putting music out. Don’t try to bring Belcalis [Cardi B’s real name] out.
‘Love Cardi B, don’t bring Belcalis. Leave me there, ok?’
The singer had already once responded to the viral clip of the now-46-year-old Chicago native by tweeting, and subsequently deleting, a 2022 clip of West speaking highly of her and her talents in a Hollywood Unlocked clip.
In the clip, released the same year the pair collaborated on the track Hot S*** he says that he had championed Cardi B since her time on the reality show Love & Hip-Hop: New York.
‘I always believed in her since she was on the show,’ West said in the clip, which Cardi B posted with a heart emoji.
This appears at odds with the newly-surfaced 2018 comments, where West says that Cardi B doesn’t ‘write her raps’ and is ‘just there to sound as ignorant as possible and then make songs like, “F*** them and get some money.”‘
West – who has largely been out of the media since making a series of anti-Semitic remarks late last year – added that Cardi B ‘has literally replaced Nicki Minaj’ and was ‘purposely’ positioned at the level of stardom she has achieved.
‘Now she doesn’t know what to do,’ he continued, ‘and she has no idea what the f*** is going on.
‘She thinks it’s just a blessing from the universe – it ain’t no blessing from the f***ing universe.’
Cardi B is not the first big name to be faced with this accusation.
