This led to Kim going on a major Twitter rant, where the media mogul claimed she had seen Rhymefest just a few weeks ago and he failed to raise any issues while doing so.

“U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST You’re over levergenging Kanye’s name & asked Kanye to donate money to u so stop w your fake community politics & lies. Truth is you haven’t been able to sustain the foundation (sic).”

“I saw you at our studio a few weeks ago so why didn’t you bring this up then @RHYMEFEST ?,” she continued. "You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats.”

"Kanye and Donda started a charity called Loop Dreams. When Donda passed, they changed the name to Donda’s House. Kanye paid Rhymefest a salary to run it."

"After several years of lack of performance from the organization and Kanye going through personal financial issues, he could no longer fund salaries. Rhymefest asked to take it over and Kanye agreed with no financial strings attached."

"Kanye gave his “friend” an opportunity to run an organization on his own. So now that Kanye is being publicly shamed for not being involved makes no sense and, at this exact time, just seems very calculated."

"I have and will always applaud any efforts to give back to the community. To fight for justice and to help uplift the youth. But I will never tolerate someone who was close to Kanye who attempts to use his late mother’s name to publicly shame him while pretending to do good." She followed that tweet up with "I will always ride for my man!"
