Kim Kardashian has blasted rapper Rhymefest after he criticized her husband Kanye West on social media.
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

The rapper, real name Che West, is the co-founder of charitable organization Donda’s House which was started in 2011 following the death of Kanye’s mother. In a series of posts on Saturday (26May18), Rhymefest slammed The Life of Pablo star for ignoring the youth of his hometown Chicago.
“I’m asking @Drake to help the part of Chicago Kanye has Abandoned! Please contact @DondasHouse,” he tweeted on Saturday. He also asked fans to boycott Pusha T’s new album, Daytona, which Kanye produced, and instead donate to the organization.
“I spoke to Kanye about it,” Rhymefest continued. “His response was ‘f**k the youth of Chicago.'”
The Donda’s House organization also released a statement on their website, criticising Kanye for allegedly ignoring their requests for financial support.
“We have been unable to secure the financial support of Kanye despite multiple attempts, and despite those early conversations about his plan of support and advocacy for the youth in our programs,” it read.
Kanye has yet to comment publicly on the tweets, but his wife fired back at her husband’s former collaborator in a series of vicious posts.
“U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST… You’re over levergenging (sic) 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,” Kim blasted.
“I saw you at our studio a few weeks ago so why didn’t you bring this up then @RHYMEFEST ? You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats,” she continued. “You have the audacity to use Kanye’s mom name to try to shed a negative light on Kanye… You better believe I will make it my mission to take Donda’s House from you and let my children run it the way it should be run!”
Rhymefest later issued a response to Kim’s tweets, and shared a lengthy statement in which he slammed the reality star for “criticising an organization that you’ve never physically been to OR that you’ve never even talked to the Executive Director or any of the team.”
“I don’t care if no one on your timeline knows who I am. The people in my community and in my city do, and that’s what truly matters to me… Kanye asked me if I would come help him with his album again. I wasn’t seeking Kanye, he was seeking me. I spoke to your husband about peace, balance and as well as about the work we have been doing in Chicago regarding Donda’s House. He was more interested in his record,” he fired
