Cardi B Responds to Kanye West Calling Her an Illuminati Plant

"She don't write her raps, she's just there to sound as ignorant as possible"

Cardi B is a lot of things — alien denier, microphone yeeter, potential felon... the list goes on. Somehow, Kanye West has managed to bring an entirely new accusation to the table: she's an industry plant sent by the Illuminati "to sound as ignorant as possible." 

Footage from an unreleased documentary shared by Say Cheese DGTL showed a surprisingly calm Ye making some outlandish claims that an unnamed man, reported to be music executive Corey Gamble, is part of both the CIA and Illuminati, and planted Cardi in the industry. 

"Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati," Kanye can be heard saying in the video. "She don't write her raps, she's just there to sound as ignorant as possible ... she literally replaced Nicki Minaj purposefully. Like they put her there, and now she doesn't know what to do." 
In a now-deleted tweet, Cardi responded to the video by sharing a resurfaced clip of her own — this time, with Kanye saying that he "always believed in her" during a 2022 interview with Hollywood Unlocked.

As shocking as Kanye's statement was, based on Cardi's response and their collab on 2022 single "Hot Shit," it's safe to say that they're on fine terms now — or, at least they might have been before all that antisemitism
