Shade alert! 50 Cent took to Instagram to mock Kanye West and Kim Kardashian on Nov. 27, sharing a video that poked fun at Yeezy after his hospitalization. The rapper also noted how Jay Z needs to call Ye since he ‘ain’t right.’ See the shocking clip!
Too soon? 50 Cent is known for speaking his mind, whether it bothers people or not. So of course, the rapper didn’t tread lightly when mocking Kanye West on Nov. 27, sharing an edited video alongside the caption, “Man Jay better call this ni**a right now, this ain’t right. Lol.” In the compilation clip, it shows Yeezy onstage giving an impassioned speech about his career. He began, “My role models are Truman, Ford, West,” as the camera pans to an audience member gasping. It then transitions to Ye saying, “I came here to present my new video, I put Ray J in it bro,” showing Kim Kardashian clapping and screaming for her beau amidst a silent crowd.
Of course, 50’s bizarre clip had a big ending, showing Yeezy yelling, “As u probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.” It’s clear 50 is trying to poke fun at all of Kanye’s wild statements and antics over the past year, even addressing how Ye slammed Jay Z for not calling at his Nov. 19 gig in Sacramento. One user clapped back at 50 for doing this after Kanye’s hospitalization, writing, “it’s cowardly to kick a man when he is down.”
Kanye was checked into the UCLA Medical Center on Nov. 21 after reportedly suffering from “temporary psychosis” brought on by sleep deprivation and dehydration. Although many fans thought Yeezy would be released home by now, his alleged “problems go much deeper,” according to TMZ. It’s clear he’s going through a tough time, having recently cancelled a rescheduled Los Angeles gig and the remainder of his high-grossing Saint Pablo tour to take care of himself. So, we’re not sure how fans are going to take 50’s video.
