Kanye West squashes beef with Soulja Boy over removed ‘Donda’ verse
The Chicago native reached out to Soulja about the verse.
Kanye West and Soulja Boy have squashed their beef. On Wednesday (Nov. 10), Ye revealed he texted the “Crank Dat” rapper and acknowledged that he should have been more transparent about their Donda collaboration, which was ultimately left off the album’s final version.
As reported by REVOLT, Kanye hailed Soulja as one of the “top five most influential” artists during his now-viral “Drink Champs” episode last week. However, the 44-year-old admitted he didn’t like the verse Soulja recorded for his Donda song “Remote Control,” which is why it didn’t make the album’s final cut.
Soulja got wind of Kanye’s comments about his verse and went on a social media warpath. In a video, he showed text message receipts of the Chicago native claiming his verse was “hard” despite leaving it off the album.
“You not finna baby me ni**a with some muthafuckin’ ‘Soulja Boy is the future,’” he said. “Shut the fuck up ni**a. You said my verse wasn’t hard ni**a? Who the fuck is you think you talkin’ — everything that come out my muthafuckin’ mouth is hard ni**a! What the fuck is you talkin’ bout Kanye West?”
Kanye made a few changes to Donda that didn’t sit right with his album collaborators.
Besides Soulja, who previously demanded an apology from Ye over the removed verse, Chris Brown was also unhappy with the Jesus is King crafter. As reported, Breezy called Kanye a “whole hoe” in a since-deleted Instagram Story post and roasted his haircut shortly after Kanye pulled his Donda verse. According to The Shade Room, Chris “was a little heated about his verse being removed from one of the songs on the new album.”
For now, at least Kanye has made amends with Soulja. See the rappers’ text conversation on Instagram below.
