Cannon’s clap back was clear to Ye… “You’re not going to tell me what I can and what I can’t say.”
And while there was a slight dig at the rapper, Nick’s message mostly tried to clear up the misunderstanding between the two. He also invited West on Wild‘n Out to hash things out.
Here’s what Nick had to say:
“First off, let me say welcome back, Ye, from the Sunken Place,” Cannon said in an Instagram video. “Hey, I’m glad you back with it, brother. Nothing but love and respect for you, you know I always had that… I’ve never said anything disrespectful or harmful, in my opinion, to your marriage or your union. I salute it. Keep it going. But you’re not going to tell me what I can and what I can’t say… I’m a solid individual; Somebody ask me a question, I’mma answer it to the best of my ability. I’m going to give my opinion and ain’t no harm, no foul, but if it got your spirit feeling weird, holler at me.”
In a second clip, Nick invited Kanye on his show Wild ‘n Out.
“I guess this is the way we communicating now in 2018, via social media. I guess we don’t use phones and stuff like that no more,” he said. “But just saying to my man Kanye that the 200th episode of Wild ‘n Out is upon us… You’re more than welcome. Let’s talk about it, man. Come on the show.”
He added: “I got nothing but love for you, but you know I’ll always speak my mind, just like you always speak yours,” he added. “Not you, not NBC, no corporate infrastructures, no one is ever gonna control what I say because I speak truth always, it’s love.”
We reported earlier how Kanye had a few words for Nick (and Drake and Tyson Beckford) over comments he shared about his wife Kim Kardashian.
“First of all, I want to address Nick Cannon. Like, I understand that you used to date my wife, but you know you give an interview, don’t mention my wife. If someone brings my wife up, you say, ‘Ay, I respect that man. I’m not speaking on that.’ Don’t be making no suggestions like nobody f–ked my wife.”
