Outside of her close-knit Hollywood circle and Kardashian-West fans, there aren’t many people left in Hollywood who have cut cards for Kim Kardashian.
The reality star recently discovered this when she went toe to toe with Hollywood heartthrob Tyson Beckford on Instagram. Though the Make Me a Supermodel host threw out the first jab, the internet thrashed at Kim after she inadvertently stuck her own foot in her mouth by clapping back at him with a homophobic remark. Prior to Beckford, she’d also engaged in social media warfare with her younger sister’s former flame Lamar Odom, and before that, critics of her weakly defined “Bo Derek braids” at the top of 2018.
Kim’s recent choice to swell up her chest and shove back at the opposition can be considered newfound however, since there are a few folks in the hip-hop circle she might not ever dare to open fire on—self-defense or not.
From West Coast icon Snoop Dogg to crowned hip-hop bully 50 Cent, here are nine rappers who have kept it all the way 100 on the topic of the Kardashian-West matriarch and have no shame about it.
“Dumb a** n**ga, you shouldn’t have tried to wife the b**ch, man,” Snoop said to Kim’s ex-husband and NBA baller, Kris Humphries, following their divorce after just 72 days of marriage.
“I mean … if that man feel like she’s perfect, then she’s perfect," Fif said in an XXL interview regarding Kanye West's "Perfect B**ch" song dedicated to Kim. "He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye. You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
"Nah, that's worn out," Kendrick responded in a KGGI 99.1 interview when asked whether he'd shoot his shot if Kim made the first move. "Kim K? I don't wanna go behind that. Kanye, he havin' fun with it right now. I need something fresh to make me look right."
"Damn, I think Kim Kardashian's a man," Em unleashed in his "We Made You" single, taking aim at the now 37-year-old. "She stomped him, just 'cause he asked to put his hands on her massive gluteus maximus again/ Squeeze then squish it and pass it to a friend."
Luda used Kim as his prime example in a former Instagram post about fake bodies and real bodies (or, "GMO versus organic") and, more narrowly, how you can tell the difference by looking at whether a woman's thighs are proportionate with her lady bumps. Beneath GMO was a photo of Kim, her enhanced derrière, and her pair of unmatching thighs. The organic photo, however, showed a woman with an au-naturale booty and the thighs to match.
Junior M.A.F.I.A. rapper Nino Brown rung in Christmas 2016 with a fiery choice of words for Kim and all of her sisters. “You hoes are culture vultures!” he raged in the nearly 4-minute video. “I don’t care for how many followers you got! B**ch you ain’t got no talent, and you ‘round here fooling our motherf**kin Black men like you the sh**!”
According to Bossip, the Dipset flag bearer sent shots at Kim upon learning of her and Kanye’s then newly developed relationship. Killa Cam commented on Kim’s “hoe into a housewife ways” and how far he believes they’ve gotten her: “I guess the hoes are winning.”
After Kim voiced her support for a Kanye For President 2020 run, Azealia shut it down with the quickness. On social media, the Ice Princess directed her statements at Kim, reminding her that not only would her husband never touch the president’s chair in the Oval Office, but neither would she as the first lady. “Kanye will never be the president and you will never ever be the First Lady,” Azealia said. “Give it up sis.”
In one of Kim’s most public feuds, the Kardashian sister went tweet-for-tweet with her husband’s close collaborator and hip-hop confidante Rhymefest over his criticisms for Kanye’s involvement in the now-defunct Donda’s House Chicago charity effort. “I encourage you instead of attacking me personally, to google us,” he responded to her after she shadily asked her Twitter followers if any of them knew who he was. “Watch the videos on our YouTube channel featuring our work and come actually speak to the young people who have been involved in our program before you, in your position of privilege from God knows where in the world.”
