Kanye West Said “F**k Chicago Youth” According To Rhymnefest, Kim Kardashian Responds: “I Will ALWAYS Ride For My Man!”
Kim Kardashian West is sticking up for her man. In a slew of aggressive tweets on Saturday, the 37-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star fired back at rapper Rhymefest after he alleged that her husband, Kanye West has abandoned Donda’s House, a non-profit organization named after West’s late mother, Donda, that helps disadvantaged youth in Chicago.
It seems the drama erupted when Rhymefest asked Drake over Twitter if he could donate money to Donda’s House because the organization is struggling and West allegedly turned his back on it.
“@DRake when G.O.O.D. Music sends the money they owe you, will you please help us rebuild Kanye’s mother’s house for the youth of Chicago.
I spoke to Kanye about it. His response was ‘f*** the youth of Chicago,’” Rhymefest posted.
“I’m asking @Drake to help the part of Chicago Kanye has Abandoned! Please contact @DondasHouse.”
The tweets set Kardashian off, who took to the social networking site to lash out at her husband’s former friend. She wrote:
U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST. You’re over levergenging (sic) Kanye’s name & asked Kanye to donate money to u so stop w your fale community politics & lies. Truth is you haven’t been able to sustain the foundation.
I saw you at our studio a few weeks ago so why didn’t you bring this up then @RHYMEFEST You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats. You have the audacity to use Kanye’s mom name to try to shed a negative light on Kanye.
You didn’t say this when Kanye paid you up front then you disappeared during Pablo #RealFriends @RHYMEFEST.
You better believe I will make it my mission to take Donda’s House from you and let my children run it the way it should be run! @RHYMEFEST.
Oh and lastly your flight cancelled to Wyoming. You thought you were really worthy to be on this album.
Sorry to all of my followers for flooding my timeline I know you have no idea who Rhymefest is.
Rhymefest responded with the following statement,

He also added,
I encourage you instead of attacking me personally, to Google us, watch the videos on our YouTube channel featuring our work and come actually speak to the young people who have actually been involved in our program before you, in your position of privilege from God knows where in the world, via social media attempt to dismantle this valued community asset.
Donda’s House later announced that they would no longer use the name, writing:
Following the feud, the organization released a statement saying it was dropping the name Donda’s House. Due to recent events have occurred over the last 48 hours, we have decided to no longer use the name Donda’s House Inc. This has been an incredibly difficult decision but the social media quotes from Kim Kardashian West, as well as the expressed interest of her family running the organization, has brought us to this decision.

In a second round of tweets, Kardashian explained gave a backstory as to why Kanye disassociated himself from Donda’s House.
Kanye and Donda started a charity called Loop Dreams. When Donda passed, they changed the name to Donda’s House. Kanye paid Rhymefest a salary to run it.
After several years of lack of performance from the organization and Kanye going through personal financial issues, he could no longer fund salaries. Rhymefest asked to take it over and Kanye agreed with no financial strings attached.
Kanye gave his ‘friend’ an opportunity to run an organization on his own. So now that Kanye is being publicly shamed for not being involved makes no sense and, at this exact time, just seems very calculated.
I have and will always applaud any efforts to give back to the community. To fight for justice and to help uplift the youth. But I will never tolerate someone who was close to Kanye who attempts to use his late mother’s name to publicly shame him while pretending to do good.
The mother-of-three ended her tirade by tweeting that she ‘will always ride’ for her man.
