Kanye West & Nick Cannon React To Stephanie Mills’ ‘Paid Slaves’ Comment + Kanye Denies Working W/ Republicans: Can’t Nobody Pay Me, I Got More Money Than Trump
Two powerful men who have been publicly scrutinized as of late, Nick Cannon and Kanye West have sat down for an episode of Cannon’s Class to discuss it all from politics to the public’s reaction to their candor.
In a clip circulating online, they both share their thoughts on a statement made by Stephanie Mills earlier this month, where she called them “paid slaves”.
Nick Cannon said:
“They’ve called both of us coons. They’ve called us crazy. They’ve called, these, all of these names. Like I saw somebody I love dearly, Stephanie Mills said that you and I are ‘paid slaves’ and playing and acting like we’re toys, or playing with our toys and we need to take our toys and go back home.'”
Kanye West reacts stating,
“My last name’s a slave name. Where is home, exactly, Stephanie?”
Kanye West continued:
“People keep on saying I think that y’all, you and Republicans are in cahoots.”
“They’re saying that they’re paying you to do what you’re doing to be a distraction.
“Bro. Can’t nobody pay me. I got more money than Trump.”
Nick Cannon was recently let go from ViacomCBS after he made comments on his “Cannon’s Class” podcast that the company viewed as anti-Semitic hate speech, and Kanye West made a shocking announcement to run for the 2020 presidential election on July 4th on a Twitter post.
Several high-powered people have backed his decision, including Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, and Kanye’s wife, superstar, Kim Kardashian West.
Though many have stood in agreement with Kanye’s decision to run for President, he has faced several moments of backlash for outbursts he’s made during his first campaign in South Carolina, with many people deeming the rapper unqualified and not stable enough to be the next President of the United States.
Well, now Kanye is facing new accusations of deceiving voters for signatures in order to qualify on the Virginia ballot.
Reportedly, two signed affidavits were submitted to the State Board of Elections by voters who claim they were deceived into signing up to serve as electors for West to get on the Virginia ballot.
According to The Washington Post, one of the people who submitted a signed affidavit, Matthan Wilson, a 53-year-old teacher was riding his bicycle when he was approached by three people who asked him if he wanted to “serve in a statewide pool of electors.” He said that he signed but later realized that their request didn’t make sense, as political parties choose electors.
Matthan Wilson later learned from a reporter that he had been named as one of West’s pledged electors. Wilson stated,
“I am so embarrassed. I don’t want to be an elector for Kanye West. I don’t want to vote for Kanye West. I only like one or two of his songs… I feel that I’ve been cheated.”
Kanye has seen his share of highs and lows during his presidential campaign, and though he’s been involved in several political headlines, he recently shared his success in making the ballots in a number of states.
