Shaq burns Kanye West bad using rapper’s own famous lines after mogul calls him out

Ye’s vow of silence isn’t having much of an impact on his ability to piss people off

Kanye West may have taken a vow of silence, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting caught up in a Twitter beef with a former NBA great.

And the rapper, now known as just Ye, got completely slam dunked.

Ye tried to school Shaquille O’Neal on business, but the baller used the rapper’s own famous lines to squash him, even digging the disgraced musician out about his bank balance. Ye claims to have lost £2 billion in one day after Adidas – and everyone else – dropped him for making anti-semitic remarks.

But how did Ye and Shaq even start beefing? Well, Ye had some thoughts he wanted to share.

Earlier this week, Shaq laid into Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving for tweeting out a link to an anti-semitic film and accused the basketballer of “not being conscious” and “not caring who he offended”, according to TMZ.

At that point, Ye, who knows quite a bit about making anti-semitic remarks and what they cost, droped in.

He tweeted:  “They make us bully ourselves because of our business alignments.”

The rapper also attached a photo of Irving, before getting Shaq clearly in his sights by mentioning Canadian billionaire Jamie Salter, whose company Authentic Brands Group manages the businesses of stars like Shaq and David Beckham.

Ye tweeted Thursday: “Shaq is in business with Jamie Salter. Jaimie first said he’s 50/50 with David Beckham and 50/50 with Shaq.

“I said ‘Jamie . . . There’s no such thing as 50/50 in business . . . Who has the extra 1 percent for the control and voting rights?’”.

Ye continued: “Jamie then said he’s actually got the 51 percent on both those deals.

“We as the creators and talent get so caught up in our vanity that we don’t read or understand the fine print. Like Dave Chapelle said, we need to stop giving up control over our own names and our likeness.”

Shaq hit back hard, saying “Believe me you don’t know me like that”, before rubbing the salt in, “Worry about your business, and to quote the once great Kanye West: ‘I got more money than you, so why would I listen to you’. Take my advice, get your family business in order. Have a great day brother.”

Ye returned to Twitter shortly after Elon Musk‘s takeover – something the ‘Chief Twit’ says was nothing to do with him – and has been oversharing ever since.

Earlier this week Ye announced that he was going to stop talking – for 30 days.

In a tweet on Thursday he said he was going to stop drinking, having sex, watching porn and talking as part of a cleanse.
