In the video, Kanye said, “First of all, I want to address Nick Cannon. I understand that you used to date my wife, but you know, you get into an interview, don’t mention my wife.”
Cannon was quick to post his own video, rebutting the “I Love It” rapper.
“First off, let me say welcome back Ye from the sunken place, it’s a beautiful thing,” Cannon said at the start of his video. “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,” he said. “I salute it, keep it going. But you not going to tell me what I can and what I can’t say.”
He added, “I’m a solid individual; Somebody ask me a question, imma 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.”
Cannon went on to invite Kanye on his show, Wild ‘n Out, where he said they can talk about Kim, and even Cannon’s ex Mariah Carey.
But, he closed out the video reminding Kanye that he will be not silenced.
“I got nothing but love for you, but you know I’ll always speak my mind, just like you always speak yours,” he said. “Not you, not NBC, no corporate infrastructures, no one is ever gonna control what I say because I speak truth always, it’s love.”
