Kim Kardashian Claps Back at Rhymefest, Threatens to Give Donda's House to Her Kids: 'Truth Is You Haven't Been Able to Sustain the Foundation'

Kim Kardashian West had time today.

After Kanye’s former collaborator and Donda’s House foundation co-founder Rhymefest issued a statement asking for continued support while putting Kanye on blast for not financing renovation plans, Kim took to Twitter to set the record straight and defend her husband.

But first, let’s go back to what started this feud…

In 2013, Kanye West co-founded Donda’s House along with Che ‘Rhymefest’ Smith and Donnie Smith as a way to honor his mother after her passing and to give back to Chicago’s youth.

In 2015, Kanye secured the foundation’s largest donation to date — $133,000 — some of which included proceeds from Ye’s performances from the Louis Vuitton Foundation shows in Paris.

“Kanye’s generosity is greatly appreciated and will improve our capacity with new staff as we deliver the high-quality arts programming that our participants deserve,” Executive Director Donnie Smith wrote in a press release at the time.

Rhymefest, also commented on the donation. “This is a great honor and a true tribute to his mother’s legacy, who did so much for young artists,” he said.

In 2016, Donda’s House announced that the organization purchased Kanye’s childhood home in hopes of converting it into a community arts center and recording studio.

In October 2017, Rhymefest and Donda’s House announced that Kanye’s childhood home not only needs to be re-zoned from residential to commercial use, but it also needs to be demolished and rebuilt after discovering it was in worse shape than previously thought. Rhymefest said that later in the fall the organization planned to raise $1 million toward the costs of demolition and construction of a new facility.

That brings us to now. Yesterday, amid Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” diss track aimed at Pusha-T and Kanye, Rhymefest published a statement on behalf of Donda’s House asking those who have boycotted Kanye to not boycott the foundation — and accused Kanye of not donating to help with the demolition of his childhood home.

He also tweeted Drake, suggesting that G.O.O.D. Music remit the ‘invoice’ payment to the foundation instead of OVO.

Kanye has yet to comment on the allegations, but according Kim Kardashian Rhymefest is simply using this time to attack Kanye because he can’t sustain the foundation.

Kim also says that she and Kanye just saw Rhymefest a few weeks ago and he didn’t say anything about the foundation, instead tried to get him to listen to “sub par beats.”

Take a look:

Yikes. This dysfunction might explain why Kanye decided to launch Donda Social.

Update: Rhymefest has responded.
