Kanye, 6, shared the tweet that encouraged Taylor fans to purchase and stream Beyonce’s newest single, Texas Hold ‘Em, so it blocks the Yeezy mogul from the #1 spot.

In his caption, Kanye said, “WHEN I SAID THAT I’M THE NEW JESUS BITCH I WASN’T EVEN THINKING ABOUT TAYLOR SWIFT. THAT WAS A WHOLE LINE BEFORE BUT I APPRECIATE THE FREE PROMO.

“LIL WAYNE ACTUALLY MENTIONS TRAVIS [KELCE] ON VULTURES 2. THIS ALBUM IS ACTUALLY SUPER POSITIVE AND FUN IT’S ALL ABOUT TRIUMPHANT.

“LAST YEAR WAS INCREDIBLY CHALLENGING FOR ME, MY WIFE, MY CHILDREN, FRIENDS AND FAMILY. I’VE BEEN BANNED FROM HOTELS, KICKED OUT OF COMPANIES, AND EVEN NOT ALLOWED TO EAT IN SOME RESTAURANTS.

“EVERYONE SAW VULTURES 1 GET TAKEN OFF OF PLATFORMS TO LIMIT OUR FIRST WEEK NUMBERS. THIS REMINDS ME OF THE MISTREATMENT OF MY PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF OUR SKIN,” he wrote.

Kanye claimed that he was on Taylor’s side when Scooter Braun purchased her masters and that she and Beyonce are “big inspirations” to artists.

The Flashing Lights rapper continued, “I’M SURE I’VE BEEN FAR MORE HELPFUL TO TAYLOR SWIFT’S CAREER THAN HARMFUL. TO ALL TAYLOR SWIFT FANS I AM NOT YOUR ENEMY UUUM IM NOT YOUR FRIEND EITHER THOUGH LOL.

Kanye then denied claims that Taylor “made calls for him to be removed” from the Super Bowl.

“I DIDN’T GET KICKED OUT OF THE SUPER BOWL WE LEFT OUR SEATS TO GO TO YG’S BOX AND SEE DIFFERENT FRIENDS. MY WIFE HAD NEVER BEEN TO A SUPER BOWL SO I WANTED TO WALK AROUND AND HAVE A NICE TIME WE HAD SUCH A FUN DAY,” he said.

He finished his rant with, “THE MEDIA MAY CONTROL THE NARRATIVE BUT THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.”

On Tuesday, Kanye shared a tweet on his Instagram Stories that discussed the rapper dethroning Taylor as the top artist globally on Spotify.

TAYLOR IN KANYE’S MUSIC

In June 2016, Kanye released the controversial music video for his song Famous that featured naked lookalikes of A-list celebrities – including Taylor.

In the song, Kanye says, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b***h famous / I made that b***h famous. Taylor Swift ‘removed Kanye West from Super Bowl seat after rapper bought tickets in front of pop stars suite’ In Kanye’s latest music project with Ty Dolla $ign, Vultures 1, Kanye mentions the Shake It Off hitmaker in his song, CARNIVAL.

The lyric reads, “I made six Taylor Swift / since I had the new Rollie on the wrist / I’m the new Jesus b***h / I turn water into Crist.”

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

The show-stopping moment that started it all occurred when a young Taylor was awarded the VMA for Best Female Video for “You Belong with Me” in 2009.

West climbed the stairs to interrupt Swift’s acceptance speech with the now-infamous proclamation: “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!”

Shortly after, a stunned Taylor told reporters, “I was standing on stage and I was really excited because I’d just won the award and then I was really excited because Kanye West was on stage … And then I wasn’t excited anymore after that.”

TAYLOR SPEAKS OUT

In 2016, the stars’ feud hit an all-time high due to the phone call between Kanye and Taylor about the lyrics in Famous that referenced her.

Taylor claimed that she wasn’t aware that he calls her ‘that b***h,’ despite Kanye’s wife at the time, Kim Kardashian, 3, stating otherwise.

Last December, Taylor was named Time’s Person of the Year.

In her interview, Taylor slammed Kim or “taking her down psychologically” and “forcing her into hiding” for a year during their long-running dispute.

She claimed that the public fallout felt like “a career death,” saying: “Make no mistake — my career was taken away from me.”

Taylor explained: “You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar.

“That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before. I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls.”

She continued: “I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.”

Taylor’s next 2017 album Reputation was said to be largely focused on her experience with the incident.

The songwriter’s choice to use snake imagery in the album was claimed to be a veiled reference to Kim, which reignited the war between the celebrities and their fandoms.

“I thought that moment of backlash was going to define me negatively for the rest of my life,” she noted.

Taylor also spoke about how a life of fame can be fickle, adding: “Nothing is permanent. So I’m very careful to be grateful every second that I get to be doing this at this level, because I’ve had it taken away from me before.

“There is one thing I’ve learned: My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things. Keep making art.

“But I’ve also learned there’s no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies. Trash takes itself out every single time.”
