According to his former staff, Kanye West’s anti-Semitic rant is nothing new.
For years, the “All Of The Lights” rapper has been saying disturbing things at work, and he appears to have paid off a coworker to keep him quiet about his racist behavior.
According to NBC News, Kanye reached a settlement agreement with a former employee who claimed to have overheard Kanye praising Adolf Hitler or the Nazis during business meetings.
According to the site, six more people have heard Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband express conspiracy theories against Jewish people or glorify Hitler in business situations in the previous five years.
Ryder Ripps, an artist who collaborated with the Yeezy creator on and off between 2014 and 2018, was the only person who spoke on the record.
The musician believes he was trying to counter Kanye’s views because he is Jewish, but he never thought his remarks were dangerous.
Ryder overheard Kanye remark:
“Nazis are fantastic at propaganda.”
Also, the “Goldigger” rapper also said to him in 2018:
“You’re not insulted that like I’m interested in Nazis or anything.”
Though Ryder did not previously take Kanye seriously, he has changed his mind after hearing the “N*ggas In Paris” rapper’s anti-Semitic sentiments have grown on social media and in interviews in recent weeks.
He told NBC:
“This is dangerous, and disgusting, and actually violent.”
However, this is not the first time people have revealed Kanye West’s obsession with Hitler and the Nazis.
According to CNN, the father-of-four had planned to name his 2018 album “Hitler” but changed his mind for an unspecified reason.
Kanye allegedly talked openly about reading “Mein Kampf,” the Nazi Party leader’s autobiographical autobiography published in 1925.
Kanye’s former coworker added:
“He would admire Hitler by expressing how fantastic it was that he was able to gain so much power and would talk about all the great things he and the Nazi Party did for the German people.”
Kanye West’s billionaire status has been revoked due to his recent comments. Following his remarks, Adidas, Balenciaga, Gap, and Vogue reportedly severed ties with him.
