Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, has lost big money deals since his controversial remarks in the press and social media, including his relationship with Adidas for Yeezy's.

Now, Ye has hit back saying he can't be controlled like other celebrities.

In a clip obtained by the Shade Room, Ye told paparazzi exactly what he thought of other celebrities, and name dropped a few too.

He said: "They can’t control me. They can control Shaq, they can control Charles Barkley, they can control LeBron James, they can control Jay-Z and Beyonce.

"But they can’t control me. Ain’t no name I won’t name. It’s up."

Speaking directly to the camera, the rapper claims: "I can say whatever I want and not go to jail".

The rapper then went on to claim that several people in Hollywood like his mother and Michael Jordan's father have been 'sacrificed'.

He said: "My momma ain’t here, my momma was sacrificed. You can’t send none of ya’ll Meek Mills, y’all Lil Boosies…none of these name. None of these people that have to listen to y’all […] I never killed nobody. I’m the pu**y that never killed nobody. But that means I can say whatever I want."

Jordan's dad, James R. Jordan Sr, was shot dead in 1993 in his recently purchased car that he was having a nap in.

Speaking on him, West said: "Michael Jordan, what about him? His dad, right? Bill Cosby, his son, right? Dr. Dre, his son. Out here in Hollywood, a lot of people come up missing. Feels like it might be a lot of that in order to control, traumatize."

In the explosive clip, Ye then went on to talk about some of the brands that have ditched him following the controversy surrounding him.

"They wanna monetize and traumatize," he said.

"And God love me. They hit me. GAP, Adidas, all that away. Still, Forbes, who hate me, had to write, ‘Net worth: $400 million.'"

People on social media have been reacting to West's most recent outburst, with one person writing: "All the people he named understand the importance of family and strong bonds. He’s on some crusade that’s putting a major strain on the people he loves. It’s sad to see."

And a second added: "He’s trying to fix his sins, but what’s done is done. Ain’t no going back."
