Over the years American rapper Ye has gotten into feuds with various celebrities and fashion brands with most being self-imposed.

They include:

1. Taylor Swift

It all started when the rapper ambushed Swift's acceptance speech for Video of the Year at the 2009 MTV VMAs for which he later apologized.

Then, in 2016, West released the track "Famous" with the controversial lyrics, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that ... famous."

Kanye's team claimed that Ye and Swift had a lengthy conversation about the line before releasing the song but Swift's team denied it.

Apart from Kanye referring to Swift as a "snake" the two artists haven't interacted in public.

Swift 2023 disclosed that her beef with Kim Kardashian and Kanye was like a " career death" to her.

Kanye and Drake's relationship soured as a result of several misunderstandings. Hints appeared in tweets, emojis, lyrics, and diss tracks in the late 2010s, in relation to Kanye's close friend Pusha-T.

Pusha had revealed that Drake had a "secret" son named Adonis. 

During an appearance on LeBron James' HBO show "The Shop," Drake said he felt betrayed by Ye, because Ye had dropped his eponymous eighth studio album weeks before his album, "Scorpion."

In a series of tweets, Ye then accused Drake of threatening him and called him a "bully."

He followed up and urged Scott to apologize. West alleged that Drake threatened his life and the safety of his family.

Kanye seemed to have reignited the beef this year by saying" ... Drake for taking Durk right at the beginning of the Vultures role out, though Drake seems to have addressed said statement by being confused. 

On 17 November 2023, Drake released "Red Button" as part of For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition. Drake called out West for being false when apologizing about their recurring conflict.

Kanye West and Sean 'Diddy' Combs have been beefing since October 2022.

Kanye West has declared war on Diddy after Puff recently shared his disapproval of Ye's "White Lives Matter" shirts.

Ye called Diddy a "fed", but despite the feud, he was present at Kanye's Vultures Rolling Loud performance.

4. Elon Musk

Ye and the tech billionaire were on good terms as of 2020 but after having a role in Ye's suspension from X in 2022, Ye fired shots against Elon.

He suggested that Elon was half-Chinese.

Elon justified the suspension saying he was ultimately forced to remove him because “at some point, you have to say what is incitement to violence because it is against the law in the US”.

Kanye was unbanned from X in 2023, in the song Carnival Kanye raps a bar " Elon where my rocket ship, its time to go home."

5. Trevor Noah

West responded by directing a racial slur at Noah on Instagram, which led to West being temporarily banned from the platform for a day.

“Why am I beefing with Kanye? That's an interesting way to phrase it because a beef has to go both ways,” Noah told the audience member.

The beef remained dormant for half a year until Ye randomly named Noah in the middle of his Instagram rant towards Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa Johnson, marking the second that his name has been caught in the crossfire.

6. Adidas

Ye called out Adidas for selling colors of his popular Yeezy sneakers that he never approved, and claimed it was using contract clauses to "rape an artist, one of y'all's favorite artists" referring to himself.

The beef would ensue throughout 2024 as Kanye proudly curses out Adidas multiple times early this year.

7. Pete Davidson

West called out Davidson by name in his “My Life Was Never Eazy” single with The Game. “God saved me from the crash just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ...,” the rapper crooned in the song, which debuted in January 2022.

After Pete and Kim Kardashian broke up, Ye posted an image on Instagram that featured a headline claiming that Pete was dead at 28.

It was reported that Pete into trauma therapy due to these high-profile personal attacks.

8. John Legend

Legend said he and West "publicly disagreed on his running for office, his supporting Trump, I think it became too much for us to sustain our friendship, honestly." 

Legend also said West was annoyed with him for not supporting his presidential run, to which Axelrod said he was not "alone."

9. Hailey and Justin Bieber

Singer Justin Bieber thinks rapper Kanye West "crossed a line" with his recent comments about his wife Hailey Baldwin.

Ye had urged Justin Bieber to "get [his] girl before [he] gets mad," 

This is after Hailey supported Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, an author who spoke against Ye's decision to wear a "White Lives Matter" shirt at Yeezy Season 9.

Even though Hailey never spoke against Ye directly, Ye still attacked her and thus it was reported on October 8 that Justin terminated his and Ye's friendship.
