The father of four – who shares his children with Kim Kardashian, also called out J.Cole and Drake and referred to himself as slave rebellion leader Nat Turner.

Fans were outraged at Kanye's mention of Nat Turner, as he compared himself to a Black man who was known as one of the famous leaders of slave rebellion during the 1830s.

In a now deleted tweet, 'Ye also claimed that he is "the 2nd richest black man in America," and another stating he is waiting to meet with Jay-Z.

"I need a publicly apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately ... I'm Nat Turner  ... I'm fighting for us," Kanye began.

Shortly after, Kanye went into detailing his relationship with Jay-Z.

"I'm waiting to meet with Sean Carter," ’Ye later wrote, misspelling Jay-Z's actual name, which is spelled Shawn. Ye later apologised for misspelling Jay-Z's name.

"My bad I meant Shawn ... no disrespect to my big bro," he tweeted.

Kanye and Jay-Z were last spotted together in 2016, and reunited in 2019 at Diddy's 50th birthday party.

However, there has been no update of the pairs current friendship status.
