Brooklyn rapper Desiigner took to Instagram on Friday to claim responsibility for reviving Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint, and to dispute Kanye’s “genius.”

In the video below the rapper also took aim at critics who had accused him of dropping off since his breakout 2015 debut single “Panda.” He claims that although he signed with one of the biggest names in the business, Kanye had done little for him.

Desiigner was visibly frustrated as he delivered the following message: “Nobody is doing this shit for me, bro. Nobody is doing this shit for me… I had signed to Kanye West. The biggest n**ga. Y’all n**gas think he’s the genius. Y’all think that n***a’s shit. But to me, n**ga, that n**ga’s crazy, n**ga. To me, n**ga, I’ve been doing this shit myself.”

The 21-year-old’s media tirade somewhat suspiciously coincided with the release of his “Finesse” single which dropped yesterday. Take a listen below.
