Nick Cannon has responded to Kanye West.

Hours after 'Ye called out Cannon for suggesting the Kim Kardashian and Drake hookup rumors were likely true, the Wild n' Out host defended himself in a couple of Instagram videos. 

For those who missed Kanye's rant, which also took aim at Drizzy and Tyson Beckford, here's a quick reminder of what he had to say to Cannon: 

"First of all I want to address Nick Cannon. I understand that you used to date my wife, but you know, you get into an interview, don’t mention my wife,” the rapper stated, referencing Cannon's comments on Everyday Struggle.

Cannon began by saying he had nothing but love for Kanye and that he never said anything disrespectful about the West family; however, Cannon made sure to inform the G.O.O.D. Music chief that he had no control over what comes out of his mouth. 

"First off, let me say: Welcome back, 'Ye, from the Sunken Place. It's a beautiful thing [...] nothing but love and respect for you. You know I've always had that," Cannon said. "But I honestly gotta say this, my dude: I've never said anything disrespectful or harmful, in my opinion, to your marriage or your union; I salute it, keep it going. But you not gonna tell me what I can and what I can't say. I'm a solid individual, and if somebody asks me a question, I'm gonna answer it to the best of my ability."

Cannon then encouraged Kanye to reach out to him if he wanted to resolve any issues. He completed his message by inviting 'Ye back to Wild n' Out: "Come on the show, show that it's all love [...] Come back for that 200th episode. We can get to it, 'cause in all seriousness, I got nothing but love for you, but I'm always gonna speak my mind, just like you always speak yours."
