In a lengthy video outburst on August 4, American rapper Khia unleashed Beyonce’s new album, Renaissance. The 45-year-old celebrity can be heard slamming the singer’s record in the video, which was initially published by Twitter user @itsKenBarbie.
“[She’s] trying to enchant the whole world, even the kids, with this old record.” You had over 100 authors, features and collaborations, and all you could think of was the devil’s music?”
It should be noted that the video has since been removed from @itsKenBarbie but is still available on other Twitter accounts. Later in her diatribe, Khia refers to the critically acclaimed record as a “failure.” The rapper then brought up the “stolen sample” of Kelis’ song Milkshake and accused the singer of interpolating it into her new song, Energy.
She also accused the Break My Soul singer of “stealing” a sample from Kilo Ali, referring to her song America Has A Problem, which samples his 1990 song Cocaine (America Has A Problem). Khia said in her video:
“Old bad Creole hoe stole from everyone.” Kelis was seen on these streets hot and angry after finding out that she was sampled on the record without her permission as she doesn’t own any sh*t because they stole from her too. We, the people, are not surprised or shocked by this. BE-HO-CE has been a thief and a liar with no real skill of her own.”
Beyonce’s latest album, which was released just five days ago, has already caused several problems, including the use of “insulting insults” and the use of multiple authors for a single song.
Everything there is to know about Khia and her short musical career.
Khia was born on November 8, 1976 and rose to prominence in 2001 with the release of her single My Neck, My Back. Dirty Down Records released the single, which was recorded in Florida. However, it became known through encouragement from club DJs and radio stations in Alabama, St. Louis, Georgia, and Kansas City. Artemis Records eventually signed the song and it became a national hit.
By 2004, however, Khia’s other songs had failed to impress and her career was thought to be over. Slow Motion by Juvenile and Soulja Slim has interpolated My Neck, My Back. Trick Daddy’s CD, Thug Matrimony, also featured the rapper.
Khia was punished on Twitter for yelling about Beyonce’s new album. Beyonce fans were outraged after Khia took down the Crazy in Love diva’s latest album in a lengthy rant video. While many fans mocked her for her own brief music career, others pointed out that Khia purposely trashed the star’s current album because it showcased the superstar’s collaboration with TS Madison, a former boyfriend.
Beyoncé’s new album has faced a barrage of criticism.
Khia and Kelis aren’t the only ones to criticize the superstar’s current album, Renaissance. On August 2, Brian Kilmeade, the anchor of Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, asked Raymond Arroyo to comment on Beyonce’s ongoing problem with using an abusive slur in one of her songs, Heated. Arroyo said the singer uses a number of slander and “dirty phrases,” including “sp*zz,” and that she “didn’t go far enough with the cleanup and lyrics adjustment.”
Khia talks about how Beyoncé’s #RENAISSANCE “flopped.”

Kilmaede responded and said:
“[Beyoncé] is a parent… We haven’t seen her in a long time. She was barely dressed and dancing around, and now she’s coming back more hideous than ever. releasing X-rated lyrics.”
So far, Beyonce has not publicly commented on the charges filed against her.
