Kanye West has a message for Nick Cannon, Drake and Tyson Beckford: Keep my wife's name out of your mouths.

The outspoken rapper posted a series of videos on Instagram Thursday in which he addressed the trio and insisted that they stop talking about West's wife, reality star/entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West.

"Nick Cannon, Drake, Tyson, all that wasn't sitting right with me," West said in one of the videos.

Here's the back story:

Last month Kardashian West and Beckford got into it on social media after the gossip site The Shade Room posted a photo on Instagram of Kardashian West and Beckford, a model, had some thoughts about it.

"Sorry I don't care for it personally," the posting from his official account read. "She is not real, doctor f***ed up on her right hip."

Kardashian West shot back in the comments writing, "Sis we all know why you don't care for it."

Many interpreted her response as a suggestion Beckford is gay and there was backlash against her for what some viewed as her attempt to shame him.

Beckford, who is the father of a 20-year-old son and has had several high-profile relationships with women, has never said he's gay.

The situation with Cannon and rapper Drake is much more personal and sensitive.

The Internet has been speculating that Kardashian West is the now famous "KiKi" Drake raps about in his hit song "In My Feelings."

Not only that, but Twitter being Twitter, a whole other level with speculation ramped up on the social media site that the pair had "hooked up" and that Drake was low-key trying to let the world know that in his lyrics.

The Shade Room posted a video that included Nick Cannon (who dated Kardashian West in 2006) and DJ Akademiks discussing the ongoing feud between her husband, Kanye West, Pusha T, and Drake.

DJ Akademiks raised the possibility that Kardashian West and Drake had something physical going on at some point.

"As a fan, stepping back, there's something real personal Drake holds over that whole family, that he's like, 'Y'all don't want me to let this out,'" Cannon said.

Kardashian West stepped into the room (via the site's Instagram comments) to shut it all down.

"Never happened," she wrote. "End of story."

Drake has remained silent and the whole thing has apparently really bothered by West.

Ye started by addressing Cannon.

"Like, I understand that you used to date my wife, but you get in an interview, don't mention my wife," he said. "If someone brings my wife up, you say, 'Hey, I respect that man, I'm not speaking on that.' Don't be making no suggestions, like nobody f***ed my wife."

He then turned his attention to Drake.

West said he's taken accountability for not being more supportive of Drake in his beef with rapper Pusha-T, who is one of West's artists.

He in turn, it sounds like, would like Drake to set the record straight.

"What I'm looking for, for my spirit to take accountability is, the fact that there's people making rumors or thinking that you f***ed my wife, and you not saying nothing and you carrying it like that, that don't sit well with my spirit," West said.

West cited this example: Had he "had a girlfriend from Chicago, her name was Renita and then you was married to Rihanna, I wouldn't make no song called 'Riri.'"

"You're too smart for that, bro," West said, addressing Drake. "You know where that comes from. Don't make no record with nothing that could be confused."

Cannon posted his own video Thursday on Instagram letting West know his feelings.

"Nothing but love and respect for you, you know I always had that, but I honestly gotta say this my dude, I've never said anything disrespectful, harmful, in my opinion, to your marriage or your union," Cannon said. "I salute it, keep it going. But you not gonna tell me what I can and what I can't say."
