Kanye West celebrated "Carnival" becoming his fifth No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 by ripping into everyone from Drake and Hailey Bieber to his former Yeezy sneaker collaborators at Adidas.

After his latest single “Carnival” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart Monday, you can’t tell Kanye West nothing.

Indeed, the rapper and hip-hop mogul celebrated his fifth chart-topper — which also features Ty Dolla $ign, Rich the Kid and Playboi Carti — by slamming everyone from Drake and Hailey Bieber to his former Yeezy collaborators at Adidas and all of his perceived enemies “that watched me have my kids taken out of my control.”

“Rich Ty Carti and the supporters that stood by us though everything This number #1 is for you it’s for the people who won’t be manipulated by the system,” wrote West in a since-deleted Instagram post full of “f–k you’s.”

Then West — who officially changed his name to Ye in 2021 — proceeded to rip into Adidas, which dropped his Yeezy line in 2022 after he had made a series of antisemitic and other controversial remarks.

“f–k adidas and everybody who works there or with them,” he wrote.

“Anyone who goes to school with anyone who’s [sic] parents work at adidas. Just know they tried to destroy me and here we are with the number 1 song in the world.”

West’s Insta diatribe continued by lashing out at those who backed Vogue contributing editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and Bieber for criticizing his “White Lives Matter” T-shirts in 2022.

“And F–k everybody at the fashion houses that sided with Gabby and Hailey Bieber,” he wrote. “F–k each and every one of yall.”

Then West — who has four children with ex-wife Kim Kardashian — spewed his venom toward “every so called Christian and so called friend or so called family member that watched me have my kids taken out of my control.”

Lastly, West — whose “Vultures 1” collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign debuted atop the Billboard 200 last month — had one last “f–k you” for Drake: “And it’s f–k Drake for taking [Lil] Durk right at the beginning of the Vultures role [sic] out.

“I’ll come back to yall if I think of more f–k you’s.”
