Redd was asked if SNL would ever touch on the feud in one of its comedic sketches to which he acknowledged that “there is a serious layer to that situation that I just won’t make fun of,” however he said that he’s open to touching on the rapper’s “ego .”
“I’m not making fun of his mental health. You know, I have my mental health issues myself, so I’m very aware of those things,” he said. “His irresponsibility of it is what I make fun of.”
Redd said he has been “sitting on” some quips about West, saying, “I’ve been on the phone with like our mutual friends and again, when it’s gotten really public and tight, it’s just better not to like put your friend in a weird situation by antagonizing a situation more than you need to.”

“I hope they figure that out soon ’cause I ain’t got nothing to do with none of this,” he said of the drama. “You always want to make sure on both sides of it—even though me and Ye aren’t friends—I want the best for that dude, too.”
