Kanye West shares clip of herself urinating at Grammy Award amid feud with music labels

Kanye URINATES at Grammy Award, calls the music industry a ‘modern day slave ship’ because African Americans don’t own their music and pledges to stop releasing songs until released from Universal and Sony contracts

  • West shared the shocking images on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon
  • The rapper is furious that most artists don’t own their masters (the rights to their own work), and has destroyed the fabric of the music industry
  • West wants to buy his masters from Universal and tries to cancel his contract with the label
  • He has vowed not to make any new music until he owns his own masters and is released from several contracts signed over the years

Kanye West has shared shocking images of himself at a Grammy Award as he ‘competes’ with the Universal and Sony labels to try to regain the rights to his own music.

The 43-year-old rapper posted the vision on his Twitter feed Wednesday afternoon, showing one of his 21 Grammys in a toilet bowl.

‘Trust me … I WON’T STOP,’ West captioned the clip, referring to his current attempt to take ownership of his masters – otherwise known as the copyright to his original songs.

On Monday, West began attacking the fabric of the music industry, stating that musicians actually had little to no power because record labels owned all of their work.

He targeted his Universal and Sony labels and promised not to release any new music until he was released from his contracts with them.

“ In the streaming world, master property is everything … that’s most of the income … in COVID, artists need our masters, ” he wrote.

“Artists starve without guided tours … I’m going to get our masters … for all the artists … pray for me.”

In a stabbing tweet on Tuesday, West also broke the strict contracts that black NBA players maintained, stating, “The music industry and the NBA are modern slave ships, I am the new Moses.”

When he took to Twitter again on Wednesday morning, the rapper echoed the same sentiment, saying, ‘There is no NBA or music industry without black people … fair contracts are important … ownership matters’.

West also shared screenshots of a private contract he signed with Universal in 2011, just minutes after he tweeted, “ I feel so humble and blessed that God has put me in a strong enough position to do this … pray. It works … I’m on my knees this morning. ‘

Then he seemed to turn directly to black artists, claiming that the company needed a makeover.

“ We’ve been comfortable not having what we deserve … they [record labels] allow us to make some money by touring, some gold chains, some alcohol, some girls and fake numbers feeding our ego … but we don’t have our masters, ‘he wrote.

He further accused the media of “trying to kill” black heroes, including Michael Jackson.

During his Twitter rant on Wednesday, West also stated that he was too powerful to be “ muted or canceled, ” and stated that he was rich enough to buy his masters from Universal and Sony.

“Universal doesn’t want to tell me what my masters will cost because they know I can afford to buy them,” he teased in a tweet shared shortly after 9am.

West has a reported net worth of $ 1.3 billion. The cost of its masters is likely to exceed $ 300 million.

In 2018, Scooter Braun bought the Big Machine Label Group for that price and acquired nearly all of Taylor Swift’s masters in the process.

In the meantime, West went on to share some Bible verses before writing, “I KNOW MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS ​​CHRIST WILL DO AND PUNISH ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE IN UNLAWFUL CONTRACTS.”

He added, ‘I will do everything within my legal power and use my voice until all artist contracts are changed, starting with getting my masters for my kids. I will not stop, I promise you. I am narrow-minded and very personal. ‘

He also addressed the Black Lives Matter movement by tweeting, ‘BLACK MASTERS MATTER’.
