Kanye West Asks Taylor Swift For Help And Then Watch Him Do The Unexpected To His Grammy Award [VIDEO]
Kanye West is no stranger to going on Twitter rants, but his latest one definitely takes the cake for being the most bizarre. His tweets were followed up with a video of him doing the unthinkable to one of his 21 Grammy Awards.
Kanye West Goes Public With Beef Against Universal Music Group
Kanye literally posted a video of himself urinating on one of his Grammy Awards. Obviously the question on everybody’s minds is why? Over the past few days, the rapper has been going off about music ownership. He has very publicly bashed Universal Music Group and hinted at wanting to buy his way out of the company. “I know a lot of musicians are not allowed to say anything but I can’t be muted or cancelled so I’m going to say everything as always” he tweeted on September 16. “We sat back and watched Nick Cannon get cancelled and we go to play ball in a bubble with black lives matter on our backs … brothers let’s stand together for real … there is no NBA or music industry without black people … fair contracts matter … ownership matters.”
He continued his rant talking about how Universal will not let him buy his masters. Masters are the official original recording of a song. This comes after Kanye announced that he is “not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal.”
Kanye Exposed His Record Contracts With Universal
Kanye proceeded to tweet each page of his ten contracts with Universal Music Group. It’s a ton of pages to scroll through but he asked lawyers from all over the world to take a look at them.
Kanye called on other artists including his nemesis Taylor Swift to help him win this battle. Taylor who has been going through her own battle with record deals and obtaining the rights to her own music not surprisingly has not responded.
Kanye finished off his rant with another lengthy tweet saying “90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the ‘distribution fees’ many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying.” Truthfully, following along with Kanye’s tweets and comprehending everything is not so easy. Each day it seems like he has a new gripe with something in the world.
Kanye has continued his presidential run, even after his wife Kim Kardashian was reportedly fed up with his antics. A source told Page Six that Kim was “mortified” by Kanye’s recent behavior. She and the rest of the Kardashian clan believe that Kanye is suffering a bipolar episode. The pair previously hit a rough patch in their relationship and went on a family trip to make things better.
