Kanye West urinates on Grammy award in rant calling the music industry ‘modern day slavery’ – Kanye West is taking “stream of consciousness” to a new level.
On Wednesday, amid a long and convoluted Twitter rant about the music industry being “modern day slavery,” the rapper and presidential hopeful appeared to urinate on one of his Grammy awards that was placed in a toilet. Another of his tweets — posting the phone number of a Forbes editor he called a “white supremacist” — was removed from Twitter altogether for violating the platform’s rules.
It’s no secret that West has been angry over his recording contracts, of which he says he has 10 in total with Universal Music Group (home to West’s GOOD label as well as Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam, which have put out West’s music). He is also upset with his deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. So today he posted the contracts online. There were pages upon pages of documents, uploaded one after the other, and too many to share here.
The “New Moses,” as West has dubbed himself, continues to make the point that the music industry is “modern day slavery,” seemingly because he does not have the ownership he wants of his music. His unhappiness extends beyond his own deal, however, leading him to lash out at the Recording Academy, which presents the Grammys, as well as apparently taking one of his 21 awards, placing in a toilet bowl and peeing on it.
“Trust me,” West, who also compared himself to Nat Turner, leader of a slave rebellion in the 1830s — captioned the video. “I won’t stop.
But his rant extended to a little of everything, as he does. Long upset with Forbesmagazine for taking so long to declare him a billionaire, he posted the phone number of editor Randall Lane. He urged his fans to call him, dubbing him a “white supremacist.” (Our screenshot omits the actual number.)
Twitter removed the tweet soon after, saying it “violated the Twitter Rules.”
West called for other peers to help him in his fight, from Bono to some he has continued to feud with for years like Taylor Swift and Drake. (Swift did not receive similar support from West when she was fighting over her masters last year.)
West did get producer Hit-Boy (real name: Chauncey Alexander Hollis), with whom he has feuded with, to agree with him on the topic. And then he clarified their feud.
