Kanye West isn’t easing up off his push for Black ownership in enterprise, or his gripes about not getting a chance to own the masters to his songs.
Ye was going off again early Wednesday about African-Americans, by and large, not getting their fair share of the pie — instead, he says they’re mostly used by companies run by whites. He again points to the NBA and the music biz as examples.
In his new Twitter rant, he says, “We sat back and watched Nick Cannon get canceled 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.”
Insisting he’s made “multi billions,” Kanye says he’s one of the few who can openly speak on this issue without repercussion — the implication being he’s rich enough to where he doesn’t have to worry about a record label trying to muzzle him.
Speaking of that … Ye brings the convo back to himself and his own fight for ownership of his master recordings, blasting Universal Music Group and alleging they won’t even give him a chance to buy them outright — because he feels they know he can probably afford them.
Of course, this is the same argument his nemesis, Taylor Swift, made not too long ago … as one of Kanye’s associates pointed out to him on Tuesday morning.
Ye and Taylor on the same page??? 2020 strikes again.
