Kanye West Pees on His Grammy Award

Published

on

Famous rapper Kanye West posted a video of him peeing on one of his 21 Grammy Awards. He captioned the video, “Trust me, I won’t stop” on September 16th, 2020.

 In a series of tweets, he rants about music labels denying the artists the ownership of their records. He tweeted,

“When you sign a music deal you sign away your rights. Without the masters, you can’t do anything with your own music. Someone else controls where it’s played and when it’s played. Artists have nothing except the fame, touring and merch.”

Kanye posted 100+ pages of his contracts and agreements with his record label, Universal Music Group. 

In what he calls ‘modern-day slavery’, Ye said that a standard record is a trap to never have you recoup, and artists cannot do anything with their music without the masters.

He wrote, “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.” 

“We Need you Right Noooooow”

He also made an attempt to call out to other famous artists in the industry for support like Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Paul McCartney, U2 frontman Bono, and even his nemesis Taylor Swift, saying, “We need you right noooooow,”

One of his former collaborators, Hit-Boy, agreed with his sentiments and shared one of his tweets on Instagram. Kanye West responded to that saying, “….TRUST ME WE WILL NOT STOP…”.

A Fair Share for Black Artists

The “Jesus Walks” rapper doesn’t seem like he’s easing up an equal share of the pie for African-American artists or the masters’ ownership of his songs.

In a tweet, he said, “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.”

It is a pretty hectic time for the 43-year old musician who has bipolar disorder and hopes to become president. 

What do you think of Kanye’s sentiments?

Kanye West Seen Lashing Out At Chance The Rapper In Viral Clip

A clip has been circulating the Internet like wildfire, and in the clip, Kanye West can be seen yelling at Chance The Rapper.

The nearly one-minute long video is reportedly leaked footage from an upcoming documentary on Kanye West’s Donda album. The documentary is supposed to give a behind-the-scenes look at Kanye’s soon-to-drop and delayed project.

The clip of the fashion designer, producer, and rapper screaming at his frequent collaborator began doing social media rounds on Saturday, January 23.

The video, which is from last summer, was recorded in Kanye’s Wyoming compound during a studio session. The clip was apparently leaked out by Dame Dash, who is the narrator of the clip.

“My thing was, like, get rid of the people who are triggering him, just get ’em out of here and let’s just have fun being creative. So, you know, Kanye is finishing his album and there’s people around. Chance, honestly, because of what he was reading, he came through just to check Kanye. You know, again, Kanye deals with his issues at all times. They got into it, but they worked it out. At the end of the day, Chance was there just to be a friend,” said Dame in the clip.

Chance The Rapper had flown out to Wyoming to see his friend Kanye and to check on him, given all he was going through. At that period in time, there had been many tweets and a lot of talk regarding Kanye’s mental health after he had a mental breakdown at his own rally in South Carolina.

Kanye was at the time working on his album. Kanye and Chance can be seen arguing in the clip before Kanye yelled at Chance, “Sit your ass down and listen to the album or leave.”

After, Chance can be seen telling Kanye a joke, and Kanye bursts into laughter. Kanye didn’t take the manic episode to heart since he supported Kanye’s run for presidency.

The UFC 257 match between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor didn’t end as many had expected. 

The long-anticipated rematch saw Poirier take the crown, and a report has it that the boxer left McGregor in crutches. 

Many fans and contenders, including boxer Jake Paul, watched the Saturday night match keenly. 

After his loss, the Irish fighter Conor McGregor became the laughing stock. Memes about his loss surfaced on the internet, and now, Jake Paul made a video aimed at making fun of McGregor, and he also mocked the renowned boxer.

Jake Paul offered to give McGregor ten thousand dollars in cash instead of fifty million. 

Before becoming a boxer, Jake, who was a Youtuber, had his last fight late last year in November. He was fighting against Nate Robinson, a match he won.

Before Saturday’s match, Conor McGregor had not fought for a whole year, which could be one major factor as to why he lost.

Jake Paul hinted last Wednesday that he will be boxing in April and although he has not said against who, it is assumed it will be Conor McGregor. 

Would you want to see the two boxers, Jake Paul and Conor McGregor, take each other down? Let us know in the comments section below.

Supposed To Perform WAP At The Inauguration; Cardi B Says

This past Wednesday was a historic moment for the United States. The inauguration ceremony that saw the forty-sixth President Joe Biden and Vice president Kamala Harris taking office went down.

There were performances from many artists including Jennifer Lopez, Garth Brooks and Lady Gaga. Their outfits made bold statements, and so did their stunning performances.

Cardi B was sad about not being able to perform during the inauguration. The Bodak Yellow rapper was supposed to perform, wait for it, WAP during the inauguration ceremony. 

On Twitter Cardi wrote, ” Ugh I was supposed to perform wap at the inauguration today but I had a dentist appointment 😓😓….maybe next time.”

It could have been a way of joking about how good her song is. Just imagine if she had performed the adult-rated music for such an important political event. That would have been a show to remember. 

Plus, passing a memorable moment for a dentist appointment? 

Cardi B was rooting hard for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s win. Before the elections, she posted a series of videos giving opinions about how she agreed with the duo’s manifesto. 

Today we ask you, would you have wanted to see Cardi B perform WAP at the inauguration ceremony of President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris?
