Kanye West Says He Won’t Release New Music Until Sony And Universal Release Him From His Contract

September 15, 2020 / Posted by:

For those keeping track, Donda: With Child is still undelivered when by this point, Kanye West should already be thinking about getting on a waiting list if he wants it to get into a good preschool. But I get it, Kanye’s been very, very, very busy. Not only is he running a [insert adjective of your choice] presidential campaign, according to a slew of recent tweets, he’s also Moses, Nat Turner, and “the 2nd richest black man in America” who is tirelessly working to free his people. His “people” being exclusive to any other rich Black man in America. So you’ll have to excuse him if his album won’t be out until Sony and Universal release him from his contract and Drake apologizes to him for, I don’t know, being richer than him I guess. Folks, as usual, it’s a mess.

According to Variety, Kanye’s most recent active cycle (he’s like a volcano that spews molten bullshit) began with a prayer for Jesus and the Vivendi family to come and get him and don’t forget to bring the skis because he’s in Calabasas? I’m sure it made sense at the time.

Kanye West took a break from his presidential campaign to make some declarations about his music career Monday, saying that he will refuse to release any new music until his record company, Universal Music Group, and his publisher, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, free him from their deals.

He quickly followed that up by saying that Drake and J. Cole must apologize to him — although whether this was a further condition for releasing new music was unclear — and asking for a meeting with Jay-Z.

“I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal,” he tweeted. “On God … in Jesus name … come and get me.” The statement was followed by an emoji of a skier.

“Vivendi family I’m in Calabassas,” he added. “Come holla at me.”

Page Six reports that the Vivendi family is a French conglomerate that owns Universal and therefore by extension owns Kanye’s GOOD label “as well as Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam, which put out the bulk of his records before the GOOD imprint was established.” Because when you’re an important businessman, you conduct business the way God intended, by tweeting shit into the void. If that doesn’t work, you text somebody and then tweet that text. He also used this method to get in touch with Jay-Z on the matter writing “I’m waiting to meet with Sean Carter also” before correcting himself with “My bad I meant Shawn … no disrespect to my big bro.” It’s just how business is done when you’re at the level Kanye’s at. Variety reports:

On Tuesday morning, he added to his comments, posting a text exchange with an unidentified business adviser on his options for his catalog. The adviser says he and West can argue that Universal and Sony Music, with whom West has longstanding recorded-music and publishing deals respectively, did not support him fully and can be sued for breach of contract. They then explore the potential price of his recorded-music catalog (the adviser claims, without citing evidence, that West’s catalog would be worth more than the $300 million that Scooter Braun’s investment company paid for Big Machine Records and Taylor Swift’s master recordings) or the possibility of a joint venture with Universal Music, which owns West’s masters. West tweeted, “No one from Universal or Sony has responded so it’s Go time.”

Apparently, somebody from Vivendi didn’t mind setting their croissant aside long enough to hit speakerphone and let Kanye rant for a while.

This is one helluva logic problem. They need to include some Kanye Tweets on the SATs. For example “If Tesla had Twitter and Elon Musk tells Kanye who Tesla was, then …” Maybe he should consider doing what Prince did and drop the name Kanye and just go by a symbol. For Kanye, I suggest a little line drawing of a dick.

Also in Monday night’s posts, West went after some of his contemporaries in the music world. “I need a publicly apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately … I’m Nat Turner … I’m fighting for us.”

Ok, I’ve stalled long enough. Shall we get on with it? I’ll make it brief, promise. Kanye continued:

I guess while slavery may have been a choice, playing in the NBA is mandatory (prayers up for Kevin Hart). Kanye’s learned and nuanced understanding of the transatlantic slave trade continues to impress. Lord knows Moses did more for enslaved people in the Americas than Harriet Tubman ever did! I’m sorry, did I say “people” again? I obviously meant men. The number of Tweets mentioning “brothers” are too many to count, but it’s safe to assume Kanye is unaware of how babies are made. Although, if I was married into the Kardashian Klan, I might try to forget that women exist too. At least we now know who wears the Skims in that household!

There’s more from the savior of Black men living under the shackles of incredible wealth, but I think there’s enough here to solidify my decision not to vote for Kanye in the upcoming Presidential election. I just don’t get the impression that he has the interests of all Americans at heart. He’s also too bossy for my taste. He comes off as a little [insert adjective of your choice], if you know what I mean.
