This morning, Kanye’s “Ultralight Beam” turned into an ultralight *stream* when he placed one of his Grammy awards in a toilet and – you guessed it – peed on it. The truth really is stranger than fiction.
Ye has been going OFF on Twitter, ranting about how Black artists in America are getting the short end of the stick. He believes NBA players and musicians, among others, are getting screwed out of millions due to lack of ownership and bad contracts.
He has come out strong against Sony and Universal Music Group, stating that he won’t make any more music until he owns his masters. Kanye is apparently speaking openly about the issue because he is one of the few people who has enough money and resources to freely do so.
Well, Universal isn’t having it, and has told him that they will not even give him a chance to buy his masters outright. Sound familiar? Taylor Swift faced a similar issue with Scooter Braun earlier this year – maybe she’ll be his running mate.
