Kanye West tweeted yet another epic rant. This time, he lashed out at other artists like Drake and said he would not release music until he was released from his current recording contract
At least Kanye West isn't tweeting about personal issues between his wife, 39-year-old Kim Kardashian, and his mother-in-law. Chris Jenner… This time, he casts a stone at the music industry by saying that artists are "slaves" to their record companies, naming other musicians, including Drake, JAY-Z and Travis Scott… 43-year-old Kanye's first salvo on September 14th was a tweet: "I won't release any more music until I finish my contract with Sony and Universal … God … in the name of Jesus … come and get me," and included a skier emoji.
Then he demanded: “I need a public apology from J. Cole and Drake to start immediately … working with Nat Turner… I fight for us,”referring to the black slave who led a slave rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia in 1831. It is unclear what he is doing with Drizzy and J. Cole and why they need to publicly apologize to him. West's last sign of feud with Drake came in January 2020 when he appeared on a new track. Future "Life Is Good" and rhymed: "Niggas should get away from my release, yeah, … this is fame, not influence, I don't even know what the matter is, take care of your mouth." In June 2018, Kanye released the album less than three weeks before Drake's highly anticipated double LP Scorpion.
Kanye then tweeted and then deleted, "I'm looking forward to meeting Sean Carter too." Instead, he replaced it with "Bad, I meant Sean … no disrespect for my big brother," referring to the real name of 50-year-old JAY-Z. The two men have been in some reservations since Kanye performed a series of live performances against HOV in 2016. Yeezy tweeted: "I'm not an industrial brother … I don't care … I serve Christ … we need the healing of the world … my brothers … I refuse to argue with blacks about labels we don't own … even on twitter."
Kanye, who suffers from bipolar disorder, recently told 39-year-old Nick Cannon on the Cannon's Class podcast that he is ready to show people, including Jay, "what he is worth." “I think people call me crazy, so I'm going to show them, I'll even show my older brother that I'm not crazy,” Kanye said. “I’m going to show Jay-Z, you know, I’ll show him that, you know, my value, that you can be diagnosed and people can point fingers at you, and you can still be an important citizen and you are still you can have value."
