Kanye West is still going at it on Twitter, making it difficult to keep up with his rapidly firing thoughts. After sharing over 100 pages of his various business contracts with Universal Music Group/Sony, Ye took it up a notch and decided to really symbolize how much disdain he has for the music industry.
On Wednesday morning (September 16), amid his flurry of tweets, Ye shared a video of himself urinating on one of his 21 Grammy Awards.
He wrote in the caption, “Trust me … I WONT STOP.”

Ye continued his rant by calling out Forbes editor Randall Lane and essentially labeling him a racist. He also shared his phone number and wrote in the since-deleted tweet, “If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist … this is the editor of Forbes”

Kanye believes calling out UMG and Sony will make a significant impact on how all other artists are treated. In one of his Twitter sprees, he asked for anyone signed to the label to volunteer their contracts so he can help get them out of them.
Big Sean was among the first to sign up, tweeting, “FEEL FREE TO START WITH MINE.”
Ye explained God gave him this mission in another tweet, writing, “THIS MOMENT IS GOING TO CHANGE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR GOOD … I FEEL SO HUMBLED AND BLESSED THAT GOD HAS PUT ME IN A STRONG ENOUGH PETITION TO DO THIS … EVERYONE KEEP PRAYING … ITS WORKING … I AM ON MY KNEES THIS MORNING.”
The G.O.O.D. Music founder has been at war with his labels for quite some time and claims they’re holding his masters hostage.
“UNIVERSAL WONT TELL ME WHAT MY MASTERS COST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN AFFORD TO BUY THEM,” he wrote. “OK GUYS CHECK THIS OUT … I DONT HAVE A CONTRACT WITH UNIVERSAL … I HAVE TEN Rolling on the floor laughing THEY TRY TO BURRY US ALIVE.”
This is presumably not the end of Kanye’s battle with the industry — he’s promised not to stop until “ALL THE MUSICIANS WILL BE FREE.”
