Kanye West wants to learn from some of the greats.

The polarizing artist was doing some early morning tweeting on Tuesday (September 22) when he revealed he’s been trying to get in touch with Master P and Birdman to discuss being a fully independent artist. Considering the massive success the moguls found with their respective No Limit and Cash Money imprints in the ’90s, Kanye wants to pick their brain as he continues his quest to “change the music industry for good.”

“Been trying to connect with Master P and Baby,” he tweeted. “I’ve always felt they understood how to be independent.”

Ye also named 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke, adding he believed both Luke and P were completely without label support.

“I believe Master P and Uncle Luke we’re fully independent,” he said. “They pressed they own vinyl.”

Ye has been on his quest for independence in recent weeks, tweeting he wants to be freed from his contract with Universal Music Group and Sony.  He even sharing all 10 of his current contracts.
