Kanye West calls music industry and National Basketball Association

This morning, the rapper followed up on last night's tweets by sharing a screenshot of a message with an unknown person discussing options to release himself from his deals with Universal Music Group and Sony/ATV Music Publishing.

"I'm not putting no more music out till I'm done with my contract with Sony and Universal. On God.in Jesus name. come and get me". In another tweet, West asked "to see everybody's contracts at Universal and Sony" before proclaiming that he isn't going to watch his people be ensalved, calling himself "the new Moses".

The Independent has contacted Universal and Sony for comment.

Aside from taking aim at the music labels, West brought up issues with Drake and J Cole.

West, who is devoutly religious, added: "Let's stop killing each other ... let's show God that we are Gods people ... my ego gets the best of me too... I love my brothers and I miss my friends. real talk".

Before that career assessment, West first logged in Monday evening (September 14) to write in some now-deleted tweets, "I need a publicly apology from J. Steve's a good man Trav is a good man.my brothers let's rise up. we don't even own these companies".

"The music industry and the National Basketball Association are modern day slave ships", Kim Kardashian's husband continued.

"I'm the 2nd richest black man in America ..." I'm putting my life on the line for my people.

In the flood of tweets, Kanye also spoke about meeting with Jay-Z, Variety writes.
