In his recent series of tweets, Kanye West shared his full recording contract as well as a video of someone urinating on a Grammy Award placed in a toilet
On day two of his latest epic Twitter binge, Kanye West followed through on his complaints about the music industry and his demands to be released from his recording and music-publishing deals by t…
His recent tweets also included mention of his publishing deal with Sony/ATV, however he and the company — which he sued early in 2019, followed by a counter-suit from Sony/ATV — settled their legal battle late last year. West seemed to have Universal primarily in his sights on Wednesday.
On Tuesday West tweeted out an exchange with an unnamed adviser where they discussed his options for getting out of his label and publishing deals. Such contracts typically do not allow artists to withdraw from the deals whenever they want.Regardless, he called out multiple top executives by name over Twitter on Tuesday and Wednesday, including Vivendi chiefs Vincent Bollore and Arnaud de Puyfontaine, Universal chairman Lucian Grainge, Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer and veteran artist manager Irving Azoff, who is a close friend of the family of his wife, Kim Kardashian.
The documents also confirm that West himself is a label owner — his G.O.O.D. Music label has been distributed through Universal since 2004 — who presumably subjects his artists to the same standard contracts that are common throughout the industry.West and his family have publicly stated that he suffers from a bipolar disorder, and his recent behavior bears
many symptoms of a manic episode. He also tweeted a video of someone urinating on a Grammy Award placed in a toilet.“THIS MOMENT IS GOING TO CHANGE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR GOOD,” he wrote. “I FEEL SO HUMBLED AND BLESSED THAT GOD HAS PUT ME IN A STRONG ENOUGH POSITION TO DO THIS … EVERYONE KEEP PRAYING … ITS WORKING … I AM ON MY KNEES THIS MORNING.”

He's crazy and an asshole, but he's not wrong. It's long past time record labels were held to some level of accountability. JenUwin2020 Kanye is a marketing genius. A stable one, at that.
