Kanye On Manic Twitter Rant This Morning: Bible Quotes, Attacks on Music Biz, And Keeping His French Couches “Museum Quality”

Share

Kanye West has Tweeted about 18 times between 8:30am and 9:40am this morning. There are lots of quotes from the Bible, including “Vengeance is mine.”

Kanye’s beef is with Universal Music and their corporate owner Vivendi. He wants the master recordings of his records back. The company owns them. Kanye is in a long financial deal with Universal and knows the details of his contract a lot better than we do. But he’s in a manic mode, he’s freaking out. It was only a few weeks ago that he declared himself a billionaire, but he may actually need money.

He Tweeted: I AM ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PEOPLE ON THE PLANET AND UNIVERSAL WONT TELL ME WHAT MY MASTERS COST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN AFFORD THEM … BLACK MASTERS MATTER

He also wrote: “EVERYONE AT UNIVERSAL AND VIVENDI PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN MY LEGAL POWER AND USE MY VOICE UNTIL ALL ARTIST CONTRACTS ARE CHANGED STARTING WITH GETTING MY MASTERS FOR MY CHILDREN I WILL NOT STOP I PROMISE YOU IM AM PETTY AND VERY PERSONAL”

Kanye is calling on his followers to “cover him” in massive prayers as he tries to dismantle the record business and invalidate contracts he’s signed. He’s using Michael Jackson’s similar “breakdown” just prior to his own massive legal problems in the early 2000s, when Michael called Sony Music and Tommy Mottola “the devil” and so on. Michael was in dire need of funds, owed Sony hundreds of millions of dollars in loans, and went on a ill-thought out public attack that got him absolutely nowhere.

According to his Twitter feed, Kanye has been calling Vivendi board members, and also called tech investor Ben Horowitz whose name rarely appears anywhere.

This might be taken more seriously but Kanye just Tweeted this picture of a beige French couch called a Royere and wrote: “I honestly need all my Royeres to be museum quality… if I see a fake Royere Ima have to Rick James your couch”

So, really.
