Home business UPDATED With Adidas, CAA, Gap Gone, Pressure is On Universal Music Group...

UPDATED TUESDAY 2:12PM: I’m told that Kanye’s record contract expired at the end of 2021 and he is no longer signed to UMG. But a more detailed statement may be coming…

EARLIER: Now that Adidas has finally dropped Kanye West from all business partnerships, the pressure is on for his remaining deals to be severed.

West’s talent agency, Creative Artists Agency, also dropped him yesterday. Previously, The Gap and Balenciaga cut ties as well.

West’s response has been to double down on antisemitic rhetoric over the last few days. Among other things, he was cited as the influence for a banner released over the 405 freeway in Los Angeles supporting antisemitism. He may have also been tied in some way to hateful leaflets distributed all over Western Los Angeles.

Now it’s Universal Music Group’s turn. West’s music is released on their Def Jam label. Today, Lucian Grainge, chairman and CEO of UMG, is the focus as he must end the company’s relationship immediately with West or face similar scrutiny as the other companies.

Keep refreshing…
