Kanye West tweeted an eight-second video that shows what appears to be him urinating on a Grammy Award with the caption, “Trust me … I WONT STOP.” The video point-of-view shows someone with white and black shoes and light blue pants urinating on a Grammy Award thrown into a toilet.
West has not directly said if he is the one urinating on the Grammy Award. He doesn’t speak in the video, but there’s conversations from other people going on in the background. The video is also too blurry to tell if West’s name is on the actual Grammy Award itself.
West leaked his Universal contracts
This tweet comes after a series of tweets from West on September 16. Prior to this tweet, West released a series of screenshots that document his ten Universal contracts. Originally, West attempted to release his ten Universal contracts in one PDF, but he later tweeted, “I have to tweet page by page The PDF is not loading on twitter.”
Before individually tweeting screenshots of his contracts, West explained the two-hour time gap between his announcement and the actual screenshots. “You guys it took me so long to screen grab all my contracts Here they are,” he wrote.
For the next 20 minutes, West shared his various contracts one by one. In total, he leaked over 100 pages of contracts.
West slammed Forbes editor Randall Lane
The tweet – which has since been removed by Twitter as “This Tweet violated the Twitter rules” – read, “If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist … this is the editor of Forbes.” West attached a screenshot of a contact in his phone listed as “Randall Forbes,” including the phone number.
West claimed to release new music
Right after the contract screenshots, West announced also announced that he’ll be releasing new music. But when he uploaded the first song, it just appeared as a title, “01 This Is The Glory – 07.14.20 Ye Edit.mp3” with no download.
West has yet to address either of those tweets nor the fact that there appears to be no file attached to the second tweet. But West did transition to his greater message of encouraging freedom and independence for musicians. “ALL THE MUSICIANS WILL BE FREE,” he wrote.
West released Jesus Is King in October of 2019 and hasn’t share new music since then. His newest album Donda: With Child has yet to be released.
West previously accused Universal and Sony of slavery
The rapper called himself the “New Moses” on September 14 in a series of tweets. He tweeted, “I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony. I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved. I’m putting my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships. I’m the new Moses.”
West also declared he’ll be pausing his music career with Sony and Universal. “I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal,” he wrote. “On God … in Jesus name … come and get me.”
Before temporarily ending his twitter spree, West assured his followers that he wants to continue to fight for musicians. He wrote, “TRUST ME I WONT STOP UNTIL ALL IS FAIR TRUST ME FROM NAT YE AKA BABY PUTIN.” The rapper continued, “HI GUYS … TRUST ME WE WILL NOT STOP … HITBOY FIRST TO STAND UP … I DIDN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HIM PRODUCING FOR BEYONCÉ … I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE FACT HE WAS SIGNED TO ME AND I DIDN’T KNOW BUT I KNEW JAY AND BEYONCÉ AND HIT-BOY … JUST FOR CLARITY.”
