Kanye West Called Out for Exploiting Artists


Over the past few weeks Kanye West has positioned himself as the new savior for recording artists on a mission to restructure the music industry where the artists own their masters and are paid more equitably [click here if you missed that].

Maybe Kanye should start with his own label...

After Yeezy started making noise about the unfair advantage labels have over artists a music producer came forward claiming Kanye was trying to put him into the same type of contract.

I'm rewatching The Wire and I think Season 2 is really underrated. I forgot how great this show was.

If you like the Wire check out Top Boy on Netflix. That show's the shit. Just be sure to start with the 2011 episodes before you get into the 2019 season.

This raggedy nigga is the typical shiesty ass Gemini, talks out of both sides of his neck, while he so busy attempting to position himself as savior, he's also a predator. Folks should just ignore this touched in the head fuck having a manic breakdown, I guess his mk ultra programming is malfunctioning. I am so happy this bastard never got a penny of my coins, I have always seen through this fraud and his carefully manufactured image.

Off topic I am so very happy for this Saturn/Pluto/Jupiter alignment. This planet is going to be crunked for the next few years, we are in the process of seeing this wicked "white supremacy system" collapse under the weight of it's wickedness. What has been sown will now be reaped Mother Karma is about to start kicking ass and taking names and I welcome her drop kicking all hoes, who are guilty is mistreating their fellow human beings. There will be a time of universal love among all people, even if the majority of one race is wiped off this planet, the one's that have caused the most chaos must now reap what they have sown. And those of us caught out there will have to also be faced with our own karmic debt. These current planetary alignments will most certainly transform this planet and it's people. The end of this retarded ass celebrity worship is finished as is a lot of other ridiculous worship and I throw open my arms to these much needed changes.

The sad part is nobody will pay attention because it's Kanye and folks are so desperate for fame they still won't bother to read contracts.

Awwe shit!! Now yall gonna have me bingin' I Love "The Wire" & Now I'm gonna add "Top Boy". "Snow Fall" is good too. RIP John Singleton. He always delivered provocative movies.

On topic...Ofcourse Kanye is the pot trying to manipulate ppl by playin victim. That why my comments on the Jay Z/masters post that Ye would've done the same. He really offered this brother $35K without publishing...That's beyond insulting & I'm glad "Adamn killa" called out his hypocrisy

@10:10am I love Snowfall. I'm about to go watch it again. The Wire was a good show too. It's a shame they took it off Prime. I've never heard of the other show Top Boy.

Look if black artists specifically haven't learned from some savy pioneers like Ray Charles, Prince, Master P & others who maintained their publishing, masters and/or independence, then it's really hard to empathize. They fall for the quick upfront money every time. And that's cool but you have to have an exit strategy when you take that money & they recoup later. I can't believe ppl still in 2020 sign important contracts without their own attorney. If that's a deal breaker than thats a guft in disguise. I mean how fukin stupid & gullible can people be.

Godfather of Harlem is excellent. Check it out on Amazon Prime. Lovecraft Country on HBO is craaaaaaazy good!

As for Koonye he needs to be institutionalized for awhile.

^^^God Father of Harlem is excellent!!! Its connecting a lot of political dots from that era....Loved when his daughter slit that mf's throat!!!

"Lovecraft" i watched 2 episodes and Im fukin lost..I'm gonna start again and give it another try since errrbody talkin bout it

Kanye is distracting us from voting. A week or so ago he was running for president now he talking about contracts. He us trying to distract the black community with this shit for his friend and daddy. What he saying maybe true but like this dude said what about his artists. Does his rules apply to them? This us nothing more than a distraction. We need to stay focus on this election. Just my opinion.

@10:23AM, Top Boy is a British series set in the London projects. A lot of the characters have a Caribbean and African background so if you're not familiar with the British-Jamaican dialect you may need to watch with the closed caption on.

I'll definitely have to check out some of the other recommendations on here.

NiyabinghiWerewolfObeahWoman said...

Damn I'm going to have to check out Top Boy sounds like a series I might like.

This tragic nigga is all over the place. In Wyoming he is the musical messiah. In California he a prisoner of the Kris Jung Un Regime. In Chicago he is getting the slaves Woke. all while casting his name on the ballot to be the president. WTF run for POTUS on their spare time. If he don't sit his ass down and take his fucken meds like he needs them. Something is wrong and people are denying this shit. Kim is letting it happen because when this nigga lights the match and blows himself up she never has to sell another skinny panty again. YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS PERIODT.

@9:42 I am GEMINI and I am nothing like Kanye..
My feelings are so hurt..😥
We Gemini’s get such a bad rap!!

Felicia said...

@10:10 it was 35k with publishing.. Please reread. It still was an insult, but it’s important to pay attention to facts. Just how you read it and misinterpreted it, happens everyday. Even I mess up. So it was not to put you down.

@Felicia Don't feel bad. Gemini women got their shit too but Gemini men are MUCH worse than the women.

NiyabinghiWerewolfObeahWoman said...

Felicia don't feel bad, every single sign has their positive and negative traits, Gemini's make the best friends, they will be loyal to their friends will be very generous. However Trump, Pence , Azelia and Koonye is making y'all Gemini's look bad in these zodiac street. Everything in this universe has it's positive and negative, the difference is the Maat balance. Anyone or anything lacking balance vibrate at the negative polarity.
