Kanye West declares himself ‘the new Moses’ as he compares music industry to slave ships

Published

on

Kanye West has described himself as “the new Moses” as he compared the music industry and NBA to “modern day slave ships”.

In a trademark flurry of tweets, the rapper and fashion designer ruled out releasing a new album on his current record label.

He had originally been set to launch album Donda: With Child – named after his late mother – in July but the date passed without a release.


West now said he would not release any new music under his current contract

He tweeted: “I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal … On God … in Jesus name … come and get me.”


He has previously sued the SONY/ATV-owned EMI, which has administered the rights to his songs since 2003, and Universal Music Group, which owns the Def Jam Recordings label.

West, who frequently airs his grievances on Twitter, then compared the music industry and NBA sports league to “modern day slave ships”.

He said: “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.”

The shoe entrepreneur asked for a public apology from rappers J. Cole and Drake, comparing himself to slave rebellion leader Nat Turner and saying: “I’m fighting for us.”

He also said he was waiting for a meeting with Shawn Carter, AKA Jay-Z

West, who is devoutly religious, added: “Let’s stop killing each other … let’s show God that we are Gods people … my ego gets the best of me too… God doesn’t measure us by money in his kingdom … let’s love each other… I love my brothers and I miss my friends … real talk.”

West launched a highly publicised bid for the White House in July, but the campaign has been hampered by a series of failures to make the ballot before deadline in key states.

He has, however, made the ballot in 12 states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota and Mississippi.

Before announcing his own presidential run, West had publicly backed Donald Trump.

The Emmys turned into a massive Schitt’s sweep for Schitt’s Creek on Sunday night, and backstage, creator Daniel Levy discussed the potential for a Schitt’s Creek movie.

“To be honest this is the best way we could have ever ended the show,” Levy began, before changing tack to say that a movie isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility. “If there is an idea that pops into my head it has to be really freaking good because this is a nice way to say goodbye. Fingers crossed we get a nice idea popping into our head soon… I would love to work with these people again.”

Levy and the entire main cast were gathered together in Canada to celebrate a historic night for the Pop TV show and presided over a raucous backstage Q&A.

“What an absolutely unbelievable way to end our series, I don’t think you could ever ask for a better conclusion than tonight, we are absolutely thrilled,” Levy said.

The final question backstage was arguably the most important one, directed at Catherine O’Hara: Which wig would Moira wear to the Emmys?

“For the premiere, Moria went with her own look, because when it’s a serious moment and there’s no facade needed, Moria lets herself show,” O’Hara said.
