Kanye West continues to exhibit bizarre behavior on social media. For the past three days, West has used Twitter to rant about slavery, J.Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, the NBA, and he compared himself to Moses.
West posted the comment, “Trust me…I won’t stop.”
During his career, West has won 21 Grammy Awards with 69 nominations. He stands as one of the most prolific Grammy Award-winners in rap history, a genre that was often snubbed by the award show in the past.
West has also been critical of music industry contracts where new artists are given a small percentage of their overall earnings from record sales. And artists also rarely own their masters when they sign to a major record label.
West’s latest post has caused a firestorm on social media as some have called him out for his behavior. Others have applauded him for speaking out against the music industry.
Kanye West, calling himself Baby Putin now, is going through a crisis where nobody around him is willing or able to pull him out of it.
He needs help.

Even Beyoncé doesn’t own her masters but the point is to smarten up. Kanye was still taking advances for videos in Cruel Summer? SMH! After all that popping off!?

Women are having their uteruses ripped out of their body by the government but Kanye is trending cause a conglomerate dared to provide him funds to perform and distribute his art and one of these things we should be more outraged about and it’s most definitely not the latter

I’ll be honest. I thought Kanye was way too dumb and crazy to be president. But then he made a video of himself pissing on his Grammy…
