Kanye West posts video of himself peeing on one of his Grammys
Kanye West gave one of his Grammys a golden shower.
In the midst of a Twitter meltdown on Wednesday, the “Jesus Walks” rapper, 43, tossed one of his 21 trophies into the toilet and peed all over it.
“Trust me … I WONT STOP,” he captioned the video, which he shared on Twitter after publishing screenshots of his contract with Def Jam Music Group, which is a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.
West’s off-putting video came amid a firestorm of tweets about musicians’ lack of rights in owning their master recordings.
“The artist deserve to own our masters … artist are starving without tours … Ima go get our masters … for all artist … pray for me,” he tweeted.
West even called upon Taylor Swift, who last year publicly lambasted Big Machine Records for selling her masters to Scooter Braun, to help aid his mission.
“Bono can I get a retweet Love you Paul can I get a retweet love you Drake Kendrick even Taylor,” he wrote. “We need you right noooooow.”
Swift, 30, hasn’t publicly responded to West’s call for help.
Twitter later required West to remove one of tweets in which he revealed the phone number of Forbes’ Chief Content Officer Randall Lane. The platform hid the tweet from the public view, but West won’t be able to tweet again until he deletes it himself.
As of publishing time, West’s latest tweet read, “90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the ‘distribution fees’ many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying.”
