American Rapper Kanye West Peeing on a Grammy Award Has Internet Shook

"I'm putting my life on the line for my people", Kanye said and shared screenshots of his contracts with the music label.

The "Heartless" rapper, who has bipolar disorder, posted pages from 10 of his contracts and accused entertainment companies of exploiting Black artists. "I PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS THAT IT DONT LOOK LIKE THIS TOMORROW", he tweeted after posting the contracts that cover fees and royalties.

Kanye West went on a freaky rant on Twitter Wednesday, lashing out at the music industry, presenting a video of a Grammy award in the toilet as he urinated on it, images of pages and pages of recording contract, calling himself Baby Putin - and managing to violate Twitter rules sufficiently to have a tweet removed.

The video posted by the independent presidential candidate showed the Grammy award being pissed on, with a caption that read "Trust me ..."

West vowed not to release new music until he is free from his contract with Sony and Universal.

West's issues with Universal were backed by producer Hit-Boy, who worked with West on songs like "Niggas In Paris" and "Clique" and was signed to G.O.O.D.

"I know a lot of musicians are not allowed to say anything but I can't be muted or cancelled so I'm going to say everything as always", he tweeted, later adding, "We sat back and watched Nick Cannon get canceled and we go to play ball with Black Lives Matter on our backs ... brothers let's stand together for real ... there is no National Basketball Association or music industry without Black people ... fair contracts matter ... ownership matters".

Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian on the red carpet. The rapper in early July declared he was running for USA president in the November election under his self-styled Birthday Party, but has done little campaigning. It can be treated with a combination of medication and therapy. Following in the footsteps of his frequent nemesis Taylor Swift, the hip-hop titan is trying to get out of his contracts and buy his masters so he - and, eventually, his children - can own his official recordings. I promise I have more ideas.

"I need to see everybody's contracts at Universal and Sony". Someone else controls where it's played and when it's played.
