Kanye West ranted about the music industry in his latest Twitter spree — and vowed not to release new music until his current deals expire.

While a lot of what he wrote has now been deleted, West began by saying he’s “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.” The end of the tweet included a skier emoji.

“Vivendi family, I’m in Calabassas. Come holla at me,” he continued, calling out the French mass media conglomerate that is the majority owner of the Universal Music Group, home to West’s GOOD label as well as Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam, which have put out West’s music. His publisher is Sony/ATV Music Publishing.

West then name-checked some of his peers he’s been engaged in disputes with, writing, “I need a publicly apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately … I’m Nat Turner … I’m fighting for us.” He also added, “I’m waiting to meet with [Shawn] Carter also,” referring to Jay-Z.

He said he missed his brothers, noting that he refuses “to argue with Black men on labels we don’t own… even Twitter.”

Another tweet that he posted and deleted said, “I’m the 2nd richest black man in America … I need all my people with me for us to get free.” He explained why he deleted it here:

But the focus, if there was one, was mostly on the music industry. He said he wants to see “everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony.” He said he’s “not gonna watch my people be enslaved,” saying the “music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships.” He called himself “the new Moses.”

He vowed that his children with Kim Kardashian — North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm — are “gonna own my masters.”

A little sleep didn’t change his position. Early Tuesday morning, he hopped back on Twitter to say that “no one from Universal or Sony has responded so it’s go time.” That was along with a screenshot of a text thread with Ye and an unidentified party in which they discuss him getting out of his deals and buying his masters — with another West feud mate, Taylor Swift, being part of the discussion amid her own troubles with her masters being sold.

West ended the conversation saying, “I’m not open to any form of business with Universal or Sony.”

Yahoo Entertainment has reached out to reps at Universal and Sony and will update this story when we hear back.

This isn’t West’s first dispute over his record deal. In 2019, he reached an undisclosed settlement with EMI Publishing over ownership of the songs he made after October 2010. However, months later, the lawsuit was back on — and then, soon after in January, settled again.

West fans have been waiting for a promised album, Donda, since July.

Before that, he released gospel-oriented albums, Jesus Is King and Jesus Is Born, in 2019 — tied to his Sunday Service series.

West also has been, ya know, running for president. Though that has been not just expensive but extremely challenging, and also taxing on his marriage.

Fox News' Brit Hume begs Trump to not push through Ginsberg replacement before the election

Brit Hume Fox News

Fox News contributor Brit Hume reacted to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by cautioning Republican leaders against replacing the liberal icon before the November election.

Hume made the remarks on Fox News after noting that both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have previously vowed to hypothetically have a nominee approved before the election.

“Lindsey Graham back in 2018… said that even if were were just into the primary season, he would not want to see a nominee advance in the election year,” Hume explained. “I think the circumstances may have changed since [McConnell] outlined that.”

“Our American institutions and political system are undergoing a stress test as difficult and intense as I have every seen,” he continued. “And I think the leaders have to consider what the effect would be a brutal and divisive confirmation battle into the into the middle of this.”

According to Hume, “the threshold question is whether to even make a nomination.”

“Trump’s instinct undoubtedly will be to go forward,” he observed. “But whether Mitch McConnell will feel that way as the majority leader of the Senate is unclear.”

“I really think that the threshold question is whether to put the country through this,” Hume said.

U.S. approves Anheuser-Busch deal to buy Craft Brew Alliance

By Diane Bartz

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department said on Friday it approved Anheuser-Busch’s <ABI.BR> plan to buy the shares of Craft Brew Alliance <BREW.O> that it does not already own.

The $220 million deal, which was announced in November, was approved on condition the companies sell Craft Brew Alliance’s Kona brand beer.

The Portland-based CBA’s other brands include Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Cisco Brewers, Redhook Brewery and Widmer Brothers Brewing.

Anheuser-Busch owned 31.2% of CBA before the deal was announced, and also distributed many of CBA’s brands.

“CBA’s diverse portfolio of national lifestyle brands and award-winning regional breweries are an excellent complement to our family of craft partners,” said Marcelo Michaelis, president of ABI’s Brewers Collective business unit.

The companies said in a release that closing was expected “in the coming weeks.”
