Kanye West, The ‘New Moses’ in Latest Tweetstorm

Controversial Kanye is back. On Monday, the rapper aired his grievances in a series of tweets on matters including plans to halt new music releases, claims of being the “new moses” and seeking apology from industry counterparts, Drake and J. Cole.

“I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal”, Ye’s first tweet read, claiming that the music industry was a modern-day slave ship – and the NBA too! The self-proclaimed “new moses” further requested “to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony”, as he was not “gonna watch my people be enslaved”.

Seeking an apology from Drake and J Cole from a past spat, Kanye, in a now-deleted tweet also compared himself to Nat Turner: “I need a publicly apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately. I’m Nat Turner. I’m fighting for us”

Last year, Kanye threw shade at Drake on Pusha T’s “What Would Meek Do?” stint saying, “Drizzy wearing Yeezy on the low though, only repping Nike for promo, the company growing faster than Flo-Jo, and we did it with no logo”. J Cole was not left behind as he was also referenced, “You heard Cole on that song he was tryna hate”.
