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”.

‘Moonbase 8’ Series Trailer Released
Showtime network has released the official teaser for its upcoming series “Moonbase 8”. The Fred Armisen-created comedy follows a group of mediocre astronauts living in a NASA Moon Base Simulator (a test environment), who vie for the chance to be selected to go on their first lunar expedition.
The official synopsis, according to Showtime, reads: “Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, it follows eager astronauts Skip (Armisen), Rook (Heidecker) and their leader Cap (Reilly) as they attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.”
Set to run for six episodes, “Moonbase 8” does not have a premiere date yet but it is “coming soon”, according to the teaser.
58 years ago today JFK said, “We choose to go to the moon.” 🌑
