Another day, another Kanye West rant on social media! This time around, the rapper shared that he will do whatever it takes to get Taylor Swift her master records back as he’s fighting the music industry!
This comes after Ye slammed the industry for how controlling it is of the artists, even comparing it to slavery!
Now, Kanye is focusing his whole attention on one particular case of an artist having a lot to lose because of the way the industry works.
It is, of course, none other than Taylor Swift, who lost all rights to her older albums when star manager Scooter Braun bought Taylor’s six-album catalog along with her former label.
As you know, the singer has slammed this move before, especially since she and Braun are massive enemies.
She claimed she had no idea her label would sell her masters, otherwise she would’ve bought them herself and has also accused Braun of doing this on purpose to control and bully her.
‘I learned about Scooter Braun’s purchase of my masters when it was announced to the world. All I could think about was all the incessant, manipulative bullying I have received at his hands for years,’ she wrote on her Tumblr at the time.
But Kanye thinks he can solve everything simply because Scooter Braun is ‘a close family friend!’
He tweeted: ‘I’M GOING TO PERSONALLY SEE TO IT THAT TAYLOR SWIFT GETS HER MASTERS BACK. SCOOTER IS A CLOSE FAMILY FRIEND.’
Indeed, Kanye West has worked on and off with Braun for years and he even used to be his manager.
Still, it’s safe to say that is not how things work!
Not to mention that, interestingly enough, Taylor actually slammed Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian in her original Tumblr post, claiming they were helping Scooter bully her as well.
‘Like when Kim Kardashian orchestrated an illegally recorded snippet of a call to be leaked and Scooter got his clients together to bully me about it online. Or when his client, Kanye West, organized a revenge-porn music video that strips my body naked. Now Scooter’s stripped me of my life’s work, that I was not given an opportunity to buy.’
