West’s Twitter account remains on lockdown because of his posting private contact info for Forbes’ chief content officer while calling him a “white supremacist,” although the urination video remains on the site.
Hit songwriter Diane Warren laid into Kanye West on Twitter, after the rapper/presidential candidate posted a video of himself — or someone — urinating on a Grammy Award that had been placed in a toilet.
“How vile and disrespectful of U,” Warren wrote. “This was given to U by your peers out of respect for your work and U r literally pissing on them. I’ve won one Grammy and I’m forever grateful and humble that my peers found me worthy of it.”
Assuming that was indeed one of West’s own Grammys getting the dowsing, he should still have plenty of unsoiled trophies to keep on his mantle. Warren made reference to West’s inordinately high career total, writing, “He has 21 Grammys this white bitcb (sic) got one Haha.”
Reached for further comment by Variety, the songwriter said: “Maybe it just pissed me off.”
Warren — someone who is known for being acidic in her own posts, and who, unlike West, is no MAGA supporter — further tweeted: “With all that peeing, now Trump wishes he had picked Kanye as VP and he could have been that Grammy!!”
Despite continuing to accrue Grammy nominations each year, the last of West’s 21 wins came back in 2013, which may help explain his lack of reverence for the honor.
West was expected to be a contender in the Grammys’ gospel categories this year for his two Christian-themed albums, “Jesus Is King” and “Jesus Is Born,” although how his desecration of a Grammy will sit with the gospel nominating committees would seem to be an open question at this point.
West’s Christian albums were recently nominated for three Dove Awards by the Gospel Music Association, many of whose voters also vote for the Grammys.
The, ahem, streaming video remains live on Twitter, unlike another tweet he posted Wednesday, which reportedly caused Twitter to temporarily lock his account. He posted what he said was the personal phone number of Forbes chief content officer Randall Lane, writing, “If anyone wants to call a white supremacist … this is the editor of Forbes.”
Twitter was said to have frozen his account — which in the last couple of days had been posting up to a hundred-plus provocative posts a day — until he voluntarily agreed to remove the post and agree not to commit further violations of privacy, as is typical when users post private info in an attempt to dox an adversary.
West’s other recent contentious posts have not brought up any enmity for the Grammys as an issue. He has been on a tear against Universal Music Group and Sony/ATV Music Publishing, saying he will not release new music until he is let out of his label and publishing contracts, respectively.
He urged Universal to contact him but then said he would not speak with UMG chairman-CEO Lucian Grainge, insisting he would not talk with anyone at the sub-billionaire level. Comparing himself to Nat Turner and saying he is “the new Moses,” West has been urging other Black artists to join him in an uprising at being held to contracts — and even called upon Taylor Swift to join him, on top of Drake, Jay Z and others he singled out. So far, no major artists have spoken out in support of his crusade.
The campaign to be freed of contractual obligations and own his master recordings seems to have superseded his presidential campaign, which has not been mentioned among the hundreds of tweets in recent days. The closest West came to addressing politics in any way in the latest tweetstorm was to refer to himself as “baby Putin.”
Although, as Warren readily points out, she has only won one Grammy (for “Because You Loved Me”), she has received plenty of Recording Academy acknowledgement over the years in the form of 15 total nominations, for songs including “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” “How Do I Live,” “Till It Happens to You” and “Stand Up for Something,” all of which were also Oscar-nominated.
Kanye West declares himself ‘the new Moses’ as he compares music industry to slave ships.
In a trademark flurry of tweets, the rapper and fashion designer ruled out releasing a new album on his current record label.
He had originally been set to launch album Donda: With Child – named after his late mother – in July but the date passed without a release.
West now said he would not release any new music under his current contract
He has previously sued the SONY/ATV-owned EMI, which has administered the rights to his songs since 2003, and Universal Music Group, which owns the Def Jam Recordings label.
West, who frequently airs his grievances on Twitter, then compared the music industry and NBA sports league to “modern day slave ships”.
He said: “I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved I’m putting my life on the line for my people The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships I’m the new Moses.”

The shoe entrepreneur asked for a public apology from rappers J. Cole and Drake, comparing himself to slave rebellion leader Nat Turner and saying: “I’m fighting for us.”
He also said he was waiting for a meeting with Shawn Carter, AKA Jay-Z.
West, who is devoutly religious, added: “Let’s stop killing each other … let’s show God that we are Gods people … my ego gets the best of me too… God doesn’t measure us by money in his kingdom … let’s love each other… I love my brothers and I miss my friends … real talk.”
West launched a highly publicised bid for the White House in July, but the campaign has been hampered by a series of failures to make the ballot before deadline in key states.
He has, however, made the ballot in 12 states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota and Mississippi.
Before announcing his own presidential run, West had publicly backed Donald Trump.
Kanye West says he’s the ‘new Moses’ in Twitter rant and demands apology from Drake amid Kim Kardashian marriage crisis
Kanye West kicked off another Twitter rant that turned plenty of heads.
KANYE WEST said he’s the “new moses” and demanded an apology from Drake in a wild new Twitter rant as his marriage to Kim Kardashian remains in crisis.
The controversial star took to the social media platform to sound off in another head-turning rant.
He wrote: “I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony. I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved.
“I’m putting my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships.
“I’m the new Moses.”
The baffling tweet came after Kanye took a shot at fellow rappers Drake and J Cole, saying: “I need a publicly apology from J. Cole and Drake to start with immediately … I’m Nat Turner … I’m fighting for us.”
Kanye and Drake have been taking shots at each other lately as some believe the Degrassi alum’s track Laugh Now Cry Later features lyrics referencing Kanye’s Gap partnership and the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star.
As for J. Cole, it is believed his song False Prophets is a criticism of Kanye’s turn into radical conservatism.
The tweets continued as Kanye said: “I’m 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.”
Kanye also said ‘it’s go time’ after he shared a text message from an unknown receipt that mentioned his longtime rival Taylor Swift.
The sender also suggested Kanye could work with Universal on a joint label called “Yeezy Media/Universal.”
The star wasn’t done yet as he went on another tangent later in the day, which he kicked off with a jab to the CEO of Universal Music, Lucien Grainge.
Yeezy tweeted: “I’ll let you guys know how this goes… I was told to speak with Lucien Grange … I said I don’t speak with non billionaire employees… I need Arnaud De Puyfontaine to fly to meet me immediately.”
“Contracts in all industries need to be simplified now. Complicated contracts are how businesses, music companies and sports take advantage of talent.
“We will expose these contracts and make them transparent now support new talent, startups and amend all old contracts,” he wrote in another scathing message.
To further prove his point, he name dropped big names in the tech business that followed his model.
“The Y Combinator started companies like Dropbox and Airbnb. For the first time, it cleaned up contracts and made venture capital transparent.
“It empowered start ups with the tools to succeed and grow their businesses. It changed the Silicon Valley game.”
He continued: “I’m not industry bro … I don’t care… I’m in service to Christ … we need world healing … I miss my brothers… I refuse to argue with black men on labels we don’t own… even twitter.
“I have the utmost respect for all brothers … we need to link and respect each other… no more dissing each other on labels we don’t own.”
He added in another tweet: “Let’s stop killing each other … let’s show God that we are Gods people … my ego gets the best of me too… God doesn’t measure us by money in his kingdom … let’s love each other… I love my brothers and I miss my friends … real talk.”
The hitmaker’s latest rant comes amid a roller coaster last couple of months, which has mainly focused on his marital problems with wife, Kim.
Kanye also claimed in a tweet that he’s been trying to divorce the reality TV star for two years.
The pair, who share kids North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 15 months, have gone on numerous getaways to work on their relationship, including most recently taking a trip to Dominican Republic.
However, a source previously told The Sun exclusively that Kim, 39, is still concerned for her husband.
The insider said: “Kanye is very unwell and everyone’s very worried for him.
“He’s acting extremely paranoid and seems convinced Kim and Kris Jenner are ‘out to get him.’
“He’s told her that if the Kardashian family try and stage an intervention he’ll live stream it on Twitter and ‘show the world the truth.’”
While his marriage continues to take hits, Kanye is making changes as he recently built a white wall around the Los Angeles home he shares with Kim and their children.
