Big Hollywood has turned entertainment into powerful Community Organizing personalities pushing a far-left and radical political ideology for the past 10 years or more, but before that there were hints of the controlling nature of the industry, where agents and industry leaders got rich off artists who felt mistreated, especially in the music industry.
SO it isn’t surprising that Kayne West would videotape himself urinating on the music industry holy grail, a Grammy Award, which got about 25 Million views in a few hours.
Kanye West, who goes by the nickname “ye” has slowly been working up to what appears to be an expose of the deepest secrets and injustices of the music industry with his latest tweets this week.
“90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the “distribution fees” many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying,” West wrote in a tweet.
Project Veritas, well known for high profile undercover reporting of corrupt government and politics people, picked up the tweet quickly and responded with an offer to take his expose further, by wearing undercover cameras.
“Ye, If you really want to put the labels on blast, you and your friends should wear undercover cameras to your meetings… We got you covered: [email protected] #BeBrave,” James O’Keefe wrote on his Project Veritas account.
Numerous Twitter users posted hateful jabs and mockery of West, mainly because he supports President Donald J. Trump, however, he is not without support for his idea.
A supporter wrote,”Royalty year limits should be in place. This is ridiculous. The government should step in to fix any wrongdoing by predatory aristocrats who seek royalties past a decade of when the art was first produced.”
West has close to 31 million Twitter followers and is a very popular music artist, who has faced numerous controversies over the years because of his music, his wife Kim Kardashian, and his strong support of Trump.
West has entered politics himself, seeking candidacy for President of the United States, as an independent.
West Posted close to 100 Tweets in an hour with what appears to be legal contracts that outline what appears to be the unfair distribution legal claims, going back as far as 2005 and 2011, and show discussion of what appears to be burdensome expectations on the artist, while the music companies make a lot of money off of his work.
One Poster wrote, “Kanye contracts SUMMARY: Apart from the inducement which Kanye had to sign to get his advances. This shows that Jay Z sold the masters to first 6 @kanyewest ’s albums just so he could get his own back. He did so knowing Def Jam won’t sell them back to Kanye in future. That’s BEEF!”
“He owns album 7-10 but the most lucrative and most critically acclaimed albums are owned by Roc-A-Fella which is wholly owned by Def Jam… The majors will never sell you your masters because that’s what gives them market share and drives profits and Jay Z knew that,”A Poster called “The Authority” wrote.
The poster, who seems to be an industry insider finished with:
“the contract has the Grammy award-winning debut album quoted on it. By the time Jay sold the remain half of he let Def Jam have Kanye for 6 albums and offered Dame & Biggs a third of his masters and they refused so he gave them a third of Reasonable Doubt for Biggs sake…”
