In addition, he claimed that Universal Music Group would not tell him how much his masters cost.
“Everyone please cover me in prayer …” he continued. “I’m one of the most famous people on the planet and the universal does not tell me what my masters cost because they know I can offer them … black masters.”
Referring to the four children he shares with Kim Kardashian, West then tweeted, “MY CHILDREN WANT TO OWN MY MASTERS … NOT YOUR CHILDREN … MY CHILDREN … MY CHILDREN … MY CHILDREN.”
The “stronger” star promised to do “everything” in his “legal power”
“OK KYLLE CHECK THIS … I do not have a contract with the universal … I have ten,” he wrote. “THEY ARE TRYING TO DIG [sic] OS ALIVE. ”
He then tweeted what he claimed were the pages of these contracts and wrote that he needed “every lawyer in the world to look at these.” He wrote that it is like, “The Kanye West Agreement looks like today,” and that “I ASK IN JESUS ’NAME THAT IT DOESN’T LIKE IT TOMORROW.”
“THIS MOMENT WILL CHANGE THE MUSIC INDUSTRY FOR THE GOOD … I feel so humbled and blessed that God has put me in a strong enough position to do this …”, he also tweeted. “EVERYONE BECOMES PRAYER … IT WORKS … I AM ON MY KNEE TOMORROW.”
In addition, he encouraged other artists – including Drake and Taylor Swift, with whom he has had a long feud – to show their support. West also wrote in a recently deleted tweet Monday that he “will not post any more music until I finish my contract with Sony and Universal.” E! News has reached out to Universal and Sony for comment, but has not heard anything back.
