Kanye West Disses Record Labels, ‘Thrashes’ Grammy Award In Latest Controversy

 Kanye West has shared a video of himself urinating on a Grammy Award as he ‘goes into battle’ against labels Universal and Sony on the issue of rights and music ownership.

The rapper, 43, shared the clip on Twitter which showed the object of many musicians’ aspirations getting placed in a toilet bowl.

‘Trust me… I WON’T STOP,’ West captioned the clip, which referred to his current bid to gain ownership of his masters – otherwise known as the copyright to his original songs.

During his time in the music industry, the outspoken rapper has won 21 trophies which makes him one of the top Grammy award-winners.

Kanye has been in a Twitter firestorm for several hours in which he spoke about music labels for having ownership of artists’ records. During the rant, he violated the micro-blogging site’s terms of use after he shared the personal contact details of a magazine editor he called ‘a white supremacist’.

‘If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist… this is the editor of Forbes,’ West wrote above the phone number of the publication’s editor Randall Lane.

West has repeatedly hit out at the magazine in the past for failing to label him as a ‘billionaire’. Twitter took 30 minutes to hide the tweet with Lane’s details, which has now been deleted.

In another tweet, the “Gold Digger” hitmaker joked that his wife, Kim Kardashian, is his lawyer.

Kardashian-West last year revealed that she was starting a four-year law apprenticeship, however, the reality star has not yet commented on her husband’s latest antics.

Kardashian is taking 24 hours off Facebook and Instagram to protest the spread of ‘hate, propaganda, and misinformation’ on social networks.
