Kanye West Says He is ‘New Moses’ and Demands Drake ‘Apologize’
Kanye West announced on Twitter on Sept. 14 that he will not release any new music until he is finished with his contracts with Sony and Universal.
West also demanded to see everyone else’s contracts with the record companies, which he called “modern day slave ships.” He also declared himself to be the “new Moses.”
I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony— ye (@kanyewest) September 15, 2020
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
West also tweeted and then deleted some other bizarre tweets, notes the Daily Mail:
“I need a [public] apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately,” he then wrote in another tweet, adding, ‘”‘m Nat Turner … I’m fighting for us.“
West has feuded with both J. Cole and Drake in the past, while Nat Turner is an American slave who led a Virginia rebellion for freedom in 1831.
As the Twitter rant continued, West wrote: “I’m the 2nd richest black man in America,” followed by “I need all my people with me for us to get free,” however that tweet was later deleted.
