In case you haven’t been following Kanye West on Twitter over the past several days, he has found a new mission. He is pushing for recording artists to have the right to own the master recordings of the music they produce.

Other than a select few like Jay-Z, U2, Rihanna, and Metallica, most musicians and singers’ music is actually owned by the label they are signed with and have little to no chance of ever owning their music, so it’s actually a decent thing Kanye is trying to do.

Kanye West is one of those recording artists that does not own the music he has produced over the years and now he says he will not be releasing any more new songs until he is officially out of his contract with Sony/ATV and Universal.

West also said he wants to see the contracts of other artists and referred to himself as the “new Moses.”

“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 tweeted on Monday.

Kanye was back at it Tuesday night, posting an unending series of tweets that ran well into Wednesday morning, claiming, among many things, that both Prince and Michael Jackson were killed because they had ownership of their master recordings.

Not sure what God has to do with all of this, but Ye’s on a roll.

I’m with him on no more woke tweets.

Oh, man, now the record labels have gone too far.

But… in all fairness, you signed a contract, and got paid, and in Kanye’s case got paid a lot.

That’s a funny clip.

It wasn’t his final tweet of the day.

Seven hours later Kanye was back.

Right. That was in the contract, that you signed, voluntarily.

Is that true? Is Kanye uncancellable?

Pretty sure he just crossed a point right there.

Uh oh. Here comes the ALL CAPS tweets.

Again, not sure God is all that worried about how the music industry is run, but Kanye truly believes he’s got his ear.
