Kanye West Tweets During Grammys, Will Never Put New Album for Sale

Kanye West went on a Twitter spree during the 2016 Grammy Awards and opened up about why he isn’t putting his new album The Life of Pablo out for sale.

The 38-year-old rapper originally dropped the new album late Saturday night (February 13) following his performance on Saturday Night Live this weekend. 12 hours later, the album was taken down and it is now only available to stream on Tidal.

“My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale… You can only get it on Tidal,” Kanye tweeted on Monday night during the Grammys. “Please to all my friends fans and music lovers. Sign up to Tidal now. Also all Good Fridays songs will be on Tidal. Me and Kendrick [Lamar] got 40 songs and me and Young Thug got 40 songs. 40/40 club!!!”

    I’m over these artist trying to get us to drink their Tidal Kool-aid. If Kanye and every other artist who has given Tidal exclusive rights to their music want to alienate, piss off and encourage their fans to pirate their music then go right ahead. I’ve never heard such absolute bull about a music artist refusing to sell their music. Then he wants to go on Twitter and seek sympathy for being 53 million dollars in debt. Yeah, well no s*** he is $53 million in debt when he makes such idiotic financial decisions.

    “I love love love white people but you don’t understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves and make it this far”

    music is a sound, it can’t have colour.

  • VanityInsecurity

    STFU already with this slavery BS, throughout time there has been many civilizations and all types of races that have gone through slavery & endured hardships. Not one of these races use this as an excuse or a clutch. Yes white people have endured slavery as well. You are a piss poor excuse for an artist, you don’t write you own music you haven’t had a hit in years.. you married a whore, you’re a narcissist who probably needs medication. No one gives a damn about you or your music or your debt!

  • Lenny

    6 million Jews weren’t put into slavery they were slaughtered and burned in ovens, 65 years ago, not over 200 years ago.

    How come they aren’t a bunch degenerates with a failing culture who use other peoples hate for them now and then hate so evil that lead to genocide of their people as excuse .

  • http://www.twitter.com/QVC_Hustler Bank Aaron

    Becaus Jews get/got reparations

  • Anna

    No you’re not. I do it all the time too, but it only slows them down. Not stops them. They’re like roaches. They multiply and scatter everywhere.

  • guest

    actually, this is a huge misconception. 6 million people over all died with about 2 million jewish deaths. this included homosexuals, gypsies, and other people from various beliefs and races. And to say all african americans are degenerates is a horrible thing to say. that is what you are heavily implying. have you no compassion or love in your heart to see what a hateful thing that is to say? you are simply proving he has a very valid point: AAs face huge hurtles in overcoming discrimination from people like yourself that are very hateful.

  • Casey C

    I’m genuinely believing he needs help now. He really sounds like he has an undiagnosed disorder or one he isn’t in treatment for. he puts out an album and because it isn’t universally loved he’s throwing a hissy fit. nhe needs help

  • plez

    He’s so bipolar. He does realize he married a white woman right? If a white mag can’t understand his albums how his is white wife going to understand him?

    If publications can’t understand than that means a good majority that buy this his ‘fashion” and music don’t either. Thus should not buy his stuff. Kanye you may need to beg for more money from billionaires.

    I wish some people would stop using slavery and racism everytime their ego is bruised. It really diminishes true pain and hardship.

  • Shay M

    Kanye gone mental y’all

    This loon should be shipped together with the Kartrashians to a far far away unknown planet and be banned from entering Earth ever again.

  • Kaitlyn

    Slavery was a horrible thing. But Let’s not forget that there hasn’t been an American slave owner for 150 years. So for someone to use the sins of 4 generations past as a reason for failure is to promote hatred in a world that has moved far past the problem.

    I’m not white, but I do recognize this trend of “white hate” and it’s sickening that the media is advertising it rather than calling out the racists spreading it.

  • dalovelee

    he’s not speaking.. he’s tweeting.

  • dalovelee

    are you trying to write revisionist history….so you actually believe that black people only experienced slavery from 1619-1865. Black only appeared in those dates. You do realize that African Americans are descendants from Africa, which is a continent which means our history of slavery just isn’t from your limited knowledge of dates in which Europeans were part of the slave trade industry.

  • smooshy

    if kanye is so freaking black power why’d he marry a white woman? I’m sick of this nonsense.

  • nylon

    This fool is crazy.

  • iLoveMe

    Blacks give themselves a hard time by alienating white people with the BS they spew. Half of these fools talking have careers because of some white man but they’ll never tell you that, same way the feminists won’t.

    These same fools talking about old slaves are the same ones not giving white people, who sympathized for them, the credit for freeing them. The morons talking about systems and ish are looking for excuses for why they suck at life. I wont sympathize for a black under the age of 50, who didn’t go through what the ones before them went thru to get them better opportunities in life. Kim’s husband had $53 million dollars that he wasted… I’m assuming the blame is on the system or the white man making sure he didn’t succeed, lol. The white man getting rich off of dumb rich blacks spending thousands to millions on Louis Voutins and foreign rides to show their superiority over other blacks and I’m suppose to care? Blacks need a serious reality check.

    It’s hard to sympathize for blacks at times because they chose to be brainwashed by the preachers or by famous, rich blacks, who want them to stay poor, while they stay rich. It is the black man who had them in chains to start with, so I guess they’ll always be slaves to their own.

  • iLoveMe

    He talks like most black women, I’ve had to endure over the years. He’s not crazy, just brainwashed by hate and racism.

    ” limited knowledge”, lol.

    In past 5000 years almost all countries had slavery. (Exceptions exists, very few.)

    it was an ordinary economical system. In Europe too!!! Not Only AFRICA!!!!!!!! Wow! For example, do you know what name “Slavic” came from? Guess it… Do you know what name Jew means?

    Almost all nations, all white, yellow, grey and purple people are slave descendants. The most of “Europeans” (aka “white” in uneducated USA) are GREAT GRANDSONS OF SLAVED PERSON.

    Free your mind. Go to the library, stop hate growing in your brain. Stop thinking Negroes are the most tragedian race and somebody should care who your great grand father was. We all have the same background. All people in the world you hate so much.

  • dalovelee

    So I’m supposed to dismiss my history because white people experienced slavery. Because white people experience slavery prior to blacks it’s supposed to be Oh well you Africans didn’t have it so bad. STFU..maybe 5000 further in the future blacks will be where whites are now. But my people are still feeling the aftermath of the effects of slavery, Jim Crow and racism that’s evident today. Privilege white people can’t stand to hear anyone black address racism against blacks because deep down you KNOW its there and deep down you KNOW you don’t discriminate because of black/brown skin color but to deflect it’s now We Were Slaves too…5000 years ago is different from 1865 and to present.

  • Qeero

    And yet he’s on twitter made by white people. A$$ face…

    Good luck running for US president. You just lose all your white voters.

    Babe, MY PEOPLE stopped being slaved ONLY 4 YEARS BEFORE USA in 1861 and then was trapped in new communistic slavery again and now living in totalitarian country with no future. TELL ME MORE HOW YOU SUFFER IN YOUR FIRST WORLD COUNTRY! I’M DYING TO HEAR HOW HARD YOUR LIFE! DON’T STOP! KEEP ON!!!

    I didn’t said nothing from your comment you impute to me. You would love to hear me saying these things that is easy to dismiss but I didn’t said them. Why it happened to you? You are concerned around nations and ethnicity you are used to relate only because you are concerned around yourself. Look wider, your eyes closed now. Educate yourself. Learn about world — it’s an interesting place to live, not to die with asphyxia from hate.

    Learn world history, learn sociology, anthropology, not tumblr blogs about about “white” people are born evil. Web and libraries can be useful.

    No he’s speaking too
