Kanye West has criticised many of his antics recently but his latest stunt nearly broke the internet. Apparently, the rapper is suing former best friend Jay-Z.
Kanye has recently come under fire for his public support of the controversial US president Donald Trump and”MAGA” supporters. Many have spoken out that the movement is full of bigots and racists.
Ye, however, has kept silent. It turns out that it may be because he is too busy with his lawsuit against Mr. “Jay-Z” Carter and his company Roc-A-Fella.
According to TimesLIVE, the rapper filed numerous lawsuits earlier this week and one of them was against the record company. He apparently claims that he was responsible for reigniting Jay-Z's career.
The other lawsuit is allegedly against EMI, the song publisher that has administered the rights to his songs since 2003.
As mentioned, Kanye has been trending on the streets for the wrong reasons. Briefly.co.za previously reported that he met with Donald Trump, and it was interesting to say the least. It’s no secret that Kanye has seem strong opinions about certain issues and tends to go on a rant from time to time, but he managed to shock everyone during a visit to the White House. Within minutes of meeting with the Trump, Kanye broke out into a full-on lecture about parallel universes, hydrogen planes and a whole lot more which left the entire world scratching its head. After his visit, Kanye’s mental health was called into question because the rant was truly bizarre, even for him. Trump has had his fair share of crazy rants, but even he looked a little uncomfortable during Kanye’s tirade.
It is believed that these lawsuits may be Kanye’s attempt to reclaim control of his music career.
