Kanye West has been very active on Twitter as of late, ranting about everything from his massive personal debt and how he needs Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to help him out to how white media need to stop commenting on black music.
The latter was part of West's most recent tweets, when he named three longstanding publications — Rolling Stone, Pitchfork and The New York Times — and took aim at "white publications" in general.
To Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times, and any other white publication. Please do not comment on black music anymore.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
Realizing that this post could be controversial, West followed up with another tweet clarifying that he loves "white people," but that they just do not understand.
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.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
He added that the system is designed to make people of color fail.
The system is designed for colored people to fail and one of our only voices is music. One of our only ways out is music.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
West wasn't done there; he turned his attention away from the white media to comment on how his new album, The Life of Pablo, will never go on sale at Apple and how it may become a Tidal exclusive.
My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale... You can only get it on Tidal.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
He tweeted again, urging fans to sign up to Tidal.
Please to all my friends fans and music lovers. Sign up to Tidal now.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
