Kanye West once again took to Twitter to express some of his current thoughts and feelings and, in the process, explained why we haven't received a new album from the rapper in a while. West, who was supposed to drop his tenth studio album 'Donda: With Child' on July 24, 2020, never released the record even after revealing the release date and album cover. Obviously, Kanye's fans were left feeling disappointed.

Now, in a tweet sent out by Kanye, the rapper explained why there's been no new album from him. He wrote, "I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal ... On God ... in Jesus name ... come and get me." The rapper then went on to post a screenshot of the Google Search page of French mass media conglomerate Vivendi with the caption, "Vivendi family I’m in Calabassas... come holla at me." Vivendi owns a majority stake in the Universal Music Group, the record label which distributed Kanye's albums.



 

 



 

But the tweet that caught everyone's attention is the one in which West asked fellow rappers J Cole and Drake to apologize to him and wrote, "I need a publicly apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately ... I’m Nat Turner ... I’m fighting for us." He then addressed Jay-Z, West's former longtime friend, by his real name Shawn and tweeted, "My bad I meant Shawn ... no disrespect to my big bro."



 

 



 

West then started to talk about the music industry and the exploitation faced by artistes. Stressing the fact that Black men don't own any of these big record labels, Kanye wrote, "I’m not industry bro ... I don’t care... I’m in service to Christ ... we need world healing ... I miss my brothers... I refuse to argue with black men on labels we don’t own... even twitter." He then expanded on this point and said, "I have the utmost respect for all brothers ... we need to link and respect each other... no more dissing each other on labels we don’t own."



 

 



 

Next up, West brought up Travis Scott's recent McDonald's deal and African-American businessman Steve Stoute, the founder and CEO of marketing agency Translation. Kanye wrote, "I’m sure Steve Stoute was hurt that he didn’t do the McDonald’s deal ... Steve’s a good man Trav is a good man ... my brothers let’s rise up ... we don’t even own these companies." He then talked about how much he misses his brothers and friends and said, "Let’s stop killing each other ... let’s show God that we are Gods people ... my ego gets the best of me too... God doesn’t measure us by money in his kingdom ... let’s love each other... I love my brothers and I miss my friends ... real talk." 



 

 



 

Talking about a tweet that he deleted, West wrote, "I deleted that tweet about riches... the wealth is in our love of family and our brothers and our service to God ... let’s rise up... let’s communicate," while also saying that he wants to see "everybody's contract at Universal and Sony" and that he's the "new Moses". He wrote, "I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony. 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 then shared another screenshot of an Instagram handle named @balleralert. In the screenshot caption, basketball player Kevin Durant talks to Steve Stoute, the businessman West earlier named, about why people shouldn't vote for the 'Stronger' hitmaker. He simply captioned the tweet with a yawning emoji.



 

And, finally, talking about Stoute, West tweeted, "Steve Stoute is a good man ... this is my brother ... I’m disappointed with a lot of his recent decisions but Steve is my brother... I understand bro,and I’m here for life."
