Kanye West was in quite a mood to express his array of feelings early in the morning on Wednesday, September 16, about how he still felt slavery was a choice and the giant wall he is constructing around his Los Angeles mansion, all presumably aimed at his ongoing Twitter feud with music label Universal and Sony. 

"Che Pope got Dave Free’s number ... will have Kendrick’s numbed shortly ... I’ll keep you guys updated Remember they cut our tongues when we were on the boat ... but noooooow.... slaaaaaavery iiiiiiiiis aaaaaaaaa chooooooooice" read one of his tweets read. This is a thought that the rapper has repeated in the past. Back in 2018, in an interview with TMZ, he created a huge controversy when he said, "When you hear about slavery for 400 years ... For 400 years? That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years and it's all of y'all. It's like we're mentally imprisoned." 


Needless to say, his words did not sit well this time around either. People quickly started commenting on how they thought the musician had lost his marbles yet again, after he started his campaign rally on July 19 at North Charleston's Exquis Event Center by claiming, "Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people."

"Medication is a choice too. Please take some," one user suggested, while another wrote, "A wrong statement slavery was not a choice, it could be now in that metaphorical way but in the literal sense, it was not ye u gotta put this 1 to rest." A third begged him to stop by saying, "That’s enough Mr. West, please, no more today." Another seemed concerned about his mental health. "Are you ok?" they asked him. One of the social media users remembered his "TMZ meltdown" tweeting, "I really can’t believe you brought this all the way back to ur tmz meltdown."










He also shared a short video of a wall that lined a renovated garden with planters and trees lined up to be put in the earth. The boundary was similar to the one placed around his Wyoming ranch, where the Grammy-winner stayed during recent marriage troubles with wife Kim Kardashian. The walls appeared to surround two separate buildings in the complex. 

"It's a good start," West said as he posted the video featuring a female friend. "This is fresh man! Grow your own foods, fruits…" the woman says. 


But West did not stop there. He also returned to his ongoing attempts to contact rappers who he believes should be supporting his quest for a new music contract. "In the streaming world master ownership is everything... that is the bulk of the income ... in COVID artist need our masters ... it’s more important than ever before I got J Cole number waiting for Kendrick and Drake" he wrote. He also went into a spiritual mode, writing in one post, "I need an army of angels to cover me while I pull this sword out of the stone ... I need everyone’s prayers ... I promise we will be free and own our masters but we must be faithful to God this time," adding in another, "No more killing each other No more threatening to take each other’s girls and wives ... let’s show the world how great we truly are  we are God’s chosen people"






He further said, "The artist deserve to own our masters ... artist are starving without tours ... Ima go get our masters ... for all artist ... pray for me" he said. Another tweet read: "When you sign a music deal you sign away your rights. Without the masters you can’t do anything with your own music. Someone else controls where it’s played and when it’s played. Artists have nothing accept the fame, touring and merch."

The tweets came after 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. He revealed on Twitter on Tuesday that he was "not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal."
