Who are the Vivendi family? Kanye West asks company to 'come holla at him in Calabassas' in cryptic tweet
The renowned record producer, who has 30.9 million followers on Twitter, posted a screenshot of his Google search which read ‘Vivendi family’
Kanye West is not new to headlines whether it is for his outspoken political comments or slamming a public figure indirectly with his mysterious tweets. The rapper is back at it again using Twitter as his most favorite social media platform to talk his heart out.
In his most recent tweet, ‘The College Dropout’ hit-maker seems to be interested in a deal with the controversial Vivendi family. The 43-year-old hip-hop entrepreneur took to Twitter and posted a series of tweets where one of the tweets read as if he was interested in making a deal with the media conglomerate.
The renowned record producer, who has 30.9 million followers on Twitter, posted a screenshot of his Google search which read ‘Vivendi family’ and captioned the pic as, “Vivendi family I’m in Calabassas... come holla at me.”
Now, Kanye West is known for his cryptic tweets and he never explains them and this post was no different. Kanye simply mentioned this one-line caption along with the photo and that was it. He did not care to elaborate on it in his next series of tweets.
Vivendi is a French mass media conglomerate headquartered in Paris and is one of the biggest media houses known for activities in music, television, film, video games, book publishing, tickets and video hosting services. Vivendi has been in the news for quite some time for their controversial deal with Italian-based mass media company Mediaset.
Vivendi and Mediaset have been at odds since 2016 when the French conglomerate pulled out of an 800 million euro agreement to buy Mediaset’s loss-making pay-TV unit the dispute is still ongoing.
Looking at this situation it won’t be wrong to assume Kanye’s cryptic tweet is hinting at a deal with the media conglomerate, however, nothing has been confirmed yet. The moment Kanye West posted this tweet social media users stormed his post to express their opinions.
One said, “Kanye is really challenging a company that's literally founded by the nephew of Napoleon.” Another social media user posted, “Looked this up & went down a rabbit hole that ended with Napoleon.” One added, “Wow this dudes going to the head of the boards and shit. The dudes actually running this hell. You a real one even if they don’t see it.” One followers asserted, “I think he wants to work with them to release the music after the contract ends.”
