After requesting public apologies from Drake and J. Cole in a Twitter tirade on Monday (September 14), Kanye has now added both men into a proposed meeting with yet another name to the list, Kendrick Lamar.
“We need Me J Cole Drake Kendrick all in a room 2gthr … it’s time to get free,” he wrote. “We will not argue amongst each other while somebody we don’t know in Europe is getting paid and putting that money in a hedge fund.”
Hours later he elaborated, emphasizing his earlier points about the importance of owning your own masters for an artist. He also showed he was serious about the meeting.
“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,” he wrote. I got J Cole number waiting for Kendrick and Drake.”
Another update revealed he’d gotten one step closer to Kendrick as he doubled down on his now-infamous quote from his May 2018 TMZ visit.
“Che Pope got Dave Free’s number … will have Kendrick’s numbed shortly,” Kanye confirmed. “I’ll keep you guys updated. Remember they cut our tongues when we were on the boat … but noooooow…. slaaaaaavery iiiiiiiiis aaaaaaaaa chooooooooice.”
In a series of tweets that followed, Ye asked for protection as he fights for every artist’s masters and asked for more peace in music. Check out more of his tweets below.
