Kanye West: where’s that “Donda” album? It was supposed to come out weeks ago. Now, it’s not. Kanye says he’s not releasing any more music until his record contracts are up. His main one is with Def Jam. He has one with Sony’s EMI Publishing too.
A year ago this week he settled a lawsuit with them, as well as
Universal Music Group, Roc-A-Fella and Def Jam. The entrepreneur rapper was seeking a way out of the contract he’d signed with EMI back when he was working on his 2004 debut, “The College Dropout,” citing a California labor statute that limits personal service contracts to seven years.
West’s records haven’t been big sellers recently, anyway. And now this gives him an excuse. Of course, this could all change by tomorrow or even in an hour.
He does bait both companies to “come and get him” which sounds like he owes them records and has a lot of their money in advances. This could get interesting.
“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”
