Kanye West reacts to claims Jay Z allegedly sold Kanye

Kanye West has defended Jay Z after it was alleged that the latter sold Kanye’s Masters to get his own back.

Kanye, who had been temporarily banned from Twitter for sharing a journalist’s phone number on his timeline, returned to the platform today to react the claims Jay Z sold him out.

Kanye, 43, tweeted screenshots of a post by blogger Akademiks, featuring the headline, “Jay Z Allegedly Sold Kanye’s Masters to Get Own Masters Back.”

Reacting Kanye said Jay is his brother and the media shouldn’t come between them.

Kanye wrote: “Don’t let the system pit us against each other. JAY IS MY BROTHER … I have eternal love for all artist that have been through and are still trapped this crooked system. Jay still doesn’t get his own masters back for ten years. I will see to it that we all get our masters.”

He added: “we will change the paradigm.”

Kanye, who is battling Universal Music Group for ownership of his masters, posted his entire contract on Twitter earlier this week.

Several music industry executives who read through the contracts concluded that Jay Z sold Kanye’s first six albums in order to get his own masters back.

@lavidaNOTA, a South African label owner, wrote: “Kanye contracts SUMMARY: Apart from the inducement which Kanye had to sign to get his advances. This shows that Jay Z sold the masters to first 6 @kanyewest’s albums just so he could get his own back. He did so knowing Def Jam won’t sell them back to Kanye in future. That’s BEEF!

“[Kanye] owns album[s] 7-10 but the most lucrative and most critically acclaimed albums are owned by Roc-A-Fella which is wholly owned by Def Jam… The majors will never sell you your masters because that’s what gives them market share and drives profits and Jay Z knew that.”

However, Kanye’s recent tweet disputes this claim.

Real Estate, fashion and raising my kids distracted me from making music – AY.com

Published

on

AY.com rings a bell whenever the jam, Pass Me Your Love featuring Terry G comes on or is being talked about but after mesmerising the airwaves through heavy TV and radio rotation with the commercial hit released in 2008, AY.com vanished from our screen and for over 12 years, it seemed that way, either him remaining inactive musically or releasing music that gained little to no plays mainstream wise. However, AY.com is officially ready to make a comeback into the commercial mainstream music world and in his recent interview with Sidomex Entertainment on YouTube, he speaks on his absence, return and plans for 2021.

Speaking on his long hiatus from the music scene, AY.com cites venturing into other business interests including Real Estate and Fashion while also choosing to prioritize family over his music career by making his kids the main focus in his life, raising them up properly but now that they are all grown, he is back to doing what he loves and what makes his happy, i.e music.

Now signed to TNKay Music Worldwide, AY.com is making his grand comeback to the Nigerian mainstream space by releasing the re-fix to Pass Me Your Love (released over a decade ago) with Peruzzi.

In the Sidomex interview, AY.com also revealed he has a song with Praiz to which the music video has been shot, soon to hit our screen and streaming platforms soon.

On his public fallout with Pass Me Your Love original version collaborator, Terry G, AY.com cites false ego and pride as the major reason, saying Terry G was beginning to feel like “the bigger person” as if he were a god; acting like he was the force behind making the song very big as at then while infact it was both of them—AY.com and Terry G—who equally made the song blow up. Moving on, he (AY.com) says “music is spiritual” and if the “chemistry is not right”, he will not bother making music with anybody.

Published

on

R&B/Soul singer, Tay Iwar known for his silk, smooth and low tempo vibes puts out his sophomore project and debut EP, Love & Isolation.

Love & Isolation is nothing but a purebreed output of fine tune R&B melodies induced with soulful singing and lay-low productions through the key and strings with beats seldomly added for flavour.

Tay Iwar’s Love & Isolation is filled with 5 well-written and nicely sung chunes with features from veteran Alternative singer Asa (“Yoga”), emPawa signed artist and Kenyan songstress, Xenia Manasseh (“Stones”), fellow R&B/Soul singer Lou Val and EDM/Dance artiste Insightful (“Feel”). “Peaking”, a 90’s esque R&B song served as the promotional single for Love & Isolation EP.

Tay Iwar is closely associated with the Lagos-based Alté clan of musicians and mostly always linked with fellow Alté acts, Santi and Odunsi (The Engine). He released his debut album—“Gemini”—in 2019 but gained major mainstream recognition for being the guest act on “True Love” on Wizkid’s “Made In Lagos” 2020 released album.
