Kanye West fighting for his masters, adviser claims his catalog is worth more than Taylor Swift's

Kanye West is demanding his record company, Universal Music Group, and his publisher, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, hand over the masters to his music or else he won't record new music again.

Kanye Tweeted texts between him and his adviser. 

“We can argue that Universal and Sony have not supported you fully,” the text reads. “And that as a result they have breached [the contracts]. This is the lawsuit/ termination nuclear option.

“If we went that route we would litigate and ask for your masters as part of a settlement. This is high risk but high reward strategy,” the message continues. “Re masters ownership we can look into buying. But if Taylor’s cost $300 million yours would cost a lot more I assume. Remember that if you re-recorded these songs you could own these new masters outright.”

“A much more radical consideration would be to propose an entirely new relationship or joint venture with Universal. One that is equal and not one sided. I am not sure you are interested in that. But if could be a Yeezy Media/Universal joint venture play but one where you have the power.”

I don't see Kanye getting his way with this one :deserves_kim_kardashian_smirk_pink:

And why is he so obsessed with Taylor :peasants_taylor_swift_walking_away_bye_goodbye:

Thoughts, Exhale?

I don't like Taylor Swift AT ALL but he really needs to get over his obsession with her. She's ten times more successful than him and he needs to accept that:katyfrog_perry_upset_um:

Say what you want about Kanye but he is an artist and artists are not always fully understood because he thinks out loud via his art forms and can be hard to keep control over that process while not being an artist. 
taylor has most def always pissed him off as she is a puppet in the sense that she enjoys to be whatever is needed of her at the time. 
Point A: Taylor wanted to be Britney so she created the silent pop star just like Britney during those years 

B: flips to politics when the world stops caring about rich white girls and who they are dating.... 

C: gets huge accolades and respect however nothing of her music has ever pushed any boundries or said anything new ... just markets things that amass to audiences whereas Kanye releases things and you go “**** that’s weird but I love it” 

Taylor Swift is the equivalent to white proveldge in the music industry. Everything hard for her is 10,000x harder for a black artist which PISSES HIM OFF and honestly rightfully so. Best songwriter of my lifetime my ***

I don't understand why yall are hating on him for bringing up Taylor when it is clearly Universal who brought up Taylor... He is just showing how they never responded to his message about not wanting to work with them.

There's delusional and then there's kanlusional.

 

Outside a few songs

 

And that one Album Dark and twisted fantasy. Who's feeding him these lies. 

 

I know his wife plays a part in just adding the ego boost. 

I'm the hunter, you're the fox 🦊.

I don't care about Kanye or Taylor, but I think all of the artists should be able to buy their masters

I want to show you the different sides of Britney Spears. I am a performer. I am a Mom. I am funny. I am your friend! I am Britney Jean

Wait wait wait. Now he tries trying to make Taylors masters about him?! 

This doesn't even read as an actual legal email, it reads like he emailed himself to try and create a nonstory that somehow, involves Taylor.

 

I mean Taylor's music breaks records  how should his be worth more?

Taylor’s first two albums outsell all of Kanye’s music.

His obsession with her is really unhealthy, and what his handlers are advising him is adding fuel to the dumpster fire that is Kanye.
