Kanye West unleashed his latest Twitter rant on music's biggest night.
The rapper asked 'Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times' to 'not comment on black music anymore,' called Puff Daddy 'the most important cultural figure in my life,' said 'don't understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves' and also noted that the 'system is designed for colored people to fail and one of our only voices is music.'
He also revealed that his album will never go on sale and will only ever be available on Tidal, the digital music service which is subscription based and owned by his friend Jay Z and other music artists.'My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale... You can only get it on Tidal,' wrote Kanye on Twitter. 'Please to all my friends fans and music lovers. Sign up to Tidal now.' He then ended his series of tweets by writing; 'Also all Good Fridays songs will be on Tidal. Me and Kendrick got 40 songs and me and Young Thug got 40 songs. 40/40 club!!!' Good Fridays is a free music giveaway Kanye launched while promoting his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. It relaunched in January of this year to promote his new album and will now continue it seems on Tidal. It is unclear what Kanye's anger towards Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times stems from, though it could be a result of their reception of his new album. It is a bit surprising considering Pitchfork gave his album a very good 9/10 rating, Rolling Stone has given the work extensive coverage and the Times wrote in their review; 'Now his rapping is sparser, more pointed, less imagistic and more emotional. And when he truly needs to be heard, he can corral a dream team of collaborators. He’s so fluent that he can use others to speak for him, and be understood clear as day.' Kanye had written earlier on Monday; 'Pitchfork, the album is a 30 out of 10.' Kanye's rant came on the same night as the Grammys, where he is nominated for four awards including one for Best Album for his work producing the Weeknd's Beauty Behind the Madness. Maybe he does have issues
