Kanye West‘s latest Twitter tirade might be his wildest yet. The rapper has been tweeting complaints about his contracts with Sony and Universal for a day or so, but he’s now advanced to tweeting out every page of said contracts. He also posted a video of what appears to be him urinating on one of his Grammy awards, as well as a screenshot of the contact information for one of the editors at Forbes and another screenshot of fellow producer Hit Boy’s response to West’s contractual complaints and concerns about getting the masters of his music.
We won’t include the video or the contact information, but we do suspect that the tweets are more likely than not to be deleted at some point in the near future. Twitter seems to have already required West to remove his post with the editor’s private information. It also appears Twitter has frozen the rapper’s account until the tweet is removed. West has not tweeted since. The contact seems to be Randall Lane, the chief content officer of Forbes Media and editor of the magazine. This isn’t the first time he’s taken issue with Forbes — after the publication declared him a billionaire, he immediately texted the outlet that he was actually worth more than a billion.
Twitter is requiring @kanyewest to remove a tweet sharing private info about @RandallLane (which Twitter has hidden from public view for now) to regain access to his account. Until then, he cannot tweet.— Oliver Darcy (@oliverdarcy) September 16, 2020
West also included an allusion to his wife, Kim Kardashian, with a screenshot of a black hoodie with text reading “Kim is my lawyer.” Oddly enough, he preceded his contract upload by requesting that any followers that were lawyers to take a look at the documents.
Here are my ten Universal contracts … I need every lawyer in the world to look at these— ye (@kanyewest) September 16, 2020

The rapper continues to post somewhat cryptic messages, including his latest of what looks to be a photo of his home with the text “ONLY MUSEUM QUALITY BOYS.” West soon followed up with another tweet about his grievances with recording contracts and labels.

90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the “distribution fees” many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying.— ye (@kanyewest) September 16, 2020
While we won’t post the impressive amount of pages from his contracts, the rest of West’s tweets are worth reading.
