    Kanye West's Alleged HIV+ Transgender Ghostwriter Threatens to Expose Him

    WENN/Avalon

    Mykki Blanco, who claims to have written Yeezy’s part in Teyana Taylor’s song ‘Hurry’, is dropping an ultimatum to the ‘Follow God’ rapper after he reportedly skipped out on his payment.

    Nov 6, 2020
    AceShowbiz – One of Kanye West’s ghostwriters is allegedly ready to go for a public war with the rapper. Mykki Blanco, an HIV positive transgender, is threatening to expose the GOOD Music founder after an alleged financial dispute.
    While the Atlanta-born star has admitted to using ghostwriters in the past, a ghostwriter should remain a secret, hence the term “ghostwriter.” However, according to MTO News, Mykki has launched an ultimatum that he’s going to come forward and tell the world that she’s been writing Kanye’s music because he skipped out on one of his payments.

    Back in July, Mykki made a claim that she wrote Ye’s rap part in Teyana Taylor’s song “Hurry”. The songwriter, who is also a rapper, performance artist, poet and activist for HIV and LGBT issues, tweeted at the time, “I wrote on and co-produced this track as well as writing the verse that Kanye literally raps on ‘Hurry’.”

    “Is that a big accomplishment to write for other artists no,” she added, expressing her displease. Noting that she meant no disrespect to Teyana, the ghostwriter claimed, “The reason I have gone public with this is not to bad mouth @teyanataylor.”
    Kanye’s past ghostwriters included some hip-hop stars who have placed their own names in the music industry, including Drake, Travis Scott (II), Lupe Fiasco and Jay-Z.
    Should the ghostwriter’s allegation be true, it’s another problem that Kanye will be dealing with after he’s sued by workers at his live opera show who allege he didn’t pay their wages. The 43-year-old rapper is accused of owing staff “unpaid wages” and of “failing to pay minimum wage and overtime,” with a lawsuit demanding $1 million in compensation.
    The suit states that the “Gold Digger” hitmaker “failed to properly compensate” dozens of employees, including a number of performers from his show. “Defendants oversaw, controlled and ran the production, and the aggrieved employees worked many hours on the production and were not timely paid for their work, or paid at all,” the documents read.

    Kanye West Unveils 'Nah Nah Nah' Remix Ft. DaBaby and 2 Chainz

    WENN/Instagram/WENN/Instar

    The remix, which was first teased by the ‘Follow God’ rapper last week, marks Ye’s first collaboration with the ‘Rockstar’ hitmaker who has announced that he’s voting for West in the presidential election.

    Oct 30, 2020
    AceShowbiz – DaBaby has sealed his endorsement of Kanye West with an appearance on the latter’s song “Nah Nah Nah”. The original song was released on October 16 as part of his planned album “Donda: With Child”, and he announced two days later that DaBaby did a remix version of it.
    “DABABY TURNED THIS VERSE AROUND SO QUICK ITS INSPIRATIONAL TO SEE HOW FAST WE CAN MOVE AS A PEOPLE,” Ye gushed on Twitter about his collaborator last week. He included a 16-second snippet of DaBaby’s verse in the post, writing, “I HAD TO GIVE YALL AT LEAST A SNIPPET.”
    In the original song, Kanye raps about his presidential run, his contract dispute with Universal Music Group, and his appearance on Nick Cannon’s podcast. Meanwhile, in the remix which also features 2 Chainz, DaBaby expresses his hope to make it big like the Yeezy designer as spitting, “Tryna make some shoes with Yeezy and Billion Dollar Baby clothing.”
    DaBaby isn’t only keen on working with Kanye musically, but he has also shown his support for the “Gold Digger” rapper’s political ambition. Back in August, the “Rockstar” hitmaker announced that he’s voting for Ye in the upcoming presidential election. “Ima let y’all finish…. But you got me f**ked up you think I ain’t voting for Ye,” he tweeted while paying homage to Kanye’s infamous 2009 VMAs moment.

    Kanye was recently reported to have spent $3 million on his presidential run. Reports stated earlier this month that he’s polling at 2 percent nationally, as he was deemed ineligible to get his name in the ballots in a number of states.
    His White House run aside, Kanye recently hinted at the launch of his own Yeezy Christian Academy. The 43-year-old star tweeted on Wednesday, October 28 a video appearing to promote the institution.
    It featured his daughter North and son Saint, his two elder children with wife Kim Kardashian, as well as their cousins, Kourtney Kardashian’s kids Mason and Penelope Disick, wearing blue T-shirts and pants, with the school’s initials, “YCA,” branded across the chest, as they gathered in a classroom, and run around outdoors.
    “Dear Future, I still believe in you. We still believe in you. We believe in our families,” they chanted in the clip. “In our future, we will heal. Our future has homes for everyone. Our future has food for everyone. Our future has love. Jesus loves everyone. Let’s lead with love! Our future is waiting on us!”

  • Kanye West Refuses to Release Nicki Minaj Collab 'New Body' Because It's 'Generic S**t'

    Ty Dolla $ign, who is also involved in the joint project, makes the revelation in his new song ‘Status’ that finds him rapping, ‘He said, ‘Dolla, you too good to put your voice on that generic s**t.’ ‘

    Oct 24, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Sorry, Nicki Minaj fans! It looks like her collaboration with Kanye West, “New Body”, will never see the lights of the day. Ty Dolla $ign, who was also involved in the project, claimed in his new song “Status” that the rapper and fashion mogul refused to release the collaborative song since he was not satisfied with the final product.
    Released on Friday, October 23, the song found Ty rapping, “I told Ye to drop the OG ‘New Body’ (Body)/ I told Ye to run for president (President)/ He said, ‘Dolla, you too good to put your voice on that generic s**t.’ ”

    Nicki fans are understandably disappointed by this, considering that the song is something that they have been expecting for so long. Some even decided to attack Kanye, with one saying, “kanye calling ‘new body’ trash when he hasn’t put out a good song since like 2016 is so funny to me.” Meanwhile, another wrote, “So he wasted Nicki’s time even writing the damn verse just for him to now say it’s ‘generic’ ????? She doesn’t needs to collab with ever again.”
    “New Body” was first announced in October 2018, when Kanye revealed in an interview that he had a song about body shaming with Nicki and Ty. The recording of Nicki’s verse was previewed in an episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” before the full version leaked online in July 2019. Kanye additionally previewed the song at multiple listening parties for his album “Jesus Is King”, but the song was eventually scrapped from the effort due to Kanye and Nicki’s creative differences.
    Earlier this year, Kanye included “New Body” in his upcoming tenth album “Donda: With Child” though it’s unknown when the “Famous” rapper will unveil the project. Additionally, he appears to have removed Nicki’s verse from the new version.

Been inspired. Still inspired! Since graduation,” a nod to Kanye’s 2007 album.
    Kanye originally shared “Nah Nah Nah” as a “theme song” for a viral clip, before making the full version of the song available on all streaming platforms last week. Produced by himself and Dem Jointz, the song finds Kanye touching on a number of subjects, including his presidential run and his complaints about the news media. He also raps about his recent issues with how his record label has been handling his masters.

    “If I put myself in harm’s way to get my own masters/ They’ll put theyself in harm’s way to stay the master,” he spits his bars. “They’ll put theyself in harm’s way ’cause they ain’t askin’/ They’ll put theyself in harm’s way, the slaves are massive.”

  • Kanye West Celebrating His Wins at Billboard Music Awards Weeks After Urinating on His Grammy

    Twitter

    The ‘Jesus Is King’ rapper thanks God, fans, and his Christian friends as he is celebrating his multiple wins at the BBMAs, only weeks after he denounced Grammy Awards.

    Oct 19, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Kanye West celebrated his Billboard Music Awards success with a video on his Instagram page.
    The rapper, 43, thanked “God, fans and all of my Christians” after scooping four gongs at the awards show on Wednesday (14Oct20), including Top Gospel Artist, Top Christian Artist, Top Christian Album and Top Gospel Album.
    Speaking while seated in an SUV, Kanye, who was unable to attend the awards show as he continues his U.S. presidential campaign, declared, “I wanted to just thank God for my nine Billboard nominations, it’s the most of the night… the four wins.”
    “Thank the Billboard Awards, thank all of my fans, thank all of my Christians that’s been praying for me, praying for the day when I would serve the Kingdom,” he added. “You know, God just keeps showing up. The incredible increase and the favour.”

    Kanye captioned the video, “Thank God for the favor the increase and these YEEZY SLIIIIIIIDZZZZ… Thank Billboard awards for the 9 nominations and 4 wins. Invite me next time and I’ll pull up.”

    It will no doubt come as a relief to Billboard bosses that Kanye was happy with his awards haul, weeks after Kanye shared a clip of himself urinating on his Grammy Awards, after publishing screenshots of his contract with Def Jam Music Group, which is a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.
    The rapper is fighting for the opportunity to buy back his masters from bosses at the company.
    Despite Kanye claiming to get the most awards, Post Malone was actually the one leading the winners. The “Congratulations” hitmaker collected nine nods out of 16 nominations this year.

  • LL Cool J Tells Kanye West to Urinate His Yeezy Instead of Grammy Trophy

    WENN/Instar/Ivan Nikolov

    In a new interview, the former Grammys host admits he doesn’t understand the ‘constant disrespect’ towards the recording academy, saying, ‘What the f**k is he doing?’
    Oct 3, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Remember the one time when Kanye West made the Internet baffled by urinating his Grammy trophy? LL Cool J let it be known during his recent appearance on “Desus & Mero” that he is not here for his fellow hip-hop star’s action, telling him to urinate his Yeezy stuff instead of the trophy.
    “With all due respect, I think Kanye should just–maybe he should just piss in a Yeezy or something instead of pissing on a Grammy,” he said in the episode. “Piss in a pair of one them Yeezys, B. I felt some kind of way about that shit. I didn’t love that shit, because I’ve been with the Grammys for five years.”

    Even though LL Cool J, who has hosted the annual show several times in the past, admitted that the recording academy is not entirely innocent, they also didn’t deserve the “constant disrespect” from Kanye. “Look, now don’t get me wrong, there have been some foul things that have happened to some artists around the Grammys; they are not without flaw,” he pointed. “But piss on one those f**king space shoes or something … C’mon, man. What the f**k is he doing?”
    Last month, Kanye created headlines by posting a video of him urinating one of 21 Grammy trophies that he put in a toilet bowl. His action was a part of his effort to get back his own master recordings and help other artists suffering from similar situations.
    “When you sign a music deal you sign away your rights. Without the masters you can’t do anything with your own music. Someone else controls where it’s played and when it’s played. Artists have nothing accept the fame, touring and merch,” he said at the time, adding, “The artist deserve to own our masters…artist are starving without tours…Ima go get our masters…for all artist…pray for me.”

  • Jay-Z Called a 'Snake' Amid Kanye West's Dispute With Record Label

    WENN

    After the ‘Follow God’ rapper shows his contracts with Universal Music, social media users come to the conclusion that Jay sold the masters to Kanye’s albums so he could get his own back.
    Sep 18, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Jay-Z has been dragged by social media users amid Kanye West’s dispute with record label. Earlier this week, the Atlanta rapper shared screenshots of dozens of pages of his contracts with Universal Music Group as he expressed his frustration about not being able to own the rights to his music.
    Apparently after making a close inspection of the binding contracts, a Twitter user came to the conclusion that Jay sold the masters to Kanye’s albums so he could get his own back. “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,” the said user wrote, noting, “That’s BEEF!”

    Learning of the Roc Nation founder’s sly move to get what he wanted, others have since dubbed him the bad guy in Kanye’s ongoing issue with Universal. “that’s some grimy s**t dude,” one reacted to Jay’s alleged involvement in Kanye’s contracts with the record label.
    “What a snake!” a second person called out the husband of Beyonce Knowles. Another added, “Like I have been saying Jay Z was NEVER Kanye’s real friend. This goes beyond Kanye marrying Kim, Jay is a f**king snake. I understand why he did it but it’s still foul no matter how much I don’t like Kanye.”
    “Who is surprised? This is Jay-z’s well known nature,” a fourth commenter claimed. “He’s a snake and always has been. Some people like snakes. I remember Diana Ross being okay with a snake until she found out that he took her money too.”
    Someone else blasted the “Empire State of Mind” hitmaker, “JayZ is so immoral. Devil in the flesh.” Another similar comment read, “Kanye is unhinged but Jay Z is straight up grimey snake.”
    Another acknowledged that “that’s some cutthroat s**t right there but that’s the music business.” Defending Jay for making such decision, someone else wrote, “I mean…if you have to make a choice between owning your masters and owning someone else’s…”
    Kanye shared copies of his contracts with Universal on Wednesday, September 16 along with a series of Twitter rants. In one of his controversial posts, he shared a video of him seemingly urinating on his Grammy trophy. He also blasted “white media” for taking down Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby and R. Kelly.
    Apparently noticing Kanye’s mention of the disgraced singer, R. Kelly’s lawyer Douglas Anton later reached out to the “Follow God” rapper and offered his help to solve his dispute with Universal. “Kanye. I’m R. Kelly’s lawyer. (For real) Please email all your contracts to me to [email protected] I’ll take a look at all of them. I can’t get them here off Twitter,” the lawyer tweeted, before Ye was temporarily banned from the blue bird app.

  • Kanye West Peeing on His Grammy After Ranting About Record Label

    WENN

    The ‘College Dropout’ star has shared a video that appears to show him urinate on one of his Golden Gramophones after saying he’s done with ‘Sony and Universal.’
    Sep 17, 2020
    AceShowbiz – Kanye West has made it clear he’s deadly serious about freezing his business relationships with bosses at Sony and Universal by appearing to pee on one of his 21 Grammy Awards.
    The “Stronger’ rapper is desperately trying to buy back his masters from company executives so he can officially own his recordings, and he has pledged not to release any new music until he’s released from his record label contract.
    After posting dozens of pages of one of his contracts to show how binding they are on Tuesday (15Sep20), the rap star uploaded a video of himself seemingly urinating on one of his Grammy statues.

    It’s the latest in a run of bizarre actions, which began in early July (20), when Kanye announced he would be running for election as U.S. President in November.
    He also revealed at a political rally that he and his wife Kim Kardashian had considered aborting their firstborn daughter North, and then attacked Kim and her mother Kris in a Twitter rant.
    Kardashian has since explained her husband’s comments came during a bipolar episode.
    Earlier this week (14Sep20), West returned to Twitter and stated, “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. I’m not industry bro… I don’t care… I’m in service to Christ… we need world healing… I miss my brothers… I refuse to argue with black men on labels we don’t own… even twitter.”
    “I have the utmost respect for all brothers… we need to link and respect each other… no more dissing each other on labels we don’t own. Let’s stop killing each other… let’s show God that we are Gods people… my ego gets the best of me too… God doesn’t measure us by money in his kingdom… let’s love each other (sic).”
    Kanye then tweeted, “I’m the 2nd richest black man in America… I need all my people with me for us to get free,” but decided to delete that post as he added, “I deleted that tweet about riches… the wealth is in our love of family and our brothers and our service to God… let’s rise up… let’s communicate.”
