Kanye West pees on his Grammy award in a toilet in Twitter rant against record labels (VIDEO)

Kanye West has once again ignited fresh controversy after he shared a video of himself peeing on one of his Grammy awards.

In a flurry of tweets on Wednesday, the rapper winner called out US record label, Universal Music Group (UMG), while sharing screenshots of his contract with the company.


Amid the anger-laden tweets, West could be seen urinating on one of his Grammy awards in a toilet bowl in a clip accompanied with a terse post reading: “Trust me, l won’t stop.”

He also threatened more drastic actions in another of the tweets if UMG does not address the issues raised by him in the coming days.

“I wonder if Universal gonna call me … I promise I have more ideas … I will not stop I promise you on God,” he wrote.

West further called on other fellow music heavyweights, including Taylor Swift, who also publicly called out Big Machine Records for selling her masters to Scooter Braun last year, in pursuing his course.

“Bono can I get a retweet Love you Paul can I get a retweet love you Drake Kendrick even Taylor. We need you right noooooow,” the rapper added.

Kanye's tweets had come amid complaints about musicians’ lack of rights in owning their master recordings.

“The artist deserve to own our masters … artist are starving without tours … Ima go get our masters … for all artist … pray for me,” he tweeted.

In another tweet, he wrote: "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."

The rapper had earlier announced that he won’t be releasing new music until UMG and Sony/ATV Music Publishing both release him from their contracts.

In another tweet, Kanye joked that his wife, Kim Kardashian, is his lawyer.

Kim last year revealed that she was starting a four-year law apprenticeship, however, the reality star has not yet commented on her husband’s latest antics.

Kanye had made a name for himself as a top record producer in the early 2000s before getting global fame with his critically acclaimed debut album ‘The College Dropout”.

He has won 21 Grammys for his efforts making one of the top Grammy award-winners of all time.
