A busy day for Universal Music's legal department yesterday, as Kanye West tweeted a bunch of his contracts with the major label, page by page, as part of a sudden campaign seemingly hoping to buy back his masters.
And it really was page by page, after an initial, unfortunate attempt to post PDFs (not a feature that Twitter supports).
"In the streaming world master ownership is everything... that is the bulk of the income ... in COVID artist need our masters ... it’s more important than ever before," was one of his early salvos, before a period of all-caps blasts ("UNIVERSAL WONT TELL ME WHAT MY MASTERS COST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN AFFORD TO BUY THEM" and "MY CHILDREN WILL OWN MY MASTERS ... NOT YOUR CHILDREN ... MY CHILDREN ... MY CHILDREN ... MY CHILDREN"), then the contracts with an exhortation for "every lawyer in the world to look at these".
