Sensational singer and Empawa music boss, Mr Eazi has openly invited American rapper and presidential aspirant, Kanye West to join his label.
Kanye had taken to Twitter to rant about how record labels and publishing/distribution companies exploit talents in America in a series of cryptic tweets. According to him, there should be no more shady contracts, no more life long deals between artistes, and record labels. He further spoke about how artistes become slaves and are unable to access their music.
When I spoke to Katie Jacobs who is on the board of Vivendi we decided to create a “Y combinator” for the music industry so artist have the power and transparency to to be in control of our future … no more shady contracts … no more life long deals. Contracts in all industries need to be simplified now.
Complicated contracts are how businesses, music companies and sports take advantage of talent We will expose these contracts and make them transparent now support new talent, startups and amend all old contracts.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.
In response, Mr Eazi reached out to the rapper to join his team because they share the same thoughts. According to him, Africa is already leapfrogging in the music business. He wrote: “In Spot on Ye! In Africa we are already Leapfrogging! Come Join us at @emPawaAfrica we align in thought!”
