To me the Yellowstone thing just seems like more media alarmism. Sure, it has the potential, but the idea that it is “way overdue” doesn’t sound scientific at all.

Scientists are catastrophically wrong on so many estimates it is unbelievable. They just revise their numbers and take a mulligan on the years of hysteria they caused.

They seem to have a dozen Malthusian Traps going at any point in time.

tombombadil 2 points ago +2 / -0

I think it is a combination of scientists models being inaccurate + the media wanting stories that make a lot of money. Nothing gets people to pay attention more to the media than the feeling of fear. So they will publish garbage saying, "some experts worry that the Yellowstone Supervalcano is going to erupt any day now and the results will be apocalyptic." When it reality all they found was three scientists that are just as corrupt as them to say that, while every good scientist said something totally different.

Lol yeah you are right about that. Even if you believe in climate change the "threats" that we face essentially boil down to things like:

  • "watch out, it might rain a little bit more in the next 200 years!!"

  • "uh oh, some animals might migrate to places that they don't usually migrate to!!"

  • "oh no, you'll be able to grow valencia oranges in parts of Virginia in 500 years!!

And how record labels own artists like literal slaves. You wrote a cool new song, WE own it now. Came up with some lyrics while taking a shit, WE own it now. THEY own your image, your music, your creativity for almost your entire life.

27
FireannDireach 27 points ago +30 / -3

Here's the thing - and I have some direct experience with the music industry:

He was not forced at gunpoint to sign his record deal. Nobody is. They play games, sure, like trying to create a sense of false urgency to get you to not take too close a look at it, or even better, sign it without reading it. (I'm betting he paid a very expensive lawyer to review it for him) But it's voluntary. Always has been.

He just wants out of his contract. I get that. But selling voluntary contracts as slavery? Nah. Not buying that. This isn't the 50's when a handful of sleazy music labels ripped off ignorant, naive black artists. This is the modern day, and he signed his contracts in an era where legal review by someone you're paying to defend your interests is standard, at his level.

And, that's not how record contracts work. They own a specific performance of a song, they do not automatically get rights to the lyrics, the music, or your image, unless you agree to it in a contract. That's what 'publishing" is - getting paid as the owner of the song, and you're paid by publishing companies like ASCAP/BMI. Royalties is a cut of selling a specific recorded performance of it, and are paid by a record label. That's why an artist can own a song, and have two different versions on two different labels. Unless they agree to exclusivity in their contract.

And, someone owning your creativity is utter rubbish. Record contracts can end, be bought out, or sued out of. Kayne just wants his masters, which is not a bad thing, per se, and he's just using the public to get that done. He's copying Prince's 'symbol" protest, when he wanted out of a record contract he willingly signed. This isn't a protest, this is him manipulating his fans for business purposes.

9
tombombadil 9 points ago +9 / -0

Great insight. I think he has advocated for a simplification of contracts to not be 50 page documents that only lawyers can read. And from the lawyers I have spoken to, that is totally doable. If he can bring light to that then it’d be a win for everyone.

11
FireannDireach 11 points ago +11 / -0

That would be amazing, but I wouldn't hold my breath. I'm fully in favor instead of leaving the record label business model behind, the tools for artists to make, market and sell their music exists. The record label business model is beyond dated. It's not needed. And they'll fight tooth and nail to keep it going.

I don't like him wrapping this up in "muh slavery", but I understand his wanting his master recordings back.

I've read actual record contracts. They're...dense. One I read was a half inch thick, on legal sized paper. I watched a manager and lawyer proceed to cross off most of the clauses, over several hours, with comments like 'Fuck that, not happening, go fuck yourself." This was a contract submitted by a medium sized label to an up and coming act (not me). The money paid to the lawyer was worth every penny, for the things they were trying to slip in, like "if any member of the act quits, they agree to not sign with anyone else or perform in any way for 5 years." They double crossed that one out. They got about 3/4 of the way through it, and turned to their client and said "this is not a company you want to be in business with." They signed to a better label a month later, with very generous terms.

1
Hades440 1 point ago +1 / -0

It's an endless cycle. Contracts start out simple so anyone can read and understand them, but that simplicity leads to ambiguity, and ambiguity is used to take advantage of people, so then they make contracts more comprehensive to prevent any ambiguity but this means having very specific and intentional language and brevity cannot be afforded, but then they become too complex and people agree to things they don't understand, so then they make contracts simpler and the whole cycle starts again.

blurryface 3 points ago +3 / -0

Prince is dead too tho and for the same reasons.

I totally get where you're coming from and agree that personal responsibility needs to be the main focus, and that will be done through education. Everyone should know the basics of law.

But when you have one side with years of experience and hundreds of lawyers on retainer and the other side has a a dream and someone telling them everything they want to hear....

One side is obviously at an advantage.

And knowing what we know about politics and money. Its not that out of line to think the side with more power will bend the rules to their favor.

3
FireannDireach 3 points ago +3 / -0

Prince is dead because of an addiction to Fentanyl. He was actually where he wanted to be when he died - running his own label, controlling every aspect of his career. He won.

But yes, the music industry is predatory, and there are thousands of horror stories of labels ripping off musicians - and by lawyers, accountants, and managers. Starry eyed 20-years olds are easy to sway with dreams of wealth and fame. The smart ones hire a lawyer - and usually do. Most record contracts are completed satisfactorily and often renewed, but some aren't.

My point is, the things labels provided musicians in the past...aren't needed anymore. They're just private banks at this point. You want a hefty advance to fund your album/tour? Sign a deal - but you'll be paying it back for years. My point is you don't need a huge advance anymore. Or a big record label, since radio and MTV are dead, and you can get your stuff on iTunes and Spotify on your own.

I'll stop there, because I could write a book, but this isn't the time or place.

rooftoptendie 12 points ago +13 / -1

George Michael tried to go up against sony too, and now that he's dead, you will never hear another GM or Wham song on the musack or the sattelite radio or 80's hits stations ever again. People in their 20's now have no fucking idea what Wham was, even though they were as popular as depeche mode, the cure, culture club, madonna, and duran duran in the day. Because as soon as he came out against sony they blacklisted him permanently. They want everything he ever did to fade into obscurity until he is completely forgotten.

lifeisahologram 9 points ago +9 / -0

Exactly. It’s kind of crazy how unreliable they are though. I think part of us still want to believe there is some authority in the media. Doing so gives us control in a sense, believing that people know what they are talking about.

But the reality is most people don’t. Most “journalists” aren’t any more informed or capable than the random dude reading the paper.

7
rooftoptendie 7 points ago +9 / -2

it's because they are really good at what they do. Even i catch myself sometimes asking "why do I even have that opinion" and not really knowing why on some thing or other. And I realize I got had by the MSM somehow, even though after I got redpilled I did my best to weed out all the garbage in my head.

the biggest example of MSM brainwashing suggestion is sandy hook. People do NOT like hearing that that may not have been real. But when you ask them why it gets them so TRIGGERED, they can't articulate, they can't point to specifics, its just a feeling-only-reaction, and it is a strong one.

You would think that's something that one could reasonably debate with people and let the facts stand on their own, but more often than not, there is a visceral and strong reaction to discussing sandy hook. It's one of their finest examples of successful suggestion techniques.

DarkMemeDuck 4 points ago +4 / -0

I think the thing with Sandy Hook is no one wants to believe the media is evil enough to fake the deaths of kids.

Hell, I'm still on the fence about that one. I haven't done much research, and some of the videos I've seen can be chalked up to plausible coincidence.

DarkMemeDuck 4 points ago +4 / -0

He admitted to having them in his bedroom.

His bedroom was 2 stories tall and was closer to a studio apartment. Entire families would stay in there with him. His bed was upstairs and the guest sleeping area was downstairs.

This was according to Mackully Culkin and an interview I saw with a mom who had stayed there.

FergieJR 7 points ago +7 / -0

MJ had inappropriate relationships with kids but it wasn't touching. He just thought of himself as a kid because sadly he was abused and grew up in a shitty life style.

He had slumber parties and pillow fights and things a 40 year old man shouldn't do with kids. But many have came out in his defense, even ones that have came out and claimed others touched them on movie sets ect.

I wasn't there, this is my opinion, I still find MJ weird and I'm not a fan. I feel sorry for his childhood and I think people used his weirdness and richness as something to take advantage of.

3
THELEADERSOFMEN 3 points ago +3 / -0

I remember hearing rumors when I was middle school aged and Thriller came out, that he had been given hormones to stop puberty and keep his voice from changing. That would make him something akin to a man with Turner’s Syndrome, someone who never went through the psychological changes that puberty brings (my sil has Turner’s and is essentially a very smart high functioning adult child. She chose pediatric nursing as a career because she’s “still a kid at heart” and just relates so well to kids). So that would explain the arrested development if that were truly the case

1
Pedeville 1 point ago +1 / -0

He was a superstar since age 6, and we all know what happens with kids in hollywood. He probably got raped alot and became weird off of that, or the fact he had no childhood since he was a superstar made him weird. I dont think he's a pedo, I just think he's weird and I hate his music.

Back in the "studio" days of Hollywood, the studios definitely controlled the behavior of the actors and actresses they had under contract. Their public image was pretty much totally controlled by the studio down to the coverage the press was allowed to report. The studios could make you and break you. Why would today be any different? It would kind of make sense that some has-beens like Alyssa Milano are putting out the crazed social media posts in an attempt to curry favor with the studio heads.

5
deleted 5 points ago +5 / -0

FireannDireach 3 points ago +3 / -0

Studios don't sign those kinds of deals anymore, because they're rejected by actors and actresses agents and lawyers. Morality clauses are archaic, as well. They're not around because the system has completely changed from the 30s and 40's era Hollywood. All of that died off for good in the 60's.

The music industry dropped all inclusive contracts around the time of the Beatles.

2
ouvrez_les_yeux 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yes, I know that, but my conjecture that the studio heads still exert control over actors/musicians is supported by evidence such as openly conservative artists being blacklisted. It might not be a formalized system but the message is there that artists need to toe the leftist line or "you'll never eat lunch in this town again!"

This might also explain the behavior of some of the more deranged Hollywood types such as Alyssa Milano--a desperate attempt by a has-been to curry favor when the reality is she's just aged out of star roles.

FireannDireach 5 points ago +6 / -1

No, it's about money. He wants his master recordings, and his label won't sell them back to him. He's just being dramatic to bamboozle his fans into pressuring his label to sell.

See, here's how it works:

Masters owned by label - you get 10, 15% of sales.

You own the masters, you get ALL of the sales, less a small percentage for distribution. (making physical cds, etc.) With digital, the overhead is low - he stands to make millions on millions if he gets his masters. The old label can't sell those albums anymore, either - and any backlog of physical stock has to be dumped on the market, be part of the deal, or destroyed.

Lots of musicians have done it. Motley Crue bought their masters for $10 million, so now if you buy their albums, they get most of the cash. Smart move on their part, since labels aren't pushing that kind of music anymore.

Jaqen 19 points ago +19 / -0

Correct, there is hyperbole in calling a millionaire a slave.

I think his point is that for every millionaire, there are dozens of other talented people who are getting the shaft.

This is especially true in the music industry, where talent is regularly bought, used up and dropped like a bad habit. It is demoralizing and can land the talent upside down financially.

1badcop 10 points ago +10 / -0

Kanye talks about "mental slavery" - which is widely practiced by the left to this very day. Although at the human level, I don't see the millionaire circus clown caste as being more important than anybody else, I recognize the immense negative influence that it exerts on our culture. And so anything that is done to disrupt it is a good thing.

Oh yeah with his shoe company/deal with Adidas/Gap/etc it’s over a billion for sure. People were skeptical of it as him bragging, but if I recall it’s been verified as worth well over 1 billion.

But the vast majority of his wealth is the shoe company, which lets face it - fashion is fickle, he’d be smart to start divesting and diversifying. He could lose it all very quickly

How is it slavery when you are choosing to do this job, you are being paid well for this job and you have freedom to travel and live wherever you want? Their lives are the exact opposite of slavery and frankly, like women and false rape accusations, they do a disservice to the people that are truly enduring slavery even to this day.

I like Kanye for being so outspoken about the truth in hollywood but come on... eff off with this claim to slavery bs.

Frankly, his posts like this make me wonder if Kim is not telling the truth that he has bipolar or some other mental issues. This whole statement is just about as far fetched as one can be. At the very least it's narcissistic as hell. The new Moses??? Sure.

but when he says he needs to see everyone's contracts that doesn't sound like he's talking about sex rings. That sounds like he thinks they are being hosed by their agents and aren't being paid as they should be. I seriously doubt there are contracts that spell out requiring sex acts.

15
Chick-fill-eh 15 points ago +15 / -0

Oh no, it won't be so obvious. But there will certainly be verbiage that gives the agency some control of what they are allowed to say / support.

The sex acts likely came before the contract was offered. (Looking at you, Jlaw)

ChickNorris 3 points ago +3 / -0

I know they do this. At the same time the stars themselves are still very, very rich. There is no slavery going on in that industry except perhaps the mental slavery someone else referenced. And also excepting those that are victims of MKUltra type stuff.

Do the stars get paid? Yes. Then they are not slaves, period. Perhaps they have been taken advantage of, maybe they needed someone looking out for their best interests, but they are not slaves.

Did the drunk girl that had sex and regrets it the next day get raped? IDK, did she go along willingly? Was she into the guy and into the sex? If so, it's not rape even though people will call it that because she was drunk. There's a big difference between being brutally beaten and raped by a stranger and getting drunk, having sex with someone and then regretting it.

There's a big difference between forced labor for which you are not paid and people that sing, dance or act and get paid but the adults that signed their contracts maintain some sort of control over them. Slavery is slavery. Stars making millions and billions of dollars are not slaves.

3
Oldjeansandbelt 3 points ago +3 / -0

Wrong. Look how they can't say bad things on social media about China, how they can't have specific political views. That's mind control, that's not freedom. What's the point of money if you lose free will and free expression?

1
ChickNorris 1 point ago +1 / -0

You're right. I guess I'm viewing slavery as expressly the function of humans made to do work for which they are not compensated. In the way that you describe they are a slave to whoever pays their check. I guess I'm also a slave to my company since there are things we have been instructed not to discuss on social media, etc. Like, if the company is doing poorly you don't put it out on blast. It is what it is.

3
Lysah 3 points ago +3 / -0

Don't think he's even talking about "free will." Usually when Kanye mentions slavery he means thought slavery - i.e. the people under these contracts are required to be liberals and push the globalist agenda and do their part to make sure all normie blacks follow in their footsteps. Kind of like the blacks that lived in plantation homes and had special privileges but had to keep an eye on the field workers.

The money, sex, and worship are all dependent on their adherence to left-wing orthodoxy. They are slaves, but they get all the goodies because it provides a distraction to the public who idolize the money, sex, and perceived power - therein making them slaves as well.

DrCowboyPresident 7 points ago +7 / -0

By that metric, historical Kings were all slaves, because their power was dependent on maintaining the balance of the various powerful people and groups underneath them. Piss too many off at once; there rolls your head.

No; slave has a specific meaning. It means someone robbed of all personal agency.

I wonder whether the possibly incredibly manipulative "music" and media that the artists and "artists" are assigned to perform and which might have a considerable effect on (tens or hundreds?) of millions in the USA and worldwide, might end up changing as well (hopefully for the better) if contracts are changed and improved for the artists and "artists". But I am not certain.

Subrace crap like assigning everyone colors or ethnicities is not going to do shit any more than say doing it by state. Tell me it isn't subracism rather than racism. How? How are you going to be effective with a baker's dozen beating your chests when you think someone just profiled you?

YuriBezmenov -5 points ago +1 / -6

"Why the hell are you stepping on others?"

This is just hilarious to be honest. I'm not stepping on anybody by saying that whites need to redevelop their in-group preference and look out for each other; every other race does the same but whites have been brainwashed to be bleeding heart idiots.

When you say "Why the hell are you stepping on others?" it's like getting mad at a guy who always pays the bill when you go out to eat, and then the one time he asks you to pay for yourself you get angry and feel you're being treated unfairly.

It's never enough when it comes to minority groups in America. They want us to subsidize everything for them, put rules in place that give them special treatment, and then brainwash our kids by demonizing every aspect of white culture. There's even people in academia pushing to say the US wasn't settled/formed and made prosperous by whites.

I'm not advocating for stepping on anybody, I'm advocating for stepping around others and keeping to ourselves. American culture has proven that "equality" is a zero-sum game, either people like me are at the top or someone else is.

1
philandy 1 point ago +1 / -0

Sure, whites definitely could step up and be an army of 10 millionish who might actually do something like that at best. How is it civil though? It's not.

Or 50 million Americans could work together being civil.

I only said "don't step on me" because you inferred I was white. I also don't ask those I'm going out with to pay the bill unless they offer.

And yes we should be able to keep to ourselves. We should also go back to civil equity, like suffrage worked out. Yes, the whole racist "diversity" thing has failed thanks to these critical idiots.

-4
YuriBezmenov -4 points ago +2 / -6

Again, why does it have to be armies? You're the one bringing that into this. I'm simply saying whites should help other whites and themselves before worrying about other people. Whites should hire other whites preferentially, and do things in general that benefit us. Not out of spite, but because it's what every other ethnicity does without a second thought. If we don't look out for ourselves we're doomed to obscurity. We shouldn't be subsidizing becoming a minority in our own country and handing over the reigns to people who hate us.

I don't hate other people or even want them to leave or any of that nonsense. I just want them to leave whites the fuck alone and carry their own weight. I'm tired of the normalization of hating on white people. You think I'm being hostile towards you but I'm really not. You're just used to other whites being pussy-footed pushovers.

Kanye is way out there, but he’s actually right. If you look up the record company’s contracts, you’ll see that they’re all fucked. They offer new artists these deals called “360 deals” that literally profit off every thing the artist does. Damn near 100% of record profits and they receive 25% of outside ventures as well. The NBA is bought out by the Chinese and the players really don’t have a choice but to conform. You might look at these players and artists and think that they’re rich and have it made, but a majority go broke after their shining moments. These organizations get the most they can out of you, and then toss you aside.

RedditIs4Retards 5 points ago +5 / -0

It's their own damn fault they go broke.

But I do agree, he's not talking about financial slavery here. Nobody seems to be able to look past the dollar signs.

I think there's a possibility they're contractually obligated to fall in line and push propaganda as the elite see fit. That's probably what he's referring to.

dfponysoldier 4 points ago +4 / -0

Exactly. They are slaves to the organizations they are apart of. They will become whatever they are told to be. A great example is Katy Perry.

All of those organizations have rules and because they start flashing big $$$ signs people go into it with their eyes closed not realizing they're selling themselves as a product.

Kanye is a tribalist and is not MAGA. Do you think would put on a red hat and say nice things about the Trump if Trump wasn't trying to change the sentencing for drug-related crimes (AKA prison reform)?

The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships.

What makes the music industry different from any other form of media like TV, movies, or book deals?

What makes the NBA different from the PGA, NHL, MLB, UFC, or NFL?

It's because he sees these industries as affecting "his people" aka blacks and is have delusions of grandeur thinking he's going to deliver them.

I get sooo sick and tired of "conservatives" blaming absolutely every single person and group besides black people for their decisions.

BLACK PEOPLE HAVE MORAL AGENCY AND CAN MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS, BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR DECISIONS, AND DEAL WITH THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR DECISIONS.

2
RiverFenix 2 points ago +2 / -0

He doesn't mention race in his tweet - you're just assuming that because he is black he is saying his people are black.

Maybe he's talking about his fans. Maybe he's referring to his friends in the music and sports industries. Maybe he's talking about anyone who isn't a satanic pedovore.

Besides - even if he is trying to free the black man's mind from the self-imposed plantation.. as a white guy I support that and don't need Kanye to advocate for me. Empowered blacks doesn't necessarily equal disempowered whites in my view. I want strong powerful friends. I don't need everything to be about me. I'm not enslaved, I am enslaved, I'm not privileged, I am privileged. I'll deal with my own situation and I already have a Champion - Trump. If I were black, and my champion was Kanye - I wouldn't care why he doesn't motivate you either. He's not talking to you, he's talking to me and anyone who wants to listen.

Aside from this caveat, I agree with you. Black or White, moral agency and decency and personal responsibility are on all of us as individuals.

1
The_Peter 1 point ago +1 / -0

He doesn't mention race in his tweet

No, he doesn't but I'm reading between the lines and maybe reading too much into that.

I have no problem with Kanye being an advocate for black people and have no problem with him being someone the blacks can look up to.

What I do have a problem with is people like Kanye taking a situation that has multiple willing parties and then framing that situation in a way that makes it seem like one group is unilaterally taking advantage of another group without their consent.

Kanye used the words "enslaved" and "slaveship" with no mention of the role he or "his people" in the music and sports industries played in putting themselves in that situation. He literally frames the situation like they're helpless when in reality they sold their souls to the devil and are getting upset when the devil wants his due.

That's the problem, Kanye isn't helping anybody when he blames everyone except "his people". Instead of saying "we made a big mistake with our decision and it's going to cost us some of our fortune" or warning others not to make the same mistakes, he blames it all on something outside of himself.

2
RiverFenix 2 points ago +2 / -0

Give it time.

First Kanye needs to awaken people to their slavery, before he can identify who the slave holders are.

Sure - there's the issue of celebrities being taken advantage of by labels and dealmakers.. (like Weinsteins).. and that's a totally separate issue from the Dem mental enslavement of the black population. They're related of course - The Dems use the celebrities, who in turn have no choice but to parrot what they're programmed to say. Kanye IS a celebrity, and he's an outcast from Hollyweird which makes him a rebel like us. He knows this and while he's fighting for Blacks, it benefits us all because those who hold the blacks down isn't necessarily whites - but evil mother fuckers of all shades. We share a common enemy.

If Blacks need to form mobs to go after the other Blacks who've been helping to hold them all down.. I'm not going to get in the way of that. I will keep a vigilant eye on where blame is cast. I don't tolerate shoving blame indescriminately onto other groups (like we were seeing with reparations and modern blacks holding modern whites to blame for ancient whites and black enslavement with no disregard to the slave trading anywhere else but America)
