There are several problems that have caused the well-known rapper Kanye West, several of them related to politics and contemplated within their themes, causing fire in social networks.
West has not been afraid to admit his admiration for the figure of the dictator Adolf Hitler and has observed the propaganda of the same given the fascination he felt for him, already admitted in an interview conducted by TMZ where he highlighted his phrase “I love Hitler and I love Nazis”.
With that, he and several members of his team have wanted to take the name “Hitler” to establish it to his new and eighth album, according to industry workers tell CNN, one of them, with unknown identity, assured that “he hailed Hitler by saying how he was amazing and could accumulate so much power, and then talked about all the things that the Nazi Party would have achieved for the German people”.
This is not the first time that the singer has proposed the name for his publications. Already in 2018, he wanted to put the same to one of his albums, currently called “Ye”, as he now calls himself, after a refusal from the team.
The rapper’s admiration for the dictator and many other defamatory comments has meant a loss of important collaborations for West, given the cancellation of contracts with major brands such as Adidas, which decides to break the contract at the time of learning the news, explaining that the rapper’s statements “violate the company’s values such as diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness”. In addition, the singer suffered retaliation on his social networks given that Instagram and Twitter, after different disturbances and discriminatory messages, deleted his official accounts.
But it also marks a before and after with what was West’s music publisher, Universal Music Group, which after the riot comes out to confirm that his contract ended last year with official statements. “There is no place for anti-Semitism in our society. We are deeply committed to combating anti-Semitism and all forms of prejudice.”
Thus, the singer has once again provoked a new chapter of anti-Semitism in his musical career.
