Kanye West Reflects On Lauryn Hill & The Music Business

Kanye West uses the career of the iconic Lauryn Hill to call out the entertainment business on social media over the weekend.

Kanye West reflected on the career of Lauryn Hill on Instagram, Saturday, wondering what her recording contract looked like and whether it played a role in her decision to stop releasing music. In the post, he referenced Talib Kweli, who responded on his own page.

“Love is the answer,” Ye captioned a photo of the iconic singer. “God is Love Does anyone wonder what Ms. Hill’s recording contract looked like and why she stopped recording professionally. We no longer will be used to oppression Kweli was right on so many things. Sway was right. When you sell your name and likeness Let’s free ourselves and bring back this frequency #lovespeech.”

Hill’s daughter, who modeled at West’s recent controversial fashion show, agreed in the comments section: “IT WAS FUCKED.” The 23-year-old came under fire for wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt at the YZY SZN 9 show.

As for Kweli’s response, the legendary rapper wrote back: “I didn’t want to be right. I wanted YOU to be right @kanyewest.”

He added: “You said on @drinkchamps that the people who were mad at your MAGA hat were the people that loved you. You were correct about that. The people who love you are going to be the only ones that tell you the truth. Stay away from anti black grifters like @realcandaceowens she ain’t got the answers Fam. Shout out to @realsway shout out to @mslaurynhill.”

In other Kanye West legal news, he has apologized for his comment about George Floyd on Drink Champs as defamation cases cannot be made regarding a dead person, the family’s legal team claimed that the comments had damaging effects on his daughter.

However, Floyd’s family has since paused the multi-million dollar suit against Ye.

Following this, the father of four issued a public apology for his controversial comments.

“When I see that video as a Black person, it hurts my feelings. And I know that police do attack and that America is generally racist… So when I questioned the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people. I want to apologize. Because God has showed me by what Adidas is doing, by what the media is doing, I know what it feels to have a knee on my neck right now,” he told the paparazzi on Friday.

He then questioned how much she received from the Black Lives Matter association.

“Now because of words you want to sue me for 250 million dollars… when I’m going through an Economic Lynching. A Digital Lynching. A Social Credit Score bankrupting,” he added.

Ye ended his rant by adding, “I apologized to you and the black community for my comments on Drink Champs. Humbly… Now come get Roxie before she mess up y’all money.”
