The rapper seems very determined to help Taylor Swift regain the masters of his six oldest albums after star manager Scooter Braun bought all rights without his knowledge! As you probably know, Kanye West had previously vowed to fix his situation just by being close to Braun!
Now, in a new interview, Ye has spoken about his plan again!
It is true! Kanye West just doubled down on his promise to get the masters of his Taylor Swift albums back from Scooter Braun, even though they never had a good relationship.
In a tweet he sent on September 18, the rapper promised that he would “ personally ” make sure this situation was resolved for the sake of the singer.
And now, less than a week later, he talks about this mission again via an interview for Billboard!
“All artists must be free and have their rights. Taylor Swift deserves it, like everyone else, ” he said via the post.
When asked if he had already discussed this with Scooter Braun, as he had vowed to do, he again insisted that: “ As I mentioned before, Scooter Braun is a friend and we’ll have that discussion ”, which means he didn’t.
Indeed, in his first tweet about it, Kanye called the star manager a “ CLOSE FRIEND OF THE FAMILY. ”
As for what really happened with him and Taylor, the singer called him for buying out his old label as well as the rights to all the albums released under their contract.
Taylor Swift called the situation a “ worst case scenario ” since Scooter is, apparently, a “ relentless bully and manipulator ” and has been for years.
As far as she is concerned, the man bought the masters of these albums just to control her and continue to intimidate her.
