Kanye West I’m No Music Pirate But I’m a Huge Troll
Kanye West is not jacking music and software off the Internet and the tweet he posted that suggests otherwise was all a setup to mess with haters.
Yeezy came under fire Tuesday when he posted a pic of a desktop monitor with a song by Sufjan Stevens the only problem was, the other browser tabs were filled with sites used for illegal downloading.
‘Ye was in the studio Tuesday and thought it’d be funny to send out the pic. He’s well aware ‘TLOP’ has been pirated more than 500k times, and while he’d never steal music … he knew the Internet would have a field day.
He got what he wanted though … the tweet pissed off not just random haters, but famous ones. Fellow Tidal artist Deadmau5 jumped all over Kanye for promoting piracy. West is laughing it off by cracking jokes about the DJ’s mouse helmet.
