Ozzy Osbourne, here in 2022, pinned Kanye West on February 9, 2024.
MUSIC – The fury of Ozzy Osbourne. The heavy metal singer sent an angry message to Ye (Kanye West) this Friday, February 9, after discovering that the rapper had used a Black Sabbath concert sample on his new album.
In an all-caps tweet, the British rocker claims that Kanye West used a live version of the song War Pigs/Iron Man sung during an American festival by Black Sabbath in 1983 without authorization.
If he did ask permission to use an extract in his album Cultures in collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, the group would have said no to him. The reason is given by Ozzy Osbourne on X: “He is an anti-Semite and has caused headaches for many people. »
Ye and his recurring anti-Semitic remarks
“He still used the sample at his album listening party last night [jeudi à Chicago, NDLR]. I don’t want to be associated with this man! », insisted the Prince of Darkness, whose wife Sharon is Jewish. The latter, questioned by TMZsaid : “Kanye messed with the wrong Jew this time. »
The rapper has repeatedly come under fire for his anti-Semitic comments. “I have had enough of labels, every human being has contributed something of value, especially Hitler,” for example, he declared in 2022, adding that he “ loved the Nazis ». Moreover according to the NYPost, the live dedicated to the record was cut when Kanye West once again made anti-Semitic comments.
The release date of Cultures has been postponed several times. Expected in December, the album was finally announced for this Friday. As these lines are written, fans are still waiting.
