In another post, which is a screenshot of Donda 2 trending on Twitter, Ye vocalizes how tech companies are unfair towards the artists. Ye stated, “I turned down a hundred million apple deal. No one can pay me to be disrespected. We set our own price for our art. Tech companies made music practically free. So if you don’t do merch sneakers and tours, you don’t eat.”

In Kanye West style, he mocks apple in his next post saying “I love how Apple only sees the artist is only one way. They’ll sit with Daniel Ek but won’t meet with Ye. I remember me and Virg were with Daniel Ek in the club in Stockholm and he told me he could tell I get more pussy than him”.
