Kanye West’s ex-employee claims the rapper was obsessed with Hitler

Kanye West intended to release an album titled “Hitler” by the fascination he felt for the dictatoraccording to music industry workers told the chain CNN.

According to four members of his team, the rapper, who in recent days has lost millionaire contracts with brands such as Adidas and Balenciaga for his anti-Semitic comments and racist provocations, spoke on several occasions about Adolf Hitler and admired Nazi Party propaganda.

Such was the fascination he felt for his figure, that West tried to title one of his albums “Hitler”, which was finally published in 2018 under the name “Ye”a word that he now uses as a nickname to refer to himself.

“He hailed Hitler by saying how amazing he was and was able to amass so much powerand then he talked about all the things that the Nazi Party would have achieved for the German people,” he told the outlet without revealing his identity.

The businessman made the decision to leave the company, after managing numerous complaints of harassment and bad practices in the work environment. In fact, he asked not to be identified because of a confidentiality agreement signed with West.

According to this source, the environment close to the rapper knew his obsession with the book my fightin which the dictator shaped much of his ideology in 1925.

Kanye West is no longer under contract with Universal Music

After the publication of the news, Universal Music Group, the multinational that until now published West’s music, confirmed that his contract with the rapper’s label ended last year.

“There is no place for anti-Semitism in our society. We are deeply committed to combating anti-Semitism and all forms of prejudice,” the company said in a statement.

On Wednesday, sneaker brand Skechers confirmed that West was kicked out of their offices in Los Angeles (USA) since he showed up without prior notice and the company “has no intention of working” with him.

The rudeness is the latest in a chain that has led firms such as Adidas, Balenciaga and the CAA representation agency, one of the most important in the country, to terminate their contracts with the rapper for his racist and anti-Semitic comments.

Days before, the author of ‘Yeezus’ wore a T-shirt with the mensaje “White Lives Matter” (“White lives matter”), a slogan often used by white supremacists in response to the “Black Lives Matter” anti-racism movement.

In the midst of this cycle of provocations, Twitter and Instagram they blocked the accounts of West on their platforms, where countless users denounced a series of anti-Semitic comments related to Jared Kushner, a Jew and son-in-law of his “friend”, former President Donald Trump, saying that he was the man behind peace treaties in the Middle East , gestated only to “make money”.

West, also known as Ye, admitted a few years ago that he suffers from bipolar disorder and, among other striking actions, came to present himself as presidential candidate of the USA in several states during the 2020 elections.
