Kanye West says he has no plans to make any more music, at least until he is freed from his current contracts.
The presidential hopeful, who failed to release a new album titled "Donda" earlier this summer, made the announcement in a series of tweets Monday night while also throwing shade at rappers J. Cole and Drake.
“I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal,” he tweeted Monday. “On God … in Jesus name … come and get me.”

“I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony … I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved," West said in another tweet. "I’m putting my life on the line for my people."
"The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships," Kim Kardashian's husband continued. "I’m the new Moses.”

He continued to discuss his possible departure from Universal and Sony in another tweet on Tuesday. The tweet showed a screenshot of text messages between him and an unidentified person who provided advice about what the rapper should do regarding his contracts.
The person, presumably a lawyer, suggested he argue in court that the labels haven’t fully supported him. “If we went that route we would litigate and ask for your masters as part of a settlement. It’s a high risk but high reward strategy,” the individual wrote, adding that West owning his masters could be costly, reminding the rapper of the situation his nemesis Taylor Swift encountered.
"But if Taylor's cost 300 million yours would cost a lot more I'd assume," the person continued.
West was also given two other suggestions such as rerecording his works to own his masters or settling on a joint business venture between Universal and Yeezy, “one that is equal and not one-sided.”
The rapper responded, “I’m not open to any form of business with Universal or Sony.”
The “Follow God” rapper previously declared, “My kids gonna own my masters.”
West also demanded an apology from Cole, 35, and Drake, 33, who he’s had a history of beef with.
“I need a publicly [sic] apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately … I’m Nat Turner … I’m fighting for us,” he wrote.
“I’m not industry bro … I don’t care… I’m in service to Christ … we need world healing … I miss my brothers… I refuse to argue with black men on labels we don’t own… even twitter,” West said in another tweet.

He added: “I have the utmost respect for all brothers … we need to link and respect each other… no more dissing each other on labels we don’t own.”
“I’m the 2nd richest black man in America … I need all my people with me for us to get free,” the rapper continued in his tweetstorm, according to reports.
He later deleted that, explaining, “I deleted that tweet about riches… the wealth is in our love of family and our brothers and our service to God … let’s rise up… let’s communicate.”

“I’m waiting to meet with Sean Carter also,” West said before adding in another tweet, “My bad I meant Shawn … no disrespect to my big bro.”
In one of his other tweets, he referenced Travis Scott's recent collaboration with McDonald’s. West argued that the rapper's deal may not have been celebrated by everyone.

“I’m sure Steve Stoute was hurt that he didn’t do the McDonald’s deal … Steve’s a good man Trav is a good man … my brothers let’s rise up … we don’t even own these companies,” the “Famous” rapper wrote.
Stoute, 50, previously declared, “I don’t want Black people voting for Kanye West,” on “The Boardroom: Out of Office” podcast.
