Kanye West has shared shocking footage of himself urinating on a Grammy Award as he 'goes into battle' against labels Universal and Sony to try and retrieve the rights to his own music.

The rapper, 43, posted the vision to his Twitter feed on Wednesday afternoon, which showed one of his 21 Grammys placed inside of a toilet bowl.

'Trust me... I WON'T STOP,' West captioned the clip, which referred to his current bid to gain ownership of his masters - otherwise known as the copyright to his original songs.

On Monday, West started attacking the structure of the music industry, declaring that musicians actually had little to no power because record labels owned all of their work.

He took aim at his labels Universal and Sony and vowed not to release any new music until he was freed from his contracts with them.

West is seen after scooping three gongs at the 2006 Grammy Awards. He now says the accolades mean nothing if he does not have ownership of his own work

During his Wednesday Twitter rant, West also stated that he was too powerful to be 'muted or cancelled' and declared that he was rich enough to buy his masters from Universal and Sony.

'Universal won't tell me what my masters cost because they know I can afford to buy them,' he taunted in a tweet shared shortly after 9am.

West has a reported net worth of $1.3 billion. The cost of his masters is likely to be upwards of $300 million.

Back in 2018, Scooter Braun bought Big Machine Label Group for that price, acquiring almost all of Taylor Swift's masters in the process.

Meanwhile, West went on to share a number of Biblical verses, before writing: 'I KNOW MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST WILL MAKE FOOLS OF AND PUNISH ALL WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN UNFAIR CONTRACTS'.

He added: 'I will do everything in my legal power and use my voice until all artist contracts are changed, starting with getting my masters for my children. I will not stop, I promise you. I am petty and very personal.'

He further claimed that the bid to own his masters was to ensure the future financial security of the four children he shares with Kardashian.

Referencing his daughter, North, he stated: 'She will be able to do nothing but put up emojis for the rest of her life because my children will own my masters.'

On Monday, West hit out at the fact most artists do not own their masters.

'In the streaming world master ownership is everything... that is the bulk of the income ... in COVID artist need our masters,' he wrote.

'Artists are starving without tours ... Ima go get our masters ... for all artists ... pray for me.'

Later in the day, he reportedly tried to contact Universal and Sony about being released from his contracts.

The following day he shared a text conversation on Twitter about possibly taking legal action against Universal and Sony after failing to hear from them.

In the actual text conversation, the individual who could be a lawyer writes: 'Meaning that we can argue that Universal and Sony have not supported you fully. And that as a result they have breached. This is the lawsuit/termination nuclear option.'

The individual continues: 'If we went that route we would litigate and ask for your masters as part of a settlement. This is a high risk but high reward strategy.'

At some point, West and the individual spoke about Taylor Swift and the controversial $300million deal that Scooter Braun, who manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, struck in order to obtain her master recordings in 2019.

'Re masters ownership we can look into buying. But if Taylor's [Swift] cost $300million yours would cost a lot more I assume. Remember that if you re-recorded these songs you could own these new masters outright,' the person speaking with West wrote.

'A much more radical consideration would be to propose an entirely new relationship or joint venture with Universal. One that is equal and not one sided. I am not sure you are interested in that. But if [sic] could be a Yeezy Media/Universal joint venture play but one where you have the power,' the person continued.

In response to those text messages, West responded: 'I'm not open to any form of business with Universal or Sony.'

Mental issues seems to be eating Kanye West up and his family, particularly his wife has been too quiet about it. He needs to stay away from his phone and then checked into any psychiatric hospital because his tweet rate is alarming. Doing over 1000 tweets within an hour and worse off, they are mostly meaningless. Kim wants the world the world to believe that he is only having fun but Kanye is losing it. Uploading your music contract online for no reason and one wonders why the wife is not pushing for a rehab since she claims she will remain by his side.

Saying he has bipolar disorder then describing him as "brilliant and complicated" whose "words sometimes do not align with his intentions" is sugarcoating the truth.

His first presidential rally was a disaster. He broke down, cried and told the rally his father had wanted to abort him - and he "almost killed" his own daughter!

The fact that he tweets almost every second says a lot about whether or not he is getting treated.

The irony of all of these is that the same Grammy that Burna Boy is obsessed and got depressed over after losing to Angelique Kidjo is what another man peed on.

Life is not balanced truly.
