Kanye West returns to Twitter with a live rant: “I am the best living recording artist”

The rapper made his return to Twitter.

October 13, 2018

Just a week after deactivating his social media accounts, Kanye West is back on his favorite platform to share his thoughts on everything from mind control to being the best living recording artist; going live on Periscope this time around for a 9-minute rant. "You know, when people try to influence you through social media and try to tell you what to do, or if you post something that's like positive on Instagram it gets taken down if it's not a part of a bigger agenda. That's like mind control," he explained. West also claims he's being barred from buying the publishing rights to his music from Sony/ATV, that he spoke with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about removing followers and likes from the website and that he's the "best living recording artist" with the spirits of Fela Kuti, Bob Marley and Tupac Shakur "flowing through him."
