We've been seeing more of Ye' as of late from the IG clips of him in Africa to his Sunday Service. One thing we do know is that he will NOT be retiring anytime soon according to his Publishing deal. Yeezy wants out of the contract claiming that he has fulfilled his obligations. The details of the contract are as follow
“You (Mr. West) hereby represent and warrant that to [EMI] that you will, throughout the term as extended by this modification, remain actively involved in writing, recording and producing Compositions and Major Label Albums, as your principle occupation. At no time during the term will you seek to retire as a songwriter, recording artist or producer or take any extended hiatus during which you are not actively pursuing your musical career in the same basic manner as you have pursued such career to date (The preceding representation shall not be deemed to prevent you from taking a vacation of limited duration.)”
This is a direct result of West filing a lawsuit against EMI and Roc-A-Fella Records so he could “obtain his freedom” from the record label and publishing contracts. Mr. West is currently looking to sign new deals with other labels and publishers saying that EMI has made profits from his work for millions of dollars unjustly. He cites California Labor Code section 2855 that says personal service contracts should only last seven years, when he’s been under the deal for twice that amount of time. If he can win the case, he wants ownership of compositions he’s already released, dating back to October 2010 (the date of which the original deal should have been terminated according to the labor code).
