43 year old rapper ''Kanye West'' who is demanding to be released from his recording and publishing deals, uploaded photos of his contracts on Twitter.

"I need every lawyer in the world to look at these," he told his followers, while referring to the music industry as "modern-day slavery".

The documents also confirm that West himself is a label owner, his G.O.O.D. Music label has been distributed through Universal since 2004 who presumably subjects his artists to the same standard contracts that are common throughout the industry.

Taking aim at the wider music industry, he later posted a video of someone urinating on a Grammy award.

Last night, prior to sharing the documents, Kanye expressed a desire to speak with people at Vivendi, the French media conglomerate that majority owns Universal Media Group.
