Ozzy Osbourne Furious, Blasts Kanye West For Using A Sample Of His Black Sabbath Song
The “No More Tears” singer Ozzy Osborne is mad at Kanye West and from the look of things, the “Graduation” rapper has got some explaining to do.
On Friday, the “Paranoid” singer took to the X platform which was formerly known as Twitter, for using a recording of a Black Sabbath song without permission.
The 75-year-old claimed that Kanye had initially requested to sample a part of his 1983 song “Iron Man” but was shut down on the grounds that the rapper is an “antisemite” who has refused to see the wrong in his actions. Ozzy made it clear that he wants nothing to do with Kanye, ever.
His post which was scribbled in all caps reads: “[Kanye West] ASKED PERMISSION TO SAMPLE A SECTION OF A 1983 LIVE PERFORMANCE OF ‘WAR PIG’ FROM THE US FESTIVAL WITHOUT VOCALS & WAS REFUSED PERMISSION BECAUSE HE IS AN ANTISEMITE AND HAS CAUSED UNTOLD HEARTACHE TO MANY.”
The post continued to read, “HE WENT AHEAD AND USED THE SAMPLE ANYWAY AT HIS ALBUM LISTENING PARTY LAST NIGHT,” before concluding with a sound, “I WANT NO ASSOCIATION WITH THIS MAN!”
Ozzy Osbourne — On Kanye’s ‘Antisemitic’ Lyrics
The “Donda” rapper made massive headlines following his antisemitic rants from late 2022.
Although he faced several backlash and lost a lot of business partners like Adidas, Gap, etc, Kanye has remained unapologetic about his actions. In December 2023, Kanye dropped more antisemitic words at the listening party for a song in his “Vulture” album.
More recently, on February 8, Kanye hosted another listening rave for the album which he collaborated with TY Dollar $ign. The 46-year-old had an agreement with Veeps, a streaming platform not to make anti-jewish comments like he did in his last party.
Well, trust Kanye to always do and say whatever he wants. He went on to rap the lyrics of one of the songs “And I’m still crazy, bipolar, antisemite. And I’m still the king.” Because Kanye broke the deal, Veeps pulled the plugs immediately, not minding that the performance was live.
After listening to the song, a spokesman from the American Jewish Committee Richard Hirschhaut told TMZ, “To fuel the flames of antisemitism and promote such bile to his millions of followers, especially at this fraught and dangerous time for the Jewish community, is unforgivable.”
