Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West is back-back. The G.O.O.D Music boss has returned to his Twitter grind hours after getting locked out of the system for doing the most with his tweets.
Kanye West’s First Tweet
Yeezy returned to Twitter with some pure troll-worthy motivation. Kanye shared a screenshot of Forbes editor Randall Lane‘s iPhone contact but made sure not to reveal his contact info this time around.
“First tweet back … without the phone number 🤣 … WE’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE … LOOK HOW ALL THE ARTIST STOOD UP PRAISE GOD MY BROTHERS ITS TIME FOR FREEDOM KEEP PRAYING” -Kanye West’s Twitter
The social media giant’s decision to lock out Kanye from his own Twitter page came shortly after he shared the editor and chief content officer of Forbes‘ actual phone number to his millions of followers.
“If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist … this is the editor of Forbes,” West, 43, tweeted along with the contact information for Randall Lane, who he dubbed “Randall Forbes.” The since-deleted tweet has “violated the Twitter Rules,” according to the notice that comes up using the original link.

The Forbes Drama
The tensions between Kanye and the financial publication appeared to stem from not getting called a billionaire. Ye also landed on the August 2019 cover story for Forbes Magazine.
After the feature was released, he criticized the fact that the magazine had not acknowledged him as a billionaire. According to Forbes, West claimed, “I showed them a $890 million receipt, and they still didn’t say ‘billionaire.’” Earlier this year, West complained once again after Forbes did not include him on their annual billionaires list. Forbes claimed that West texted “You know what you’re doing. You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name,” adding that he also accused them of “suppress[ing] his self-made narrative because of his race.” (HEAVY)
Dame Dash Defends Kanye West
This week, former Roc-A-Fella Records co-owner Damon “Dame” Dash went online to speak up for West. Dash said no matter what Kanye had on his mind he would fully support.
“I dont know why they’re shutting my brothers Twitter down for 12 hours but whatever he wants to do I’m with it. #familyfirst #independenceisfreedom”
Dash even took a moment to fully address Kanye’s current situation and said he supported independence.
Social Media Rips Kanye West
This week, social media unloaded pure fire on Ye for his ultimate disrespect to a Grammy Awards trophy. People’s issues ranged from Kanye appearing as a sellout to putting fans through a seemingly bi-monthly social media outburst following his urination clip posting to his Twitter page.
