    Default Kanye West Rants About Apple Trading iTunes Placement Instead of Paying Artists

    We already know that Kanye West is not shy about speaking his mind when it comes to Apple. Earlier in the week, he credited Samsung and Jay Z for Apple’s decision in purchasing Beats Electronics. This time, he sat down in an interview with Bloomberg during the Cannes Creativity Festival and noted how he thought Apple did not see the value in investing into pop culture before the deal Samsung struck with Jay Z last year.

    West drives the point home by saying that Apple did not pay artists to perform at the iTunes Festival, and offered “extra space on the iTunes page” instead. It was already known that Apple was not paying artists to perform at the iTunes Festival- which for the first time ever, was held in the U.S. this year during the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. Tim Cook was called out by West earlier this year, however, we didn’t know that Apple was offering artists more space on their iTunes store in exchange for performances. According to West:

    It showed, now that Steve has passed… It showed a number one company the importance of connecting with culture. And I know you might of heard about this thing where I was on stage calling Tim Cook out and saying why do you have these guys performing at SXSW and you don’t want to pay them. You just want to give us extra space on the iTunes page and stuff. Meanwhile, Samsung realized, the whole point of what we’re saying, is that no you have to go and pay these guys. And that culture and creativity is worth something. The best thing about the fall of Blackberry and the rise at Apple is the win for creativity…
