Kanye West’s upcoming album was “rejected by major record labels” after antisemitism allegations

Kanye West, a prominent figure in the rap industry since the early 2000s, has faced significant challenges with his latest album due to allegations of antisemitism. Major record labels have reportedly shown reluctance to engage with the 46-year-old artist for his 11th studio album, following his 2021 release “Donda.”

West, who spent the summer traveling across Europe with his wife, Bianca Censori, 28, has already completed the album in collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign. However, over the past year, the American rapper has faced recurrent accusations of antisemitism, including a recent incident where he applied for a trademark using the phrase ‘Yews.’

These allegations have taken a toll on West’s personal life, with even his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, expressing distress over the situation, expressing a desire to avoid discussing it further. Consequently, West is currently exploring options with smaller record labels to release his new music, following multiple rejections from major industry players, as reported by Billboard.

In the previous year, West posted tweets expressing extreme hostility towards Jewish people, leading to the suspension of his account on the social media platform. He later made controversial statements during an appearance on the Info Wars podcast, where he expressed admiration for Hitler and suggested positive aspects about him. These comments resulted in the termination of several brand partnerships, including Adidas. Now, West’s latest album is encountering challenges in finding a home with larger record labels.
