Just as we thought this news was dying down, Kanye West is still steadfast in his antisemitic remarks.
As a result, more and more businesses are distancing themselves from him.
On Friday, yet another company that had partnered with the Chicago rapper said they would no longer do so.
Kano, the business that developed Kanye West's Stem Player, declared that they had terminated their relationship with Ye.
Kano has reportedly already begun to provide updated models of the tool that any artist, not just Kanye, may use.
Kano's top customer was Kanye West, who utilized the Stem Player to release Donda 2.
But as a result of West's persistent racism, his collaboration is now unworkable for the company. The co-founder and CEO of the Kano, Alex Klein, said, “I asked Kanye not to take the path he’s on. We’ve told him that we’re unable to work together while he’s putting out racial conspiracy theories.”
Sadly, Ye didn't pay attention. “There’s no deal in place", according to Klein.
Ye and Kano worked well together since the Donda 2 Stem Player sold 100,000 copies. Klein asserts that Kano has business outside of Kanye. Over a billion songs have been remixed, according to the CEO, and 90% of them aren't by Kanye West.
Klein has also suggested that Kano's decision to end their association with West wasn't only motivated by his antisemitism. It appears that Kanye had a strong attachment to the item. Klein added, "Unfortunately, Kanye didn't want to let other musicians onto the platform." "We had a disagreement that we had trouble resolving."
