Ozzy Osbourne has lashed out against global superstar Kayne West, saying he wants “no association” with the rapper.
The Black Sabbath star tweeted on X (formerly Twitter) that the rapper used a sample of the song War Pigs without permission.
Osbourne said West was “refused permission because he is an antisemite and has caused untold heartache to many”.
The post occurred after the rapper hosted a listening party at Chicago’s United Center earlier this week for Vultures, the debut studio album by American hip hop superduo ¥$, composed of rapper Kanye West and singer Ty Dolla Sign.
The music event was streamed by the service Veeps, but the stream was allegedly shut down after the rapper, who also goes by the name Ye, rapped the lyric “and I’m still crazy, bipolar, anti-Semite. And I’m still the king.”
Osbourne is under fire in the comments of his post as images of the star and his wife Sharon Osbourne dressed as West and his wife Bianca Censori last Halloween emerged.
West is yet to respond publicly to Osbourne’s post.
