Ye And JPMorgan Had Been Planning To Break Their Banks For Weeks

The hip-hop star formerly known as Kanye West and JPMorgan Chase are breaking up, although the split is unrelated to the issue surrounding the rapper’s recent antisemitic remarks.

Kanye West and JPMorgan Chase

Ye is a rapper, songwriter, record producer, and fashion designer from the United States. He is regarded as one of the greatest musicians of his generation as well as one of the most renowned and significant hip-hop artists of all time.

West originally rose to fame as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s. He was born in Atlanta and raised in the middle-class, largely white suburb of Oak Lawn, Illinois. He was involved in single production for a number of artists and invented the “chipmunk soul” sampling technique. To launch a solo rap career, he put out his first studio album, The College Dropout (2004), to critical and commercial acclaim. He started the record label GOOD Music later that year.

On the albums, Late Registration (2005), Graduation (2007), and 808s & Heartbreak, West experimented with a variety of musical components, including orchestras, synths, and autotune (2008). His fifth and sixth albums, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010) and Yeezus (2013), drew inspiration from maximalism and minimalism and were both critically and commercially successful. With The Life of Pablo (2016) and Ye (2018), West expanded his range of musical genres, and Jesus Is King (2018) saw him go into Christian and gospel music (2019). His much-anticipated tenth album, Donda (2021), was finally released after numerous delays to mixed reviews from critics and sustained commercial success. A few months later, he produced Donda 2 (2022), which was only available through his associated audio speaker service. The full-length collaborative albums Watch the Throne (2011) by Jay-Z and Kids See Ghosts (2018) by Kid Cudi are also included in Kanye West’s catalog.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is a Delaware-incorporated, New York City-based international investment bank and financial services holding corporation. As of 2022, JPMorgan Chase had total assets of US$3.954 trillion, making it the largest bank in the US, the largest bank in the world by market capitalization, and the sixth-largest bank overall. In addition, JPMorgan Chase is included as the 24th largest American firm by total revenue on the Fortune 500 list. It is considered a systemically important bank by the Financial Stability Board.

The current business was once known as Chemical Bank, which took on Chase Manhattan’s name after the acquisition. In 2000, J.P. Morgan & Co. and Chase Manhattan Corporation amalgamated, creating the current business.

Right-wing commentator Candace Owens tweeted on Wednesday night that the rapper had been “kicked out” by JPMorgan for no apparent reason and included a screenshot of what appeared to be a letter from the bank.

The rapper is given until November 21 to find a new bank after receiving notice that JPMorgan is terminating its “banking relationship” with him and his business, Yeezy, in the letter.

In recent months, West has criticized several of his business partners, notably Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan, and other senior executives Bill Grous and Jing Ulrich.

There has been “a lot of manipulating and handling to inhibit my potential to affect the American economy and industry,” according to a recent Instagram post by Kanye West.

Background

In recent weeks, West has become mired in several controversies after making multiple antisemitic remarks on social media and in interviews. Additionally, courting controversy, the rapper sent out a “White Lives Matter” jersey on the runway during last week’s Yeezy brand fashion presentation. Instagram and Twitter have blocked West’s access to their sites due to his outbursts on social media. The rapper appeared on Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson’s show after being banned from social media. Still, parts of his interview in which he made antisemitic remarks and other bizarre, conspiratorial statements were cut out. After Kanye allegedly exploited the program to promote “hate speech and extremely hazardous stereotypes,” the LeBron James-hosted chat show “The Shop” decided not to run the episode.
