Kanye West ends music on CDs, goes online
American rapper and fashion designer Kanye West has declared on one of his social media pages that he will no longer produce compact discs for his music.
This comes just after the father of two, released his new album; The life of Pablo only on Tidal.
On the other hand, Kanye also commented on his 2013’s Yeezus album packaging terming it as ‘an open casket to CDs’.
Through a tweet on his handle, the controversial rapper said: “I was thinking about not making CDs ever again…only streaming.”
The Mercy hitmaker posted several tweets on the subject:
uuuuuuum, so there it is… No more CDs from me
the Yeezus album packaging was an open casket to CDs r.i.p
This move by the rapper has elicited mixed reactions from his fans. According to his tweets, some people have different options for Kanye such as the use of Vinyl and minidiscs instead of CDs.
@kanyewest – you should still release some kind of physical media. Maybe vinyl? People still enjoy the tactile music experience.

Recently, Kanye West was in the headlines after asking Facebook Inc’s Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg to loan him $53 million to settle his debts and invest $1 billion in his “ideas.”
West asked his Twitter followers to urge Zuckerberg to support him.
“World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, Instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…West tweeted. (@kanyewest) (http://bit.ly/1Tj2nK9).”
Further, the rapper also asked Alphabet Inc CEO Larry Page to help him with his financial troubles.
However, West, who claimed he was “still 53 million dollars in personal debt’, said that people do not give money to “real artists” like him but rather open schools in Africa.
