Kanye West vows to stop releasing CDs and will focus of streaming

Kanye West to stream music only in the future

Kanye West will no longer release CDs. The rap mogul announced on Monday that he would move forward by releasing his new singles and albums only through streaming music services.

According to Kanye, “The ‘Yeezus’ album packaging was an open casket to CDs” and there will be “no more CDs from me.”

Here’s his newest Twitter rant.

“Yeezus” was West’s sixth album and was released in 2013.

“The Life of Pablo,” his seventh album, was released in February. It was available his website for $20 and available on Tidal, Jay Z’s streaming service, of which West is also a co-owner.

The Life of Pablo was quickly removed from his website and made available only on Tidal.

It’s estimated that the new album has been heavily pirated to the tune of 500,000 copies since it was released on February 18.

Shortly after he announced his streaming-only plans West said it was “the best version of me” and told his fans to “please avoid trying to talk me out of being me in the future.”
