This is AMAZING news, finally a rock solid reason to stick with Apple and iTunes this year, and to think I was considering the switch to Android. Thank you Mr West, thank you.

It's actually funny because in the end of the song 30 Hours, you can hear someone calling him, and it's the same default ringtone that iPhone's have. So maybe this hatred came upon Apple recently (probably in the last month.)

Kanye West is basically the musical equivalent of Donald Trump who are only interesting because they're basically Human train wrecks.

Kanye is a brilliant artist and is critically and the life of pablo acclaimed by the press (even the new york times). Though he is a dick, his music is creative and experimental. He has talent actually. Hate the artist, not the music.

Now that's an Apple exclusive I can get behind. Google, please try to make him stay off your service, too.

I was going to pirate it anyways, so this doesn't affect me.

Don't blame him on the iTunes, but other wise he is such an idiot.
