Ozzy Osbourne doesn’t tend to put people on blast very often unless he has good reason to. “The Prince Of Darkness” has been in rock headlines quite a bit lately, but nearly all of the stories have been related to his health and if he’ll be able to get back on stage to perform a proper farewell.
On Friday, however, Ozzy called out rapper Kanye West, who apparently wanted to sample a Black Sabbath classic, was denied, but then used the clip anyway.
Ozzy wrote on social media: “@kanyewest ASKED PERMISSION TO SAMPLE A SECTION OF A 1983 LIVE PERFORMANCE OF “WAR PIG” FROM THE US FESTIVAL WITHOUT VOCALS & WAS REFUSED PERMISSION BECAUSE HE IS AN ANTISEMITE AND HAS CAUSED UNTOLD HEARTACHE TO MANY. HE WENT AHEAD AND USED THE SAMPLE ANYWAY AT HIS ALBUM LISTENING PARTY LAST NIGHT. I WANT NO ASSOCIATION WITH THIS MAN!”
System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan called out Kanye earlier this year for posting a revealing photo of his wife, Bianca Censori. “Show some class man,” Dolmayan wrote. “You have kids who look to you for moral guidance and this is supposed to be the person you protect the most. Your wife isn’t supposed to be your trophy ,she’s your place of pride and dignity. This isn’t the way.”
Legendary NWO co-founder and two-time Hall of Fame wrestler Kevin Nash also ripped West last year for his anti-semetic views. “Antisemitism is the longest active hate in the history of mankind,” Nash wrote with a picture of West. “It dates before Christianity.”
