"I love love love white people but you don't understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves and make it this far."

A little more than an hour before the Grammys were to start Monday night, Kanye West wrote another series of controversial tweets, this time asking "white publications" to not write about "black music."

West singled out The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork as "white publications" that should not be writing about black music.

West also said his highly anticipated album, The Life of Pablo, will not be available on iTunes or in stores. It can only be found on Tidal, he tweeted. West has been a supporter of the subscription-based music-streaming service owned by Jay Z since it was introduced in 2014.
