Apparently, record execs over at Def Jam Records got an always-mad reputation after finding out that Kanye West's music video for Bound 2 had gone up on Kim's YouTube without their permission.
Kanye has since been told to tell Kim to take it down, which was bound 2 happen.
“Whatever Kim or Kanye were thinking, it was a ridiculous decision made without consultation. Kanye is an artist signed to Def Jam and it is the label who makes decisions about where videos and songs are released, not Kanye — and most certainly not Kim. From what the label can gather, Kim totally acted on her own accord. Her decision has cost the label a serious amount of money — and in the process, made her revenue from advertising on her YouTube page. Thankfully, the issue has since been corrected and Bound 2 is now on Kanye’s own VEVO page which is where it should have been released, in the first instance."
Well, we're glad the problem is rectified!
