Kanye West - Kanye West wants fairer music industry

Kanye West claims the music industry isn't fair towards black artists.

The 'Stronger' rapper insists white singers have an unfair advantage when it comes to award shows as they are almost always likely to win because the music isn't taken into consideration.

He ranted: ''Taylor Swift beat Beyonce at the Grammys? Beyonce be dancing in heels and sh*t.

''We need the music business to be evened out and fair. I've never won a Grammy against a white artist. I'm motherf***ing Kanye West, we can create a human utopia if we try.''

Taylor beat Beyonce to claim album of the year in 2010 for 'Fearless' ahead of Beyonce's 'I Am... Sasha Fierce'.

Kanye - who interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, saying Beyonce should have won - gave the 20-minute rant during his London concert on Saturday (23.02.13) in which he also criticised artists who sell out.

According to The Sun newspaper Kanye - who is expecting a baby with reality TV star Kim Kardashian and has his own fashion range - slammed singers who use their fame to sell ''shampoo with their face on''.
