Kanye West made numerous antisemitic comments on social media and in interviews in recent weeks. This has caused widespread outrage, and his business partners are not happy. Balenciaga ended its relationship with Ye as well. Now, Def Jam Recordings is joining that list.

New York Times reports Kanye West and his G.O.O.D Music imprint are no longer under the Def Jam umbrella. At the moment there is no official word if Kanye’s recent antics played any role in his working relationship with Def Jam.

Pusha T, who signed with Kanye West’s GOOD Music imprint back in 2010, recently released It’s Almost Dry and 070 Shake’s You Can’t Kill Me. Both projects were distributed by Def Jam, despite Ye’s contract with the company expiring in 2021.

Earlier today, the talent agency CAA cut ties with Ye for his advocacy of anti-Semitism. This comes just a few days after Balenciaga and Vogue ended their relationship with the Chicago rapper.

Kanye West said during an interview with Piers Morgan that he is not sorry for his inflammatory remarks. His ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, also broke her silence on the matter and showed support for the Jewish community.
