Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West has sparked speculation that he uses illegal torrent sites.
The ‘All Day’ hitmaker caused controversy when he posted on Twitter a screenshot of his laptop to show he was listening to Sufjan Stevens, but it was the other tabs he had open which caught the eye of fans, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
While one tab read ‘Pirate Bay Torrent Xfe…’, another displayed ‘Xfer Records Serum t..’, prompting Twitterati, including producer Deadmau5, to accuse him of stealing wave table synthesiser programme Serum by Xfer Records.
The Electronic Dance Music star tweeted: “What the f*** @kanyewest… Can’t afford serum? D***. (sic)”
Deadmau5 also called on fans to donate money to help West who recently claimed he was $53 million in debt, to help him purchase the $189 music production programme, which is used to produce high-quality sound with an easy-to-use interface.
“Let’s start a kickstarter to help Kanye West afford a copy of Serum. He needs a small loan of $200 #prayforyeezy,” he posted.
