The 38-year-old rapper Kanye West is at the centre of controversy once again.
West is himself a Pirate Lover just like everyone else, and he proved it today by sharing a photo of his laptop screen on Twitter.
The rapper tweeted an ill-judged picture on Tuesday night to show what he was listening to on YouTube (Sufjan Stevens’ 'Death With Dignity' song), but his fans discovered something he would have hide if realized before sharing that snap.
Taking a closer look at the address bar was quite revealing, showing two very interesting tabs:
West’s recent album The Life of Pablo was involved in a piracy concern. He was so outraged when he saw his recent album was being pirated by 500,000 downloads in just two days that he considered taking legal action against The Pirate Bay.
However, in a recent tweet West accidentally revealed his own pirate habits.
It looks like the controversial rapper was torrenting a pirated copy of Xfer Records synthesizer software Serum on The Pirate Bay. The serum is a popular WaveTable editor that costs just $189 for a license.
However, despite having harsh feelings, the Pirate Bay team said it was happy to provide West with tech support.
