The nod comes two months after he shared a video which appears to show him peeing on his grammy, after placing it in the toilet bowl.

The rappers video came after he had hit out at the record industry, and put record label Universal on blast, alleging he had signed over 10 contracts with the label and that they had tried to “bury him alive.”
