Ozzy Osbourne roars when ‘antisemite’ Kanye West allegedly samples his music without permission

Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne is bat-biting mad at “antisemite” Kanye West.

According to the iconic rocker, Ye sampled a 1983 live performance of “War Pigs” at a Chicago listening party he hosted with rapper Ty Dolla $ign for the upcoming album “Vultures.”

The controversial rapper, who has lost billions and been demonized for his bizarre rants, “sampled Ozzy’s music without permission.

“.@kanyewest ASKED PERMISSION TO SAMPLE A SECTION OF A 1983 LIVE PERFORMANCE OF “WAR PIG” FROM THE US FESTIVAL WITHOUT VOCALS & WAS REFUSED PERMISSION BECAUSE HE IS AN ANTISEMITE AND HAS CAUSED UNTOLD HEARTACHE TO MANY,” Osbourne fumed in all caps on X.

“HE WENT AHEAD AND USED THE SAMPLE ANYWAY AT HIS ALBUM LISTENING PARTY LAST NIGHT,” Osbourne continued. “I WANT NO ASSOCIATION WITH THIS MAN!”

Given Ozzy’s reputation, many felt his condemnation smacked of hypocrisy.

“Says the prince of darkness?????” exclaimed one user. “ohhh The Irony Is So RICH…”

“From the man who was blamed for the satanic panic,” replied another. “You should know better.”

“Bro you’re the prince of darkness,” a third reminded the rocker, “not the prince of morality.”

Others were enjoying the show.

And still others accused the Prince of Darkness of pandering.

To be fair, Veeps, the streaming service that broadcasted the listening party, appeared concerned with West’s propensity for blurting out offensive things.

During the live stream, West declared from the stage, “I’m still crazy, bipolar, antisemite. And I’m still the king.”

Veeps promptly pulled the plug, temporarily cutting the stream.

“Sue the f*** out of him,” one X user told Osbourne.
