Glover went on to say that he wants another company—“Def Jam, Atlantic, whatever”—to buy him out of his contract, noting that Glassnote must not care about him because he’s “not loud, or outrageous, or a white girl with a big ass.” (Not that most of Glassnote’s other acts—Mumford & Sons, Chvrches, Little Green Cars, Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, etc.—are any of those things either.) Glover also maintains that the label has been lying to him, claiming that after he said, “I know how the Internet works,” to his label, they “laughed on the phone and said, ‘oh really?’”
I'd be pissed too if I was promised things and those promises weren't kept, everyone knows Donald has a vision and unless it's fulfilled the exact way he pictures it things won't go well, I highly doubt this is the first time he's had problems with the label. The guy could do it all on his own and I don't know why he doesn't, him signing that contract in the first place confused the hell out of me.
I think parts of that article made assumptions about his tweets, but I'm also probably a bit biased- love most of what Glover does, and Because the Internet was fantastic. I don't know the situation first-hand, so I'm not going to make any judgments, aside from that video being some Aphex Twin shit.
