Kanye West took to Twitter again just as the Grammys red carpet began.

After making a reference to being “$53 million dollars in personal debt,” the rapper voiced his opinions on money, fame, his new album The Life of Pablo and more wide-ranging topics on Monday.

“People wanted me to tweet again well here’s some tweets!” West, 38, warned his nearly 19 million followers.

The Yeezy Season 3 designer then called out specific media outlets including Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and the New York Times.

“Pitchfork, the album is a 30 out of 10,” West responded to the publication’s review of T.L.O.P., also adding, “To Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, New York Times, and any other white publication. Please do not comment on black music anymore.”

Fans quickly responded to the 21-time Grammy winner’s comments calling him a “racist” which prompted West to tweet: “I love love love white people but you don’t understand what it means to be the great grandson of ex slaves and make it this far.”

Adding: “The system is designed for colored people to fail and one of our only voices is music. One of our only ways out is music.”

West released his eighth studio album exclusively on and Tidal during his recent Saturday Night Live appearance as a musical guest .

On Monday, the father of two urged fans to get his album amid rumored financial struggles.

“My album will never never never be on Apple. And it will never be for sale… You can only get it on Tidal,” West wrote also tweeting, “Please to all my friends fans and music lovers. Sign up to Tidal now.”

A source tells PEOPLE that West and his wife Kim Kardashian West, 35, keep their finances separate, explaining that the rapper will “talk about ‘my money’ and ‘her money.’ “
