Kanye West will no longer release music on CD.

The 38-year-old rapper is finished with compact discs and says the artwork for his latest album ‘The Life of Pablo’ is intended to be an “open casket” for the format.

From now on, Kanye will only be streaming his new songs.

He posted on Twitter: “Uuuuum … hi everybody! … I was thinking about not making CDs ever again … Only streaming … the Yeezus album packaging was an open casket to CDs r.i.p … uuuuuuum, so there it is … No more CDs from me (sic)”

The ‘All Day’ rapper’s latest musings have brought into question as to whether ‘The Life of Pablo’ will ever get a physical release.

The 18-track LP is currently only officially available through Jay Z’s streaming service Tidal, and Kanye has stated that the album will never be available via Apple Music.

After his no more CDs vow, the ‘Ultralight Beam’ rapper went on to promote “positives vibes” and bemoaned the fact that so many people want to hate him.

In a series of tweets, he wrote: “Question… Why do people not want me to be me? … I want people to be the best version of themselves and I will be the best version of me … Growing and learning but not being told to stop …not being stunted … please avoid trying to talk me out of being me in the future … ###hashtag all positive vibes (sic)”
