Kanye West is turning to another social media platform.
The rapper, whose Instagram account was recently restricted and Twitter page was temporarily locked over posts accused of antisemitism, has agreed to obtain the conservative platform Parler, the company announced Monday.
“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves,” West said.
The principle agreement for West, who uses the stage name Ye, to acquire Parler is expected to close by the end of the year, according to the announcement. It doesn’t specify how much West, 45, is paying for the platform.
“This deal will change the world, and change the way the world thinks about free speech,” said George Farmer, the CEO of Parlement Technologies.
“Ye is making a groundbreaking move into the free speech media space and will never have to fear being removed from social media again. Once again, Ye proves that he is one step ahead of the legacy media narrative. Parlement will be honored to help him achieve his goals.”
