Ozzy Osbourne blasted Kanye West for using a sample of one of his Black Sabbath performances without his permission at an album listening party on Thursday, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Osbourne, 75, raged against the Chicago rapper on X, formerly Twitter, and said he refused to allow him to use his song because Ye is an "anti-semite and has caused untold heartache to many."

Osbourne's outrage at his War Pig sample being used at the listening party isn't the first time a fellow musician has refused to work with Ye due to his erratic behavior.

Rapper Nicki Minaj recently shut down Ye after he made a public appeal for her permission to use a previously recorded verse she did for his new album.

West posted a screenshot of a text he allegedly sent his one-time close friend, reading, "Hi it’s ye. May I call you about clearing new body on the new album"

Minaj recorded the song for Ye's 2018 album Yandhi, however, the track ended up not being included. It was then reworked for his 2019 album Jesus is King, but again, was not included in the final cut.

Sources claim the song never made it on Jesus is King due to "creative differences" between Minaj and Ye after edits had been made to the original recording.

Mere hours after Ye posted the text message screenshot, Minaj took to Instagram Live to discuss the track and explain why she refused permission.

"Now, regarding Kanye," Minaj began. "Child, that train has left the station. No disrespect in any way. I just put out a brand-new album."

"Why would I put out a song that has been out for 3 years? C’mon guys," the Pink Friday rapper added.
