MISSI.jpgYouTube is no longer the place to go if you feel like having a listen to Warner Music Group artists. Following recent failed negotiations with Google, the owners of YouTube, the music conglomerate pulled all their videos from the popular video sharing website.

Artists like, Diddy, Missy Elliot, and Lupe Fiasco have been yanked; and their videos taken off YouTube makes up a reported 20 percent of the market.

In a statement, Warner Music said they are working to find a resolution with YouTube that would help get their artists’ content back on the site. The label said, "Until then, we simply cannot accept terms that fail to appropriately and fairly compensate recording artists, songwriters, labels and publishers for the value they provide."

MTV and MySpace still carry Warner Music Group videos.
