Another day, another dollar, another Kanye West rant fueled by who knows what.
On Saturday evening, Kanye’s Saint Pablo tour set up shop in Sacramento, and shortly after performing his controversial single “Famous,” ‘Ye went on one of his signature, grandiose
rants streams of consciousness, which went on for nearly 15 minutes.
Aside from praising KiD CuDi again and calling him “the greatest of all of us” (which follows his outburst in September where he declared that he birthed the Lonely Stoner), Kanye acknowledged “I’m on my Trump shit tonight” before vehemently going after radio.
Radio, fuck you. Yeah, I’m taking his lead. I’mma just say how I say, be ‘Ye, and win. I’mma take his lead. Radio, fuck you! Radio, fuck you! Wait a second. Eh, is it, “Radio, fuck you? That’s what you’re saying?” Exactly.
He also called out radio’s unfavorable practice of playing the same songs over and over, before taking a shot at MTV. Again.
Khaled and Drake and radio and Doc and [Real] 92.3 and everybody. Is it just me or did you hear that song so many times “you say you wanna play for free.” Aye, aye. You know what it is, though? Because aye, I love Drake. I love Khaled. But they set that song up, bro. And let me tell you something: MTV, fuck you! Once again, as always. I’m on my Trump shit tonight
No one was safe from ‘Ye’s vitriolic level tirade, even going after big brother and sister JAY Z and Beyoncé, respectively.
So, when I talk about MTV, let me explain something. I was hurt. Beyoncé, I was hurt because I wanted to present a video called “Fade” and I don’t expect MTV to help me. Mr. West, I don’t respect you. I will let you know that Beyoncé is winning the video tonight for “Formation” over “Hotline Bling” and “Famous.” They told me beforehand so I wouldn’t run on stage. Hey, bruh, y’all ain’t gotta fuck with me, but you know I got the vision and you know I’mma gonna keep it real with you. Beyoncé, I was hurt.
Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over “Hotline Bling.” In my opinion—now, don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal.
Jay Z, call me, bruh. You still ain’t calling me. Jay Z, call me. Aye, bruh, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man. I’m not trying to be the man. I just am a man, the same as anybody here. I ain’t above, below none of y’all. We all equal. We all equal. This is the vibes, bro. This is the future. This is the way of thinking to make America great again. Ha! You didn’t like that! Guess what? Y’all need the vibes. I was hurt. Feelings matter, bro. The way motherfuckers put money up so high, popularity, radio spins. Feelings matter, bro. Feelings matter, bro.
The rest of the rant ended with Kanye continuing to urge Mark Zuckerberg to call him, declaring he and CuDi are aliens, and sending a quick shot at Q-Tip.
Q-Tip, I love you, bro. Don’t tell me how to be me, though. I love you. The Tribe album is dope. I love you. Don’t tell me how to be me, though. I’ve been me. I am me.
And what better way to end another epic rant then by cutting your concert short, after performing just three songs? Yep, that’s exactly what happened, because Kanye F*cking West, Presidential-hopeful for 2020, right?
