Kanye West Rants About Beyoncé And Jay Z, Ends Show Early

After an endorsement of Donald Trump on stage this week, Kanye West continued to upset fans on Saturday night by ending a show after only performing three songs.

The show, which was in Sacramento, Calif. as part of his extended Saint Pablo Tour, seemed to be off to a good start. He welcomed his friend and frequent collaborator Kid Cudi as a surprise guest early in his set, and hugged him on stage. The two had a public spat earlier this year, but West proclaimed his support for Cudi when Cudi released a letter admitting that he was getting professional help for suicidal thoughts.

But after his embrace with Cudi, West went on one of his signature rants where he seemed to take shots at Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Hillary Clinton.

“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,’” he said about Bey.

“Now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great,” he continued. “We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are – just to win. Fuck winning, fuck looking cool.”

He added a message to his mentor and Watch The Throne collaborator Jay Z, telling him to call him “like a man.”

“I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head,” Kanye said.

He also took a shot at presidential nominee Clinton, days after telling concertgoers that he would have voted for Donald Trump had he participated in the election.

“This Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant [thing] happening,” he said. “If your old ass keeps following old models, you’ll be Hillary Clinton.”

According to New York Daily News, he also blasted radio programmers for not supporting certain artists on the air.

“Drake is great, he’s a great artist, but Frank Ocean is great, too,” he said. “But you know who the greatest of all of us? Kid Cudi.”

After the rant, which some attendees said lasted between 15 and 30 minutes, he abruptly ended the show.

Sacramento concert attendees, who paid as much as $250 for tickets, let their dissent be known. The chanted “fuck you Kanye,” and took their complaints to social media.

The Golden 1 Center Twitter account encouraged fans to get home safely. “More information will follow,” the tweet added.
