Newlywed Kanye West is back to working now that his lavish wedding to Kim Kardashian has passed, but it’s apparent his usual quirks that are adored by his fans may not work in all of his performances.
Kanye replaced Drake at the Wireless Festival, and numerous concertgoers took to social media to complain about the rapper’s 20 minute rant which took place in the middle of the performance.
While it’s not unusual for Kanye to rant during his shows about topics such as classism and the negativity he faces as a celebrity, the crowd was reportedly so annoyed by how long the rant was that they actually began to boo the rapper and a lot of folks actually left the show during the rant.
Daily Mail reports:
Wearing a bejewelled mask over his face, Kanye, 37, told the audience: ‘I’m not going to mention any names but… Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don’t discriminate against me ‘cos I’m a black man making music.
‘F**k saving face and what it’s supposed to mean, it’s about living my dream.’
And it would seem the move didn’t go down too well with the crowd, with audience members reportedly deserting the al fresco gig in droves.
One festival-goer told MailOnline: ‘He was laying into the ‘machine’ and ranting about the public’s perception of him. Hundreds of people left the park early because they were so bored of his long rant.
Check out a small snippet of Kanye’s rant below:
I think it’s fine for him to rant but he shouldn’t do it for 20 mins. People are there for the music before anything else. He has to understand that.
It’s crazy to see him spiral out of control like this.
I miss the old Ye.
I S S U E S!
He’s angry about the dumbest things.
See this is why I wouldn’t pay a penny to see Kanye. How about rant on a blog instead of during a concert for which people have paid their hard earned money to see you perform not complain and rant idiot smh.
I knew he had a huge ego, but damn! Ain’t nobody gonna wait through 20 minutes of this idiot power-tripping.
20 minutes? The f-ck? Why is he so angry?
He’s mad that he talked about marrying Kim so much, and for so long, he finally had to follow through. That sh-t would make anyone ragey, and stabby!
I think the whole ranting thing is getting old. Kanye needs to get back to the music. The ranting and attention whoring is hurting his career.
So is he trying to hurt his legacy or nah???
Lol @ people paying to see this nut perform.
