Concern is growing for the mental well-being of Kanye West after the rapper went on his most unhinged rant yet on stage in Sacramento on the night of November 19.
Fans who turned out to see the rapper in concert Saturday night in Sacramento got an earful but, unfortunately, it was more rant than rhythm. West was more than an hour late for his show, sang a couple of songs, then went on a profane-laced tirade about Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Drake and Hillary Clinton, before dropping the mic and walking off stage.
The Life of Pablo star claimed to be risking his life by revealing that award shows are fixed in favour of Beyoncé, and that her husband, Jay Z, employs contract killers who West fears could be sent to kill him.
The sensational allegations are the latest in a long line of recent comments made about the couple by Kanye. Last month, he called out the pair for failing to provide support after his wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian, was held in a gunpoint robbery in Paris in October.
Addressing the crowd, Kanye made clear the apparent vital urgency of his comments, before first calling out Beyoncé by suggesting she colluded in award show corruption at the MTV VMA’s earlier this year.
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth – even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career,” he said. “Beyoncé, I was hurt! ‘Cause 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 tryin’ to diss Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great,” Kanye continued. “We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are – just to win. F*** winning! F*** looking cool! F*** looking cool! F*** being cool! F*** all that!” he continued.
The Georgia rapper then turned his attention to her husband with comments normally only found on online conspiracy forums.
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me! Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head.”
The latest rant comes days after Kanye cited further controversy by claiming he would have supported President-elect Donald Trump in the US election.
Fans however took to twitter to express their displeasure with the rapper, starting the #KanyeIsOverParty hashtag that trended viciously.
