What would a Kanye West show be without a rant? After debuting his designer masks on Friday, Mr. West was back to his old self during his second of three shows at Revel in Atlantic City.
While performing “Clique,” he went on a tangent about the media (“They’ll try to tell you Kanye’s so crazy, so deranged… I ain’t crazy, I’m just not satisfied”), the criticism he received for his women’s fashion line, and being snubbed in major categories by the Grammys.
“I love Maroon 5, but when I lost for Best New Artist to Maroon 5… Or when Watch the Throne and Dark Fantasy, neither of them got nominated for Album of the Year, or when “Ni**as in Paris” didn’t get nominated for Record of the Year… So don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year, you nah mean?!” yelled Yeezy, who was nominated for six awards at the 2013 Grammys.
He also addressed his ill-fated tour with Lady Gaga, death threats from people on Twitter, and his plans for the future.
“I will die for what’s in my heart,” a passionate ‘Ye told the crowd.
Hear him speak from the heart. [RapUp]
