Sacramento, CA, United States (4E) – Kanye West’s latest concert lasted only for a few minutes after the rapper performed two songs then went on to rant about politics, Beyonce, Jay Z, LeBron James, Mark Zuckerberg , Google, and president-elect Donald Trump.
The concert was in Los Angeles on Saturday evening. His rant reportedly lasted for 17 minutes and in the videos that have been captured by fans, which have circulated on social media, many of them are yelling expletives against the rapper and expressed their disappointment.
A part of West’s rant says: “It’s a new world, Hillary Clinton, it’s a new world, Feelings matter. Because guess what? Everybody in Middle America felt a way and they showed you how they felt.” He added, “A lot of people here tonight felt like they lost. You know why? Because y’all been lied to. Google lied to you. Facebook lied to you. Radio lied to you.” His comments about the latest election comes after he told fans days ago at another concert that he did not vote this year but would have voted for Trump.
Aside from Clinton and Trump, West talked about outgoing president Barack Obama. He said that Obama could not make America great again because he could not be him to be who he was. He pointed out that black men have been slaves all this time and that was what happened to Obama despite him being president for two terms. West said that Obama had to be perfect and being perfect does not always bring about change.
He then went on to talk about the music industry. West said that why are songs by Drake being promoted and not those made by Frank Ocean. West proceeded to slam Beyonce. He said that he was hurt because he heard that the mother-of-one would not perform unless she won the Video of the Year award over his song and over Drake’s “Hotline Bling.”
West also said, “Sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win. I’ve been sitting 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.”
Ticketmaster announced on Sunday that they will be providing a full refund to those who bought tickets via their network. The Golden 1 Center, where the concert took place, has a 17,500 capacity. Tickets to West's other shows in California range in price from $26 to $135.
