Kanye West Goes Off On Beyoncé & Jay Z During Crazy Rant [VIDEO]
Kanye West went off on one of his strange rants during his show in Sacramento, where he put Beyonce and Jay Z on blast. West's fans that paid for tickets to his concert were not pleased as he carried on with his little speech for almost 20 minutes, before walking off stage after 3 songs.
West had a few things that he needed to get off his chest. The rapper called out Beyonce before referencing Jay Z's alleged "killers." The rapper ended the brief performance with a microphone drop after three songs, leaving fans very upset.
The show in Sacramento came two nights after West shocked his audience by announcing at a show in San Jose, Calif., that he had not voted but he would have voted for Trump.
Kanye then focused on the music business and wondered why Drake was promoted but not Frank Ocean. The rapper then said things are simply political when it comes to awards shows.
West then took aim at Jay and Beyonce, stating, "Beyonce, 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. We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playin’ the politics too much and forgettin’ who we are—just to win. Fu*k winning! Fu*k lookin’ cool."
He continued, "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. 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. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!"

West's fans were disappointed and turned to social media to demand refunds. On Sunday, the Golden 1 Center announced that ticketholders would be paid back in full, including Ticketmaster fees.
Kanye obviously doesn't care that his comments were going to be controversial. He said, "I’m not always going to say things the perfect way, the right way,” he said. “But I’m going to say how I feel.” He added, “Get ready to have a field day, press. Get ready, get ready. Because the show’s over."
