Leave it to Mr. West to have old rants leak. In 2009, Yeezy famously interrupted Taylor Swift’s award acceptance speech at the VMAs. Well, take a trip back in time and check out more of Yeezy’s thoughts on everything from Pink to Beyonce and James Brown. Peep a transcript of Kanye’s rant below:
“I’d rather just let the [inaudible] speak for itself. You know, it’s like, I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn’t say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I’ve, like, defended myself… [Tape break] I’m pushing the envelope! I wrote my [expletive] ‘Run This Town’ verse for a [expletive] month! When I heard Eminem’s verse on the Drake [expletive], I went back and rewrote my [expletive] for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I [expletive] care! You know what I’m saying? And that’s what I’m saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I’m alive! And if I’m alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I’m alive, you gon’ have to deal with it,” West reportedly says.
“What the [expletive] was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the [expletive] Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform “Heartless.” “Heartless” is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don’t know that Pink song! But I noticed that she’s pink!” he adds later.
