Yeezy has had some of the most outrageous moments any rapper can have, much too many to include all in this list. He is clearly an entertainer in more than one way.
Yeezy has had some of the most outrageous moments any rapper can have, much too many to include all in this list. He is clearly an entertainer in more than one way. Here are just five of the craziest moments Kanye West has given us.
“Don’t take another f***ing photo man!”
Things got a little bit heated when our good friend Kanye hit his head on a signpost whilst trying to avoid paparazzi. Yeezy looked to have control over his temper, appearing calm despite being hounded by a group of photographers. This didn’t take long to change. The rap mogul soon after exploded into an angry and foul-mouthed attack on an unlucky photographer, demanding he stops taking photos.
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people”
Kanye does love a rant here and there. Unfortunately this time he didn’t have enough time to go on about how we are all slaves of society. In a live TV appeal following Hurricane Katrina, Mr West shocked the world with an audacious statement to say the least. None of us were prepared for the rapper to claim that George Bush doesn’t care about the African-Americans who suffered from the effects of the hurricane.
Perhaps a tad too far Kanye?
“Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time!”
A moment that will go down in music history—Taylor Swift’s night at the VMA’s quickly took a turn for the worse when Kanye took to the stage to interrupt her receiving her ‘best video’ award. The rapper snatched the microphone from Taylor Swift mid-speech and told everyone that Beyoncé should have won the award. It was a truly unforgettable moment, once again highlighting the unpredictable nature of Kanye.
Rapper 50 Cent later said of the incident: “I wish he would come and take my award for me, so I can black his eye in front of everybody.”
“You ain’t got the answers Sway!”
Kanye’s short fuse was exposed again as the rapper appeared on Sway Calloway’s radio show in the US to discuss his fashion line. When questioned about why he has had limited success with his fashion line, Yeezy quickly broke out into an insane rant, yelling multiple times: “You ain’t got the answers Sway!” Kanye went on to shout some more about how he has spent $13 million trying to empower himself.
West never has backed down from a challenge—this time was no different. While performing at one of his concerts, Kanye was repeatedly yelled at by a woman in the crowd who insisted that he take off a mask he was wearing as part of his performance. Kanye didn’t take too kindly to this and had her thrown out of the concert. “Don’t f***ing heckle me,” he told the woman. “I’m Kanye-mother-f***ing-West!”
Kanye West’s antics have been making headlines for years now. Looking back on his many crazy moments, the father of one may look into cooling his erratic behaviour, but with his ego growing by the minute, this may not be the case.
