Dauntless rapper, Kanye West launched into an expletive-ridden rant just before he was due to appear on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.
A leaked audio clip obtained by Page Six shows that the rapper was furious after his set was altered at the last minute.
He lashed out at Taylor Swift and also said he’s more influential than Stanley Kubrick and Picasso and any other human being by 50 percent.
“Look at that s**t, they took my f**king stage off of SNL without asking. Now I’m bummed,”That and Taylor Swift — fake a**.“Now if I’m going to do this, we’re breaking the motherf**king internet.
I went through six years of this f**king s**t.“Let’s get to it, bro! “Are they f—–g crazy? Whoa by 50 percent [I am more influential than] Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, f—–g Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent more influential than any other human being. Don’t f–k with me. Don’t f–k with me. Don’t f–k with me. By 50 percent dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.”
Explaining what was behind the rapper’s rant, a source told Entertainment Tonight:
This is the seventh time Kanye West has appeared on SNL, they know he is very particular.
“The SNL lighting director/designer, on his own, decided to dismantle half of Kanye’s set because he didn’t like it. The set was dismantled in a way it couldn’t be put back together on time. Kanye found out 30 minutes before showtime that this had happened.”
“Kanye was very upset about the situation, and did threaten to walk off the show,” they added.
