Watch Kanye West Call Out Beyonce and Jay Z during a tour stop in Sacramento Saturday night. West’s rant traveled from complaining about radio playlists to the most recent MTV Video Music Awards, where Beyoncé delivered a medley of Lemonade tracks, a performance that West said was presented on one condition:
“Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,'” West said. “Now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win. Fuck winning, fuck looking cool. Fuck looking cool. Fuck being cool. Fuck all that, bruh.”
Kanye added of his Watch the Throne partner Jay Z,
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth even at the risk of my own life, my own success, my own career. Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man.”
