Song titles aside, Kanye West wasn’t too happy with all of the lights over the weekend, after one fan’s use of a laser pointer prompted the rapper to stop in the middle of his set.
During a concert in Paris, as part of his and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne tour, Kanye put an abrupt stop to his set to call out a fan. Coincidentally, the incident occurred just as Kanye began to perform “Flashing Lights,” off his 2007 album, Graduation.
“Don’t fuck with the lasers back there,” West exclaimed. “Don’t fuck with me. You’re fucking with everybody’s show. Chill.”
That served as West’s initial warning. Seconds later, though, the music was cut, prompting boos from the Parisian audience. West then proceeded to give the fan a more thorough verbal thrashing.
“You see this guy right here with the green laser?” West said. “Don’t fuck up everybody’s show. It’s not a fucking game. We don’t fuck around with that. You’re gonna get fucked up and kicked out and all that shit, so chill the fuck out!”
The show proceeded as planned, without further incident from Kanye or the mentioned fan. ’Ye and Jay have 11 stops remaining of the European leg of their Watch The Throne tour. The duo is set to wrap up their critically acclaimed tour on June 22nd in Birmingham, England.
In related news, veteran producer Mike Dean recently revealed that he would be working on the sequel to Watch The Throne, though Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music Compilation will be arriving first.—Neil Martinez – Belkin
