Kanye West Calls Out Jay Z, Reunites With Kid Cudi at Saint Pablo Show
"Jay Z, call me bruh. You still ain't call me," said 'Ye. "Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don't send 'em at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man." Watch video of that above.
Earlier in the night, Kanye had brought Kid Cudi onstage to perform songs like "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" and "Waves" to the crowd's delight. Afterwards, they embraced each other. Watch the footage of that below.
His words for Hov were part of a long rant that included calling out Beyoncé and criticizing radio programmers for getting paid to play "the same bullshit over and over." "We love Drake, Drake is great, he's a great artist...but Frank Ocean is great too!" said Kanye. "But you know who the greatest of all of us? Who y'all think? Kid motherfucking Cudi. Radio, fuck you! Oh yeah, I'm on my Trump shit tonight!" Watch video footage of that below.
"Beyoncé, I was hurt! I went down seven years on behalf of your-" he continues, before getting something thrown at him onstage: "Ay nigga, don't throw no shit when I'm talking!" Then he went on to say that he heard Beyoncé wouldn't perform at a certain award show unless she won video of the year—over "Famous" and "Hotline Bling," no less.
According to reports, Kanye only performed a handful of songs, then launched into his extended rant and promptly ended the show. People on Twitter say he dissed Q-Tip and Lebron before ending the show as well.
Kanye hasn't been so popular lately after going on a rant about why he liked Donald Trump's campaign at a San Jose show this past week. It was odd to hear (though perhaps not surprising), especially because 'Ye had donated thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Convention in past years. See how fans reacted to that below.
If you missed it, XXL recently ran down a history of 'Ye and Jay's rocky relationship. Read up on that here.
