Kanye West treated fans at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn to a classic Yeezy rant on Wednesday night, and it’s going to take us a minute to unravel all the things he’s upset about this time. The clearest target, as far as we can tell, is Bruno Mars, or, more specifically, MTV for giving Bruno Mars “all the motherf–king awards and sh–” at the VMAs this year. “Then can’t no motherf–king networks try to gas everybody up so they can sell some product with the prettiest motherf–ker out,” he said. (As MTV just pointed out, Mars won exactly two awards, Best Male Video for “Locked Out of Heaven” and Best Choreography for “Treasure.) Who else is he mad at?
That’s as much as we could decipher so far. Maybe we’ll listen to the 10-plus-minute diatribe a few more times to catch the rest. Our favorite quote so far? “I’m not going to be Tesla in my basement.” Yeezy is the best when he makes odd historical references to downtrodden inventors.
