In the middle of performing “Touch The Sky” at his concert Thursday night at Penn State, the notoriously outspoken rapper went into this weird rant about radio DJs, specifically calling out Sirius XM’s Sway Calloway and Charlamagne Tha God from Power 105’s “Breakfast Club.”
Via Rolling Stone:
“Stop that shit!” yelled West, who looked to be wearing a denim kilt, as he was finishing the Late Registration track “Touch the Sky.”
“If I go to a radio interview, shut the fuck up!” he shrieked. He complained about Charlamagne “showing a picture of me walking with my girlfriend.” He explained that he works hard in the studio every night until 5 a.m. “This ain’t no joke,” he said.
“We ain’t think about nobody. We think about Shakespeare. We think about Beethoven. What can we make for y’all? What can y’all play on your way to school or on y’all way to work? What can we make to make y’all feel better?”
The rapper then led the audience through an a capella recital of the Graduation track “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.”
“You’re trying to make a joke out of what we do?” West says. “Shut the fuck up! What the fuck you do?” Then he said that last question again in a slower, calmer way.
“Everybody writing all shit to fucking diss me and talk shit, what the fuck did you do? Charlamagne, Sway, what the fuck you did? Fuck you did?”
He paced around the stage like an angry dog. “Fuck these niggas’ names is? I am Yeezus!” And a “Yeezus” chant broke out in the audience. West ended his rant by putting his hand up “like Michael Jackson,” he said, and again yelling “Shut the fuck up!”
“Now that was a brief intermission,” he said. “We can continue with the show.”
