"This the original. Accept no imitations. You with the rap God right now."
Kanye West and his floating stage are nearing the end of their 29-city Saint Pablo tour. Last night in Edmonton, Alberta, Kanye stopped his set suddenly in the middle of "Freestyle #4" to an issue an ultimatum.
“This the original," he said to the crowd. "Accept no imitations. You with the rap God right now. Niggas be copying my shit, bro. Stealing our shit, stealing our stages. Copying our shit one to one.”
It is unclear exactly to whom Kanye is referring. Perhaps he meant the statement as a preemptive warning. In any case, watch his speech below.
