Kanye West gets BOOED by the crowd at Wireless Festival after he launches into '20-minute rant' mid-performance.
Kanye West made his way overseas Friday night and closed out the first day of the Wireless Festival in London. As usual, Kanye ripped the stage with performances of “Mercy”, “All Of The Lights”, “Touch The Sky”, “Blood On The Leaves”, & others, but not before taking a 20-minute break in the middle of his set to get a few things off his chest. However the crowd wasn’t feeling it this time around and not only booed Yeezy, but some just straight up left.
According to The Mirror, Kanye spent more time "preaching" than actually performing songs from his catalog during his set, which ultimately led to many fans booing him and leaving the show early. Like we've heard in the past, Kanye vents about the fashion industry not accepting him.
"I'm not going to mention any names but... Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me 'cos I'm a black man making music."
A festival goer told the The Daily Mail, "Kanye was laying into the 'machine' and ranting about the public's perception of him. Hundreds of people left the park early because they were so bored of his long rant."
This really shouldn't come as a shock to many, but for a couple hundred it did, and they weren’t having it. Many other fans took their frustrations to twitter & vine and vented about Kanye’s set.
Check out the footage that’s surfaced so far.
