Kanye ended his show in Sacramento after ranting about his tensions with both Beyonce and Jay Z, who won't call his line. He had performed just three songs.
Don't attend a "Saint Pablo" show if you're not ready for the infamous "Kanye rant." His last two shows have been characterized by his surprising confessionals much more so than any music. On Thursday (Nov. 17), Kanye revealed to his audience in San Jose, and thus the world, that he favored Trump in the recent election, praising different aspects of his campaign throughout the show. On Saturday night in Sacramento, Kanye's words, once again, provoked unrest in the stadium. He went on an impassioned rant that involved Drake, Frank Ocean, Beyonce, and Jay Z. He eventually got so heated that he suddenly ended the show. He had only performed three songs.
Though he performed two of those songs with an old friend from whom he's recently been estranged. A fresh-outta-rehab Kid Cudi appeared on stage to officially squash the beef (which was addressed by Cudi on Twitter and by Kanye in another "Saint Pablo" outburst) by sharing a sincere hug. Cudi also assisted Ye on "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1," their collab on The Life of Pablo, and he stayed on stage for "Waves."
Kanye called Cudi "the greatest of all of us" while venting about the shortcomings of radio, putting Drake and Frank Ocean into separate categories during his speech.
Elsewhere, he addressed how Beyonce had hurt him recently, especially after he "went down 7 years" after storming the stage when Taylor Swift beat her out for Best Female Video at the '09 VMAs. "I had heard you say you wouldn't perform unless you won video of the year over me and 'Hotline Bling'," Kanye revealed, referring to the victory of "Formation" at the 2016 VMAs, held in August.
Both Beyonce and Jay Z seem to be avoiding contact with Kanye. Last month, Ye told a crowd in Seattle that Jay Z and the beef between TIDAL and Apple prevented an official Watch The Throne remix of Drake's "Pop Style." He also lamented that Hov didn't come visit him after Kim had recently been held at gunpoint during a robbery in Paris. After speaking on Beyonce, Kanye moved on to her husband.
"Jay Z, call me bruh," he pleads. "You still ain't called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Pleased don't send 'em at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man."
Here's a video of Kanye ending the show. "Get ready to have a field day, press," he shouts to an enraged audience while making a quick exit off of his flying stage.
Kings Center DeMarcus "Boogie" Cousins was at the show, and he shared a reaction video after Kanye bounced on all of Sacramento.
