But the uplifting energy quickly shifted when West began to rant about other artists.
“Beyoncé, I was hurt. 'Cause I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling,'" West said, referencing this year's MTV Video Music Awards. "Now don't go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F**k winning. F**k looking cool. F**k being cool."
The "Famous" rapper went on to take a jab at Beyoncé's husband and his longtime pal, Jay Z, saying, '"ay Z, call me bruh. You still ain't called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don't send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man."
West finally ended his rant by yelling, “Right now, press, get ready to write your passive aggressive, LeBron James racist comments, Season 4 racist comments. Get ready to have a field day, press, get ready, get ready, because the show’s over.”
He then dropped the mic and fled off the stage as the crowd loudly booed and protested. Neither West nor the Golden 1 Center venue has announced whether fans will be given a refund for the show, but many were audibly outraged, with many taking to Twitter to express their anger.
I'm so sad. My brother was so excited to see @kanyewest tonight and he was met with disappointment .FU KANYE! What a waste of money??
This certainly isn't the first controversial show West has had lately. Earlier this week the rapper upset many when he declared that though he didn't vote in the presidential election, he would have voted for Donald Trump.
He also declared, "Black people, stop focusing on racism," and confirmed that he still plans to run for president in 2020.
