G.O.O.D. Music leader Kanye West recently went on an insane tirade during his performance at the Big Chill Festival in England this past weekend. During the rant, Yeezy compared himself to Adolf Hitler, paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse and even managed to involve the great Michael Jordan’s name.
“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m [expletive] insane, like I’m Hitler,” Kanye, 34, said on-stage before an audience of 40,000. “One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”
The speech prompted expected boo’s from large groups of fans in the crowd.
‘Ye also defended his portrayal of woman in the already infamous “Monster” music video, as in the video the lady-folk were shown hanging from the necks in somewhat of an act of cannibalism.
“Who saw the video before it got banned, before they took it down and before women’s groups starting saying that a person that lost the most important woman in his life is now against women in some way?” said West, who was referring to his late mother Donda West, who died following cosmetic surgery back in 2007.
Kanye also compared himself to Air Jordan. “Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It’s so much [expletive] going on in music right now and somebody has to make a [expletive] difference,” said the Jay-Z protege’.
West closed his set by paying tribute to the late U.K. singer Amy Winehouse. “I was at Paris fashion week a few years ago with my fiancée at that time,” he said. “We went to a house party and I met this beautiful, amazing, talented and funny woman. This is in memory of her.”
With that said, Yeezy performed a few moments of Winehouse’s songs “Tears Dry On Their Own” and “Back To Black.”
Kanye closed his show with the following comment, “Thank you for protecting your artists that are still here. This is for [Alexander] McQueen, for Amy, for Michael and for all the media, can you lighten up on all your artists that are still here?”
