Kanye has made headlines again and unsurprisingly has unleashed his very vocal Twitter rants on his account. This time it was between him and rapper Wiz Khalifa in regards to West’s new album name, Waves. There was also a misunderstanding as to what Khalifa meant when he wrote “Hit this kk and become yourself”. While West thought he was talking about Kim Kardashian, Khalifa corrected him and explained he was talking about customized strain of weed. Here are a few other rants West is known for.
In 2005 at a live NBC fundraising event for Hurricane Katrina victims, Kanye West decides to go a little off script. West rants about how the African American victims were portrayed and goes on to say, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” after which the producer quickly moved on to the next presenter. He later apologized for his remarks.
2009 was the year that Taylor Swift won the Best Female Video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards for her song “You Belong to Me”. While she was just starting her speech West came on stage, took the mic from her and said “Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time”. Later that night Beyonce won “Best Video of the Year”.
2013 included the rant against Jimmy Kimmel. Earlier Kimmel made a spoof about Kanye’s BBC interview to which West was not impressed. He took to Twitter and ranted to Kimmel of how “Sarah Silverman is a thousand times funnier than you and the whole world knows it” along with numerous other tweets and photos against Kimmel.
In 2015 Taylor Swift presented the Michale Video Vanguard Award to Kanye West at the VMA’s. He thanked her graciously and then went on to rant about how he was a misunderstood figure and continued on in a direction that nobody quite knew where it was going. Somewhere in the speech he said he was going to run for president.
