Kanye West’s most recent concert was more political that it was musical, leading to fans booing and leaving the arena.
“This is my platform and I’m going to talk about the paradigm shift that’s happening right now,” Kanye started his rant that would last a whooping 40 minutes.
The rapper resumed his Saint Pablo tour in San Jose, CA, taking time out to talk about the past elections and praise president-elect Donald Trump. He revealed that he didn’t vote in the elections, and that even if he had, he’d have voted for Trump.

This was particularly surprising, considering that he and wife Kim Kardashian attended a Hillary Clinton fundraiser back in August. His Trump praise didn’t end there, adding the he loved his approach and that he was a “f**king genius.”
Kanye, who also revealed that his plans for presidency in 2020 was still alive, also told black people to stop focusing on racism.
“To black people, stop focusing on racism,” Ye said. “This world is racist, OK? It’s just a f*cking fact. We are a racist country.”
His rant (obviously) angered a lot of people, and it was met with boos. Some fans went to the point of throwing projectiles at the rapper, one of which was aYeezy shoe.
His next tour stop is at Sacramento, California on Saturday, and we honestly can’t wait to see what he’ll cook up this time.
