Kanye West seems to have graduated from self-proclaimed genius to self-proclaimed god.
As he has been known to do, the megalomaniacal rapper went off an all-out rant while onstage at Madison Square Garden where he was performing as part of his Yeezus tour.
This time, it was former Dior designer and current creative director for Saint Laurent, Hedi Slimane, that bore the brunt of the rant. While in the middle of his show, Kanye complained that Hedi did not treat him like a “god.”
“He was once a friend of mine, in the time of Christian Dior,” Kanye said onstage. “And I used to wear his tight-ass jeans when I was on tour and get called names for it… And Hedi Slimane was a god who didn’t serve no bulls--t… But it takes a god to recognize another god. So when he told me you can come to my show, but you can’t come to see Phoebe [Philo] and you can’t come to see Riccardo [Tisci], that was odd. He tried to control me! He tried to tell me where I could go!”
Kanye didn’t stop with the fashion designer feud, either. Next up, Kanye blasted Nike, blaming the company for the delay of the latest Air Yeezy II.
“They try to act like people ain’t line up for the Yeezys,” the rapper said. “[Nike CEO] Mark Parker tried to son me. Yes. Son me because I am the sun and I will shine bright. And when I don’t have as much money as a billionaire and when I don’t have the factories that, that dude has over there, what I do have is my voice. Ain’t no corporation that can take me away from my voice and I’m going to scream at the top of my motherf--king mountain as loud as I want. Anything I want. Whenever I want. Is that crazy?”
