Kanye West, American rapper has unleashed a flurry of suppressed resentment towards his former collaborator, Jay Z, and Beyonce, his wife.
West accused Beyonce of refusing to perform at the MTV VMAs if she didn’t win the ‘Best Video’ award, a category he was always nominated in.
The husband of reality TV star Kim Kardashian also urged Jay Z to give him a call and speak to him “like a man”.
The incident played out during the Sacramento, California leg of his U.S. tour on Saturday night.
He said: “Beyonce, I was hurt because I heard you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and over Hotline Bling. In my opinion – now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are – just to win.
“I’ve been sent here to give ya’ll my truth, even at the risk of my own life. At the risk of my own success. I’ll give ya’ll the truth. Jay-Z call me bro, you still ain’t called me … Jay Z, I know you got killas. Please don’t send them at my head. Talk to me like a man.”
