Attendees at the Saint Pablo Tour concert in Sacramento, California were treated to a full-blown regarding Kanye West's speech. The musician says that people feel like they lost (due to the election, among other issues) because Facebook and Google "lied to you." He even calls out Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg by name around the 12-minute mark. Supposedly, the internet mogul reneged on a promise that he "would help" Kanye and then decided to "look for aliens."
Who Is Kanye West?
Kanye Omari West, most commonly known as Kanye West, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer, and entrepreneur. Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West first became known as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing hit singles for artists such as Jay Z and Alicia Keys.
West's outspoken views and life outside of music have received significant mainstream attention. He has been a frequent source of controversy for his conduct. His more scrutinized comments include his off-script denunciation of President George W. Bush during a live 2005 television broadcast nd his interruption of singer Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
'Facebook And Google Lied To You' Said Kanye West
A lot of people here tonight felt like they lost. You know why? Because y’all been lied to. Google lied to you. Facebook lied to you. Radio lied to you.
This is just few lines from what Kanye West said in a Sacramento, California Concert. West also tells people to only put their iPhones in the air, since he wants "only originals." Guess we know where he stands on smartphones, then (although he recently got rid of his phone to focus on creativity), as reported by Engadget.
According to Chicago Tribune, West also mentioned his rants about Beyoncé, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV on his Saint Pablo Tour. Captured on video by concert-goers, West in an over 10-minute tirade told the audience he was on his "Trump (expletive) tonight."
