Kanye West Sticks To Music-And-Rant Format At NYC Show

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Kanye West wants you to know that he’s no celebrity. The rapper/producer went on another epic rant last night at the Adult Swim Upfront party in NYC in which he blasted the paparazzi for hounding him down. “I ain’t no mother—-ing celebrity!” he shouted throughout the tirade.

“One thing about me, I’m the worst kinda … celebrity because all I do is make real music. All I do is sit in the studio and make real, real sh–. And that’s it,” he said, half-singing. “That’s mother—-ing it. That’s mother—-ing it. So I don’t want nobody trying to run up on me with no cameras, trying to sell pictures and sh– to magazines, asking me no dumbass questions, throwing me off of my focus and sh–,” he said. “Harassing you all mother—-ing day. I ain’t no mother—-ing celebrity.”

Ye continued, trying to show the audience how normal and human he was. “I ain’t no mother—ing celebrity. I ain’t running for office. I ain’t kissing nobody’s mother—-ing babies. I drop your baby and you sue me and sh–,” he shouted. “I’m trying to make some music that inspires people to be the best they can be. I don’t want nobody to ask nothing else of me. Don’t ask nothing else of me. Mother—-ers chasing you down, ’bout to make you crash and sh–, and all they want is one n—a to laugh and sh–,” West said. “Hell nah, I ain’t doing no mother—-ing ’SNL’ skits; this my goddamn life. This ain’t no mother—-ing joke. That’s it. Stop that sh– right there.”

Kanye’s literal run-in with the paparazzi recently may have sparked this rant. Ye and Kim Kardashian were confronted by photogs in LA and the producer ended up walking into a “Wrong Way” sign.

Speaking of his better half, ’Ye also reportedly performed “Awesome” (also dubbed “So Awesome” by some outlets) a song many say is dedicated to his baby mama Kim.

Billboard shared some lyrics of the track: “Cause baby you’re awesome / you don’t need to listen to your manager. I know you just be tired from running through my mind / can I come inside? / Cuz baby you’re awesome / And I’m also awesome.”
