In this week’s edition of “Kanye Has A Hissy Fit,” concert goers during the Toronto leg of the “Yeezus Tour” got yet another earful of Kanye’s “stream of consciousness”.
All 27 minutes of it.
The highlight, or low-light, was Kanye telling the crowd that he’ll stop speaking negatively for “six months, at least.”
Kanye also went on to state how he’s excited about 2014. I guess planning a wedding can be exciting. “I decided to completely focus everything in 2014 on all the new ideas and all the creative outlets,” he said.
For your reading enjoyment, he’s his
rant rambling delirium entire “speech”:
You may think that, in some way, I’m angry. I’m not angry at all. I’m extremely, extremely happy. Extremely happy. See, my approach might be slightly different because the way I talk in interviews, people usually talk like that when they around their family. But see with me I believe that all of you all is my family so I can say anything. (You don’t know how I love it, you don’t know how i love to say fuck it). See the thing is, I’m talking to you all like, 10 years from now. 10 years from now just remember what I said (watch how it goes down). Because, with the media at least, you know what I’m saying? You’ve got some older writers that understand what real music is like and all that shit like, ‘Fuck it, that’s ‘Ye, let him do what he wants.’ Then you got some people who are disgruntled and shit, sad about life, and they want to take everything I’ve ever said that might not be the right thing that they all thought you wouldn’t be into and try to [damn] it. I think in the past three months, the shit I’ve been saying, you’re all going to look at it in 10 years and be like, ‘That was very inspirational, actually.’
Just to take those risks, you know what I’m saying? I had to scale back and I took those motherfucking risks. But for me the only risk in life is not taking risks. (This is your life) And all that’s going to happen is we are going to be extremely successful. Right now they’re talking shit and I know that’s extremely stressful, but what I need you to know right now…
Let me explain the media thing because I want to get this point across. What I’m saying is like, 10 years from now there’s going to be people writing reports that were at this concert right now and they’re going to know and feel the passion, the creativity, the surrealness that went into this.
You know, I’m actually cool with the paparazzi at this point. I have no rage for that shit. If it wasn’t the paparazzi, if it wasn’t for you, you know what I’m saying, they like…
(Someone yells ‘Take your mask off’)
Don’t scream at me when I’m talking to you or you can get right the fuck out of here. I’ll kick you out and the show will be over and you can be yelling ‘Take your mask off’ in the car. Only when I get sued and I’m trying to give a deposition then the motherfuckers try and talk shit to me while I’m talking. I’m speaking, don’t turn this way. Don’t talk while ‘Ye talking. I’m talking, you listen. Shut the fuck up.
Now you made me lose my motherfucking train of thought; throw my zen off. We’z about to have a miraculous, miracle, Deepak Chopra-level moment and your dumb ass gone fucked it up. But let me get back to my flowtation. (Let me get back to flow, let me get back to trying)
Because the only time you fail is when you fail to try. So I’m here to tell you all that by the time people get fresh, they get dope, they get cool they don’t want to expose their failures, their weaknesses to you all. What I’ve been doing over the past few months, I wanted to let you all know things that I’ve actually been failing at. Things that I’ve been trying to do so you all can understand that even in my position I fail to stop trying. I gotta keep pushing. I just opened up a motherfucking Mac, this ain’t nothing but a demo tapes to me though. So when I compare myself to whoever it don’t matter. If I say something that is completely stupid as fuck, it don’t matter. If I say something that’s completely inspired and you like it, take that with you, apply that to your life; If I say something that’s dumb as fuck, don’t apply it to your life, that’s not for you. You know what I’m saying: You leave that piece of clothing in the store. Only take what applies to you because I’m not you, I’m only me. But maybe sometimes I can say something that can inspire you in a way, that can make you feel like you can open a motherfucking mountain or something. Because it’s something that I feel (I feel so free. I feel free. I feel like there’s no one in control of me)
I was looking at that Barbara Walters shit and somebody that I like a lot, I’ve never met him but I like him a lot, is Tiger Woods and they show him saying, ‘You know, I just feel like I’m a role model.’ You see, that’s fucked up right there. I don’t feel like I’m a role model, I’m an artist. I’m expressing. If anything, if I can inspire other people to express themself, that’s great, and if they don’t that’s great too. I don’t give a fuck. I don’t feel no responsibility to nothing except to create what is on my mind and bringing it to you guys. And it’s funny that people are so fucking uptight that you can fuck with people just by saying the truth.
I’m just too lazy to lie. I’m like, ‘George Bush don’t care about black people. Alright, peace.’ I’m just too lazy. I’m extremely too lazy to lie because I’ve been working so hard on this shit. This shit took some work! (y’know what I’m saying?)
Now wait a second, for all the strangers that are like, ‘I wish Kanye would shut the fuck up’ let me ask you all a question: Do you all like it when I talk shit or would you rather me holding some product in my hand trying to sell that shit to you all? Because a corporation told me to sell this shit. Oh, you want me to be safe and shit? You all preferred I’d be scared and shit? Let me tell you what’s going to happen: Nothing but success. (Nothing but success because I’m stressed. I’m super, motherfucking blessed. I just want to be successful).
See there’s two type of people in the world: There’s dreamers and there’s haters. The only difference is one thing: Haters forgot about their dreams. Or better yet: Haters gave up on their dreams. (If you’re thinking of doing anything, get your hands up in the air. If you think you can do anything…)
So right now, as I’m reflective about 2013, I want to take this moment to…I really started thinking about everything I said and I just want to take this brief moment to take time in front of you all. I started thinking about everything I said and I just want to apologize FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
(I want to to apologize for absolutely nothing because at least I tried to do something. At least I’m me.)
So ah, when they try to make it like I’m crazy and shit, let the media tell it there would be nobody here right now and this shit sold out two nights in a row. So you know what that means for the future? I’m just gonna be crazier! (I’m sor…I almost said I’m sorry, I’m not gonna say I’m sorry. I’m just gonna be crazier. I’m just going to get scarier).
Let me give my definition of crazy: Webster’s tells is that the definition of crazy is to do the same thing expecting a different result, now my definition of crazy is to think of something that nobody would ever do and say it out loud or attempt to do it. And while people are looking at it and it’s not working people will say, ‘Oh, that’s crazy.’ But if you do something that no one would ever do and it works then that’s genius. (So I’m going to be crazier because crazy is the first step to genius) And for me, genius is ground zero. I’m bored otherwise. I’m yawning otherwise. If you’ve seen it before, I don’t want to be involved with it. I don’t give a fuck how much money it pays. I’m into designing and concept; I’m into designing the future, I’m into motivation, I’m into inspiration. (This is not interpretation, I’m into motivation, I’m into inspiration).
(And I’m just going to get crazier and crazier…)
I imagine the people in the audience standing there and attempting to make sense of it, but all they heard was the teacher from the Peanut cartoons:
And on that note, let me go and cleanse my palette and listen to the good ole days of “College Dropout”.
