You Can Now Listen to Kanye West’s SNL Meltdown In Its Full Audio Glory

From the Set: Melissa McCarthy and Kanye West

In my estimation, Kanye West has been on about 3,487 rants in the past few weeks. Most of them on Twitter, and all of them crazier than the next. One of the biggest ones occurred when he performed on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. It was first reported by Page Six that Kanye threatened to walk off the show after a stage he wanted was changed without his consent. A source told Page Six “It was like he was having an emotional breakdown. He was calling the crew ‘white m———–s’ and then said he was going to walk out. The only thing that stopped him from actually leaving right then was that nobody had access to the freight elevator. If he’d walked out on the live show, it would have been a disaster. And the whole meltdown was just because of the floor.” He was eventually coaxed back by Lorne Micheals and performed two songs from new album The Life of Pablo.

Now, Page Six has the recording of the alleged rant and, you guessed it, it's completely insane. Kanye goes off in his typical fashion comparing himself to both Apostle Paul and Pablo Escobar, dropping a couple “bros” and even getting in another Taylor Swift dig. Here's the full rant:

Look at that sh*t. They took my f**kin’ stage off of SNL without asking me. Now I’m bummed. That and Taylor Swift, fake ass. Now I ain’t gonna do this, we’re breaking the mother f**king internet. I went through six years of this f**king sh*t. Let’s get to it, bro. Let’s get to it, bro! Are they f**king crazy? Bro! By 50% — Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul, Picasso, f**king Picasso and Escobar — by 50% more influential than any other human being. Don’t f**k with me. Don’t f**k with me! Don’t f**k with me! By 50%, dead or alive. By 50% for the next thousand years. Stanley Kubrick, Ye.

Maybe deep down Kanye just wants Taylor to have inspirational Grammy speech material until the end of time. I really think that might be the reason behind all of this.
