The Ranting Rapper Returns!! Kanye West Slings Racist Accusations At Nike, Gucci & Louis Vuitton While Filling In For Drake!

kanye west wireless festival racist fashion rant

Well, we can't say we're surprised.

As we mentioned earlier, Drake has been sicky-poo so he had to bail on London’s Wireless Festival over the weekend. But luckily for Kanye West fans (and unluckily for Nike, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton), Yeezus was there to swoop in and take his place!

During 'Ye's performance of Runaway, however, the rapper was in a ranting mood and took a break from his song to absolutely rail on the fashion industry for 15 mins — which in turn caused him to be booed. And he had some very specific accusations for the aforementioned fashion labels!

Here's a brief segment of his rant:

“I’m not going to diss Nike or anything, but don’t discriminate against me. They tell me, ‘Sit in the front row. Wear this jacket I made for you and do as you’re told.’ I’m not dissing Louis Vuitton, I’m not dissing the Gucci group. I’m just saying, don’t discriminate against me because I’m a black man, or because I’m a celebrity, to determine that I can’t create…

You know damn well no black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing. They let Pharrell make those [Louis Vuitton] glasses, and we liked ’em, right? They let me make those [Louis Vuitton] shoes and we liked ’em, right? They said, ‘No, no, no n***a. Not no more. That’s too much. Stay in your place. Stand in front of that show and wear this jacket I made you. Stay in your place! Do what you’re paid to do! Don’t embarrass yourself trying to chase your dreams. Save face.

That’s why I got this f***ing mask on. Cause I ain’t worried about saving face. F**k my face! That sounded wrong. Pause. They finally got a headline. But f**k whatever my face is supposed to mean and f**k whatever the name Kanye is supposed to mean, it’s about my dreams!

It’s about anybody’s dreams. It’s about creating. It’s not about the idea about being a f**king celebrity, it’s not about the idea of being a black man trying to do fashion and sh*t…"

Uhhh….

Guess that explains those fancy Maison Martin Margiela masks he wears all the time!

And while we understand that Kanye is mad at Nike for not partnering with him, he can't exactly accuse them of discriminating against African American celebrities since Drake is designing for them!

Then when it comes to Gucci, they basically don't let any celebs design for them no matter what their skin color.

But Louis Vuitton does! And as Kanye mentioned, he's designed for them in the past — which is more than a lot of celebrities can say!

Clearly it wasn't enough though.

Thoughts!?

    Those companies don't want to work with you Mr West. It has nothing to do with the color of your skin. It has nothing to do with you being a celebrity, or a rapper, or the fact that you married a porn star.

    The fact is, you are mentally unstable. You go off on tangents, and insult people without a thought of what those words do.

    Why would a company want to work with someone who may get sand in his vagina, stop a show midsong, and rant about how bad a company is?

    Get real. You are corporate kryptonite. Calm your f'n tits down and act like a normal human being….and you know what is going to happen?? People will start treating you like a normal human being…and then companies will want to work with you

    But…since you are obviously mentally unstable…all this information will just go in one ear and out the other.

    So continue to kill your career. And in 5 years, when you are broke, and your music is a joke…Mrs Kardashian will trade you in for someone else that can benefit her career.

    So you got that going for you…which is nice

    I fear the day when Kanye will complain of the fact that hospitals does not allow to celebrities of practicing surgery operations. And that one day, I learn the political correctness has eventually give way to these senseless requests. And the day when I would need an operation, I am informed Kanye West will perform surgery on my child…

    And they paid him for that? Don't mix the mediums up. Perform at performances, rant in interviews or meetings or it'll be a short ride.

    Why is this dude always so negative about being black. If you're so damn proud of it than talk about some positivity. He's just as bad as the people he considers racist. He doesn't move anyone forward if anything he sets everything back 50 yrs…

    Re: Jan – True dat. I guess this way it's always somebody else's fault when things he wants don't quite pan out. Hey, ye, that happens to all of us all of the time, and skin color is irrelevant. In actual fact, Ye has a far better chance of succeeding than unknown, unmoneyed caucasians would. You go back to the drawing board and find another approach until it does.
