Kanye West used his performance in London as an opportunity to share his beliefs about racism and the fashion industry.
In a nearly 15-minute-long speech, West touched on everything from the media, fashion industry and his own celebrity. Unfortunately, some of the crowd was feeling it at the Wireless Festival on July 4th. Some fans booed West, while others left.
“You know, people be looking at me like I got a problem or something. Like I’m uncontrollable or something. Like I don’t do what I’m supposed to do,” West said during his 15-minute rant. “You know it’s like they want to have everybody so brainwashed. They want to control everybody, you know, rumors, lies, media, marketing. It’s like they want to steal you from you, and sell you back to you after they stole it. They want to make you feel like you less than who you really are.”
West added, “When I take these meetings and s–t, people talk to you like you’re stupid or something… I’m not gonna call no names. I’m not going to mention Nike or nothing like that,” he said. “I’m not dissing Luis Vuitton, I’m not dissing the Gucci group and shit. I’m just saying, don’t discriminate against me because I’m a black man or because I’m a celebrity and tell me that I can create, but not feel. ‘Cause you know damn well there aren’t no black guys or celebrities making no Louis Vuitton nothing.
“They let Pharrell make those glasses, and we liked them, right? They let me make those shoes, and we liked them right? And they say, “No no no n****r. Not no more. That’s too much. That’s too much. No no no no no no n**** not no more. That’s way too much. That’s way too much. Stay in your place. Sit in the front of that show and wear this jacket I made you. Stay in your place. Do what you get paid to do. Stay in your place. Don’t embarrass yourself trying to chase your dreams. Save face. Save face.”
West also revealed that he told Kim Kardashian seven years ago that he was going to marry her. That was around the time the reality star was dating Detroit Lions star Reggie Bush. Watch Kanye West’s speech below.
