During a concert last night in Atlantic City, Kanye West went on a five-minute diatribe about the media, his critics, and the Grammys.
Kanye railed against the “press and media” for trying to “come up with all the dumbest shit in the world… to try to distract you from what you’re seeing and experiencing.”
He continued: “They’ll try to tell you Kanye’s so crazy, so deranged. I’m not crazy, I’m just not satisfied. I’m just not satisfied with the shit they’re feeding you on TV, the shit they’re feeding you in the movies, the shit they’re giving you in the stores. I want you to have more. I’m just not satisfied.”
In regards to the Grammys, Kanye expressed bitterness for losing Best New Artist to Maroon 5, and questioned why G.O.O.D. Music’s 18 Grammy Nominations were only in “Black Categories.” He said, “Don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year.”
Kanye concluded by saying, “Anything I’ve ever told you was from my heart. Even the times people turned their back on me it was from my heart. Even when people used to say ‘Die Nigga Die’ on Twitter it was still from my heart. Even when they dropped my fucking tour with Gaga that shit was still from my heart. And I’ll die for what’s in my heart.”
