There’s Audio Of Kanye West’s SNL Meltdown- And It Includes Taylor Swift And Stanley Kubrick Bashing

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 12.58.07 PM

Kanye West sure likes to make an impression.

The rapper called Taylor Swift a “fake ass” and called NBC staffers “white m———–s” during his epic meltdown backstage at “Saturday Night Live” last week, and now, there’s audio to prove it!

In an audio clip via Page Six, Kanye can be heard repeatedly yelling at “SNL” production staff, “Don’t f–k with me,”calling out people for being crazy, saying how influential he is and especially giving shout outs to Stanley Kubrick and Pablo Picasso, all because he was upset that some of the staff ripped up some shiny flooring because it was messing with the stage lights. Hey, don’t mess with Yeezy’s flooring, I guess?

Then the hotheaded rapper went on to proclaim that he is “50 percent more influential” than legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, St. Paul the Apostle — who was handpicked by Christ to deliver the gospel — and even the notorious drug runner Pablo Escobar.

Kanye can be heard ranting, “Are they f—–g crazy? Whoa by 50 percent [I am more influential than] Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, f—–g Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent 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 percent dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.”

He can also be heard yelling, “Look at that s–t they took my f—–g stage off’a ‘SNL’ without asking me. I am bummed … If I am going to do this, we are breaking the m———–g Internet.”

Check out the clip for yourself. And hey, this must make Melissa McCarthy- the primary guest that week- look like an angel.

Big Sean Defends Mentor Kanye West

Kim & Kanye Wedding Guests Arrive In Florence

Kanye West didn’t go to the Grammy Awards on Monday, but obvi his name was on a lot of peoples’ lips!

West has had some BIZARRE Twitter rants lately, including ones on Bill Cosby, personal debt and Taylor Swift…so it’s nice to hear some kind words about the mogul. Big Sean was at the Grammys for “One Man Can Change The World,” which was nominated for best rap/sung collaboration (and also featured John Legend and Kanye West). Sean was quick to talk positively about his mentor:

“He’s great – he’s everything you imagine,” Big Sean told People on the Grammys red carpet. “Like I always tell everybody, Kanye discovered me,” Big Sean explained. “He saw the potential in a kid who rapped for him at the radio station.”

“Without ‘Ye, I probably wouldn’t even be here,” shared Big Sean. “At least he for sure gave me that path, gave me that opportunity. Anybody who can see the potential, change a kid’s life like that, [has] gotta have one of the biggest hearts in the world.”

The Grammy honor is has lots of personal meaning, too:

“I got the chance to mention my grandma in it, who is one of the first female black captains in World War II and one of the first female cops in Detroit where I’m from,” said Big Sean. “It’s definitely a special song. That’s why it meant so much to get that nomination, and it means so much to have ‘Ye on there with me and John Legend.”

Big Sean added: “My grandma’s voice is at the end of the song, so you can just imagine what that feels like. So hopefully I get that award and we boss up and put on for the city and just have a good time.”

Kinda sweet, Big Sean! Words from someone who Yeezy DID make famous!

Kanye West Had An Epic Meltdown Backstage at SNL

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Leave 'Hamilton' In NYC

I think Yeezy‘s seriously losing it.

Kanye West threw an epic tantrum behind the scenes of “Saturday Night Live,” so much so that he threatened to walk outta there and not perform. In fact, Lorne Michaels himself plus Kim Kardashian had to reason with the “Runaway” rapper to keep him from bolting. Here’s the story:

“Just moments leading into the live show, and during the live show, Kanye had a meltdown and threatened to walk off,” said a source familiar with the scene.

Multiple sources told us that Kanye suddenly decided he wasn’t happy with the “SNL” set for his musical appearance, which included a video screen and not much else.

“It had something to do with the set,” said a source. “Kim, who was in the audience with Kylie Jenner, had to come down. Lorne had to personally talk to Kanye. There were a few really tense minutes” when it looked like West was walking, leaving the live NBC show in the lurch.

Another source added of West: “He freaked out about how the set was arranged. He was saying he’s ‘the greatest artist.’ He’s having regular meltdowns. Everyone’s walking on eggshells around him. He’s under a lot of stress between the new album and the fashion line.”

 

Michaels, the first source said, was “eerily calm” through the incident. “I guess after 41 years of doing this, he’s used to it.”

Other staffers were prepping for the worst. “They were like, ‘If this happens, and he walks, what are we going to do?’”

After the “artistic differences,” Kanye finally deigned to stay and perform.

In other unhinged behavior, after tweeting he was $53 million in debt this week, Kanye begged, “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas.” He then declared of himself on Monday, in the third person, “He is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time,” and tweeted at Google co-founder Larry Page, “I’m down for your help too.”

Close call, SNL. I hear his performance was pretty tight, but I think all this diva stuff is going to get old, fast. Unless this album is genius. Who knows?

Will you listen to “The Life Of Pablo?”

Kanye West Says He’s $53 Million In Debt?!

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 1.25.32 PM

What, you didn’t sell enough weird beige ripped tees last week, Kanye West?

Yeezy’s had a busy week, what with his album, fashion show and dissing Taylor Swift and not/maybe asking her beforehand. He also, by his own admission owes millions. What, you missed that tweet? No problem, I’ll clue you in. It said: “I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt,” Yeezy tweeted. “Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…”Last year Kanye admitted he went $16 million in debt while trying to launch his Yeezy clothing collection, but now, that number’s up to 53 (like we said, beige nylons ain’t cheap!).

Well, Kanye, I guess we should all be praying that your new album, “The Life of Pablo,” sells a bunch. And hey, maybe Kim Kardashian can spot you a cool couple mil? She’s kinda the breadwinner of the family, isn’t she…

Have you heard Kanye’s new album? Let us know if it’s worth buying!
