Kanye West has left fans stunned once again after going on another rant during a Sacramento concert on Saturday night.
The rapper – who is currently in the midst of his Saint Pablo Tour – launched into a tirade on stage, taking aim at Taylor Swift, Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg – and even his once close friend Beyoncé – before her husband Jay Z to call him.
Fans took to Twitter to report that the rapper then abruptly ended the show at the Golden 1 Center after just 10 minutes and performing only two songs.
‘Get ready to have a field day press ’cause the show’s over.’ Kanye barked and dropped his mic to boos from the crowd.
In a clip posted to social media the Famous hitmaker was heard telling the audience: ‘Beyonce I was hurt because I heard you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and over Hotline Bling.
‘In my opinion – now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are – just to win.
‘F**k winning, f**k looking cool, f**k being cool.’
Realising that he was possibly going to lose a lot of fans with his angry words and ending the concert early Kanye added: ‘At the risk of my own success. I’ll give ya’ll the truth’
The Fade rapper – who brought Kid Cudi onto the stage during his brief performance – was then heard pleading for Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z to call him to talk things out.
‘Jay Z, I know you got killas. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me—talk to me like I man’ he said.
Alongside a video clip of the moment Fox40 reporter Joe Khalil wrote: ‘After showing up an hour and a half late to #sacramento concert did #kanye West just walk off stage?? @FOX40’
Fan Whitney Polk wrote on Facebook: ‘He played the same song twice, stopped in the middle in the second song, ranted foe about ten minutes, and then walked off stage.’
Saturday’s incident comes after the hip-hop star shocked a crowd in San Jose by revealing his support for US President-elect Donald Trump while suggesting he still plans to challenge him in 2020.
After a campaign in which fellow artists and African Americans overwhelmingly backed rival Hillary Clinton, the rapper told an audience Thursday night that he did not vote – but would have chosen the Republican candidate.
‘Because I’m a celebrity, everyone told me not to say that I loved the debates, I loved his approach,’ Kanye said in a lengthy on-stage speech, prompting loud boos and aghast reactions on social media.
Kanye said that Donald, who ran on cracking down on immigration and won through white working-class support, could help bring about change by exposing racism.
‘If people are racist and they feel more inspired to say how they feel, then they’re exposing themselves,’ he said.
‘To black people — stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, okay? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much,’ he said, according to a video of the event.
Kanye — the husband of Kim Kardashian, who like Trump has built a following through reality television — last year said he planned to run for president in 2020.
He appeared to be serious, telling the San Jose concert on Thursday: ‘I don’t say 2020 because I disrespect our president at all. … I’ve just got some ideas about the way we should connect.’
The rapper proposed that President Barack Obama and Hillary take roles in advising Trump, running the United States through ‘collective ideas.’
Kanye in the past has backed President Obama and famously irritated former president George W. Bush by suggesting he responded slowly to Hurricane Katrina because he did not care about African Americans.
But Kanye has had a warm relationship with the president-elect, who last year said, ‘I’ll never say bad about him… because he loves Trump.’
