Musician and visionary Kanye West canceled Sunday night’s concert at the Forum in Los Angeles. The cancelation came days after Mr. West confessed he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump.
His confession resulted in an epic backlash from media outlets and salty Hillary Clinton supporters.
Then on Saturday, Mr. West gave Beyonce Knowles-Carter and her husband Jay Z a piece of his mind at a concert in Sacramento, California.
Irate concertgoers booed West as he gave them the gift about Jay Z sending shooters to kill him after he revealed Beyonce Knowles refused to perform — or even appear — at the Grammys next year unless she is promised the Video of the Year award for her visual album Lemonade.
“I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth, even at the risk of my own life,” he said. “At the risk of my own success. I’ll give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, you still ain’t called me … Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.”

Live Nation announced the cancelation of Sunday’s concert, which was actually a make up concert for a missed November 3rd show.

During Saturday’s concert, rude fans in front of the stage threw objects at Mr. West — shoes, bottles, panties, etc.
This was a direct violation of venue policy — which resulted in Mr. West cutting the concert short after only 3 songs. Can you blame him?
Before he left the stage, West directed his comments at the handful of black people in the audience. He begged them to “stop focusing on racism”.
“This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that so much. It’s just a … fact. We are a racist country, period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so … long. … It’s a racist … country. And not one or the other candidate was going to instantly be able to change that because of their views.”
He’s right, you know.
People just don’t understand the genius that is Kanye West. There are 2 types of people on this earth: leaders and followers. Mr. West wants you all to be leaders, not followers.
And by “you all,” I’m specifically referring to black people. Those who refuse to be great get refunds.

After Mr. West canceled his concert on Saturday, fans rushed to social media to complain bitterly or to applaud Kanye for speaking the truth.
“This nigga crazy,” said rap legend Snoop Dogg. “I thought he was supposed to be doing a show?” he added.
