Kanye West Gets Booed During Performance At Wireless Festival In London

Kanye West name-drops Louis Vuitton, Gucci Group, and Nike in a rant during his performance.

Taking to the Wireless Festival stage in London last night (July 4), Kanye West was noticeably booed during a 20-minute performance break in which the rapper launched into a familiar rant.

Following the rant, Kanye rattled off hits like “Mercy,” “All Of The Lights,” “Touch The Sky,” and “Blood On The Leaves.” Nonetheless, festival attendees apparently began leaving the performance and booing during the rant.

Video of the crowd reaction was posted on Vine.

“How many people wanna contribute something to the world?” he said. “I know ya’ll might have seen some of my interviews and see me on TV, but what I was saying the whole time is—I’m not particularly angry or anything like that—they taking the idea of celebrity and trying to make me seem like I’m stupid or something. You know, when I take these meetings and shit people will talk to you like you stupid or something...I’m not gonna call no names out, I’m not gonna mention Nike or nothing like that. I’m not gonna say no names or anything. But if you a creative and you wanna create and you just wanna create more this is exactly what I’ve been fighting for. So, if you hear me talking about Louis Vuitton or the Gucci Group or anything like that, I’m not dissing Louis 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 I can’t create. You know damn well no Black guys or celebrities making Louis Vuitton nothing. They let Pharrell make those glasses, and we liked’em right? They let me make those shoes and we liked’em right? They said, ‘No, no, no nigga. Not no more. That’s too much.’”

"That's why I got this fucking mask on," he later said. "I ain't worried about saving face. Fuck my face. That sounded wrong. Pause. They finally got a headline. But fuck whatever my face is supposed to mean and fuck whatever the name Kanye is supposed to mean, it's about my dreams." 

Footage of the rant itself was uploaded by Link Up TV.

    Do like Prince did way back, change your name, guarantee it will get more attention than all those fucking tired 'I'm a slave yet I;m a millionaire trying to sound white (white girl accent/bad grammar) but get mad when they reject me shit'. p.s to all dickriders/ye apologists: I'm not rich ( in terms of money) but I am not struggling( in terms of money/ being a black man), so save your fruity comments.

      Dumb ass # 1, did you watch dude's interviews from last year, money using a white valley girl accent, oh, I get it you became a fan when dude wore a skirt, excuse me kilt. Yeah, we do check grown black men when they sound like white chicks or their grammar skills is retard level. Latin Ivory? Go check what Latin means and that homo fuckery is a trait of your forebears, the Original black man doesn't deal with that Battybwoy shit. Dumb ass # 2 Slavery was mostly about 'economics;, your ancestors used the race angle to justify their actions, just like they use 'grand blanc and 'petit blanc' as a means of establishing 'classicism"; What period of French history are you referring to when you say 'science'? l'Age de la raison or l'Age de la lumiere? I believe you meant 'legal' since Royalties on both sides of the Channel intermarried, fought etc... and remember one of the longest European dynasties was the Plantagenet's and guess what they wrote or were instrumental in law making in England. To paraphrase the Teacher we, black folks, don't all 'eat chicken and watermelon, talk broken and drug sellin'

      language is about conveying an idea. not about elitism on how you speak. that's what white people want you to do is argue all day over this BS instead of chasing paper. did you know all the english swear words were originally anglo saxon terms for stuff, and the scientific word was the french? why you think sappy white ppl mix in french quotes all the time. nothing but classism. exactly what slavery is built on

    Funnily enough he then repeated this action on Saturday, except he ranted for even longer. I left 15 minutes into the rant and know it was going for at least another 20 minutes after that. Most people had in fact left early

    Nobody esp the people in his crowds cares or wants to hear about his rich man problems. We can not relate and no matter how much he talks about it we still wont, and the majority of the world would love to be in his shoes and would not have one complaint about it. So just perform and shut up!

  • G

    I was at the gig, love Ye, but I've seen him several times and he has ranted more than not at these gigs. Sometimes you just want him to stick to the fans, when were paying loads of hard earned money to watch him perform, and he keeps it completely about him, I thought he had grown as a person since having a child, it seems he just wants to keep his ego and celebrity at a high, didn't even say thanks to the fans when he finished. Was disappointing from him, besides that he smashed the concert.

      Fans are spoiled. I'd rather listen to this guy rant than half of the morons out there who dont even have a stage performance set up and scream and grab their nuts for 2 hours over songs with the lyrics on them. Bunch of whiny ass peasants always crying about something.

    • C

      I was there as well and I agree with what you have said. Despite the rant his performance was amazing. There's a time and place for things like of that nature and friday night was not one of them.

    Kanye West is da most garbage rapper ever. ya feel me? he copy otha rappers style and beats!!! ... what an asshole douchbag. dis nigga copied Lil Wayne numerous times... fuck Kangay West!!! The College Registration: wack! Late Dropout: wack! My Beautiful Graduation: wack! 808s & Dark Fantasies: wack! Twisted Heartbreak: wack!

    • Sam Snead

      His first 2 albums were dope and were hip hop, The stuff he did as a producer up until about that point were as well. Graduation was when it went all out pop for him and since then its more of the same. MBDTF was decent but overrated and the others I failed to mention are just blah. I agree Lil Wayne was the worst of rappers to become extremely popular. Kanye was the best of the really popular rappers of the worst era of rap. He makes great beats with great samples and knows how to arrange a song and and an album very well. Lyrics wise he is usually just average though

    Every time I read some shitty headline like this DX.. I get a little bit more urged to never visit this site again. Negativity breeds negativity, we need to enlighten ourselves, listen to Ye! Anyway.. yo, what's a better hiphop site than this trash y'all? Used to be Allhiphop TRASH, now it used to be DX TRASH. What's next? Hopefully no trash. peace.

  • Tea

    Funny thing is the 'rant' was about empowering yourself and not letting anybody or anything belittle you or stop you from dreaming big. HiphopDX did the exact thing he said the media were gonna do. Chop and screw the performance and things said and scrutinise it. I respect him, he may be wrong with some things he says and does but atleast he has the balls to say shit. HiphopDX has lost all of my ratings for this article. Just wanted to come at Kanye it seems, like most of these blog sites, since negativity sells and you guys are feeding it. Jay Balfour you're a hater, a sideman for writing an article based ona instagram video and a prick for not mentioning anything positive. On that note, I hope you have a bad day, you poisonous scumbag

  • Kanye Killing His Career

    Kanye is too full of himself to make any good music anymore. He is digging his own grave with this spoiled child attitude and all this fashion bullshit.

  • Kanye Killing His Career

    Kanye is slowly killing his career with his greediness and spoiled kid attitude. Soon most people will dislike him and he will lose respect from fans, people in the music industry and as a celebrity. Just a few years ago, not even, Kanye was considered a legend as big as Jay-Z or Eminem, now he is making a laughing stock of himself and slowly digging his own grave with his fucked up attitude and narcissm. He should have just stuck with music but this guy is too full of himself to even make good music anymore. Yeezus was garbage.

    People didn't pay to watch him complain about european designers not fucking with him... They want to hear music. That's it! Save that rant shit for a blog or something. Those designers hate that minorities wear their clothes and this fucking clown can't except. Minorities, in particular black people will kill their own culture but go out of their way to support those euro brands so they can look cool and swagged out. SMH

    I wish everyone would start booing this dude at his concerts. Only in America do we tolerate this garbage hip hop and this garbage ego rants. Seriously who cares about your bi polar opinion on fashion companies. This bloke raps about stuff that no one cares about. I never heard John Lennon, Michael Jackson, bob Marley, James brown sing about this trash. Why doesn't he have a rant about the amount of poor people doing it tough or about the crime rate in Chicago, or about American foreign policy. Seriously public enemy made hip hop for this guy to go on rich people rants? Kanye west is a joke and the world sees it. We still like this weak hip hop. Kanye needs to work with Pharoahe monch, mos def, Talib, black thought, common, dead prez, rhymefest and all those real hip hop cats he used to work with back when he was good.

      This is why American's will never understand English people. It's not that we are repressed in fact far from it. We just have a witty and dark self depreciating sense of humour. We don't take ourselves seriously like 90% of deluded Americans. Believe me i've travelled America visited over 30 states and found that the only tolerable American's are the well travelled and cultured ones. The rest are completely deluded and it always makes me laugh how offended you all get by the C***t word.

      That comment highlights why the rest of the whole world despise Americans. Your arrogance and ignorance is incredible. You made a comment about a nation based on a bias article on an american site based on rumours. Who from HipHop Dx was even in that crowd. I was there, the crowd loved Kanye and he said some real shit. A few boos but thats normal. Why didn't they post videos of the crowd calling his name or singing word for word his songs. American is a pit of hate and ignorance. Leave the states and you'll realise how disliked you guys really are. Cunts

      OP is right English people are horrifically repressed in terms of self-esteem and ambition. It's a cultural faux pas to believe in yourself. They are constantly putting each other down trust me. Imagine the worst crab nigga in the hood then multiply it by 1000x and you have an average Englishman. They make a social status out of how little you believe in yourself.

    Damn that's sad... all a nigga trying to do is kick game about what the industry is like to his fans. And it's called rants? I just heard Demi Lovato had two dudes kissing each other on stage and that's called a protest + her fans support it. If I was Ye I would just let these niggas get fucked over because obviously they hate you when you try to school em on life as a entertainer. Fucking dumbasses. How a top artist talking about his experiences in the world a bad thing? Man fuck these stupid ass fans, talking about "Perform and shut up!" Are y'all niggas serious? Smh this culture all the way fucked up tbh..

      maybe people have there own problems in this world and Kanye is in a position in this world to do what he wants by now without begging some corporate white man to put him on. He should take some lessons from Dame, Elijah or Farrakhan and do something positive with his life and help others instead of being overtly self indulgent like a bitch

      Lol but Ye isn't a waiter tho. Now everyone knows for the past year he has been doing the same thing at every concert he has attended but they expected him to change up? For what? Nigga centered a whole tour around the concept of preaching (which people call rants). The better comparison is going to a Chinese restaurant and getting pissed off when you see no cheeseburgers on the menu. If Kanye promised before hand he wouldn't talk I would understand but that didn't happen at all.

      He's talking about fashion nobody trying to hear that bullshit if he wants to kick game do it to the niggas that are doing fashion not an audience that came to see you rap if you went into a restaurant and your waiter ranted instead of bringing your food would you be there like "ooh ah he just kicking game"?
