Kanye West Rants: I'm Treated Like Hitler!

by at . Comments

Kanye West is at it again.

At the Big Chill music festival Saturday night, the 34-year-old rapper ranted in the middle of his set about being misunderstood and unappreciated.

"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm f*%king insane, like I'm Hitler," he lamented, adding, "One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I did."

West was greeted by boos and confusion.

The erratic performer also defended his "Monster" music video, which features, among other things, cannibalism and girls hanging from their necks.

"Who saw the video before it got banned, before they took it down and before women's groups starting saying that a person that lost the most important woman in his life is now against women in some way?" asked West.

West, who started 30 minutes late, likened himself to Michael Jordan.

"[Jordan] changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much f*%king going on in music right now and somebody has to make a f*%king difference," he said, explaining his tardiness.

Amen. Highlight of the above clip? The fan yelling after the 7:00 mark.
