Kanye West has been caught flipping out again.
But instead of going off on a camerman at the airport, a new audio tape has leaked that purports to be of Kanye explaining why he notoriously interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Viideo Music Awards.
Gawker has obtained and posted the recording, which supposedly features West ranting to friends at the Corner Bistro in New York shortly after the ceremony.
"I'm pushing the envelope!" A voice that sounds like West's says. "I wrote my f---in' 'Run This Town' verse for a f---in' month! When I heard Eminem's verse on the Drake shit, I went back and rewrote my shit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I f---in' care! You know what I'm saying? And that's what I'm saying."
We can't be clear we know what Kanye is saying, but he continued:
"Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I'm alive! And if I'm alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I'm alive, you gon' have to deal with it. 'Cause there ain't gonna be no more motherf---ing Elvises with no James Browns."
Why does Kanye sound so angry, he's asked by a friend?
"Because my mother got arrested for the f-ckin' sit-ins," he replies. "My mother died for this fame s-it! I moved to f-ckin' Hollywood chasing this shit. My mother died because of this s-it. F-ck MTV."
The rapper closed his rant by taking some shots at Pink.
"What the f-ck was Pink performing? Don't nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f-ck Pink perform two songs and I didn't even get asked to perform Heartless. Heartless is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don't know that Pink song! But I know that she's Pink! They put me in a f-ck' room."
A rep for Kanye has not returned calls for verification of this audio, but Kris Jenner will likely speak up soon and explain that West was just tired.
