Kanye West Surprises With New Songs, Delivers Another Rant at Adult Swim Upfront Party
Whenever Kanye West graces the stage, a rant is sure to follow. Case in point: last night's Adult Swim Upfront party at Roseland Ballroom in New York City. The G.O.O.D. Music head honcho performed new material from his forthcoming material and took aim at the pesky paparazzi – remember when they caught him bashing his head into a metal sign last week?
Ye debuted a new track called 'Awesome,' complete with Auto-Tune. On the song, he delivers line about the woman he holds near and dear. "I'd rather do nothing with you than something new with somebody new," he sang, drenched in hues of blue and red lights.
While doing some singing and talking on the mic, he moved into one of his infamous rants. His words were filled with anger, mainly directed at the hounding photographers who follow his every move alongside girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
"I don't want anyone running up on me with cameras... throwing me off my focus and s---. I am no mother---in' celebrity I ain't gotta humanize myself. I ain't gotta 'poligize on 'SNL.' I make art!" West exclaimed. "I ain't running for office. I ain't kissing nobody's mother---in' babies. I drop your baby and you sue me and s---. I'm tryna make some music that inspires people to be the best they can be, and I don't want nobody to ask nothing else of me."
This weekend, the 'Mercy' creator will perform on "Saturday Night Live." Perhaps viewers will be treated to more news about his sixth studio album, which is reportedly complete. An unofficial date of June 18 has been pinpointed as his release date (or the birth of his child with Kardashian).
