"I used to love Kanye West."
After controversy brewed during the last few stops, Kanye West has reportedly nixed the remaining dates on his Saint Pablo tour.
The news impacted circuits last night (November 20) after the "Wolves" rapper cancelled his show at the LA Forum. As confirmed by multiple sources, West cancelled the remaining 21 dates of the trek and as of this writing, no details have been provided for the reasoning behind the move.
The news comes after West cut his set short in Sacramento after performing three songs and delivering a strung out rant that name-checked Jay Z, Beyoncé, DJ Khaled, Drake, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump.
"Khaled and Drake and radio and Doc and [Real] 92.3 and everybody. Is it just me or did you hear that song so many times "you say you wanna play for free." Aye, aye. You know what it is, though? Because aye, I love Drake. I love Khaled. But they set that song up, bro," he said, among other things ("And let me tell you something: MTV, fuck you! Once again, as always. I'm on my Trump shit tonight"). West received plenty of backlash for the name references (especially from the BeyHive),in addition to his "I would have voted for Trump" comment.
The cancelled dates for the Saint Pablo tour included scheduled stops in Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Toronto, and Brooklyn.
Between the news of his pro-Trump rant and tour cancellation, it didn't take long for social media to take Ye and his Kanyeisms down the traditional Twitter drag session.
Let's be honest... I really hope Kanye deals with his mental health issues & finds his inner peace! #KanyeIsOverParty— Kodi Gaddis (@KodiGaddis) November 20, 2016
