    The best news I’ve heard all week. An unpopular and classless ‘musician’ is too incompetent to follow a schedule.

    I feel bad for you if this is the best news you get all week.

  • Shawn Petraschuk

    Uhhh according to the information I saw it was cancelled due to one of his equipment trucks being stolen in Seattle, not scheduling.

  • lilc09

    Pretty sure that it got stolen before the show in Seattle yesterday which caused a 2.5 hour delay there…that article isn’t correct.

    Not a musician??? I think you’re mistaken. After 6 very successful albums, I wouldn’t say he’s unpopular… Whether you like him or not, he’s done incredible work. And just because he speaks his mind, it doesn’t make him classless. An asshole perhaps.

    Which lead to the Seattle show starting late… yeah I saw. Still, not his fault.

  • Shawn

    Stfu you Donno shit classless nd unpopular wtf have you done in your life that’s right nothin he’s been successful from the start so stop with you bitchass comments nd go listen to your shitty ass white boy metal music cuz nobody wants to hear anything from you

    That’s pretty good Shawn. You’re exactly the tone-deaf douchebag target audience Kanye got rich on. Your post reads like Kanye himself wrote it — clueless and bigoted. Bravo.

  • seastar

    incompetent to follow a schedule? its out of his teams hands when it comes to getting across the boarder/ dealing with customs. I don’t see how you can consider this being his fault in anyway shape or form.

  • This:

    A classy asshole?

    Classhole ftw

    Though he is far from eloquent and really could use a basic English lesson I do agree with his tone. Kanye is far from bigoted as he is one of the few rappers willing to stand up for gay rights in the notoriously homophobic hip-hop community. His music may not be for you (it certainly isn’t for me, bought tickets for my girlfriend) but I respect the guy for always being himself, even if that is a total asshole sometimes. And I can admit some of his samples are not half bad.

    Tell us more about how you’ve released six albums that record stores can barely keep stocked.
