Kanye was booed by the crowd when taking the stage in England for Big Chill music festival over the weekend.
Kanye West failed to impress some of the concertgoers attending the Big Chill music festival in England on Saturday night, August 6. The G.O.O.D Music rapper got booed when he compared himself to Hitler when performing at the gig.
"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm [expletive] insane, like I'm Hitler," the outspoken MC said. "One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did."
Seemingly unaffected by the disapproving response, he proceeded to defend his controversial "Monster" music video. "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?" he stated.
He also apologized for starting his set 30-minute late, reasoning that he needed to make sure his performance was great. "Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much [expletive] going on in music right now and somebody has to make a [expletive] difference," he said.
Beside rapping his own songs, Kanye also paid tribute to Amy Winehouse and Alexander McQueen. "Thank you for protecting your artists that are still here. This is for McQueen, for Amy, for Michael and for all the media, can you lighten up on all your artists that are still here?" he shouted.
Kanye recently released a joint Hip-Hop album "Watch the Throne" with Jay-Z. The album is predicted to sell big and debut at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 200. On the day the album made its way out, three new promo pictures from the effort were unleashed. They depict a beastly image of the rapper duo.
