At his concert in London Kanye paused a song to go on a 20-minute rant about discrimination in the fashion industry, which resulted in the crowd booing him. Many fans even left in the midst of his rant disappointed in Mr. Kardashian. I mean, I’m shocked the fans of his rap music didn't want to hear him talk about his favorite blouses while wearing a bejeweled mask over his face.
He said: "I'm not going to mention any names but...(I am) Nike, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me 'cause I'm a black man making music." Like what? Kanye’s angry because he feels since he is a rapper the people in the fashion industry aren’t taking him seriously despite the fact that he has something supposedly better than all of them have to offer. Wake up Mr. West you’re selling a plain white t-shirt you have titled “Hip Hop T-Shirt” for $120…you aren’t exactly Alexander McQueen yet.
