Kanye Cancels Today Performance

Like many expected, Kanye canceled his upcoming Black Friday performance at Rockefeller Center. The decision comes after his rant two days ago regarding the Today show. He also says that he doesn’t hate host, Matt Lauer. See, it’s all love-love, yo.

I’m not performing on the Today Show for obvious reasons. I’m so happy the world got to see just a small piece of “the set up”. I blatantly said I’m not performing on a tweet and to everyone around me and the next day they still announced a performance. Do you guys see what I’m saying now… this is just a small slice of the day to day bullshit that goes on that helps to precipitate…… the idea that I such an asshole…. cause when I don’t perform oh noooow I’m the one that’s crazy or a jerk! If I hadn’t tweeted about how they set me up at the show they would have never played the extra footage that displayed how disrespectful…

I want you guys to look at that footage and start to put everything together now. It’s very simple to call someone angry or spoiled or…the one thousand names I’ve been called but it’s harder to try to take a look at what’s really behind the curtain. I’m so happy that my real fans are not as “basic” as the media makes them out to be… Did you see them try to justify playing the audio…under my interview. Yo sometimes you’re just wrong and it ain’t nothing you can say to justify it believe me I know!

Right now I’m not complaining. I’m tweeting because I’m so happy you guys got to see this shit really go down!!!!! : ))))))!!!! FINALLY!!! …And I don’t hate Matt Lauer… We don’t promote hate. That’s the whole point!!! I promote love and truth. We’re all products or our environments … reflections of our surroundings..You know what ….WE OFF THAT!!!… They made a mistake… they thought they could pull it but they couldn’t! That was just a small……representation of a bigger media play that’s been going on since the beginning of time. All positive energy … all smiles. Much love to Matt and the whole Today Show. I accept ya’ll future apology in advance LOL! I’m in Dubai BTW… Bout to rip down this Abu Dhabi stage later tonight!!!

  • smh

    *REPOST*

    Nah Kanye woulda been a badass if this woulda happened:

    “Well Matt I said it before and I will say it again…”

    *stares into camera*

    “George Bush doesnt muthafrrrruckin care about black people. Fuck you George and stop tryna use my name to sell your tired-ass book. But since we talkin where the weapons of mass destruction George? Where they at? The fuck happened to the economy George? Got these muthafuckas all up my ass tryna to get me to apologize for a true statement matter a fact…”

    *while still staring into the camera bitch slaps this shit outta Matt Lauer causing him to fly outta his seat crashing into the side camera*

    “Flashing lights, lights, lights, lights…”

    *takes a sip of water*

    ” Muthafucka gonna tell me I crossed the line… Don’t you know i’m from the Wishanigga Woods? Now that’s how a muthafucka takes a hike. Shhhhiiiiit ”

    *looks at own hand*

    “No one man should have all that power.”

    *stares back into the camera*

    “See what you made me do George… You fuck with the College Dropout you get knocked the fuck out. Remember that cause if I come for your ass it won’t be shoes you’ll be duckin and then you’ll really be Feelin’ like Katrina with no FEMA.”

    *smacks camera away walks off set yelling*

    “That was the greatest interview of all time!!”

  • feelsbadman

    Matt Lauer acted all surprised at what happened.. “so you’re saying you’re sorry?” trying to force an answer out of kanye

  • sidhowRaheem

    LOL, I knew we wasnt doing that shit. Tell the Today Show and the whole cast that Yeezy said they can kiss his whole ass.

    If the producers at Good Morning America are worth a damn they’d be on the phone with Kanye’s people right fucking now trying to make this work for them.

    Kanye,

    I didnt raise you to be a lil bitch. Stop crying. LOL

    your mom.

  • special guest

    so damn sensitive

  • http://www.xtremeeagles.net crysis

    ego trippin for sure kanye is. he should of said he was sorry and been the bigger man and look at the positive that could of came out of the whole situation and be the bigger man. instead he wants to play the race card. his music is good but his ignorance over shadows his intentions.

  • DETOX

    ^^^

    LOL

  • certifiedone

    Kanye, you lose again.

    Could you imagine, Jay-Z pulling a Kanye, before “pulling a Kanye” was known?
    “Eminem outshined me on this track, so i’m not doing it live” But nah Jay-z is one of them real cats.
    People like kanye, and Ross, don’t matter, never mattered and never will matter. Wrist cuttin’ ass niggas.

  • BEN10

    Thats what am talking about …The media always have an agenda …Dont bite ur tongue FOR NO ONE

  • Joshua

    KANYE IS ONE OF THE FEW ARTIST MAKING “MUHAMMAD ALI’ STATMENTS.
    ‘GEORGE BUSH DOSEN’T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE”
    “IN THIS WHITE MANS WORLD WE THE ONES CHOSEN”
    “HOW DO YOU STOP THE BLACK PANTHERS? RONALD REGAN COOKED UP AN ANSWER”
    “I KNOW THE GOVERNMENT ADMINSTERED AIDS”

  • SomeoneSomewhere

    Pussy kanye.Take it like a man

  • bigjay2501

    that would have been some sucker shit to publicly criticize them, then go perform on the show. So I commend him for sticking to his guns.

  • KAL

    Is this nigga Joshua serious? Trying to say Kanye is the only one making dumbass, over-sensitive racial generalizations in his rhymes? I thought this was hip hop. But those Kanye quotes are fuckin conspiracy theories; Muhammed Ali, on the other hand, spoke on some real shit; from segregation to the Vietnam War. U didnt hear him out there giving his theories about the Kennedy assassination or any of that shit. He kept it real. Theres a BIG difference there (like the difference between a visionary and a sensitive nigga that cant shut the fuck up).

    This post reminds me of the one yesterday where MC Hammer was claiming victory. Matt Lauer didnt do anything wrong or even unusual. That kind of shit happens a million times a day on the news. Of course its Ye, so we should have known he would milk it for every drop of publicity he could, but seriously, he looks like a little bitch here.

    Explicit Version of the album leaked btw; its a very good album, starts and ends strong, middle weve heard for months already tho.

  • Word

    Kanye still whining? Someone get this nigga a bib and a pacifier. Big baby, I thought you was over it? So why you still tweeting about it? Just make the damn music and move the fuck on.

  • Haters are annoying–> Belize, Android the rick ross stan, Mac Weasel , the bitch boy cold blood, and lucass,

    @ Kal you nailed it! First of all, former prez Bush made the dumbest quote, by saying the Kanye statement was his lowest point as president. In reality he should have not even addressed Kanye at all. He should have admited to the poor leadership and concern for the hurricane victims. Now back to Kanye, this entire story wouldn’t even have been revamped if not for the Bush book realease anyway. The real deal here is Mr. West is taking a chance here. By canceling a national televised performance proves he’d rather prove a baseless point rather than please his near pop star status. Not doing the show is stupid. He’s smelling himself because his stements were acknowleged by a fomer president. What he said was no more profound than the guy at the barber shop saying the same thing. Do your work Kanye record and play live! It’s your job…to pass on a national performance makes no sense career wise. FYI..this nigga aint Michael Jackson….He ‘s still growing, he aint totally arrived yet, but like a dummy he’s actin like he has. NBC, Don’t need you nigga…you need NBC!!!

  • Joshua

    @KAL YOU MUST BE A CRACKA SAYING THAT BULLSHIT YOU SAID EALIER. I LOVW TO SEE KANYE GET ON STAGE IN ROOM FILLED WITH MOSTLY WHITE PEOPLE AND SAY WE BLACK PEOPLE ARE ONES CHOSEN. IT’S FUNNY HOW SOME OF YOU SO CALLED REAL NIGGAZ DON’T SEE THE TRUTH IN YE. “IN HIS OWN WAY HE ISTHE NEW VERSION OF 2PAC IN A PINK POLO”

  • Joshua

    ” AS LONG AS I’M IN POLO SMILING THEY THINK THEY GOT ME,BUT THEY WILL TRY AND CRACK ME IF THEY EVER SAW THE BLACK ME” KANYE “MALCOM” WEST

    @jbiggs kanye said “i’m in Dubai ABOUT to rip this Abu Dhabi stage” he didn’t say Abu Dhabi was in Dubai…smh. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are neighbors and are not that far apart from each other. and if you wanna be all joe college about it, they are 2 of 7 emirates(dynastic arab monarchies). you should stop misinterpreting other peoples’ words and take you a– back to college. and while your at it…cop College Dropout…smh.
