Kanye West stops his Yeezus concert midway, compares himself to Nelson Mandela and Steve Jobs

Kanye West is reported to have stopped a Florida concert midway through to sling a few profanities at his technical crew before storming off the stage.

The rapper was performing at the Tampa Forum on Saturday night when he became suddenly displeased with the sound and lighting scheme.


The 36-year-old, only a few seconds into his third song of the night, demanded that the music be halted as he chewed out a sound tech for failing to get his levels right.

He went on to berate a tech named Laura for failing to give him the ‘deep voice’ effect through the sound system.

The alleged tantrum was in front of 7,000 concert goers.


Other complaints made by the Yeezus rapper included that his likeness on the massive LED screen projecting his image to the thousands gathered was in colour when it was supposed be monochrome.

After a short delay, Kanye returned to the stage, performing a rousing rendition of Send It Up.

The hip hop artist then ranted, according to several attendees, as per usual comparing himself to Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison and Nelson Mandela.


The name dropping was in defence against his ‘haters’ as he claimed that the aforementioned luminaries had also had their fair share of detractors.

Kanye’s Yeezus tour comes to a close in Toronto two days before Christmas, a holiday he will most likely spend with his partner Kim Kardashian’s family.

The pair have been setting up their nest in Los Angeles after buying an $11m home over the summer, which they are currently in the middle of remodelling.
