Kanye Went Crazy Backstage On SNL And Someone Recorded It

at1:21 pm | By

Kanye West has definitely been raising our eyebrows, as well as our concerns, in recent weeks, as he’s been going pretty hard on Twitter. The super producer and rapper has been going on a ton of different rants, revealing a lot of odd information, such as his $53 million debt, and his opinions on Bill Cosby. Recently, Yeezy performed on SNL, and it became the talk of the Internet very quickly. What many didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was having a full-fledged meltdown backstage just moments before he took the stage.

While it was simply reported earlier this week that Kanye had a meltdown backstage at SNL, we weren’t sure exactly what that meant. It was only reported that he kept exclaiming that he was “the greatest artist ever,” but no one else knew what happened.

A recording of the incident was actually leaked to the Internet later this week, which revealed all of the crazy things that `Ye said during his tirade. Not only did he call Taylor Swift a “fake a$$,” but he also cursed out the SNL crew members for not setting up his stage the way he wanted.
