There is a new little tape going around the internets today, thanks to a mystery person who shared the recording with Gawker.
The voice on the secret audio recording is allegedly the voice of God himself, Kanye West. The secret tape was recorded at the Corner Bistro in New York right after Kanye finished ruining Taylor Swift’s big moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
The recording supposedly took place while Kanye and “friends” shared conversation over dinner, although it sounds like Kanye was doing most of the sharing. In the recording, you can hear a voice that sounds a lot like Kanye, ranting about how the award show went down…
“Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyonce! Because I wrote my verse (to ‘Run This Town’) in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyonce.
As long as I’m alive! And if I’m alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I’m alive, you gon’ have to deal with it. ‘Cause there ain’t gonna be no more motherfucking Elvises with no James Browns.”
He also expressed anger towards Pink’s performances during the show,
“What the f–k was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f–k Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform “Heartless.” Heartless is the biggest song of the year!”
In the middle of his rant, a female voice asked him “Why are you so angry?” and that is when Kanye started to talk about how his mom got arrested “for the f—ing sit-ins.” And then he said, “My mother died for this fame sh–t!”
Does this really surprise anyone? It sounds like the norm for Kanye, especially after that terrible night. Kanye strikes me as the type of person that complains about his food being too hot. He probably has a person that just blows on his food before he eats it. That’s their only job, a professional blower.
