SACRAMENTO — Rapper Kanye West stormed off stage Saturday after showing up over an hour late, only playing three songs and going on a 20-minute rant at the Golden 1 Center.
15,000 hard working people in Sacramento just got robbed by @kanyewest.

After West left the stage, the confused crowd began chanting, “(F***) you, Kanye.”
The incident came just days after West made what many fans described as a bizarre political rant at his show in San Jose.
“I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and “Hotline Bling,” he said.
West pivoted from Beyonce’s alleged remarks and said she and West’s longtime rival Taylor Swift are great.
“But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win,” West added, before spouting off a slew of profanities slamming two-faced celebrities.
He encouraged Jay Z to call him and talk to him “like a man.”
“I know you got killers. Please don’t sent them at my head,” West said.
The 39-year-old songster admittedly compared his nearly half hour stunt Saturday night to Trump’s late night Twitter blasts. He shocked crowds in San Jose on Thursday, prompting a sea of jeers, after saying he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump, had he voted.
The audience in Sacramento booed West as he repeated his support for Trump.
The radio industry was also on West’s hit-list. He bashed programmers for overplaying mainstream artists, such as Drake, instead of giving his favorite, lesser-known talents, air time.
The lights went down and the show was over after three songs (according to several tweets from attendees of the show). The crowd responded with boos and chants of “Fuck you Kanye” after 30 minutes of show time (made up of 15 minutes of music and 15 minutes of talking).
