Speaking/singing on stage at a Saturday night show in Newark, NJ, West blasted the Apple CEO for allegedly asking him to perform for free at an Apple event.
”Hey, Tim Cook, the Head of Apple, stop trying to get performers to play your festivals for free. You are rich as fuck. Quit trying to act like you’re so dumb.”
(Reports that he wished that Jony Ive would also hurry up with his damn croissants were unsubstantiated at time of writing.)
For anyone who wants Kanye’s see the whole twenty-minute monologue/rant — which touches on everything from the 2014 Grammys, to apparent duplicity on the part of Rolling Stone magazine, to the aforementioned Apple criticism — it can be checked out below.
