During night two of his Atlantic City stint, Kanye West came out swinging. Ahead of a performance of "Clique," West interrupted himself to blast the media, those who said he shouldn't rap and, of course, the Grammys.
He called out the "press and the media” for trying to "distract you from what you’re seeing and experiencing.” He went on to rail against critics in his past that told him he shouldn't rap. He continued: He continued: “They’ll try to tell you Kanye’s so crazy, so deranged. I’m not crazy, I’m just not satisfied. I’m just not satisfied with the s--- they’re feeding you on TV, the s--- they’re feeding you in the movies, the s--- they’re giving you in the stores. I want you to have more. I’m just not satisfied.”
Up for a leading six Grammy nominations this year, West recalled losing Best New Artist back in 2005 to Maroon 5, just one of many reasons he apparently doesn't like the Academy. After pointing out that all his nominations are in "the black categories," he declared, “Don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year.”
