Kanye West stormed offstage in Sacramento, California, on Saturday night after delivering a wide-ranging rant and only performing two or three songs.

Kanye West hit a low note with fans Saturday night after reportedly arriving late to a concert and then storming offstage after performing only two or three songs.

Video taken at his Saint Pablo Tour in Sacramento, California, shows the “Famous” rapper stopping his set at Golden 1 Center to spout off a lengthy tirade about everything from politics and radio to Jay Z and Beyoncé.

At one point he took a dig at the “Formation” singer’s MTV Video Music Award win over him and Drake, suggesting that she negotiated her big win.

“Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” he told the crowd.

“Now don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F**k winning. F**k looking cool. F**k being cool,” he continued.

He then went on to call out Beyoncé’s husband, rapper Jay Z, for supposedly not calling him. 

The crowd expressed its anger with boos and jeers after he then stormed off the stage. In one video, people are heard shouting, “F**k you, Kanye!”

Others expressed their outrage on social media.

Concertgoer Christian Krebs of Sacramento was among those who were left slack-jawed by Kanye’s performance, or lack thereof.

“I spent $250,” he told the Sacramento Bee. “I might be a fan of his music, but I’m not a fan of his character.”

Keith Jougenatos echoed that sentiment.

“I’ve been a fan since 2004 and all we get is two songs?” he fumed to the paper. “I’m done being a fan.”

By Sunday afternoon, the hashtag “KanyeIsOverParty” was trending on Twitter.

Last month, Kanye went on a similar tirade during a concert in Seattle. There, he chewed out Jay Z for not visiting him after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed in Paris. Ironically, he was upset that Jay Z only called him to ask how he was doing.
