I birthed you,” Kanye West told the massive crowd while performing on his floating stage (via Billboard). “We all dealing with that emo sh*t all the time; me, Pat, Don C. Don’t ever mention ‘Ye name. Don’t try to say who I can do songs with. You mad ’cause I’m doing songs with Drake. Ain’t nobody telling ‘Ye who to do songs with. Respect the God!”

Kanye West also told his fans that he felt disrespected by Kid Cudi’s comments while stopping short of calling the Speeding Bullet rapper ungrateful. “You know how many people wish they could be signed to G.O.O.D. Music, get they life changed?” Ye said. “Have that opportunity? Never forget that. I’m so hurt. I feel so disrespected. Kid Cudi, we’re two black men in a racist world. I wore skinny jeans first. I got called names before you, bruh. Why y’all got to come at me? This ain’t the end of the Malcolm X movie. I’m out here fighting for y’all.”
