Embarking on the second leg of his ‘Yeezus Tour,’ Kanye West stopped in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday night. As usual, he delivered a 20-minute rant to the audience at the Prudential Center. The subject this time around? Macklemore’s wins at the GRAMMYs, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Nike and “Red Octobers” Air Yeezys, as well as Drake’s recent controversy with Rolling Stone.

On Drake’s Rolling Stone interview
“Those magazines keep trying to put ni**as against each other. We love Drake, we ain’t letting that shit happen no more,” said Yeezy. “It only cost two fifty to beat yo ass,” he continued referring to his recent assault incident in Los Angeles.

On Macklemore and the GRAMMYs
“Macklemore know what it is, he tried, he made some good music, he’s a good kid, but y’all know what it is.
Giving me 2 nominations is like giving a waiter a two-dollar tip, Macklemore know what it is”

On Nike and the Air Yeezys
“The idea that those Yeezys sold out in 11 minutes, yeah that’s good for my ego, good for my ego. The problem is there’s 20,000 of y’all and you know what? That’s not good for my people, for my people, for my people.

I’m not here to be some type of novelty that you can put in a box, so you can say you’re the company that released the Yeezys.

The reason why I made the decision between Adidas and Nike, is because Adidas said I could make more product for more people. The reason why I speak directly to Tim Cook, directly to Eric Schmidt, directly Mark Parker is cause I got a microphone and I can!”

On Apple CEO Tim Crook and the iTunes Festival:
“Hey Tim Cook, stop trying to get artists to play your festival for free. You are rich as f**k.”
