Kanye West Blasts Rappers for Copying his Stage Design

"Accept no imitations. You with the rap God right now."

By Hayden Wright

There’s no denying Kanye West’s influence on his rap contemporaries or his penchant for perfectionism. Blend that with his singular ego, and he gets a little possessive—as he did at a recent Canadian concert. West blasted unnamed rappers for “imitating” and “stealing” the set design from his Saint Pablo Tour, and some fans in the audience captured his brief rant during “Freestyle 4.”

“This the original,” he said from the red-lit stage, lifted high above the crowd. “Accept no imitations. You with the rap God right now. N—– be copying my s— bro. Stealin’ our s—, stealin’ stages. Copying our s— one-to-one.”

Kanye is back on tour following a brief break to attend to his family, reeling from wife Kim Kardashian’s Parisian robbery. It’s not clear which rappers Yeezy is blasting for copying his unique style, but rappers better beware.
