Kanye West's infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards incident where he disrupted Taylor Swift while she accepted her award will forever be one of the greatest moments on TV.
I guess because the MTV VMA's is only a month away, Gawker has alleged audio of West ranting about not being asked to perform at the awards show over pop artist, Pink as well as saying his mother, Donda West, "died for this fame sh--".
The night of the 2009 MTV VMA's, West and other musicians went out to eat where he was supposedly being secretly recorded. The rant hasn't been confirmed or denied by West or his team.
Here's what's reportedly overheard in the audio, scripted out:
"*I'd rather just let the [inaudible] speak for itself. You know, it's like, I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn't say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I've, like, defended myself... [Tape break] I'm pushing the envelope! I wrote my fuckin' 'Run This Town' verse for a fuckin' month! When I heard Eminem's verse on the Drake shit, I went back and rewrote my shit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I fuckin' care! You know what I'm saying? And that's what I'm saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I'm alive! And if I'm alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I'm alive, you gon' have to deal with it. 'Cause there ain't gonna be no more motherfucking Elvises with no James Browns.*
*[A female voice asks, "Why are you so angry? What's the anger?"] Because my mother got arrested for the f--kin' sit-ins. My mother died for this fame sh--! I moved to fuckin' Hollywood chasing this shit. My mother died because of this shit. F--k MTV.*
*It ain't no love. What the f--k was Pink performing? Don't nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f--k Pink perform two songs and I didn't even get asked to perform "Heartless."
"Heartless" is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don't know that Pink song! But I noticed that she's pink! They put me in a f--kin' room and [inaudible - maybe "projected it"].*
*[A male voice asks, "How the f--k did Eminem get the Best Hip-Hop song in 2008?"] Eminem won Best Video! Rap Video! Yo, when he wont that sh--, I was so happy. I was so happy I [unclear - "ran all this shit," maybe]. I said, "N---a, I'm gon' do this until y'all put a bullet in my head. I'm runnin' up to y'all, put a..." [tape cuts].*
