It looks like concertgoers weren't amused by Kanye West's latest rant.

The "New Slaves" rapper reportedly went on an "extraordinary 20-minute rant" in the middle of his performance at the Wireless Festival in London Friday night, preaching to the crowd about discrimination within the fashion industry, according to the Daily Mail. Rocking a bejeweled mask over his face, Kanye supposedly said, "I'm not going to mention any names but...Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me 'cause I'm a black man making music. 'F--k saving face and what it's supposed to mean, it's about living my dream."

This was the point, according to the site, when "hundreds of people" started leaving the park early after getting bored. Many of those that stayed, booed until he was done. Kanye's rant aside, Pharrell and British singer Ella Eyre also performed at the event, which Drake pulled out of because he fell ill at the last minute.

"To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend," Drake said in a statement. "I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me."

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian headed to Instagram earlier this week to tell her followers how much she missed her hubby, captioning a pic, "I miss him so much! #TourLife #HurryHome." In the photo, the 33-year-old Keeping With the Kardashians star and Yeezy are both wearing matching leather jackets with the words "Just Married" emblazoned on the back.

While Kanye has been away, Kim has been spending time with her family, celebrating Khloé Kardashian's 30th birthday with two bashes in New York last week reports E Online.
