15 Choice Quotes from Kanye West's Ridiculous Sing-Rant Over the WeekendBy Noisey Staff
If the above is not the greatest concert footage ever to hit YouTube, definitely the greatest concert footage to hit YouTube since Kanye West last freaked out onstage and ranted about a bunch of bullshit extemporaneously. The last time he pulled this, it was because he wanted to talk about how Kim Kardashian was pregnant, and also he needed to wear a bunch of psycho masks or else something terrible might have happened. He ranted while his band played a terrifying version of "Clique," starting by simply talking and then launching into the most opulent Based Freestyle of all time, sing-ranting in the most endearing and bizarre method possible. The best part was probably when he was screaming at the top of his lungs, or maybe all of it was the best part. I'm not sure yet.
While you again can watch this rant above, let's say you don't want to watch it and instead just want to read a bunch of random quotes I wrote down from the rant in my notebook. Well, you're in luck if that's what you were looking for, because I have precisely that for you below. Keep in mind, this is all part of an extremely elaborate build-up to "Clique."

"We have the ability to make a human utopia if we help each other."
