15 Choice Quotes from Kanye West's Ridiculous Sing-Rant Over the Weekend
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."
"How much shampoo can you sell with your face on it and shit?"
"Remind me again why we in this shit!" (multiple times)

"One more thing I can ask in this life that moves so fast and time is something you will never get back, what's your quality of life? That's why I mean it when I say I hope you had a good time tonight."
"It's Louise Wilson's birthday tonight."
"We have the ability to make a human utopia if we help each other."
"Maybe if we tried to come together and love each other and love each other and love each other and love each other and maybe if we tried to come together and love one another and love each other and love each other and uh love each other and love one another and uh love each other and love each other and love each other and love each other and love one another the way you love your mother, man."
