Kanye West had one of his fans thrown out of a gig in Tacoma, Washington because he threw his business cards on the stage.
West stopped the show and said “I see them come from that direction so like, all four of them gotta go. Unless one person raise their hand and say ‘I’m the one that did it’, all that whole section gotta go. These cubes go 20ft in the air. You can’t go risking our lives by throwing shit we’re gonna slip on.”
He finished up by asking, “We got the person? It’s him?” before walking off to another [less slippery] part of the stage as West’s 2005 single Diamonds From Sierra Leone kicks off with some impressive looking lasers.
Check out the spat below:
The scene happened as part of the Watch the Throne tour, which saw West on the road with Jay-Z.
