Kanye West Hospitalized after Tour Cancellation

Kanye West has yet again chosen to go on a public rant during his St. Pablo Tour. Ye had a few things to get off his chest as he called out Beyonce, Jay Z, DJ Khaled and many others at his Sacramento stop this past weekend. 

He referred to his rant as a "Moment in the Matrix"  right before he cut the concert short and since then has cancelled the remainder of his US Tour Stops. 

According to Apple News, West has reportedly been hospitalized right after cancelling his tour. L.A. Police responded to a 911 call regarding a man suffering from temporary psychosis. He is currently admitted into UCLA Medical Center. There are no further statements from West's team. His wife Kim Kardashian West was scheduled to make her first red carpet appearance since the Paris robbery in honor of her late father. It is not known whether Kim appeared on the red carpet. What's The Word TV will definitely keep the Kardashian-West family in our prayers. 

Stay tuned for updates on Kanye West's hospitalization.

Kanye West Takes Shots At Jay Z for not being a "Real Friend"

Kanye West has beef yet again but you’ll never guess who it’s with, his best Friend Hov!

During his latest Saint Pablo Tour show, Kanye took multiple breaks to subliminally shoot shots at Jay Z regarding his lack of responsiveness after the Kim Kardashian robbery:

Kanye went on throughout the night venting to the audience about Jay Z's motives and leading insight on what really happened to the “Pop Style” track on Drake’s View’s album which West was extracted from. According to Ye, due to Apple Music and Tidal competition, Jay Z is to blame for Kanye’s verse not being on Pop Style's Album version unlike the single featuring both Jay z and Kanye which was released exclusively for Apple Music. To make matters worse, Ye also proclaimed that there would never be a "Watch The Throne 2."

Hopefully this is only one of Kanye's temporary rants and as men, Ye and Hov should handle their issues outside of public eye. It is clear that Kanye's feelings are hurt giving that Hov has always been his right hand man. Let's hope Kanye doesn't have any more venting sessions in the duration of his tour.

Kanye West's International Weekend of Pablo

August 19-21st was the international weekend of Pablo as Rapper/designer Kanye West opened his 21 Pablo stores all over the world. The 3 day execution of temporary stores were established to promote materials from his album "The life Of Pablo." From Chicago to Sydney thousands of people slept outside and stood in incredibly long lines to get an inside look on what the Pablo shops had to offer. 

The Pop Up Shop consisted of 12 different items ranging between $45-$325 with the most affordable item being a Pablo cap. Many items were covered in Gothic font with phrases from songs listed on his album. On top of high prices, many customers were unable to touch merchandise, or enter into a particular store unless in a trio. Visitors received a "store menu" upon entry that listed all merchandise for sale and completed transactions via iPads. Given the stores would only be open for a weekend the traffic encountered was massive. With Ye's past pop up shops in March reportedly bringing in $1 Million over three days, it's safe to say the Yeezy is trying his best to decrease his $56 million debt declaration.
