Kanye West says he can’t book arena shows to perform his new music … and he’s seemingly saying his antisemitic rants are to blame.
Ye just posted a video on his Instagram story complaining about being told by multiple venues there’s no availability for him.
Kanye’s reasoning … “And you know why that is.”
Reading between the lines here, it seems Kanye says people who run the arenas and stadiums have a problem with him … likely because of his hateful rants.
There’s one arena Kanye says is open to his schtick … the United Center in Chicago.
Kanye says his hometown arena is the only one he’s had access to in the past year … and it’s where he’s hosting a listening party Thursday night with Ty Dolla $ign for their new album, “Vultures.”
Ye claims he sold out the United Center in seven minutes … so he’s saying he’s in high demand but is being blacklisted.
At least, that’s the takeaway from this video where he speaks with a lisp due to his new titanium dentures.
Doubling down on his point, Kanye also posted an all-caps note on his IG saying … “I HAVE NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO PERFORM IN A YEAR FEELS LIKE THE ELVIS PRESLEY MOVIE.”
So, yeah … Kanye’s feeling victimized and comparing himself to Elvis.
