An epic rant by Kanye West has been unearthed thanks to those crafty folks over at Gawker. A new tape has surfaced of Kanye ranting after the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

The rapper famously interrupted Taylor Swift as she gave her acceptance speech for Best Video for “You Belong With Me” at the event, with a speech on why he felt Beyonce should have won.

Here’s a portion of the rant… 

“Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse [to ‘Run This Town’] in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé.

As long as I’m alive! And if I’m alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I’m alive, you gonna have to deal with it. ‘Cause there ain’t gonna be no more motherfucking Elvises with no James Browns.

What the fuck was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the fuck Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform ‘Heartless’? ‘Heartless’ is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don’t know that Pink song!

The audio clip was given to Gawker by an alleged source close to West, who took the recording during a meal in New York City following the MTV VMAs 2009.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift made a joke following the announcement of the nominations for the 2013 MTV VMAs, where she has picked up nominations. Posting on Twitter, the singer told her followers that she was preparing for any possible outcome and would keep a firm grip on her microphone.

Kanye, you are one egotistical piece of work. He will never be known as Kanye “Humble” West or Kanye “Lovable” West.
