KANYE West stormed off stage just 30 minutes into his concert in Sacramento, California on Saturday.

The controversial rapper performed just a few songs before going on an extended rant where he took aim at Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Facebook and the radio industry and leaving the stage.

He said: "Beyonce I was hurt, I went down for seven years on your behalf. I put my career, my life, my public well-standing at risk. This is a moment in the matrix.

"I heard you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over 'Hotline Bling'.

"In my opinion, now don't go dissing Beyonce, she's great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are - just to win.

"F**k winning, f**k looking cool, f**k being cool.

"At the risk of my own success. I've been sent here, at the risk of my own life, at the risk of my own career, to give ya'll the truth.

"Jay Z, call me. I know you got killas. Please don't send them at my head. Just call me--talk to me like a man."

Just days after endorsing US president-elect Donald Trump, he also blasted his defeated rival Clinton, saying: "This Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant (thing) happening. If your old ass keeps following old models, you'll be Hillary Clinton."

Fans were already upset when Kanye took to the stage an hour and a half late for the show on his 'Saint Pablo' world tour and they were left infuriated by his rant and decision to cut the gig short.
