Hear Kanye West Shade Taylor Swift in SNL Meltdown Audio

West brands Swift a "fake ass" in his latest tirade

Sadie Gennis

The alleged audio from Kanye West's backstage temper tantrum at Saturday Night Live has been released and in it, the self-proclaimed greatest artist of all time screams about Taylor Swift, an apostle and Stanley Kubrick.

In the audio, obtained byPage Six, West complains that he's "bummed" because of his recent tiff with Swift, calling the singer a "fake ass," supposedly for saying West's song "Famous" -- in which he claims that he made Swift famous -- is misogynistic.

Taylor Swift and Kanye West are feuding again

West also very loudly proclaims in the audio that he's "50 percent more influential" than Stanley Kubrick, St. Paul the Apostle, Pablo Escobar and Pablo Picasso, before repeatedly threatening "Don't f--- with me."

According to Page Six, West even threatened to walk off the show minutes before the live episode began because he was unhappy with the set for his performance. A source tells Us Weekly that West was "venting his frustration" about the set design changes, but never yelled at SNL staff.
