Rapper Kayne West, during a concert in Sacramento on Saturday, launched into a lengthy monologue about Beyonce, Jay-Z and politics before abruptly leaving the stage.

According to multiple reports, West only performed three or four songs before going on his diatribe, NME.com reports.

West exclaimed:

This is a moment in the Matrix, bro!

Beyoncé, I was hurt! ‘Cause I heard that 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 tryin’ to diss Beyoncé, she is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people, we are all equal. But sometimes, we be playin’ the politics too much and forgettin’ who we are—just to win. F*ck winning! F*ck lookin’ cool!

I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth—even at the risk of my own life, even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I’ve been sent here to give y’all the truth. Jay Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay Z, call me! Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!

West received a lot of heat from his community earlier in the week after he proclaimed at a different concert that if he would have voted in 2016, then he would have voted for Republican Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.

"I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?" West told a crowd in San Jose on Thursday. "But if I would have voted, I would have voted Trump."
