We all know Kanye West no longer speaks to the media anymore...because he feels like everything he says is twisted into something negative.  So he often uses the stage as his platform.   And he may have more people than usual on his side tonight after his rant at his London concert...

After Mr. West performed "Clique" on stage at the Hammersmith Apollo in London tonight, he gave the audience a piece of his mind about the Grammys and people respecting his creativity.  And he spoke in general about reminding folks why he does this...and people in this business losing site of the art.

He said he hates business people and sponsors, the ones who ask him in meetings how they can "sell" what he's doing instead of understanding and respecting his music. 

He called out rappers who talk about smashing other dudes chick

He said "The Grammys can s*ck my d*ck"...and alluded to the organization not respecting creativity.

He also said he's got love for Jay-Z, but "not feeling that Suit & Tie sh*t."  Not surprised.
