Did Kanye West Finally Go Too Far?

Did Kanye West Finally Go Too Far?

Here are two strong pieces of evidence.

Published February 13th

Kanye West's Twitter fingers and antics have been rubbing a lot of people the wrong way lately, but now it seems even his closest friends are washing their hands of rap's most notorious figure.

Rhymefest took to Twitter on Saturday to express his opinions on Kanye’s new album, The Life of Pablo, and was confronted with questions about why he isn't on it. That's when he revealed that, as of last month, the once-frequent collaborators are no longer working together: 

Wow, tough love.

And that isn't the only evidence that Kanye may have finally gone too far. An extra from Kanye’s fashion show anonymously shared with Jezebel what it was really like to be and extra for the Yeezy Season 3 show. She described it as “[heading] to a concentration camp” — which, oddly enough, was kind of what 'Ye was going for.

The extra says she was told she was to act as though she's “channeling a Rwandan refugee camp” while standing motionless and lifeless in the background. Among the other thirty-odd “performance” rules included, “DO NOT ACT COOL” or “ALTERNATE BETWEEN ATTENTION AND EASE.” The extra concluded, like many, that Kanye “actually is crazy.”

 So just one question remains: Is it time for Kanye intervention?
