Kanye West, Yeezus Tour

Kanye West is certainly no stranger to speaking his mind.

And the rapper did just that during his concert in Phoenix, Ariz., on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

His target this time around? The Grammys. Specifically, the lack of Grammy nominations he received this year for his critically acclaimed Yeezus album.

"Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys," he told the audience. "What are they trying to say?"

West is up for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song, for "New Slave," but he was denied recognition in major categories like the more prominent Album of the Year.

That category finds Sara Bareilles, Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Taylor Swift competing against each other.

Earlier this week, West also found himself making headlines when he kicked out a heckling fan at his show in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday, Nov. 8.

While performing one of his tunes and wearing his Maison Martin Margiela-created mask that covers his entire face, the 36-year-old artist became increasingly irritated as a female fan repeatedly screamed at him to "take it [the mask] off."

After lashing out at the heckler, West proceeded to give his security guard the hand signal to throw the woman out of the show, as seen in an Instagram video captured by a fellow concertgoer before launching into a rant.

"Do I look like a motherf--king comedian?" he shouted. "Don't f--king heckle me. I'm Kanye motherf--king West."
