Rapper compares himself to angry porcupine and blowfish at second London show.
Having succeeded in alienating an entire crowd on July 4, Kayne West's second headline show at London's Wireless festival once again saw the rapper deliver an impassioned monologue against the paparazzi and media intrusion. Much like the night before, the audience response consisted of a mixture of jeers, cheering and casual indifference.
The performance marked West’s second night headlining the Finsbury Park, London event after Drake was forced to cancel his Saturday night set due to illness. Stepping into the breach, West performed brief versions of three Drake songs, “Headlines,” “We Made It” and “All Me,” during his hit-filled, 20-song set, which opened with “Black Skinhead.” and featured renditions of “Stronger,” “Runaway,” “New Slaves” and “Bound 2,” among others.
It was, however, the rapper’s second lengthy rant in as many days that inevitably stole the headlines.
