Kanye West "we risking our lives up here"

Kanye West appears to have thrown fans out of one of his gigs after business cards were thrown at him on stage.

The rapper was performing at Washington state's Tacoma Dome on 16 December when he confronted crowd members.

Speaking to fans in the front row of the arena gig he said: "Whose business card is this? I've seen it come from that direction."

He then says: "All four of you guys have got to go."
'Risking lives'

Video footage taken from a crowd member posted online shows West tell the crowd not to throw items on stage that "we're going to slip on".

"These cubes go 20ft in the air, fam. We risking our lives up here," he said into the microphone.

"Unless one person raised their hand and says 'I was the one who did it' all that whole section has got to go."

He then resumes his performance by playing his track Diamonds From Sierra Leone.

The venue did not respond when they were contacted for a comment.

West is currently touring the US with long-time collaborator Jay-Z as part of their Watch The Throne project.

Part of the show sees the rappers perform solo playing their own material.

The pair released a joint album in August.

Must be so scary risking your life onstage and then getting business cards landing on stage.

Remember all the deaths caused by business cards at Altamont?

"Someone threw a business card at me. I just wish there was some way I could figure out who it belongs to."

Next gig, the entire audience should throw blank business cards just to mess with him.
Kanye would make the worst school teacher ever:
"OK, who threw that business card? Who threw that business card? Nobody, huh? Well you're all sitting here in complete silence until someone owns up. Anyone going to own up? No? I can wait all day if necessary. If no-one owns up, you'll all be coming back after school for detention. Don't think that I'm joking about that."

Inside of 10 years, Kanye and Axl Rose will be exactly the same person.

Haha, the mental image I have now of Gambit throwing flaming cards at Kanye West is keeping me amused for weeks.

With them playing the same song multiple times in a row I'm surprised people weren't throwing bottles and chairs.
