It would not be a classic Kanye West concert without a classic Kanye West rant.

At the end of night two of a three-show series at Revel in Atlantic City, West took a moment to rail against the media and the Grammy awards.

The freestyle rant showed that West is still sore about a few Grammy losses (despite 18 wins in other categories), reported MTV.

"I love Maroon 5 but when I lost to Maroon 5 for best new artist.. you know what I mean?"

He also mentioned not winning record of the year for N**gas in Paris, his album with Jay-Z.

Kanye told the audience not to expect to see him at the Grammys this year.

West also had a few choice words for the press, which he thinks are not covering the important things in life.

"You know the press and the media, they try to come up with all the dumbest shit in the world to try to distract y'all from what you're seeing and experiencing," Kanye said.

"And they try to tell you Kanye's so crazy. So deranged."

"I'm not crazy, I'm just not satisfied," he added.

Kanye's musical rant also took strange and unexpected turns.

"They said, why'd you show your collection in Paris and I said "ain't that the best place to show it?'"

HipHopDX reported that he ended his soliloquy speaking about death threats he had received on Twitter and the cancelation of his world tour with Lady Gaga.
