Kanye West has revealed that he has been working on new material that will be released "in about a couple of months".

"I wanna tell y'all that I'm working on some new shit," he told the crowd at his show at Zénith in Paris last night. "It's gonna be out in a couple of months". You can watch footage of the proclamation below.

The Paris date was the latest in a string of last-minute intimate performances announced by West, who played two dates at London's Hammersmith Appolo this weekend (February 24, 25). He used the Saturday night leg of the two-night stint to have a lengthy tirade against Justin Timberlake's comeback single 'Suit & Tie', the Grammy Awards and corporate sponsorship.

Interrupting the track 'Clique', he said: "I got love for Hov, but I ain't fucking with that 'Suit & Tie'," he said before taking aim at corporate sponsors "They trying to put their logos on every concert and shit. For the meet and greet, you gotta meet the execs and their daughters. And they'll show you what they just bought her..."

Continuing, West fumed: "So, you gonna help me put on a better show, corporations? Can you please support me? Please? Me, Kanye West. I swear I'm a nice leader now. I swear I'll put the pink polo back on. I swear to you. Please. Just for $3 million. I need it so bad. I need a pool in my backyard! So I'll tell all my fans your shit is cool. And if they believe in me, then they’ll also believe in you."

West also took a swipe at the Grammy Awards, saying: "Remind me again why the Grammys can suck my dick?" Scroll down and click 'play' to watch the rapper's full onstage tirade.

When West played a second gig at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday night (February 24), he chose not to vent again. He told fans: "I got shit off my chest last night but I'm feeling good tonight."
