'I'll give everyone a refund, I'll do better next time'

Kanye West was forced to end a gig suddenly after losing his voice – telling the crowd that he couldn’t perform unless he was at his best.

The ‘Yeezus’ and ‘Gold Digger’ rapper’s Saint Pablo tour called at at the Forum in Inglewood, California, when he stopped his show just 45 minutes into the set.

“Turn the lights up. Show’s over. I can’t let you have a show where I can’t perform for you,” he told the audience. “I’ll give everyone a refund, I’ll do better next time.”

Kanye is expected to soon announce a UK and European leg of the Saint Pablo tour.

Meanwhile, Kanye recently kickstarted a feud with friend and collaborator Jay Z following wife Kim Kardashian’s armed robbery.

“Don’t call me, after the robbery, and say ‘how you feelin?’” West told the crowd during a show on his Saint Pablo tour in Seattle last month. “You wanna know how I’m feelin? Come by the house. Bring the kids by the house. Like we’re brothers. Let’s sit down.

“I can’t take this shit bro. Our kids have never even played together.”

A source then reported that Jay Z in turn ‘couldn’t stand’ West, and that he ‘misses the old Kanye’.
