Kayne West shocked guests at an album listening party in New York City on Wednesday night by grabbing the microphone and launching into an drunken, expletive-ridden rant.

The hip-hop star turned out to support his rapper friend Pusha T at the event in Brooklyn, but he became centre of attention when he decided to address the crowd.

West admitted he had been drinking a lot of Grey Goose vodka as he shouted a barrage of incoherent obscenities into the microphone.

In video footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ.com, West repeatedly shouted “We don’t give a (expletive)” while he ranted about subjects from fashion designers to large corporations.

He did eventually namecheck the night’s guest of honor, fellow rapper Pusha T before telling the crowd, “I’m done.”
