Hip hop star forgets his line

So I finally caught wind that rapper Kanye West made the classic concert no-no in calling out the wrong city during his show at Arco Arena on Friday.

Kanye quickly apologized on his blog:

PLEASE FORGIVE ME SAC-TOWN
04.19.2008

I can’t believe I bust a spinal tap! It’s no excuse for this I wish I could sink in a black whole. When I said Seattle and there was no crowd response I was up on my spaceship platform thinking damn… I think I just said the wrong city!!!!! I kind of muffled the words so I was praying nobody really caught it. I guess all those hours that me and Phill spent making my mic clear as possible back fired on me! We had alot of problems with the video servers on the first 3 songs and that completely threw me off! Hey, I’m not perfect. Hope everybody had a good time. I’m a man, I can say it… I’m sorry.

Maybe Kanye heard that Sacramento hates hip hop?

Note: A few commenters on this blog picked up on the “Sac Town” reference. People are funny.

  1. Hopefully Kanye’s reference to “Spinal Tap” introduces a new generation to the comedy genius of Christopher Guest, Harry Shearer, et al.

    Meanwhile, sactown magazine editors consider re-branding because, obviously, nobody calls this place “Sactown” and I’m looking in my old Astro 10 notes for the difference between a “black hole” and “black whole.”

  2. I personally have no problem with “Sac-town” as a moniker for our fair city. Better than “North Elk Grove.”

  3. “Bust a spinal tap!” HA!

    btw, is Kanye’s “Golddigger” the dumbest, weakest, stupidest song ever?
