Kanye West rant backstage at 'SNL' released

Page Six has exclusively obtained the audio of a profanity laced rant by rapper Kanye West backstage during 'Saturday Night Live.'

The husband of reality TV star Kim Kardashian can be heard expressing his anger over realizing his set has been moved just before he is to perform on the live television show last weekend.

In the explicit clip, West, who has been heavily criticized in recent days for an apparent 'diss' of singer Taylor Swift in a single off his new album, says he is greater than "Paul the Apostle, Pablo Picasso and Pablo Escobar."
