Kanye stopped Sunday's San Antonio show so he could respond to the heckling woman in person.
"You can see my face on the Internet every motherfucking day," Kanye retorted. "I came here, I open up a mountain...and you tryin' to tell me how to give you my art."
Though he didn't compare himself to Nelson Mandela, Kanye did launch into a seemingly extemporaneous autotuned freestyle in which he "explained" the need for the mask before grouping himself with the likes of Miles Davis, the Notorious B.I.G., and Tupac, owing to the fact that all three, like him, are Gemini.
"Do I look like a motherfucking comedian?" the sad clown asked, most likely rhetorically. "Don't fucking heckle me. I'm Kanye motherfucking West."
