Kanye West Goes Bananas on Leaked Tape After Taylor Swift VMA Confrontation

Ever wanted to be at a 2009 MTV VMA afterparty with Kanye West to hear why he so brazenly interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech? Well now you can be. Allegedly.

Gawker obtained audiotape that sounds an awful lot like Mr. West and friends ranting after the awards show, searching for justification in West's now-infamous microphone-stealing act. Apparently, the reason West bumrushed the country singer is because he spent two days re-writing his verse on "Run This Town." Or something like that.
