Kanye West ditched a packed concert in Sacramento, Calif., after unleashing a lengthy tirade bashing Beyonce and Jay Z.

“Get ready to have a field day, press, because the show’s over,” the Yeezy rapper said before dropping the microphone at the Golden 1 Center.

Disappointed fans said the hip-hop artist not only started late, but performed only three songs before firing up an explicit rant challenging Queen Bey and her husband.

“Beyonce, I was hurt,” West began, pausing to lambast a fan for flinging something onto his floating stage.

“I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and “Hotline Bling,” he said.

He said nothing further on Beyonce’s alleged remarks and said, along with music rival Taylor Swift, are great.

“But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win,” West added, before spouting off a slew of profanities slamming two-faced celebrities.

He encouraged Jay Z to call him and talk to him “like a man.”

“I know you got killers. Please don’t sent them at my head,” West said.  

West is no stranger to bizarrely grandiose diatribes, which typically live on his recently quiet Twitter account. He bolted from a concert in Queens in October after learning wife Kim Kardashian was bound, gagged and robbed in Paris.

The Golden 1 Center acknowledged West’s concert stunt in a brief tweet.

“We encourage all guests to travel home safely. More information to come,” venue officials wrote.
