Kanye West shocked guests at an album listening party in New York City on Wednesday night (11Sep13) by grabbing the microphone and launching into an drunken, expletive-ridden rant.

The hip-hop star turned out to support his rapper friend Pusha T at the event in Brooklyn, but he became centre of attention when he decided to address the crowd.

West admitted he had been drinking a lot of Grey Goose vodka as he shouted a barrage of incoherent obscenities into the microphone.

In video footage of the incident, obtained by Tmz.com, the Stronger star repeatedly shouted "We don't give a f**k" while he ranted about subjects from fashion designers to large corporations.

He did eventually namecheck the night's guest of honour, shouting "motherf**king Pusha T" before telling the crowd, "I'm done."
