Kanye West was out in Uganda recording his new album recently and, behind the scenes, things went about as smoothly as you’d expect.
Having set up a studio in a luxury safari resort, Kanye got his security team to arrange a trip out to see a bit more of the wider country. A few hours into this trip, Kanye became agitated and demanded to be flown back to his studio, immediately.
However, night was falling and his security guys didn’t know the region well. They told him they couldn’t secure a plane back that quickly and guarantee his safety, so he’d have to wait until morning. Kanye wasn’t having any of that, so went ahead and sourced some local guys who said they could get him out easily (at great expense).
Alarmed that their rich, famous client was about to walk into a hugely sketchy situation, his actual security team refused to let him leave with the new guys he’d hired, so a big Tarantino-esque stand-off between both security teams ensued.
The stand-off went on so long that morning finally arrived, Kanye’s agitation subsided and they got out without any further incident.
