Kanye West refused to give his fans anything but the best on Thursday night. The “Fade” rapper, 39, ended his Inglewood, California, concert early, telling his concertgoers that he’d lost his voice.

“I’m sorry,” he told the crowd, standing on his signature suspended platform. “I can’t let y’all have a show where I can’t perform for you. I’ll give everyone a refund. I’ll do better next time.”

Yeezy performed for about 45 minutes and was more than halfway through his setlist before cutting the music.

“I’m very sorry. I love you,” he said. “I promise you I’ll do better next time.”

West then rode out of The Forum on his platform as the audience boo’d and chanted “Yeezus, Yeezus!”

The evening marked the rapper’s seventh performance in Inglewood in the last nine days. The venue was packed with celebrity fans, including, Harry Styles, Lenny Kravitz, Pete Wentz, Ariel Winter, Usher, Kelly Rowland, T.I., and Bob Saget.

Earlier in the week, West posed backstage at his show alongside his wife, Kim Kardashian, and Cameron Sterling, the son of the late Alton Sterling, who was gunned down by police in Baton Rogue, Louisiana, in July.

The photo, which was posted by Cameron’s lawyer, marked the first time a new image of Kim has appeared on social media since her traumatic Paris robbery in October.
