Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West became the center of attention last night (February 25) after being booed in his own hometown.

According to reports, West arrived late to a Chicago Bulls game Friday night.

Apparently the United Center crowd was not honored by Kanye West's lateness on Thursday. The Chicago rapper, who arrived at his courtside seat late in the first quarter of the Bulls-Miami Heat game, was booed when he was later introduced to the crowd. So why did the Chicago crowd boo one of its own? West has turned so many people off with his arrogance and temper tantrums. Recently he just went overboard with his abortion tweets, and pissed of Lily Allen who recently suffered two miscarriages. We Love Ye' and he has been booed before- that doesn't stop his talent sales or music!!! (Tattle Tailzz)

This is not the first time West has received negative feedback as the rapper was also booed at a Thanksgiving Day parade last fall.

Kanye West received a frosty reception from New Yorkers at the city's annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday - the rapper was booed as he performed for the crowds. The hip-hop star was one of many artists, including Jessica Simpson and Kylie Minogue, to hop on board a float for the festive show. But West's appearance failed to fill some spectators with holiday cheer and he faced a chorus of boos and jeers as he made his way through the streets of the Big Apple. (Seattle Pi)

Outside of boos, G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean recently talked to SOHH about West's upcoming Watch The Throne joint album with Jay-Z.

"Man, I was in the studio with Jay and Ye about a week ago," Sean told SOHH. "I heard some songs. It's gonna be good man, it's gonna be history. [Talib Kweli heard] 'Black Excellence.' To be honest, I think the most unexpected part is kind of out the way with 'H.A.M.' That was probably the most unexpected. That was probably the last kind of track I was expecting to hear from Jay and Ye but they definitely have some tricks up their sleeves. And they have some types of songs that you would think they might have. They really did a good job at covering all aspects, from the songs I've heard." (SOHH)

To date, West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy solo album has sold over a million copies.

Grammy-winning producer/rapper Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy dropped from the Top 20 moving ten slots to No. 36 with 16,800. After 13 weeks, Yeezy's comeback LP has sold 1,031,800 records. (SOHH Sales Wrap)
