Following a rant-filled show that ended abruptly on Friday night in Sacramento, and a cancelled show last night in Los Angeles, Kanye West has now shut down his Saint Pablo tour. There were 21 remaining North American dates, including a New Year's Eve show in New York.

His rep confirmed the cancellation with Rolling Stone, but gave no reason or further information except that tickets will be "fully refunded at point of purchase."

TMZ reports that "a source connected to the rapper" claims Kanye is "just exhausted. He's been working around the clock on fashion design, both his own line and the Adidas line."

West hasn't commented on the cancellation, or what transpired at the recent shows leading up to it. During last Thursday's show, Kanye declared from his floating soap box that he would have voted for Donald Trump, if he had bothered to vote. On Friday, he spiraled into a 30 minute rant, targeting not only Beyonce and Jay Z, but Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Google, and Mark Zuckerberg (read the full thing here).

Yesterday, Kanye uploaded around 100 photos to his Instagram account, which seem to be from vintage Maison Margiela lookbooks.
