Gawker posted a taped recording - of which they can't confirm is Kanye - but if it isn't I don't know who else it would be ranting like this. The conversation was recorded at dinner the night of the VMA's right after he jumped on stage with Taylor Swift.
At one point he is yelling about writing the verse for "Run This Town" in two days ...and how he was angry about Pink being asked to perform instead of him.
Someone at the dinner asked "why he is angry" which lead him to yelingl about his mom dying for fame.

Here's a transcript of what's being said:
I'd rather just let the [inaudible] speak for itself. You know, it's like, I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn't say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I've, like, defended myself... [Tape break] I'm pushing the envelope! I wrote my f***in' 'Run This Town' verse for a f***in' month! When I heard Eminem's verse on the Drake s**t, I went back and rewrote my s**t for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I fuckin' care! You know what I'm saying? And that's what I'm saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I'm alive! And if I'm alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I'm alive, you gon' have to deal with it. 'Cause there ain't gonna be no more motherf***ing Elvises with no James Browns.
[A female voice asks, "Why are you so angry? What's the anger?"] Because my mother got arrested for the f***in' sit-ins. My mother died for this fame s**t! I moved to f***in' Hollywood chasing this s**t. My mother died because of this s**t. F**k MTV.
It ain't no love. What the f**k was Pink performing? Don't nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f**k Pink perform two songs and I didn't even get asked to perform "Heartless." "Heartless" is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don't know that Pink song! But I noticed that she's pink! They put me in a f***in' room and [inaudible - maybe "projected it"].
[A male voice asks, "How the f**k did Eminem get the Best Hip-Hop song in 2008?"] Eminem won Best Video! Rap Video! Yo, when he wont that s**t, I was so happy. I was so happy I [unclear - "ran all this s**t," maybe]. I said, "N***a, I'm gon' do this until y'all put a bullet in my head. I'm runnin' up to y'all, put a..." [tape cuts].
PINK responded to this on Twitter, very classy:
Oh come on y'all... If people secretly recorded me and all the shit I talk.... It's all good. All love. And we all still here. Peace please— P!nk (@Pink) July 19, 2013
