On Monday morning, Kanye West hammered the final nail in the coffin of his megawatt Saint Pablo Tour. West’s 21 remaining tour dates, which include shows in Houston, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn, are dead and gone. R.I.P.

A rep for West confirmed the news, stating, “The remaining dates on the SAINT PABLO TOUR have been cancelled. Tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.”

The news comes just days following Yeezy’s strange rant at a concert in Sacramento, Calif., on Saturday, during which he called out Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Hillary Clinton, and then closed the show early.

According to a People source, the cause may be a simple one. “He’s just exhausted. He’s been working around the clock on fashion design, both on his own line and the Adidas line. He’s a notorious workaholic, so balancing both that work–which is extremely important to him–and the rigors of the tour every night, it really wore him out.”

Though it pains us to say, the rise and abrupt fall of West’s concert series isn’t completely unexpected. The rapper’s a wild card, but consistent enough that his antics are becoming pretty predictable. "Kanye being Kanye" is the new black.

In a somewhat less expected turn, Mr. West upped his Instagram game Sunday and posted 99 low-quality product shots of clothing, shoes, and accessories. Prior to the 39-year-old’s rapid-fire Instagram binge, he’d only ever posted one photo to his official account, behold:
