Kanye West, known for lashing out at various celebrities and politicians, vowed Friday to keep his mouth shut.

The Chicago rapper made the statement during a performance in Toronto on his Yeezus tour, the New York Post reports.

“Everything I’m saying that’s not allowed, soak it in right now,” he said during a rambling speech, the Post says. “This might be the last time y’all hear me talk s--t for a long time. Might be another, like, six months ... This is the last time you’ll ever hear me say anything negative about anyone. Because you only get the energy that you put out into the world.”

West has come under fire in the past for comments about President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift, Jay Z and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
