Verb- to Kanye West: To effectively end one's professional career by one's own actions in a specific and unforgettable fashion (e.g., Coming up on stage and interrupting another performer's awards show acceptance speech).
Remarkably, said actions may rally masses of less-educated individuals in support of the Kanye-er, thus insuring the offender another opportunity to embarass him/herself on national TV.
"Whatever happened to <insert celebrity name here>?"
"Don't you remember when he punched that old lady at the supermarket?"
"Oh yeah he really pulled a Kanye West."
"Oh yeah, he really Kanye'd that one."
