to pull a kanye is to rudely interupt someone
esp. when by doing so you take the moment away from them or steal the limelight
this is derived from MTV's VMAs 2009 when Kanye West famously got on stage during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for 'best female artist video' and took the microphone from her stating that Beyonce instead deserved the award.
Paul: yo did you see that dude pull a kanye last night?

Steve: yeah he really ruined the night for that little girl

This occurs when one person, in an epic show of douchebaggery, shifts the attention from what should be one person's unforgettable life moment to their own undeserving ass.

Situational Kanye: Hey, no offense to y'all, I let y'all finish giving birth and ay'thing, but y'all shoulda had a girl. Girls are so much better, no disrespect, but they deserve to get born more than any other gender.

Husband: Stop pulling a Kanye and hand me my child back!
