Odd Future’s second annual carnival went down last night and fans in attendance were treated to a special surprise performance from none other than Kanye West. The G.O.O.D. Music artist was introduced to the stage by Tyler and performed “New Slaves” and his classic Late Registration cut, “Late.” Before ushering Yeezus to the stage, the Los Angeles bred artist explained to the crowd that he personally asked Ye to join him and to perform one of his all time favorite songs. Check out Tyler as he plays hype man alongside Kanye and recites the lyrics to “Late.”
While recently making an appearance on popular UK television show Later…With Jools Holland, Kanye West performed “New Slaves” with singer Charlie Wilson and “Blood On The Leaves” in front of a live audience. Both songs are featured on West’s new Yeezus LP. Watch as Yeezy switches up the vibe on “New Slaves” and serves up a dope piano rendition while giving the crowd an emotional performance of “Blood On The Leaves.”
Yeezus himself showed up last night for Casey Veggies and Travis $cott’s Los Angeles stop on the PNCXX Tour at the El Rey Theatre. Needless to say, the crowd went nuts when they seen the controversial MC appear after $cott gave the greenlight to venue staff to turn the lights back on. Kanye Went right to work and gave a passionate surprise performance of “New Slaves” off his recently release Yeezus album.
Kanye West’s new album cover artwork was finally revealed. This looks pretty interesting to say the least. It appears to be a melted down Jesus Piece or some sort of distorted gold object with a simple piece of red tape that reads Yeezus. Last night Kanye took over SNL and delivered two new songs with “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves”. Ye’s new album is now available for pre order on his official website and will be available to purchase on June 18 which is the mysterious date he dropped for fans via his twitter account a few weeks back.
In other news, Kim Kardashian took to her instagram and previewed a new Red colorway of the Air Yeezy II’s that Mr. West wore during his performance on SNL. Check out a sneak peek below.
Can’t lie, every time Kanye West comes back he just steps the bar up that much higher. Who would have thought that something like this would have been possible? Ye and company went out to 66 locations and set up shop across Los Angeles, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, London, Paris, Berlin and Sydney. That’s a lot of highly quality projectors that I’m sure came at a pretty penny. What a way to step back in the spotlight though right? Don’t forget, Yeezus will be closing out SNL’s season finale tonight and I’m sure the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho will have something else special up his sleeve to share.
Location: Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada.
After 2 no shows. One on 27th & 6th & another a F.I.T. andddddd missing the premiere at Columbus Circle. I met 2 cool dudes waiting at FIT & decided to split the cab fare 3 Ways & made it JUST in time for the last showing. We watched the premiere & was advised to wait 15 minutes for the truck come around. “It would be worth wait we were told” While speculating I asked some folks what they thought was going to happen. The truck pulls around for another encore & we’re expecting Kanye to perform…. The video plays….. It Finishes. And nothing happens…. Kanye was on the corner of 5th Ave…. Watching us as we’re watching him on the wall & gracefully disappears into the city in his Maybach…..
