Fall of 2010 found Kanye in full rock-star mode. Longtime friend John Legend and Mr. West threw a private show at the Box in NYC with a strict dress code and a crazy guest list. Kanye gave a classic Kanye rant during “Say You Will” in which he articulated his frustration with woman who would not live up to promises about sexual encounters (for serious), and even brought out a drum machine to remix some of his classic tracks live onstage. 'Ye began using these private and/or unexpected shows to test out new music from his team.
