Kanye West Plays My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy at Small NYC Venue
The day afer Kanye unleashed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, arguably his best album, he took over New York City's Bowery Ballroom to perform it in its entirety, in sequence. After his massive, revolutionary Glow in the Dark arena tour in 2008, this 550-capacity was downright intimate, but Yeezy, in signature fashion, made it an epic night for the ages.
Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Swizz Beatz, Pusha T, CyHi Da Prynce, Teyana Taylor, John Legend, Ryan Leslie, and Bon Iver joined him to perform the album. And just to make the show even more Kanye-ish, he ended it with one of his best rants of all time, apologizing to George Bush and Matt Lauer, dissing Taylor Swift again, and signing off with "I like clothes and I still like girls, I don't give a fuck what you think." Mercy.
