Here’s footage of Kanye West performing last night at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. It was a surprise show, with tickets going on sale the day of the show for $100 a pop. Of course, Kanye made it worth it by bringing out a bunch of friends including Rick Ross and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. I would have liked to go just to witness Justin Vernon and Kanye West on the same stage. It still blows my mind that those two have teamed up. Hit the jump for more performances from the show along with a video of Kanye giving an intense speech at the bottom. He addresses being villainized, the media, the reaction to his album, and creating music. Thanks to iLLRoots.

PS: Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is out now. Buy it here, or get the deluxe edition here.
