While Kanye West's performance of "Blood on the Leaves" was a simple silhouette of him against an image of trees and woods, there was a lot more depth that the audience wasn't aware of at the time. After the performance, he tweeted a link to his website, with the text below, showing that the photograph directly related to the lyrics in the song. Just two days before, Kanye told Kris Jenner (on her TV show, "Kris") that his father was a photojournalist. This likely quieted anyone who was underwhelmed by the performance initially.
