Watch: Kanye West Delivers An Emotional Performance Of ‘New Slaves’ At Design Miami/Basel


Kanye West made an appearance at Design Miami/Basel last night to talk about his upcoming new album Yeezus and to deliver an exceptionally emotional acapella performance of his song New Slaves. Click the embed above to watch Kanye perform the song without music and with only his emotions to guide him. It’s pretty powerful to watch, I must say. As usual, Kanye West used his appearance last night to say some interesting things about various topics but I don’t think anything he has to say about anything is as interesting as the performance he gave last night.

    Kanye, at times, can seem like a teething, colic-suffering infant who hasn’t had a bowel movement in 4 days. It’s amazing how someone who makes an effort to seem effortlessly arrogant, whiney, and confrontational possesses the talent and spiritual/ musical ability to hush an audience with uncontrolled emotion (or diarrheal cramping- all that screaming would exacerbate my intestinal issues, so my assumptions are in no way meant to be construed as C.U.Next.Tuesday.-ness).

    I can’t get over how talented he is!

    great observations, but his way of life (celebrity MAGNIFIED) i’m sayin, he’s no Meryl Streep, megatalented but stays under the radar, perpetuates much of what he rails against, right?
