Kanye West Taps Big Sean, Pusha T for Secret NYC Show
When it comes to secret shows and Kanye West, the hush factor never lasts long. Late Thursday night (June 9) and well into Friday (June 10) morning, the G.O.O.D. Music captain put on a performance of all-star proportions for the Heineken Red Star Access Concert Series, calling on many of his signees to rap and sing alongside him.
His show, held at Skylight One Hanson -- an old Williamsburg Savings Bank -- in Brooklyn, N.Y., was home to media professionals and celebrities alike, all bearing witness to him perform gems like 'Power,' 'Gold Digger,' 'Flashing Lights' and 'Good Life.' The shades-wearing Chi-town MC's stage performance was accented by pulses of light, hyrdaulic pillars and waves of smoke.
West tapped Big Sean, Mr. Hudson, Kid Cudi, CyHi Da Prynce and Pusha T to perform. The 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' creator welcomed an assist from the Clipse member on 'Runaway,' after he went through his signature MPC banging. Pusha entered from stage right and rapped through his verse in front of a packed house.
Another one of West's rapping brothers, Big Sean, took his turn on the mic, rhyming through 'Marvin & Chardonnay,' which also features the producer-turned-rapper. The song -- Sean has announced it will be his next single -- is featured on his forthcoming album, 'Finally Famous,' due out June 28.
