Kanye West shocked New York partygoers when he jumped onstage and rocked New York's American Museum of Natural History during Flavorpill's One Step Beyond event on January 25. The crowd was all revved up for Chicago emcees the Cool Kids, newcomer MC Kid Sister and DJ A-Trak when the more popular Chicagoan made a surprise appearance.

West performed his latest hit 'Good Life,' along with 'Can't Tell Me Nothing' and 'Stronger.' This rare appearance may signal the beginning of West's resurgence after laying low in the wake of the sudden death of his mother, Donda West.

West has recently been seen hanging with Jay-Z at his new 40/40 Club in Las Vegas, playing Connect Four with Beyonce, and catching a New Jersey Nets game with both Beyonce and Jay-Z.
