Kanye West Performs With Big Sean, Fetty Wap, Travi$ Scott and More at Roc City Classic Concert [VIDEO]
New York City may be all about All-Star weekend at the moment, but it also happens to be Yeezy Season. Kanye West kicked off his time to shine in the Big Apple on Thursday (Feb. 12) debuting his long-awaited collaboration with Adidas by day and and an epic concert by night.
In freezing weather conditions in February, Roc Nation shut down the Flatiron Plaza and Madison Square Park for the first annual Roc City Classic concert starring Mr. West and friends. Introduced by Skylar Diggins, Kevin Durant and Angie Martinez at around 8:20 PM Yeezy graced the makeshift stage to perform a slew of hits.
Sans a live band, just Yeezy, a DJ and is his illuminated red stage, the rapper held it down performing his hits ‘Blood on the Leaves,’ ‘All of the Lights’ and ‘Only One’ throughout the 50-minute long set. But the action, which happened in between his solo performances took the crowd by storm.
Ye’ brought out his G.O.O.D. Music family to join him on stage for most of the show. Travi$ Scott was Yeezy’s first surprise guest. The Days Before Rodeo rhymer rapped through his catalog of songs like “Upper Echelon,” “Mamacita” and “Skyfall.” He even did an awesome crowdsurf during the show.
Big Sean, Pusha T and 2 Chainz -- all rocking Yeezy Boosts -- were also on hand to perform “Mercy” and "Clique." Then Yeezus shared the stage with his brothers as well as assisted Big Sean with "IDFWU." Sean and Ye also gave the audience a performance of their latest collabo “Blessed.” Pusha even performed his street confessional "Numbers."
Once Kanye made it clear that it wasn’t all about him, but actually a G.O.O.D. Music concert, he shocked the crowd again by bringing out New Jersey newcomer Fetty Wap to perform his breakout track “Trap Queen.”
Overall it was a night to remember -- Ye didn't even go into one of his epic rants. Opting instead for words of encouragement, he told the crowd: “Remember anything is possible, I love you.”
