Kanye West Performs Greatest Hits Medley On “Late Night with Seth Meyers”


Kanye West stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers Tuesday night for an interview and took the stage to deliver an electrifying performance.

Instead of doing a traditional set, the rapper opted for a career-spanning medley of his greatest hits. The medley included snippets from “Jesus Walks,” “All of the Lights,” “Mercy” and “Black Skinhead,” among others. The set ended with a blinking strobe light and West tossing not just the mic, but the mic stand as well in the air before exiting the stage.

Before giving the epic performance, the controversial rapper sat down to discuss everything from fatherhood to creative expression.  He compared himself to Michelangelo, describing his music as “sonic paintings” in contrast to the “sculpture” of his fashion endeavors.

As for fatherhood, Kanye says that being a dad of 7-month-old North will definitely change his artistic approach. No, he won’t turn into the hip-hop version of Wiggles as host Seth Meyers joked, but he will make “artistic, intellectual, kid-friendly songs … If you think about the Yeezus album, cursing was definitely necessary,” West said. “It’d be like if you talked to Quentin Tarantino [and saying], ‘Are you gonna make G-rated movies?’ It’s Quentin Tarantino!”
