Kanye West Brings ‘Yeezus’ to Governors Ball

Kanye West

With a little over a week to go until Yeezus arrives, Kanye West headlined the Governors Ball in New York on Sunday. G.O.O.D. Music’s chief, who celebrated his 36th birthday with Beyoncé and Jay-Z over the weekend, closed out the three-day festival with a dark 90-minute set. In addition to his familiar hits like “All Falls Down” and “Good Life,” he played five new songs off his upcoming sixth album, due June 18.

He opened with “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves,” both songs which he debuted on “SNL” last month. He also staged a rousing performance of “I Am a God” and another new song, reportedly called “On Site.”

“When I listen to radio, that ain’t what I want to be anymore,” ‘Ye told the crowd during one of his now-typical rants. “I don’t really give a fuck about outside opinions!”

Watch Yeezus rise below.

    @joseph, can you please explain, in detail, what you mean by this, the history behind your statement, and how it correlates to this post?

    @ewr,
    What I mean by “Satan = illuminati !! it’s sad”
    I’m an uneducated teenage retard who hopped on the illuminati bandwagon even though I have no clue what it even means.
    The history behind my statement is that my middle school classmates talked about it and it sounded cool. I also read a lot of highly reputable teen blogs on the internet.
    How it correlates with this post? It has absolutely no correlation with this post. I’m just an attention whore who doesn’t have any friends so I need to stir up controversy on the internet to feel like I matter.

    Man.. Kanye is doing a great job, finally he is exposing his real opinion. Now i just hope he drop that fake bitch kim and be a great dad to his daughter. His album is going to be sick!
