Kanye West is having a moment. Ever since he dropped his first So Help Me God offering, "Only One," the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho has been giving us lead-up music left and right and on Tuesday night he and Vic Mensa gave fans another new tune during a surprise concert at KOKO in London.
We weren't there, but thankfully U.K. concertgoers supplied the rest of the world with Instagram posts and viral videos that give a taste of the new song, which is reportedly titled "U Mad." It's the second time West and Mensa have collaborated; last month they gave us the moody "Wolves."
There's no telling where the recorded version of the track will end up, but judging from the concert clips it's a horn-filled, bassy selection and it will cause some real excitement when it officially drops.
In addition to the new track, Kanye ran through a few choice hits in his catalog, including fan-favorites like "Mercy," "Blood on the Leaves" and "Power." He also brought out Raekwon to perform Wu-Tang Clan's classic 1993 single "C.R.E.A.M" and his G.O.O.D. Music protégé Big Sean to do his new single "Blessed." Yeezy also showed love to a few U.K. artists as well, bringing Boy Better Know members Skepta, JME, and Meridian Dan on stage with him.
Yup, Yeezy season is upon us.
