"Let's have a toast for the ..." Yes, it's Monday and it's still Kanye West at every turn. He told you he wanted to be the greatest rapper of all time and on Sunday morning (October 24) Ye made a run for the title with a surprise performance at the third anniversary party for Fool's Gold records at New York's Brooklyn Bowl. West's DJ A-Trak and DJ Nick Catchdubs run the boutique label that houses acts like Kid Sister and Treasure Fingers among others. Click the image above for a photo gallery of Kanye's performance!
