In case you missed it, Kanye West made a surprise appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to perform his rumored next single, "Bound 2." Kanye's stage presence was, as usual, captivating, but his accompaniment—a choir of lil kids, The Roots, and Charlie Wilson—really made the performance memorable. Also memorable? Kanye's opening line, in which he definitely maybe dissed Ray J, rapping, "Brandy little sister lame and you know it now." #BURN We see what's happening here! Ray J, Kanye West is callin' you a girl: you're not Brandy's little sister, you're her little brother!! SCANDAL.

Also integral to the memorability of the performance was, DUHHHH, 'Ye's outfit. Up top he had on an army green longline tank top and quilted green bomber jacket. He accessorized with three chains of varying length—the longest was also the thickest and most diamond-y. On bottom was a pair of dark olive green pants, fringed suede shoes (probs Visvim), and, umm, a hand-painted, also fringed, leather waist cape (a term we have maybe just made up). Kanye is no stranger to skirts kilts, especially ones made of leather, but this open-front design is certainly a new look and definitely raises a few questions. For instance, did the outfit begin with that piece and grow around it, or was it thrown on (YOLO) at the last second? Was fringe on fringe a look he was going for? Did 'Ye himself paint the words "Earth" "Wind" and "Fire" on the side, or did it come like that? Is Yeezy a big Earth, Wind & Fire fan? Where does it close, and also, how does it close—buckle, button, tie?

Kanye's Yeezus Tour kicks off October 19th, so maybe we'll see more on the road? Maybe he'll decorate each one with different band names? There's still a LOT to be uncovered re: fringed leather waist capes, but we're on it.
