Watch Kanye West Perform, Denounce Nike At Big Sean’s Yahoo! Live Concert
Last night, Big Sean brought out a ton of guests for his headlining show at Los Angeles’ House Of Blues, which was streamed on Yahoo!. Travi$ Scott, Meek Mill, and J. Cole all got to perform a few tracks of their own, serving as a precursor to Kanye West’s appearance. Big Sean and Kanye did the first live performance of their new single “Blessings” while wearing Kanye’s new Yeezy Boost shoe for Adidas. Then, Kanye took over the stage for a bit to denounce his old shoe sponsor Nike, who he severed ties with in 2013: “I just want to talk to Portland right quick. Everybody at the Nike office right quick,” he said and pointed out to Jay Z, who was in the crowd. “Hov … Hov, I ain’t going to talk too long, but I got to say something. ‘Cause I know the execs are saying ‘Nike ain’t scared of Kanye West.’ Should Nike be scared of Kanye West?” he asked the crowd. Later, as “New Slaves” started to play, he said: “But y’all should thank Nike because they made me make these songs right here.” He performed a medley of “Black Skinhead,” “New Slaves,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “Gold Digger,” and “Clique.” At the end of the night, DJ Mustard came out and closed everything out with “I Don’t Fuck With You” as Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, and Tyga came on stage. Sounds like a fun night! You can watch video of most of the show and Kanye’s speech in particular below.
