Wow! This is a must listen. Kanye West and Mos Def made a surprise appearance at the Robert Glasper Experiment show last Saturday at New York's famed Blue Note Jazz club and turned the stage into their own confessional booth.
With Robert Glasper's band backing him up, Yeezy grabbed the mic to spit a candid freestyle about the backlash he received over his infamous outburst at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. The Chicago rapper claims he's being victimized by the media for being too honest. "Truth be told, the last nigga to ever let the truth be told," he spits to an enthused audience. He latter added: "People try to tell 'em that I hate the Whites, cause I say what's right."
During his 5-minute rant, West spitted a lot of great lines ("All this Illuminati talk, like my first hit single wasn't 'Jesus Walks'") and bizarre ones, too ("This is like the Neo-Emmett Till/ Whistlin' will get your ass killed"). He also alluded to Steve Stoute's gripe with the Grammys expressing his concerns that he might be overlooked next year. "Now I'm scared of the Grammys/ 'Cause everybody know that Dark Fantasy was the highest rated album in history, get me?"
Mos Def, who was also on stage, followed West with his own confessional freestyle, revealing that he recently buried his grandmother.
