Kanye West made a last-minute appearance yesterday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where the rapper performed Yeezus cut “Bound 2” for the first time in public. Helped by Charlie Wilson on the hook and the Roots on the groove, West paced around the stage, stepping big in time with the beat while he delivered his rhymes with a restless confidence. Fallon let word of West’s performance slip online last night a few hours before the show aired.
The TV appearance was one of just a handful West has made in recent months: he performed two songs on Saturday Night Live in May, and did “Blood on the Leaves” last month at the MTV Video Music Awards. West last week announced a 23-date tour for Yeezuz that kicks off October 19th in Seattle.
