As you would expect him to do at a showcase of rappers signed to his own GOOD Music label, Kanye West made an appearance at Knitting Factory in NYC last night (Sept 9). The whole show went: 88 Keys, Termanology, Big Sean, Mickey Factz, Kid Cudi, and then Consequence. Wale did some deejaying between sets. Kanye West came out during Consequence's set. They did "Gone" and "Flashing Lights" and a few of Consequence's songs. Then, as he's done before with his cousin Consequence, Q-Tip joined them on stage. Then Kid Cudi came back out and eventually pretty much everyone from the night was on stage by the end. As expected, people went nuts for Kanye.

In related news,

The release date and title for Kanye West's upcoming fourth solo album has been revealed.

According to a posting on Target's website, Kanye's album is titled 808's & Heartbreak and will be hitting stores on December 16th.

West performed a single from the album titled "Love Lockdown" at the MTV Video Music Awards this past weekend.

Come on' BV... you talk about bullshit hip hop shit like this but have nothing to say about Anthony Green and Good Ol' War at the Highline last night?

Yea, whatever - the show was fucking awesome

Probably because Anthony Green went from one to shitty band to another not quite as shitty band (but still pretty shitty) while juggling a shitty solo act. Furthering a horrible cycle of musical diarrhea.

Agreement about Wu Tang's live show... powerful shit! And let's face it, 90% of BV readers and BV himself don't have a clue when it comes to good hip-hop. There's better blogs for that:
