Kanye showed up at Highline Ballroom, announced that he signed Tyga & Migos
After appearing at MSG three times (two headlining shows and one surprise appearance with the Bad Boy Family Reunion), Kanye West did his Yeezy Season 4 fashion show on Roosevelt Island and then made a (not very surprising) appearance at the G.O.O.D. Music pop-up show at Highline Ballroom. While there, he performed “Famous” with Swizz Beatz and the “Timmy Turner” remix with Desiigner. And he wasn’t the only special guest: Pharrell showed up too. Here are some pics and videos:

He also announced on stage that he signed Tyga, who no one realized still made music, to G.O.O.D Music:

He also signed the ever-rising Migos, which makes way more sense.
As for Kanye’s fashion show, which was part of New York Fashion Week, the NY Post called it a “total disaster.” They write:
Models stumbled and bumbled down a makeshift runway as the stilettos “designed” by the modesty-challenged rapper practically disintegrated under their feet.
The much-anticipated event — which started nearly two hours late — was staged on the grounds of a long-abandoned smallpox hospital on Roosevelt Island.
Fuming guests were trapped on buses while waiting for Yeezy to show, and at least one model fainted from the heat.
