The 2nd annual Odd Future Carnival closed out with a bang at The Park-LA Coliseum in Los Angeles on Saturday night. This year’s bill included Mac Miller, Flying Lotus, ScHoolboy Q, Earl Sweatshirt, The Internet, Frank Ocean, and Tyler, the Creator. After teasing fans on Twitter earlier in the day, Tyler saved the best for last as Kanye West made a surprise appearance on stage.
Wearing a cut-off flannel shirt, Yeezus had fans screaming as he performed the song “New Slaves.” After giving a hug to the Odd Future leader, Kanye took it back to his 2005 sophomore album Late Registration with a rare performance of “Late.” “I ain’t perform this song in six years,” Yeezy said to the crowd as Tyler backed him up taking turns at verses.
During a recent interview with Los Angeles’ 97.1 AMP Radio, Kanye described Tyler as an “artist, innovator, and a good mentor.” He praised the young artist for his banned Mountain Dew commercial and got his help when designing the “Yeezus” tour merchandise.
