Kanye West had a concert scheduled in Nashville, Tennessee for Saturday night (Sept. 24), but that didn’t stop him from flying to Chicago that afternoon to perform a surprise set at Chance the Rapper’s Magnificent Coloring Day festival.
Referring to Chance, Kanye told the capacity crowd at U.S. Cellular Field, “I’m so proud of this young man right here.” West’s set featured “All Falls Down,” “Black Skinhead,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “Touch the Sky,” “Gold Digger” and “Father Stretch My Hands Pt.1” and “Pt. 2,” and his verse on Schoolboy Q’s “That Part.” He also dueted with Chance on “Ultralight Beam.”
West is currently working on a collaboration with Chance called Good Ass Job. There is no release date yet for the project.
Also performing at The Magnificent Coloring Day festival were Lil Wayne, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Skrillex, Young Thug and Tyler, the Creator.
