Kanye West continued his social-networking drop-in tour yesterday leaving FaceBook headquarters to visit the offices of Twitter and perform new music.
While at Twitter's California office, Ye used the opportunity to once again perform in front of a live crowd of employees.
Kanye West's tour of Silicon Valley continued. After meeting with Facebook on Tuesday, the newest celebrity to join Twitter stopped by the micro-blogging service's headquarters for a visit that included him rapping new material from his as-yet-untitled album. "I admit my first watch was a Fossil, now I'm in the Louvre looking for fossils." "Lyrically can't none of ya'll murder 'Ye 'cause y'all raps ain't got no vertebrae/ And we all know the beats is like a mix between Fergie and Jesus." (Rap-Up)
Ye also motivated Twitter employees to tweet about his performance.
Of course, the social networking wizards at Twitter tweeted about 'Ye's performance, typing, "Welcome to Twitter, @kanyewest, and thanks for the visit today." Several photos of the hip-hop's star's visit were also posted on the website's Flickr page showing the Louis Vuitton Don posing for pics and gettin' it in on the mic. It's been a big Twitter day for West in general. At press time, the star netted more than 130,000 followers during his first day on the site and spent much of his first few hours on Twitter micro-blogging about the rapid growth of followers. (MTV)
Yeezy first hit up FaceBook and performed a slew of new songs.
Remember when Kanye first debuted he repeatedly said how much he wants to get respected as a rapper? Well, by now anybody with ears for rapping can attest to Mr. West's lyricism. Thanks to continuous reports and co-signs from hip-hop heavyweights who heard tracks off Good A** Job, the anticipation for the album continues to rise. Adding fuel to the fire, this clip of Yeezy humbly spitting several verses off his upcoming LP at Facebook HQ just adds a smile to our faces. "I am the day Ice Cube meets Mike Jackson. Keep them away, huh? Something might happen." Yea, son hear it for yourself. (Complex)
Following his set, West blogged about the experience.
"To all my friends at Facebook, Many times in life I've had to deal with moments of doubt. And as it's been a minute since I've performed any fresh material in front of an audience, this could've been one of those moments... but it wasn't. Your energy was a gift so electric, so genuine, that it really helped me give my best. The energy was so inspiring I had to keep going! I just hope you got as much from me as I got from you...which was everything! Love to all my fans, especially at Facebook. Kanye West." (Kanye West's Blog)
