Kanye West Gives Surprise Performance at Dave Chappelle’s Radio City Show
By Jessica Goodman
Kanye West and Dave Chappelle go way, way back to that one “Chappelle’s Show” in 2003 — never forget: “My life is dope and I do dope sh-t” — but Yeezus wasn’t scheduled to perform at Chappelle’s nine-night stand-up residency at Radio City Music Hall. In true Kanye form, he surprised the New York audience on Friday, June 20 and sang “New Slaves,” “Gold Digger” and “Jesus Walks.”
Halfway through “Gold Digger,” he rapped while walking through the crowd, Complex reported. Friday’s show was Chappelle’s second performance in New York, and while West’s entrance was a surprise, his other shows are set to
include guest appearances from Nas, The Roots, Erykah Badu and Janelle Monáe.
