A couple days ago (August 12th to be exact) Kanye West played at a private event in NYC. The show took place in the Lower East Side at The Box and there were only about 200 people in attendance. During the show Kanye performed some old and new tracks and most importantly, he played the song ‘Mamma’s Boyfriend’ one of the new songs from his upcoming album. Other songs performed at the show include ‘Power’, ‘American Boy’, ‘Say You Will’, ‘Good Life’ and a few others.
The whole set was only about 15 minutes but it was still quite entertaining. Other artists like John Legend and Estelle joined Mr. West and seeing him perform ‘Power’ live was a treat, I love that song. His new song, Mamma’s Boyfriend hasn’t really grown on me yet. The lyrics are good but I’m not a fan of the actual song at this point. I’m sure I’ll get into it though.
Check out the full performance below. His new song starts at about the eight minute mark.
