Kanye West Gets Intimate With The Essence Music Festival Crowd (Video)

It seems like damn near all of Atlanta went to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. A number of people I saw on twitter talked about Kanye West’s performance. Some people were dissing it, but after I watched this video it was clear to me that Kanye was just amongst family. If you’re touring all over the world you can’t get intimate with fans like this who don’t really know you. I guess that’s why Kanye also explained why he also doesn’t talk to the press anymore. Can’t knock the brother for trying to do something different by playing with the crowd who knows good black music & probably knows him best. Plus the Essence Music Festival organizers probably couldn’t afford Kanye’s million dollar performance fees & he may have wanted to participate in some capacity for his core audience.
