“Brandy’s little sister’s lame & he know it now”Kanye West

Kanye West stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s show last night & performed his new single & my favorite song off of his new album “Yeezus”. I like the audio of this live version just as much as the original & this version isn’t without minor controversy as Kanye provides a funny jab at Brandy’s little brother Ray J in the opening line. Dope song, dope performance. Great setup for when Kanye’s upcoming ‘Yeezus’ tour that’s slated to kick off in October.  You know Kanye does great live performances so I know many people will be waiting for this tour along with Kendrick Lamar.   BOUND!!
