Kanye West Begs for a Mosh Pit at Philadelphia’s Made in America Festival
Watch Yeezy's triumphant set in full
Jay Z’s Labor Day weekend festival Made in America managed to snag none other than Kanye West to headline both its Philadelphia and Los Angeles incarnations. Lest you expect that he’s tamed his live set in the wake of his high-concept Yeezus shows, he put on a performance as spirited as ever, but devoid of the usual sort of industry tirades and self-reflective rants.
The whole set was streamed live, and fortunately it’s been preserved online. So you can catch Yeezus in all his glory, speaking positively of tabloid papers and begging the crowd form a circle pit and start moshing during his encore performance of “Blood on the Leaves.” It’s all triumphant stuff and you should watch the first half above and the second half below via Pitchfork. The Made in America live stream continues today over at the festival’s website.
