Kanye West


During his 90-minute set, the rapper performs 'Blood on the Leaves' twice and throws shade at Jay Pharoah who impersonated him at last week's MTV Video Music Awards.

Kanye West is spending his Labor Day weekend headlining Made in America festivals that are held simultaneously in Philadelphia and Los Angeles this year. On Saturday night, August 30, he took the stage at Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway before making his way to West Coast on Sunday.

Wearing his signature bejeweled Givenchy mask, West kicked off his 90-minute set with "Black Skinhead" and continued it with "I Don't Like (Remix)", "Cold", "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "New Slaves" among others. He also played "Blood on the Leaves" twice.

The rapper also took some minutes to talk about Jay Pharoah who impersonated him at last week's MTV Video Music Awards.

"I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV Video Music Awards and I said, 'You know, I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story, let me tell you what I went through to get to that position,' " Ye told the crowd.

"I'm not making it a black or white thing right now, but I'm telling you if you see a black guy anywhere, he had to work 12 times as hard, excuse me. So we're not going to have any black comedians going up on stage spoofing the people who are working hard to open doors not only for black people, but for any creators, beauty, truth, creativity, positivity and just helping the next man out with love, with love, with love, with love, with love," he added.
