Kanye West does the most with the intent of a minimalist and craft of a perfectionist.
His performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards was nothing short of captivating, mesmerizing, and invigorating. West performed the song “Blood on the Leaves” from his latest studio album release, Yeezus. He set the scene with the stage blacked out and a picturesque gloomy nature background. The red dimming light revealed his face as he spewed into the opening lyrics of the song. Then darkness returned and then the unleashing began.
West always leaves you feeling like there’s a bomb inside waiting to explode. And what you get left with is the anger, rage, love, passion, and hurt, being displayed in front of you in every line and sound. We appreciate the depth, passion, song selection, and backdrop. He feeds you creatively, emotionally, and instrumentally. What more could an artist and fan ask for.
