Kanye West is finally getting around to plugging his latest album, “Yeezus,” albeit, a couple of months after the June release. The new father appeared on his mother-in-law’s talk show — a first for someone as unpredictable as Kanye West. And now, just days after the announcement of his North American tour, he’s made a stop on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” for a memorable performance of “Bound 2″ with the Roots.
Any musical performance with the Roots is going to sound great, however, when you add the charismatic element of West, Charlie Wilson and a backup children’s choir, sheer magic manifests itself on stage. “Bound 2″ is one of the less aggressive tracks on “Yeezus,” and fans can only hope that Kanye brings his bag of tricks on his upcoming tour. West stops at the Pepsi Center on Nov. 3 — Reverb has a full list of tour dates over here.
