Kanye West is known for keeping his fans in suspense as they eagerly anticipate the release of new material. But another thing West has been known to do is take control of a party. In fact, the multi-platinum MC reportedly introduced club-goers to new music over the weekend during an impromptu DJ set at New York City’s PH-D Rooftop Lounge.
A source who was at the venue early on Saturday morning to celebrate a birthday party for DJ Reach told the New York Daily News that West arrived at the lounge alongside Leonardo DiCaprio before grabbing his laptop and venturing off into the DJ booth.
The source told the newspaper that the tracks West played were of “similar production style” to the tracks featured on his 2011 collaborative effort with Jay-Z, “Watch the Throne,” and also premiered a song tentatively titled, “My Perfect Bitch.”
“(He raps) verses about his search for the perfect woman and how he has now found the 'perfect b**ch,'" the source revealed. The partygoer added that the Chicago native concluded his 45-minute set with his controversial track, “Way Too Cold.”
Although there’s no official word if the tracks will appear on his forthcoming compilation “Cruel Summer,” slated for release in September, Saturday's surprise set wasn’t West’s first time rocking a New York City club unannounced. Prior to the release of his 2010 solo effort, “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” he previewed a handful of tracks during hip hop producer Scam Jones’ set at club CV.
"Kanye came through,” Jones explained to MTV News in 2010. “There's a table right by the DJ booth, so they posted up right in front of the booth, and basically, after they hung out for a little while, 45 minutes later, (West's good friend Plain Pat) came in the booth and said he wanted to play some new stuff. He had a CD, and we put it in."
