So it looks like the list of artists looking to take their place on the 1s and 2s just got a little bit longer. Kanye West took his place along side Solange Knowles, Erykah Badu and DJAK47 (Alicia Keys), and rocked his first U.S. party on New Years Eve.
Yeezy, who continuously rebrands himself, began tweeting last week that he was looking for a NYE DJing gig under his new moniker DJ YeezyWorldPeace (apparently, he liked Metta’s new name change). Well, Yeezy scored a gig spinning at the 1 OAK at the Mirage in Las Vegas, and from the reviews he wanted to make it a G.O.O.D. night.
According to Necole Bitchie, Yeezy filled his three hour set with his own music (especially ‘N****s in Paris’, which he played 5 times) and many of his G.O.O.D. Music compadres.
Although folks shelled out top dollar to hear Yeezy spin and party with stars like Fergie, Big Sean, and Kid Cudi, the reviews were mixed.
One party goer called Yeezy an awful DJ and another said, “I’ma let you finish, but Kanye, you are the worst DJ of all time.”
Peep DJ YeezyWorldPeace in action. What do you think?
