See Kanye West and Kid Cudi Perform Inside a Giant Glass Box at Camp Flog Gnaw

Well, did anyone expect them to just stand there and rap? On his last two tours, Kanye West has performed atop a flying stage and alongside a giant fake mountain, and for the live debut of his Kids See Ghosts collaboration with Kid Cudi at Camp Flog Gnaw on Sunday night, the duo performed inside a rectangular glass box that hovered over the stage at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The box was reminiscent of both West’s floating stage and a similar box that Lorde employed, mostly as a backdrop, during her recent “Melodrama” tour.

West and Cudy’s 45-minute set, which was livestreamed and began at around 11 p.m. West Coast time, spanned material from the duo’s debut album, released earlier this year, as well “Paranoid” from West’s “808s & Heartbreak,” Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” and others (setlist appears below). West, whose hair is now dyed red, may have been under-rehearsed for the set, as he frequently dropped or seemingly forgot lyrics, sang flat and/or ran out of breath.

Kids See Ghosts was one of five West-produced albums to drop in five weeks in May and June of this year. Another West album, “Yandhi,” is expected to drop on Nov. 23.

While no plans for a full-scale tour have been announced, it’s hard to imagine that such an elaborate set was assembled for a one-off concert. West has spoken of Kids See Ghosts as an ongoing project — and, as with everything having to do with him in 2018, anything is possible.

Other performers at Camp Flog Gnaw, Tyler, the Creator’s annual festival, included Post Malone, A$AP Rocky, Lauryn Hill, Pusha T, Brockhampton and more.
