Kanye West's nine-minute hits medley is good, but frustrating

Normally, I'm not a fan of the medley but this Kanye West performance, in recognition of World Aids Day, is a reminder of how amazing his Greatest Hits album is going to be.

The full set-list is the unassailable quintet of Power, Jesus Walks, Black Skinhead, Stronger and Touch The Sky. Sadly, West suffers from microphone issues throughout, which results in him shouting his lyrics (he's normally a much more controlled live performer).

It doesn't help that his DJ messes up, either. Halfway through the set, he forgets to turn off the backing track to Stronger, causing West to admonish him on live television: "Next song. You're supposed to cut. We on TV."

Meanwhile, a Kanye fan has pieced together a two-hour concert video of the rapper's recent Yeezus Tour, using a mixture of professional and "guerilla" (ie shit) footage.

"Detail was crucial and over seven months of work went into this project," reads the video's YouTube description. Watch it below - or, if the lawyers haven't forced it off the internet, wait for the official Hype Williams-directed version next year.
