Kanye West Performs a Medley and Jokes Around with Seth Meyers on ‘Late Night’

Yeezy goes off on leather pants, classism and paparazzi.
We’re used to seeing a stone-faced Kanye West bemoaning any number of societal ills like leather pants or paparazzi. However, West was in unusually high spirits last night on Late Night where he joked around with Seth Meyers about an old SNL sketch they wrote together in 2007.

“Life is life,” West said. “There are ups and downs and they will give an eight year old the best pumpkin at any given time and you just have to be prepared for these type of things.”

West also talked about fatherhood and his new music, saying that his new album will have “artistic, intellectual, kid-friendly songs” now that he’s a father. West went on to tell Meyers that being a dad has changed “everything.” “In my approach to life, in everything, it’s changed it,” he said.

But don’t worry, he’ll still be cursing: “It’d be like if you sat down and talked to Quentin Tarantino and was like, ‘Are you gonna make G-rated movies now?’ … It’s Quentin Tarantino.”

Also on the show, Kanye performed a medley of some of his top songs, including “Jesus Walks,” “Touch the Sky,” “Stronger,” “Heartless,” “All of the Lights,” “Mercy” and “Black Skinhead.”
