Kanye West rang in the New Year with a surprise performance and a little booty shaking to his personal selection of hip hop hits. Just before waving goodbye to an all-star 2010 and ushering in 2011 Kanye West returned to his Twitter account after a minor hiatus giving an indication of what he was listening to while ringing in the new year. From Trey Songz to Lil Wayne to Waka Flocka Flame, Kanye appeared to be having a G.O.O.D ‘ole time.
“RUNAWAY LOVE REMIX ON THE RADIO! RAEKWON VERSES CRAZE CAN WE PLEASE TOAST TO THE MUTHAF*CKIN DOUCHEBAGS TONIGHT!!!” West tweeted. Raekwon in return saluted West back for the shout out “@kanyewest my dude happy new year and thx for everything!” said Rae.
‘Ye was in Sin City last night alongside big brother Jay-Z for the grand opening of Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. The venue held a New Year’s Eve bash with Hov on the bill that also featured Beyonce, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and more.
Following his performace the self-proclaimed Louis Vuitton don grabbed Diddy’s attention after shouting him out on the social network.
“NOW PLAYING LOVING YOU NO MORE! DIRTY MONEY” said West. The infamous party mogul was on hand for Kanye and Hov’s show and returned a tweet back at West.
“@kanyewest thanks for the LOVE!!!!” Diddy tweeted. “thank you for being you! happy new year! GOD BLESS!!!! Meet you at the top!!!!!!!”
West has managed to keep a relatively low profile since the release of his critically acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album back in November. The last month of 2010 has been an active one for the producer releasing the Diplomats collaboration “Christmas In Harlem” and working on two separate videos for “Monster” and “All of The Lights.”
Before disappearing for the night West reminded his followers why they fell in love with his ever-entertaining tweets from the jump.
“Can’t Tell me Nothing on the Radio… Jordan 3s on my feet! Hands in the f*ckin sky,” said West. “I KNOW YALL MISSED THESE LUXURY TWEETS.”
Happy New Years Mr. West. Here’s a toast to the douche bags.
