Yes, that’s Kanye West performing his new song “All Day.” But look past flamethrowers and the army of on-stage extras and who do you see?
Besides Theophilus London that is (who was scheduled to perform last night at The Fine Line but cancelled).
That’s right. None other than Twin Cities hip hop artist (and part of the collective The StAnd4rd) Allan Kingdom was doing the hook for the new song (and is going to be featured on the recorded version when Kanye’s new album drops later this year). Mr. Kingdom’s star is continuing to rise as he and his album Future Memoirs swept all of the critics awards last year (including getting on our year-end best-of list).
Of course the Twin Cities Twitteratti were literally losing their minds over the good news:
