Kanye West lent his talents to last night's World Aids Day #onestep4RED initiative. The rapper performed some of his best known tracks live in New York City in an appeal to help end AIDS in the developing and first world. 

West performed an eight and a half minute long medley which included 'Power', 'Jesus Walks', 'Black Skinhead', 'Stronger' and 'Touch the Sky'. There was an intriguing moment during 'Stronger' when Kanye's DJ made a mistake, forgetting to change songs (probably because she was vibing too hard with the track). 

Kanye can be heard reprimanding his DJ at the 6:50 mark. “Next song. It's supposed to cut. Laura, Next song! It’s supposed to cut! We on TV.”

West resumes the show, finishing out the last track before a very theatrical mic drop at 8:35. 

See the video of Kanye’s live performance and bask in all his pure unadulterated Yeeziness.
