Kanye West performs surprise version of 'New Slaves' for moshing LA crowd - watch

West surprised fans at a Travis Scott gig by appearing onstage to perform the 'Yeezus' favourite

Kanye West thrilled fans at a Travis Scott gig in LA last night (August 1) by coming onstage for an impromptu performance of 'New Slaves'. See above for fan footage of West's surprise appearance.

The video shows Scott, who helped to produce 'New Slaves', asking for the lights to be turned down at the El Rey Theater before West emerges to a shocked and clearly ecstatic crowd and launches into the 'Yeezus' favourite.

During West's performance, the crowd join in with many of the track's lyrics and then begin moshing enthusiastically. West leaves the stage at the end of the song to a deafening roar.

West released his 'Yeezus' album on June 18 and has since unveiled the finished interactive video for 'Black Skinhead', its first single. An unfinished version of the video had leaked several weeks previously, prompting a Twitter rant from the rapper, who branded the leak "heartbreaking".

Meanwhile, the executive producer of 'Yeezus', Rick Rubin, has recently hinted that a second instalment of the album could be on the way. Rubin revealed that the ten-track album originally contained an additional six songs, and when asked if that meant a sequel was in the pipeline, he replied: "Might be."
