Kanye West performs impromptu rap at Henry Holland aftershow

Rapper puts on surprise show at fashion party

Kanye West surprised revelers at the after-party for Henry Holland’s show last night (February 24) in London when he jumped onto the DJ booth for a performance of his part of ‘American Boy’, the Grammy award-winning collaboration with Estelle.

The rapper attended Holland‘s runway show earlier in the evening at Quaglino’s, and returned to party later with his new girlfriend Amber Rose.

The pair were among a string of well-known faces who lined up to congratulate Holland on his pantone-inspired collection including Agyness Deyn, KlaxonsJamie Reynolds, Will Young and more.


West told NME.COM that he is planning on revamping his website, on which he celebrates many aspects of modern and innovative design, from fashion to interiors. He revealed he manages to keep abreast of the latest in design via two employees who trawl the Internet and other forms of media for ideas. They then send their finds to West who decides if he will include them on his blog.

When asked why he frequently types his blog in all caps, West replied “Because I’m lazy.”
