Kanye played a surprise show at KOKO in London Tuesday evening and by all accounts it was quite an event. Guests included Big Sean, Wu-Tang Clan, Skepta and CyHi The Prynce. Also present was Vic Mensa and in addition to “Wolves”, the SAVEMONEY MC joined Ye in a performance of a brand new previously unheard track. We don’t have a title yet, but it sounds like a winnner. The song was produced by Stefan Ponce, Smoko Ono and D. Phelps. Check out a preview above until some more extensive footage becomes available.

With his new single “All Day” finally out in the wild, it’s safe to say Yeezy Season is in full swing. Earlier today he visited the Oxford University Museum of Natural History to deliver a lecture to a group of students.

Throughout the speech he touched on anumber of topics including fine art, classism and time as a luxury. He also shared an idea about The Matrix being the “Bible of the post-information age” that he relayed to director Steve McQueen the other day at the “All Day” video shoot.

As is typical of an unrestricted Kanye idea dump, the speech is full of quotables and the University has promised to upload a full video at some point today. Until then you can check out a few choice quotes below and follow the link at the bottom of the page for a complete transcript.

“OK, everyone please be completely quiet, because I can literally hear a whisper, and it’ll throw off my stream of consciousness, and when I get my stream of consciousness going that’s when I give the best, illest quotes. Literally, a whisper can throw it off.”
