Yha. Very dissapointing. First off, WTF is he wearing? Looks like he woke up from a hangover and walked out to get some quick Dunkin Donuts.

Then, he starts singing Monster, and cuts it off short, with nobody to fill in for Jay Z, and no Niki Minaj shows up. I've seen him with a stage full of guests to help him out and give it a way better vibe.

ALso, no live instrumentation to go with this? NO drums, bass, blah blah, just keyboard players and backing track? Sorry but he can not headline a festival with no support. I'm just watching it on Coachella livestream but . . . sheesh . .. he could've done much better than this.

Above all, I'm sorry but WHAT IS HE WEARING!

Also, no good crowd interaction.

I'm actually really enjoying this right now. I did not expect this to go THIS well. I guess Haters are gonna hate, but in all honesty, I really don't think any guests are needed. I liked his speech he gave. And I think the reason why he has no guests (so far at least), is because I think he's trying to prove that he can headline coachella. He did mention that he was "reading shit on the internet" and what not. Everyone is hating on him for being some gnarly sellout and some materialistic, egotistical bitch (in which some ways he is) but I think he's trying to redeem his title to what it was when he released College Dropout.

subby33
04-17-2011, 10:49 PM
Not trying to hate on him. Reason I'm dissapointed is because I'm a fan of his. I wouldn't be so let down if I didnt care.

He's doing okay . . . better than average . .. but this show could have been a lot more than it is. I give him props for even TRYING to headline Coachella solo. ANd he does have energy.

Just feel that this could have been so much more.

kneuller
04-17-2011, 10:56 PM
the problem I have with him not having guests, aside from how sick it wouldve been, is that the recordings dont sound nearly as good as it wouldve had it been live. people are loving it in the little twitter feed on the youtube page though.

dyltr0n3030
04-17-2011, 10:56 PM
he basically said that coachella was the most important performance to him ever since his mother passed, and how he's sorry for being a douche, and how he loves the people that have stuck with him the whole time.

nfmos
04-17-2011, 10:59 PM
Yeah it would have been pretty crazy if all the guests showed up, but man this is the kind of crowd you want to have for the festival closer. Hes hyped up the crowd, and Ive listened to a lot of coachella closers who were kinda dull and I dont think anyone in that crowd is bored...

Jay was better no doubt, but Kanye was good too. He had energy, a great stage presence and was basically the exact opposite of what everyone that saw his Bonnaroo show said he was as a live performer.

Jay was more about his music, Kanye - while still about his music - was more theatrical. Jay-Z played with a live band but Kanye brought more energy.

Mr. Porter
04-17-2011, 11:55 PM
yeah jigga's set was really well-structured and more "live" as it would be best put. not because of the live band but his emcee presence was definitely showcased

both ye and jigga can command the crowd though

oh well i know i would've had a fucking time at kanye's set (i would've been rolling too haha)

Apex17
04-17-2011, 11:57 PM

man some haters on here lol... whys it gotta be a competition if you would have fun at either set? Yeah obviously Kanye isnt a musician and if anyone was expecting superb musicianship they only have themselves to blame for their disappointment . But hes an entertainer and I would doubt many people left that show feeling as if he wasnt entertaining. God every show you go to doesnt have to be THE perfect show as long as it was fun. For a long ass day in a long ass weekend, Kanye seemed to capture the crowd in a way that not a lot of bands, no matter how good they might be, would have.

All I'm saying is that when I saw Jay-Z I felt that I got something much more than a well dressed dude singing over his album tracks and staring off into space in the long pause between his verses. Jay-Z actually paused, took time between songs to do more than just change outfits. He had live accompaniment. It wasn't just an empty nonstop hits marathon.

Jay lost his voice early in his set last year. It wasn't because he was going hard on every song (even though he was and it was one of the best hip hop performances I've ever witnessed.)

Yeah you're right though, Kanye didn't rhyme or bring any sort of stage presence or anything. /sarcasm

Yeah but how many people in the crowd do you think were upset that he didnt have a live accompaniment? Ive heard some good bands that were really boring closers at Coachella, and it kinda gave a kind of fizzling ending to a day. Sometimes to end the day right you want a nonstop hits marathon.

And of course, Jay Z is a legendary performer, but its not like Kanye was going through the motions up there. He busted ass without having to rely on some cameo special guests to excite the crowd.

You dumb bastard. Jay-Z started like 30 minutes late last year. Benny Benassi's time slot didn't cross with Jay's for more than a few minutes. If you're going to attempt to poke at someone at least make sure the example you use actually works. Deadmau5 would have worked better.

Obzen, these guys are idiots. I can tolerate people disliking Kanye. Can't please everyone, but there is one who is posting over and over about how bad he thinks Kanye was and exagerates and fabricates in attempts to prove his point (Apex) and another who is judging based on his view from the webcast (OK Calculator).

Kanye wasn't the greatest headliner in Coachella history but he was very good and one of the better shows of the weekend, IMO.

Admittedly I'm not really a fan of hip hop in general, but I went into Kanye's set with an open mind, hoping to see otherwise, but I really had trouble getting into it. I guess it helps to be familiar with the tracks since I could only recognize 3. Production wise it was pretty good though, and I liked his little speech about how important this show was to him. It showed some class.

i was there smokin a blunt and was having a ball. the people around me were too, especially this tiny white girl who was rapping just as hard as kanye. the only two things that could have been better were lack the special guests because that would have made everyone lose it and everyone who was rudely trying to leave during his set by stepping all over and in between the lower pit. THAT was bullshit.

For those that were at the set...

For the first few songs, it seemed obvious that he was lip synching. I noticed on his second song...

Reasons:

During his second song he was slamming his mic from his lips down below his waist (which he stopped doing after this song)...but the words continued to be "spoken/sung" when his mic was at his waist.

His set was like watching a poorly dubbed movie...

you realize that hip hop will never just play an instrumental track right?
the ***** wasn't lip synching whatsoever; his voice was there but so was the recording. some of you analyze shit too much. this was all for a performance and i was definitely entertained by it.

I know its not just instrumental...I'm talking about the part where he was singing...or whatever you call the trash coming out of his mouth. Just because he was off key doesn't mean he wasn't lip synching.

Entertaining...LoL
