Kanye West surprised fans this weekend when he made a surprise appearance on stage alongside Tyler, the Creator at Odd Future's concert in Los Angeles to perform a selection of tracks including recent hit 'New Slaves.'
'Yonkers' rapper Tyler was joined by his Odd Future bandmates on stage at the Camp Flog Gnaw in LA on Saturday night for the hip-hop collective's annual carnival and it seems they pulled out all the stops this year as they were joined by a rather special guest in the form of Kanye West, who brought on a rather funny effect on Tyler who is clearly a huge fan.

“I don't know what to do right now, so - can I have a hug first? I am so f**king happy,” Tyler said when introducing Kanye to the stage.
After being joined by Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt, Kanye, 36, then performed 'New Slaves' from his latest album 'Yeezus' while also taking fans on a journey to 2005 with a performance of 'Late' taken from his album 'Late Registration.' It seems Kanye was a little rusty as he even asked Tyler for his help during the song after not performing it “in six years.”
It seems Kanye has acted as somewhat of a mentor to Tyler over the last few months and the youngster even had some input into Kanye's tour merchandise which is on sale in a pop-up store in LA.
Speaking about Tyler's involvement, Kanye recently told 97.1 AMP Radio: “He came in and was like, 'these are the principals', because he's so talented and understands things because he went to film school. I literally would like email and be like, 'Can you teach me how to make videos?' I want to learn.”
Meanwhile, Kanye is preparing to resume his North American 'Yeezus' tour after several dates had been postponed with a rep for the rapper confirming that they were unable to continue with the jaunt as important stage equipment had been damaged in a car crash. The tour will now kick off again on November 16 in Philadelphia.
