Kanye West and friends kicked off NBA All-Star weekend by headlining the first annual Roc City Classic. Thousands of fans braved freezing temperatures to witness the concert, which took place outdoors in the Flatiron District of New York.

NBA All-Star Kevin Durant served as host before Kanye West hit the stage. He was assisted by 2 Chainz who performed “Mercy”; Pusha T who rapped “Numbers on the Board”; Travi$ Scott opened with “Upper Echelon”; and Big Sean performed a slew of songs, including “IDFW” and “Blessing.”

Kanye performed several hits from his latest album, Yeezus, which included “Black Skinhead,” “New Slaves” and “Blood on the Leaves.” He closed the hour-long show with the tribute to his mother and daughter “Only One.”
