Last night, Kanye West, clad from head-to-toe in all-black and rocking his favorite kilt from the WTT tour (not a man-skirt, you fashion heathens), was all serious business as he performed a roughly 20-minute set during the “12.12.12 The Concert For Sandy Relief” at Madison Square Garden in New York City. And while we noticed some chatter questioning Yeezy’s choice of not-so-philanthropic-like opening number (Cruel Summer‘s “Clique”) – before running through the likes of “Power,” “Jesus Walks,” “Gold Digger,” “Touch The Sky” etc. – kudos to the guy for helping to raise money for the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which is out to help NY citizens who were affected by the hurricane. Watch the kilt, below.
