Well not that the so called crown that Weezy holds is really that credible…greatest rapper alive just doesn’t fit right for the Cash Money die hard. But Weezy needs to be on guard becasue in the UK on Friday night, Kanye West gave possibly one of the best performances of his life at the Global Gathering Festival, where he headlined the UKs annual dance festival. Taking a somewhat humble role in front of the 25,000 crowd, as he performed, Touch the Sky, Diamonds from Sierra Leone, Gold Digger and All Falls Down, Kanye thanked the crowd with “Thank you for joining me tonight on my quest to become the number one artist in the world.” Yeah Kanye is not just looking to be the greatest rapper alive, he is looking a bit further a field than that. And with performances like that and his ego in check (for once) it looks like he could be a serious contender for that role.

Kanye and Young Jeezy teamed up a couple months back to bring you “Put On,” an anthem for the streets that featured ‘Ye using the ubiquitous vocoder. The record’s been getting very heavy rotation for a while now, and with Jeezy’s album The Recession on the way, the two got together to shoot the video for the hit single. Jeezy’s been rather political lately, so let us know what you think of his new video and his new style. Check out the “Put On” video over at Rock the Dub.
