Kanye West Rocks D.C. For Obama

Posted By on January 20, 2009

    Kanye West will celebrate the induction of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States by performing tonight at the Youth Inaugural Ball (one that wasn't cancelled) in Washington, D.C. The concert will be part of MTV's "Be The Change: Live From The Inaugural" and will air tonight on MTV at 10p.m. ET.

    Kid Rock and Fall Out Boy will also perform as part of the MTV special. Usher and Rosario Dawson will host the event along with MTV News staple correspondent Sway Calloway. This isn't the first time Kanye took part in political events, last year Yeezy performed at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. Kanye was even featured on Obama's official soundtrack "Yes We Can: Voices of a Grassroots Movement."
