Kanye West Held Seth Rogen Hostage in His Limo to Play Him His New Album
Being Kanye West‘s friend has all kinds of benefits: concert tickets, fashion guidance, getting to be privy to his self-proclaimed “genius.” It also means hearing a sneak peek of his top secret Yeezus followup, as Seth Rogen will tell you.
Not just any sneak peek—unlike the handful of lucky people at Paris Fashion Week who had the chance to mosh to the new full-length, Seth Rogen’s listening party was as intimate as one can get. Namely, it consisted of the comedian sitting in a limo with the masked man himself, who rapped the entire thing live atop beats. Not to mention for two hours.
Rogen recalled the unreal experience to Rolling Stone. “There’s no lyrics, only beats,” he said. “So he raps the whole album, and after each song, he stops it, like, ‘So what do you think?’ We were in the van for two hours!”
As for how Rogen was invited inside Kanye’s limo?
