Paying tribute to the inner artistic reflections that are masked inside the T Swift microphone stealing tough guy, Kanye West stopped by the MoMA (Manhattan's Museum of Modern Art) on Tuesday for a short performance. Maybe it was the museum's inspiration of artistic exploration, or maybe it was the blue tinted smoke; whatever the prompt, Kanye decided to break up the set with some honorary simplicity and try his hand at singing without any auto tune! It wasn't terrible, it wasn't great, but at the very least it was Stevie Wonder. The melancholy piano melody of West's "They Won't Go When I Go" cover provided an fittingly haunting soundtrack to the somber-looking musician, who performed the song with his hoodie up, taking breaks to put his hands in his pockets and stare at the ground.

The reflective moment didn't last too long, however, as gears quickly revved into "Hell Of A Life". His hood came down, the lights came up, and the auto tune returned. Nevertheless, the Stevie Wonder cover of "They Won't Go When I Go" provided an intriguing performance from Kanye West, which you can check out below.



Oh, and Jay Z showed up, no big deal.
