Kim Kardashian West joined her husband, who was introduced by comedian Chris Rock.

The short tracks cover a range of subjects, including his recent declaration that slavery was a choice. He rapped that Kardashian West called "screaming, saying we're about to lose it all," fearing the criticism from the statement.

Nicki Minaj is among the artists appearing on some of the tracks.

Pusha T, Jonah Hill and Big Sean gathered around bonfires to hear West's first album since 2016's "The Life of Pablo."
