Kanye West continued to bask in the spotlight during the Time 100 party in New York last night. As one of the five chosen cover faces for the prestigious annual issue, and of course, a member of the elite list for 2015, West was asked to perform at the evening's celebrations to the influential audience.

West took to the stage with half a dozen shirtless backing dancers, dressed in rags and covered in white chalk, with the rapper wearing an intentionally dishevelled looking ensemble with chalk on his neck and chest. He opened with a cover of James Brown's It's  A Man's World before launching into his newest track All Day, which debuted on the Brit's stage last month. 

He wrapped up the set with a string of old favourites that proved to be real crowd pleasers, such as; Touch the Sky, The Good Life and Gold Digger. West ventured into the audience of the intimate show where some of his fellow Time 100 influencers were happy to snap a selfie with the cover star.
