Kanye West To Headline Global Nike Running Event

Kanye West is a busy man these days. He’s crisscrossing the country on his “Glow in the Dark” tour with N*E*R*D, Lupe Fiasco, and Rihanna. And in between he’s making stops at festivals both small and large like Bonnaroo and Hot 97′s Summer Jam.

Now, the Chicago lyricist is set to headline yet another stage. West is scheduled to perform in Los Angeles August 31 as a part of the Nike+Human Race, a simultaneous jaunt taking place in 25 separate cities.

Kelly Rowland will perform in Paris and Moby wil take the stage in London.

West will perform at the L.A. Coliseum and bring to a close a day of 10K races, ranging from Europe, Asian, and North and South America.

“This race is bringing together hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world to run and listen to some great music while serving a higher cause,” West said in a statement. “And I’m excited to perform in L.A. as part of the grand finale.”

    This is why Kanye Excels.

    While other rappers are snitching on each other, having lunch with the FBI, recording phone conversations, or catching cases.

    Kanye is doing shit with Nike (Smart Move For Fellow Sneaker Heads) so he can always get that exclusive shit and getting paid for it.

    I remember watching the “get em girl” video with Camron and how much of an oddball he looked like, now, them same cats is dressing and looking like him.

    Rap is outta control.
