This has been a pretty heavy news day for Mr. West. In the past 24 hours, his wife's nude photos leaked to the internet, photos of his fashion class in Los Angeles hit Instagram, and James Franco revealed the details of the rapper's reaction to his "Bound 2" parody on The Tonight Show. Now, West is back in the headlines after making a surprise appearance at Chicago's AAHH!Fest, a festival marketed as promoting positivity for the city's youth.

AAHH!Fest attracted Chicago's superstars and was hosted by West's Donda's House and Common's Common Ground Foundation. “This festival is to remind people that we're here doing positive things in the city,” said Andrea Zopp, President of the Chicago Urban League.

“You're sending out a positive vibe and hopefully this healing will start,” said Stephanie Amerpohl.

Other performers at the show included Dave Chapelle (who hosted), Common, Twista, Lil Herb, Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, Jennifer Hudson and MC Lyte. Check out Kanye's performances below.
