Arsenio Hall is really bringing it this week. On Wednesday, the late night host welcomed a Prince takeover. And last night, he brought together Rick Ross, Kanye West, and Big Sean for their first live performance of “Sanctified.”
Hall introduced the surprise performance only by saying that Rick Ross was there with “some very special friends.” Naturally, the audience squealed away when West appeared on stage. Sadly, Big Sean didn’t get the same reaction. Big Sean, living in Kanye’s shadow — just like the rest of us.
“Sanctified” is from Ross’ latest album, Mastermind, which we learned when Ross wouldn’t stop repeating, “Mastermind is in stores right now!” during the song’s opening bars. Probably not part of the original lyrics — but hey, you’ve gotta get in that self-promotion when you can.
