The Twitter-verse was all a-twitter Monday night after Kanye West took the stage at the Met Gala and performed new music wearing a studded mask.

Celebrity guests, including actress Jaime King and DJ A-Trak took to Vine to post clips (some of which have since been reposted on YouTube) of 'Ye performing some new tunes. Included in the set was "I Am God," a song that Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter told Rolling Stone features West "kind of screaming primally."

Kanye also sweet-talked his babymama-to-be Kim Kardashian via auto-tune, by singing about her awesomeness.

While reaction to the tracks is decidedly mixed, some fans are annoyed by Vine's short-clip format.


Kanye's performance and the viral videos are likely to ratchet up anticipation for his sixth album, which is likely due on June 18. That's the date that West recently tweeted with no explanation. Some initially thought it was the due date for his and Kim's baby, but that blessed event should happen a few weeks after.
