North West Rapped the Soundtrack of Yeezy Season 8

The 6-year-old freestyled lyrics like “cool, cute, cool, yeah!”


As far as Kanye West productions go, the Yeezy Season 8 show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday, March 2, started relatively on time. That might have something to do with the fact that for the night’s headliner, 10 p.m. was already well past her bedtime. At first, there was no soundtrack for the models who walked on the makeshift stage set up outside the Oscar Niemeyer–designed French Communist Party headquarters. Though that’s not to say it was silent—the traffic forced to stop in the name of Yeezy made for an ear-splitting chorus of car horns.

But eventually, they faded. The evening’s real entertainment emerged in the form of none other than North West. Clutching a microphone, Kanye and Kim Kardashian West’s 6-year-old daughter set about freestyling about the collection, which she essentially rendered invisible the moment she took the stage. “What are those?” North asked the crowd, not even bothering to turn and look at the models. Other lyrics included “this is my style” and “cool, cute, cool, yeah!”

The 6-year-old has been romping around Paris Fashion Week wearing leather suits and faux fur Dries Van Noten. Her look on Monday night—a gray fleece with a puffy purple vest—was much more laid-back, though it was still impossible for the crowd to keep its eyes off of her. In a show of maturity, the music video director, runway model, creative director, designer, magazine cover star, and budding conceptual artist went out of her way to briefly share the spotlight with the slightly less famous among her scion fam. “Hey, Penelope, I love you!” she shouted out at one point, guiding the crowd’s attention toward her 7-year-old cousin Penelope Disick.

As the models lined up for the finale, Kanye came out to join his protégée, who might be the only person he’d let steal the spotlight. A masterful performer, North brought things to a close by issuing a guttural scream—also known as a tantrum.
