When does a surprise stop being a surprise? Popular opinion is when you spoil the surprise by telling people about it in advance, which is what Jimmy Fallon did earlier today when he announced on Twitter that Kanye West, master Photoshopper and dude responsible for Yeezus, the most polarizing rap album of the year, would make a surprise appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform "Bound 2," the warmest song on a pretty cold album. Up above, watch Kanye, along with The Roots (of course) and Charlie Wilson recreate the magic of the album version for television. Yeezus is out now, and "Bound 2" remains a great song that people sort of want to play at weddings but are also a little too alienated by to actually do so.
