13 minutes: that’s how long Kanye West played at the Pan Am Games’ closing ceremony last night. The rapper was the headliner at the event, but according to The Guardian, the performance was plagued by technical difficulties. After blasting through a medley of hits spanning much of his career—including “Stronger,” “Power,” “Black Skinhead,” “Touch The Sky,” and “The Good Life”—Kanye ended the set in epic fashion. As the backing-track warbled “I’m good,” Kanye tossed his microphone high into the air and strolled off stage in front of 50,000 people. Watch footage of that emphatic close below.

Earlier in the day, Norm Kelly, the pugnacious Councillor of Toronto's Ward 40—who made headlines recently for entering the Drake vs. Meek Mill debate—wondered on Twitter if Kanye was planning to interrupt any of the other performers at the closing ceremony. In particular, he suggested that the rapper should make an appearance during Pitbull’s set.
