Kanye West rocks as a DJ
The hip-hop titan, who spent most of last year working with Jay-Z on their seminal collaborative studio album Watch The Throne, spun the "ones and the twos" for revellers at the 1 OAK Club at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
He is taking this move seriously by not only purchasing some of the latest DJ equipment out there but also adopting a persona for this outlet – he is known as Yeezy World Peace when he gets behind the decks.
On the actual evening, West mixed up new school tunes with old school tunes, providing partygoers with an eclectic mix of music that kept them dancing into the small hours of the morning.
His mixing skills were said to be out of this world.
Celebrities attending the party included his music pal Kid Cudi, rapper Wiz Khalifa, Jason Ritter and Topher Grace.
The evening was hosted by The Black Eyed Peas' Fergie.
