Kanye keeps it crazy (good)

Off key. Painstakingly insecure. At times peculiar, if not outright off-putting. Even a little contrived. Yet after initially dismissing it as a customary creative misfire, months later, it's hard to deny the inexplicable awesomeness of 808s & Heartbreak. Yes, there's too much Auto-Tune. Yes, some of the lyrics are more cringe inducing than usual ("Pinocchio Story" ugh).

But goddamn can the man craft a song. As evidenced by last night's Vh1 Storytellers, emotionally unhinged or not, Kanye can still put on a visually arresting performance.

Watch the full set here.
