    We keep the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards recap coming with a performance of “Blood on the Leaves” by Kanye West. With minimal lighting and only Steve McQueen’s infamous photograph Lynching Tree as a backdrop, West’s performance was by far the most intimate of the night. After the performance, Yeezy’s website was updated to feature McQueen’s photograph along with the following text: “This tree was used for lynching. Those who were murdered are buried in the ground around the tree.”

    In addition to West’s performance, a new album by Eminem was announced in a short commercial featuring Beats by Dre. For a quick recap of the award ceremony’s winners, head over here.
