Then they played a tape of other celebritys such as Usher, Omarion, Shaq, P Diddy, Marques Houston and many others all congratulating him getting his own day in his hometown. After that, Kanye was on stage and was presented with the key to the city from Mayor Daley. He talked for a few minutes, just thanking everybody and stuff like that. Then, Common came on stage he did his verse from “Get ‘Em High” and then did his new single, and in the middle of the song, Kanye came out and performed the rest with him.
