That that don't kill Yeezus, only makes him stronger! Rapper and self-proclaimed "musical genius" Kanye West was in fine form this weekend at his Seattle concert. After arriving at the West Coast show on Saturday, Oct. 19 wearing a T-shirt featuring a naked picture of his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, West, 36, upped his antics while on stage.

The "Black Skinhead" emcee took to the stage in several full-face masks, singing even with one featuring beaded shells that covered his entire face. West also went shirtless wearing a black leather jacket and leather pants -- possibly the leather jogging pants Jimmy Kimmel got in trouble for mocking.

Turns out Kimmel was right when he noted that the leather jogging pants weren't entirely practical -- after all, the pants split at the crotch in the middle of the rapper's performance. Fortunately, West was wearing black underwear underneath, but fans still got an eyeful.

The wardrobe malfunction was only a small note in a thoroughly bizarre concert. West's variety of face masks included one that looked like a disco ball, and the rapper even had a man dressed as Jesus Christ make a guest appearance on stage. 

The Yeezus Tour runs through Dec. 7, 2013 with the final performance in Houston, Texas.
