Often became known for his stinging wit, his clever lyrics, his "boy next door" feel, and his trademark "stuffed bear" who appears on his album covers and merchandise. The home video release Kanye West: Late Orchestration serves as a companion piece to West's 2006 Mercury EP, Kanye West: Late Orchestration - Live at Abbey Road Studios.
