Watch Kanye West Listen to a Rapper Perform For Him While Walking Down the Street


Kanye West doesn’t like to be bothered by cameras and questions when he’s out in public, but he didn’t seem to mind when a young rapper approached him while he was walking home with Kim Kardashian in New York City. It seems like the artist had some encounter with Kanye a couple of years ago, and he explains that he’s been working on his music and that it’s sounding better than ever. Then he walks alongside Kanye and raps, and Kanye listens, even holding up at the door to let the kid finish. Watch above.

    Damn fam get some business cards or something

  • khal

    This guy has balls

  • Andrew LaSane

    if those cameras werent rolling tho..

  • Stian Nicolaysen

    He probably would have listened then too. When it comes down to creativity and things that actually have to do with MUSIC, Kanye is interested. He signed Big Sean after hearing him freestyle in the hallway on a radiostation. He doesn’t want to deal with all the other shit.

  • TRWilliams

    I wish people got to see more of this side of Kanye.

  • Địt mẹ chúng mày

    true shit.

  • d skills

  • $TRONG

    that dude was tuff !!! Kanye aint gotta sign him, cuz Kanye don’t have to build every rapper so they could b the biggest in the Game, I jus hope that dude pushes his music and becomes great.

    I get annoyed just by looking at this hailstorm of flashes, can’t imaginane how it is to live with that. Paparazzis are a bunch of leaches. Can’t think of a more unworthy profession.

  • Ben Stern

    not true. I ran into Kanye backstage at a concert and approached him with no cameras around. His bodyguards stepped in front of me and he told them to fall back and chatted with me. He’s a good dude when it comes to real people and fans.

  • Aaron Simbaa Howard

    thanks bruh when I see him again I will

  • Aaron Simbaa Howard

    Thanks man I appreciate the support

    “I’m bout to get some sleep doe.” -Ye’s response

  • Leighton McDonald

    Good luck fam. People need to take notes from you and not be afraid to show their talents to the greats.

  • ohellna

    people routinely post on KTT during tour season how they ran into Kanye and post their pics with him and shit. A lot of fans been able to chop game with him also.. don’t believe that TMZ bullshit about his entertainer persona as if thats really him

  • krossoverking

    The Paparazzi are fucking scum.

  • physiks_VA

  • Victor Ware

    Vistaprint is alright, but their cards a pretty flimsy. I always suggest The print quality is worth the little bit extra cost.

  • the fixer

    Send me an email address and lets do a track or 2. I produce.

  • Magnum Boy

    Tmz is stupid “so is it true you are both married?” to see if Kanye would interrupt the aspiring rapper to answer a dumb question.

  • Aaron Simbaa Howard

    I’ll keep that in mind thank julio

  • Kiddz

  • Heather Robinson VirgoQween

    See he is not the monster they portray him to be he just doesn’t like to be F’d with by the paparazzi!
