On a recent New York night Kanye and Kim were walking to their SoHo apartment when some kid started chatting them up before launching into a quick verse. This probably happens to successful rappers every single day, but I can’t imagine that Kanye is a big fan of impromptu struggle freestyles while he’s walking with his fiance. At the beginning of the clip it sounds like the kid reminds him of a prior encounter they had, so I would guess that Kanye either remembered him, or was just in a super laid back and cordial mood.
Either way, he gives the kid an honest listen and even pauses when they get to his building to let him finish before dapping him up and heading inside. This guy can now play this one of two ways: he can follow up this video with a great song and capitalize on his 15 minutes in a meaningful way, or he can try to live off this moment for the rest of his life as The Kid Who Freestyled for Kanye in SoHo That One Time. Your move rapper.
