The Coolest Thing Kanye West Has Ever Done

11/30/2010 10:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West spent 90 minutes gift wrapping presents for foster kids today at a charity event in NYC -- but he didn't do it for the publicity ... he did it because he happened to be in the area and he felt like helping out.

Sources tell TMZ West was not scheduled to attend the New Yorkers for Children's 8th annual "Wrap to Rap" event at the Ainsworth in NYC this afternoon ... but around 6:00 PM, he strolled right in and asked if he could help out.

We're told some people at the event asked West why he decided to roll in -- and Kanye explained he simply felt compelled to lend a hand because he believed it was a good cause.

Our sources say West cheerfully wrapped some of the 2,000 gifts that were donated by Wal-Mart ... and then quietly slipped out the back.

How's that for holiday spirit?

I saw him sing during the Macy's parade on Thanksgiving and he sucked big!!!! He has absolutely no talent and is butt-ugly to boot.

Guesss it's easier to wrap gifts someone else paid for than to actually have invested some money in the cause.

In that brain of his the size of a pea - he thinks he has talent - what he considers music or whatever you call it really is beyond my limit to understand!! I briefly listened to some of those performances and really I do not get it at all - a big WOW to get a bunch of words that rhyme(probably thinks he is a great poet)!! They should start a new award show for the biggest T.U.R.D. of the year and he probably would be the first winner!!!

Kanye gets some good press and some of you aren't content. He didn't have to do it and doesn't need anymore attention. Cameras may have been there because obviously folks probably saw him stroll in. Calm down.
