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?

let's assume for a second that he didn't (right) do this for the publicity. Even so, he appears incredibly impulsive. "i think i'll jump on stage... i think i'll talk crap off the cuff... i think i'll gift wrap presents..."

guy needs to get some control.

You all who support Kanye idiots and only agree with him because one you are a black two you are trying to make Daddy mad or three you just want to be difficult. If a white man did that Beyonce he would still have his lips attached to Jesse Jackson's Dirty Black A S S. Serious it's the blacks who keep racism going now we just add to it because we know it pisses you all off. F U C K Y O U Kanye SUCK MY D I C K !

Lets Be Honest    

but he didn't do it for the publicity ...


Good gosh TMZ, are you that naive to write that? For us to believe that KW the RACIST didn't know about the event would mean that we believe he's not a RACIST.

KW just needs to go away, now that would be the coolest thing he could do.

@ Kanyefan He still has an ego. He made racist remarks about the president then when he admits he's wrong. Matt Lauer shows The President and what does he do say someone is blowing what he said out of proportion. Tayler Swift didn't deserve what she got from Kanye either but he inserted his drunk ass there as well. She will never get that moment back and why did he do it because he is A RACIST and he wanted to throw in that another RACIST rant that Mtv was somehow fixing it because Beyonce a BLACK artist didn't win. We white people no you blacks hate us we are not stupid thing is we don't care. You can call me a racist because I am just as you are. I am proud of my race it has accomplished more and done more than yours ever will ( True Fact). I am tired of Kanye and his crying we know your a star whooo hhoooo yay for you doesn't make you special. I can say this because I grew up in the Ghetto just like half you and I saw the way things went down. Shooting a Pregnant women because you didn't want to walk home and wanted her car or Shooting up a whole block not aiming and killing two 10 year old boys while they rode their bikes innocently down the road. This is what happens because your jealous of what the other has it's ridiculous that there is an industry driven by this culture that poisons our children. You should all hang your heads in shame because the handful of your race that actually did anything well they were ashamed of you to. So for all you gangstas out their **** Kanye and his poor attempt at making himself look better after last weeks disrespectful racist rant.

Hay people hatin on Kanye hoy many gifts for charity have you wrapped??? none so shut the **** up. And if you read the article it said he slipped out. they only got like 5 pics if he was there for the publicity he would posed for pictures did a vidoe and everything, and if he did do it for the publicity who gives a ****, he's helping people your not. He doesnt need your approval, so many people hate him and he's still winning grammys and making the best music, so that shows how much you matter. But hay people didnt like Michael Jackson either. Michael was the best at what he did. Kanye is clearly the best at what he's doing. So keep hatin on him, and he's just gonna roll up on the Grammys and win another Grammy, make it 15. Stop hatin and get off Taylor Swifts A cup tittie. 80 years from now she'll only be remembered for what kanye did. Kanye is legendary status. Deal with it.
