Kanye West

Simon Cowell of the Street

Gives Rapper Shot at Fame

5/5/2014 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Kanye West
 was verbally assaulted on the streets of NYC ... and he liked it ... giving a total stranger several minutes to show off his rapping skills on camera.

Kanye and Kim Kardashian were walking to their home in SoHo when a guy -- who's either really brave or really dumb -- ran up behind Kanye and boldly said, "I been working on my s***, trying to get better at it." 

This is where old Kanye shoots the guy down and crushes his dreams -- but the new KINDER Yeezy instead replied, "How's it sound now?""

And then ... the guy spits his rhyme for more than a minute straight! Kanye even waited for the guy to finish before walking into his building!!

Check out Kanye's reaction -- not sure the guy's going on tour with him anytime soon, but still ...

"The Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day."

Is it me or this site is mostly about blacks and jews? Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just noticed.

ConYeah would not know good music if it bit him on the ass.
What happened to the MEGA MANSION that he and his beard were bragging about?

Give it your best shot. And don't forget that the K Klan (including Kanye) isn't worth your time of day, so drop the hate and make a name for yourself.

I call BS. There's no way Kanye's people would have let him get that close to them unless they set it up, no way. He would have gotten a beat down.

The only reason Kanye was nice about it was on the small chance the guy was good and he could make money off of him.

In a good mood?? When someone wants to rap for him he allows it, how you think big Sean got signed he rapped for him and he liked it and got signed
