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."

Artists are courageous people. (Not war courage). They do it despite income, and ridicule.

Kayne is and always will be a douche. His ego is the size of Texas yet he doesn't have a fraction of talent to back it up. Who cares he took a minute to be "nice" to this dude. He probably just finished a blunt so he was feeling mellow. Loser.

All I can think of is, how stoked Kim's tagalong friend must feel walking next to Kanye. Congratulations you did it.

Kanye and Kim don't exude confidence in their relationship especially since Kim will not dissolve her co-dependent relationship with Johnathan. Humor the media and start holding your baby, North.

Kanye is either on medication OR
it was all a plan to make the public believe that he is not
that crude, rude, piece of **** that we all know him to be!
But wait...a leopard can't change his spots. Sooner or later, the devil will once again emerge, mark my words!
