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."

Y'all realize this is how big Sean got signed right? Smh , y'all act like the man can't be nice. He's only a dick to industry people if y'all haven't noticed

I DO NOT like Kanye West. I Really, very much hate him. But I'll admit that was nice of him to do. Not many celebrities would take their time to listen to something like that. Most would've just walked inside or told im to get lost. So I can appreciate that.
