Kanye West Invites Homeless Man to Studio After Hearing Him Rap on the Street
Kanye West made a homeless man's day following a chance encounter on Saturday morning (Sept. 29).
'Ye ran into the man on the street in New York City and stopped to listen to the guy spit. TMZ was on hand to capture the footage. Yeezy was so impressed by the man's bars and enthusiasm, he invited the stranger, who goes by the rap name Nino Blu, back to the studio to sit in on a session.
Blu was more than gracious for the opportunity. "Actually, my birthday was the other day," he said in a video, nearly in tears. "I just became homeless because the place I was living in was a little crazy and I'm out here on the street. Kanye is bringing me in the studio right now. He heard me rap. He let me rap to him. He said I had good energy and he's going to show me some beats and stuff. I feel extremely blessed. I feel happy. I feel like God is looking out for me, right now. I don't really have like any words at all to describe what's going on. It just feels like a crazy ass miracle."
He also offered words of encouragement to others. "I just want everyone back there to know that if you have a dream or anything that you are pursuing, like, keep going for that shit because you don't know what potentially could happen," he added. "The universe works in very mysterious ways."
'Ye has a big night ahead of him. Later on, he will appear on Saturday Night Live and will also be dropping his new album Yandhi.
