What reads like a deleted scene from Kanye West’s 2005 video, “Touch the Sky,” Yeezy recently put on an impromptu performance for passengers on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to New York City.
According to Web site, Hollywood Life, the Louis Vuitton Don, who was seated in first class for the November 5 trip, recited “The Good Life” and “Gold Digger” for unsuspecting travelers.
One source, who was on the flight, said West’s voice could be heard over the plane’s loudspeakers around 30 minutes after take-off. “He was like, ‘Yo, this your n*gg*, Kanye,’” he recalled.
“Then he couldn’t decide if he wanted to do ‘The Good Life’ or ‘Gold Digger,’ so he was like, ‘I’ll just do a little bit of both,’” he continued. “It was awesome … but I still have no idea how he got into the cockpit.” [Watch below]
