It looks like his upcoming nuptials sure are bringing out the best in Kanye West. We recently showed you a video of the hip-hop mogul giving an aspiring rapper the opportunity of a lifetime, when he listened to a few impromptu freestyle bars on the streets of New York.
This week, Yeezus brought his congeniality tour to the streets of Paris, when another fan approached West to sign a pair of Kanye-designed sneakers. In the video, he's being swarmed by paparazzi, a scenario that often sends the rapper into full-on fight-or-flight mode. But, that was the old Kanye. The new Kanye not only signed the sneakers, he had an ear-to-ear grin while doing it.
Unfortunately, the fan got a harsh dose of reality when Kanye alerted him that his pair of Air Yeezys were not legit. "These are not real, though. You know that, right?" Kanye said. "These are not real. It's fine, though." Of course it's fine, because when life gives the new Kanye lemons, he makes lemonade. (Cosmopolitan)
