Kanye West performs impromptu concert for fellow Delta passengers

The tedium and indignity of modern airline travel was briefly alleviated for a group of Delta airline passengers flying from Minneapolis to New York, when wandering troubadour Kanye West abandoned the hermetic heights of his Lanvin-lined private jets for a regular old commercial airliner, then magnanimously treated his fellow commuters to an impromptu a cappella performance on the plane’s P.A. system. According to an eyewitness account, Kanye was sitting in first class “with a little drink in his hand,” when he suddenly jumped up, commandeered the loudspeaker, said, “Yo, this your n*gga, Kanye,” upon which everyone put down their copy of The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest to listen to his brief medley of “The Good Life” and “Gold Digger,” video of which you can see below. This only works if you’re Kanye West, by the way. On some flight right now, an undercover sky marshal is probably eyeing Sisqo and fingering his taser nervously.
