Kanye West performed some impromptu IFE on a trip from Minneapolis to New York yesterday.
It seems some passengers had the presence of mind to record Kanye’s mini-concert- pretty much exactly like an iTunes preview snippet- of a sanitized version of “Gold Digger.”
The Hollywood Life spoke to someone who was on the flight:
“I had to pass through First Class to get my seat in Economy, and I saw Kanye sitting there with a little drink in his hand,” the passenger recalls. “I wouldn’t have even thought it was him, but he was sitting with a very PR-looking lady.”
Needless to say, everyone freaked out when they heard Kanye’s voice over the loudspeaker 30 minutes later.
“He was like, ‘Yo, this your n***a, Kanye,’” the passenger says. “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.’ It was awesome… but I still have no idea how he got into the cockpit.”
It would be extremely trite for me to suggest that perhaps he barged into the cockpit and grabbed the mic from the pilot, interrupting a description of clouds outside the right hand side of the plane.
