[artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist] rarely hits the stage without a stunning set to back him up, whether it’s a giant pyramid or an stark white stage filled with ballet dancers . But on Friday afternoon, the rapper stunned passengers on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to New York by hopping on the plane’s public address system and performing a stripped-down mini-concert.
According to Hollywood Life, West, who was seated in first class, jumped on the plane’s loudspeaker system about a half hour into the flight and performed clean versions of his hits “Good Life” and “Gold Digger.”
“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,” a passenger who witnessed the impromptu show told the website. “I wouldn’t have even thought it was him, but he was sitting with a very PR-looking lady. He was like, “Yo, this your n—a, Kanye.” 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.”
Perhaps he was just warming up his vocal cords in anticipation of his surprise jump-up on Sunday night at the MTV Europe Awards in Madrid, where he made an unannounced appearance alongside 30 Seconds to Mars during their pre-show performance of “Hurricane.”
