When Kanye West isn’t being all self-centered sociopath Kanye, he’s a pretty swell guy. According to TMZ, he recently helped, Cameron Grey, a rapper who spit for him on the street back in 2015, live the dream of becoming a professional rapper by putting him in contact with the right people to put his album together.
Last year, Cam spit for West outside of the House of Blues in L.A. after pestering the rap star as he exited the club. Grey’s off the dome freestyle wasn’t all that impressive so ‘Ye asked him to spit a written. West was a little impressed but not mind blown, later asking Grey if he would start out as an assistant.
But, according to Cameron, he later got a call from Kanye who didn’t want to sign him to G.O.O.D. Music, but did want to help out if he could. Cam says Kanye linked him up with the Grammy-winning producer Anthony Kilhoffer. He is now finished with his new album which is titled Cocaine Ferrari.
Kanye recently announced he will be heading out on the road. Dubbed the Saint Pablo Tour, West will be hitting up 32 cites. Starting Aug. 25 in Indianapolis, Ind, the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho will hit up Toronto, New York, Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and more before closing out on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, N.V.
