Kanye West must have been feeling the lingering Thanksgiving love this year, because his generosity was in full swing last Friday when he gave the surprise of a lifetime to a group of lucky (?) fans in Florida. Kanye, who’s currently on his Yeezus tour along with baby mama Kim Kardashian of Keeping Up With the Kardashians fame, was at a Miami restaurant when he decided to surprise a few of the other diners with tickets to his show that night. Weird how the holidays can bring out the soft side in people, huh?
The act of kindness went down at Stephen Starr’s Makoto restaurant, an upscale sushi joint in the Miami area. Kanye and his crew were in town for a concert that night, and he and fiancé Kim Kardashian stopped in for dinner before his performance. While there, the rapper greeted fans and posed for pictures, and an eyewitness at the restaurant said that ‘Ye seemed to be in a great mood. After a series of mid-concert rants earlier in the tour, it’s no wonder – he probably feels like that great Lenny Kravitz-related burden he’s been carrying around has been lifted, thanks to a 20-minute diatribe in the middle of his NYC show last week.
Yeezy was apparently in a genuinely great mood that night, though, because he bestowed the ultimate gift (in his eyes) on a few unsuspecting Makoto patrons before leaving the restaurant. According to the source, the rapper was about halfway through his dinner when he decided to gift a group in the restaurant with tickets to his show that night at American Airlines Arena. Okay yeah, it is a super nice gesture and all, but what if those people weren’t Kanye West fans? What if their musical interests are more country- or death metal-oriented? They probably would have preferred to just have their tab paid for, and then they could’ve bragged to their Facebook friends about how they got free sushi courtesy of Kanye West and his Keeping Up With the Kardashians girlfriend.
So what do you think of Kanye’s gesture? Was it a legitimately nice thing to do, or did he do it just to generate more publicity about himself? Tell us in the comments!
