Kanye West Raps for Fan Battling Cancer Days Before She Passes Away

  • It is no question that media — and fans alike — love to play up Kanye West’s ego. And, if we’re not talking about how much Kanye loves Kanye, it seems as though we’re still heavily focused on the negative. Is his marriage with Kim on the rocks? Is he feuding with Jay Z?

    Well, as one Twitter user recently pointed out, we often times fail to focus on the “good” of celebrities, like Kanye West.

    On January 3, @stalkdebbie tweeted — “This girl in my town had cancer and Kanye called her a couple days ago to rap for. I think Kim was there too. Wasn’t even blasted on social media or anything. She passed yesterday. I have so much respect for him tho. Making her happy in her last moments.”

  • Kim Kardashian West went on to confirm the tweet by saying — “We are praying for her family.”

  • Like Debbie said, it is rare we see West praised for this type of kindness. In fact, it took nearly 5 days for this story to come to light — big thanks, in part, to Kim Kardashian West, herself.

    One Twitter user — from the girl’s town — wasn’t even aware this happened!

  • Which (to me) speaks on the person that West is. He could have easily had this act of kindness go viral, but he chose not to. Twitter user @DaniRay21_ says it best below.
