And sure, I’ll take it there: Do we think he was trying to out-do Taylor Swift’s recent Jet Blue terminal concert?

Passengers aboard a Delta Airlines flight from Minneapolis to NYC literally experienced the coolest night of their collective lives Nov. 5 when they were treated to a surprise performance by Mr. Kanye West. A passenger tells that Kanye, who was seated in First Class, came on the loud speaker about 30 minutes into the flight and rapped family-friendly versions of “The 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,” 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.”

But the most surprising part of the whole flight, the passenger tells us, is that Kanye wasn’t the first person to get off:

“He filed out in line with everyone else, and I thought that was pretty cool. Especially for Kanye.”

So, do we think this was just a really awesome thing Kanye did, or was it a sign that he and Taylor Swift are resorting to guerrilla warfare tactics? Personally, I’m leaning towards guerrilla warfare… but only because I love blowing things out of proportion.
