Kanye West made dreams come true for a dying girl by calling her up and rapping to her. We’ve got the heartwarming details of his sweet gesture.
For all of the crap Kanye West takes for being a bully and picking feuds, it turns out he’s a softie at heart. The 40-year-old rapper heard about a young fan with terminal cancer and gave her a phone call where she got her own private concert from the hitmaker. He didn’t do it for publicity, he didn’t even let it be known until someone who knew the dying girl posted about it on Twitter on Jan. 3. She responded to a Kanye fan Twitter post that read “Wealth, health, and new music from Kanye West is all I want in 2018,” and then left the beautiful yet heartbreaking news in the comments.
“This girl in my town had cancer and Kanye called her a couple days ago to rap for her. 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,” a woman named Debbie wrote. His gesture was so on the down low that another town resident responded saying they hadn’t heard a thing about it before Debbie told the story. “Tbh I didn’t know this happened and I live in the girl’s town, the fact that he did that wow,” the user wrote.

Before anyone claims this might have been made up or just a tall tale from a fan to make Yeezy look like such a caring and kind person, his wife Kim Kardashian, 37, backed up the story! She re-tweeted Debbie’s comment on Jan. 7 and said that she and Kanye were praying for the girl’s family now that she’s passed away. So heartbreaking!
This isn’t the first time Kanye’s done a kind deed for a fan while going under the radar about it. Last May a young man named Tyler Wesley marked the five-year anniversary of his spinal cord injury that left him in a wheelchair. He wrote a passionate Instagram post about how the life changing car accident taught him to never give up. A few months later he posted a photo of a custom pair of the Yeezy Boost 350 V2s in cream white along with a handwritten note from the rapper. It read “You are an inspiration. You show the world that anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your journey.” It’s so good to know that Yeezy has a heart that is as big as his talent!
