When he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift while she was accepting her award at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, we didn’t hear the end of it. That is, until he began going on Twitter rants that had everyone questioning his state of mind. Kanye seems to get a lot of bad press, especially these days.
When many people think of him, they think he’s a narcissist and a jerk. Sure, these things may possibly be true to some extent (depending on who you ask). However, there is no denying that Kanye West is a musical genius and a talented entrepreneur. Sometimes, the world needs someone as outspoken and interesting as Mr. West. And like everyone else, Kanye is neither entirely good nor entirely bad. In fact, he’s performed some pretty kind and selfless acts throughout his life. Here are just 10 of them.
10 Asked For Donations Instead Of Gifts
9 Gave Aspiring Rappers A Chance To Be Heard
8 Gave A Free Concert
7 Co-founded Donda’s House
6 Participated In Hurricane Katrina Relief Efforts
5 Showed Up For “Wrap to Rap”
4 Helped War Veterans
3 Gave A Special Present To His Fan In A Wheelchair
2 Created A Lunchbox For Charity
1 Served Lunch To The Homeless
Few experiences are as humbling as serving meals to the less fortunate. In 2009, Kanye and his girlfriend at the time, Amber Rose, decided to do just that. The couple spent the day after Christmas serving meals to the homeless at an L.A. mission. Although some people would say that he just did it for damage control after the Taylor Swift incident, you have to remember that he had a choice. He could have spent the day shopping or hanging out at fancy places with his girl instead.
