Kanye West Visits Smithsonian National Museum Of African American History And Culture With His Dad
Keeping up with Kanye West has been difficult lately, as the rapper has maintained a low profile for much of 2017 — give or take a feature verse and a concert appearance — despite fans pining for his return to music. Before he makes that return, however, Yeezy seems to be checking a few items off his bucket list, like visiting the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, where he was spotted Tuesday (Jan. 9).
In a clip posted by a visitor, West was visiting the Washington, D.C., museum with his father, Ray West, and apparently distracted visitors from a tour that was happening at the time. The video shows Kanye listening intently and nodding his head as a museum tour guide explains a specific collection to him and his father.
Kanye’s recent appearance comes just a few days after a Twitter user shared that West made a terminally ill fan’s wish come true by rapping to her over the phone before she lost her bout with cancer shortly after the call. “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,” the user wrote on Twitter. “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 responded saying, “We are praying for her family.”
