Here’s something you don’t see everyday in the thousands of Kimye blog posts that go live on the Internet every 24 hours: Kanye West smiled again.
West’s recent freestyle on the Charleston shootings impressed the crowd and the world at Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash 20 in Atlanta. And his surprise guest, 2 Chainz, hyped them up even more (June 20). Once the ‘All Day’ artist left the stage though, an Indy rapper from Atlanta by the name of Chilly Chills was the one to give West and crew the chills.
Cameras caught Yeezy dancing with Soulja Boy to Chills’ single ‘Poppin In Here’ backstage — in a video later posted to Soulja’s Instagram. Like he did in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, the rapper cracked a smile (but held it this time), even in the presence of 2 Chainz, Cap 1, Fonzworth Bentley, Mike Will, and videophones. Yeezy kept jamming out and even put that joint on replay.
Kanye brought Chills to Street Execs studio before heading to Compound with Drake, 2 Chainz, and Future. Outkast joined them at Waffle House to watch Chills recite his poem, “Little Things That Amount to Much.” Andre 3000 of Outkast pulled him aside for a 15-minute chat and they reportedly bonded over music and their Atlanta roots. Back at Street Execs, Chills played ‘Jesus Pieces’ for his major industry co-signers before ending the night.
The lucky rapper posted the video of West and Soulja to his Instagram with the caption, “f*** ya co-sign, we good…?”
