That same say he was seen taking young homeless rapper off the streets of New York City and bringing him into the recording studio on Saturday.

‘He heard me rap, he let me rap to him and he says I have good energy and he’s gonna show me some beats,’ the young man, who goes by the name of Nino Blu, said in a video clip posted on West’s Instagram. 

‘I don’t have any words to describe what’s going on. It feels like a crazy a** miracle,’ he added.

This all began when Blu spotted West walking by on the street and decided to start dropping some rhymes in an effort to get his attention.

Suffice to say, the world-renowned rapper was impressed with his delivery. 

 After doing a little freestyle, Blu explained his situation to West.

‘Actually my birthday was the other day and I just became homeless because the guy I was living with was a little crazy and I’m out here on the street.’

All while explaining his plight to the streets, the young man kept a positive attitude and even offered some words of wisdom.
