Kanye West Invites Homeless Rapper Into Studio After Hearing Him On Street

Kanye West - he ain't no gold digger.

Quite the opposite, as the above video proves. The rapper was clearly feeling rather charitable this morning and, after hearing a homeless guy spit some bars, decided he would invite the dude into his studio.

The guy goes by the name Nino Blu and as he explains in the footage, is in a desperate situation... until Ye came along. After becoming homeless recently, Nino took his shot when he spotted Kanye and went for it by rapping his little heart out.

Kanye was so impressed, he invited the rapper to drop some bars into a mic - one thing led to another and Nino was invited into his studio, something he described as a 'crazy ass miracle'.

He said: "My name is Nino Blu and I'm here with Kanye West. My birthday was the other day and I just became homeless because the guy at the place I was living with was a little crazy and I'm out here on the street and Kanye is bringing me into the studio right now.

"He heard me rap. He says I have good energy and he's gonna show me some beats and stuff. I feel extremely blessed. I feel very happy. I feel like God is just looking out for me, right now. I don't really have any words at all to describe what's going on.

"This feels like a crazy ass miracle. I want everyone to know that if you have a dream or you have anything that you're pursuing, keep going to the very end because you don't know what could potentially happen. The universe works in very mysterious ways. I feel extremely blessed with Kanye West."

In other words, don't be too surprised if the world is well acquainted with a dude called Nino Blu very damn soon.

After all, Kanye sure helped along Lil Pump with his new song 'I Love It' despite the fact that it's literally several lines spoken with a droll tone over and over again. If he can throw that track into stardom, he sure can help along a dude with palpable talent.

As TMZ pointed out, Ye's performing on the season opener of Saturday Night Live tonight. Will his new buddy be part of the skit? Only time will tell.
