Someone needs to write yesterday’s date down as an all-time first – Kanye West finally did something that, for once, may not have entirely been about his own ego. Â New Yorkers for Children hosts an annual Wrap to Rap event to benefit local kids in need, and out of nowhere, Kanye just showed up unannounced and asked to volunteer wrapping gifts.
He stayed for a while, did his job without trying to draw any attention to himself, and then left out the back door without any fanfare. Â Now, of course he knew that the press would get a hold of the story, and it definitely looks good for him to be doing something that benefits someone other than himself. Â I’m sure the positive PR angle wasn’t lost on him.
