Ever wondered whether Kanye West‘s rapping skills were present from the day he said his first ever word or were something he developed later in life? Judging by this video of a younger Kanye reciting an inspirational poem about Martin Luther King Jr, he was DEFINITELY born with them.
Kim Kardashian was gushing with pride as she shared the adorable throwback video of her hubby reciting a poem dedicated to the civil rights legend.
We hope he got a gold star or something for this, because it’s BRILLIANT.
Proving that he had the passion to make inspirational speeches back in 1990 (even if they have got more bizarre over time), the video shows a young Kanye taking to the podium dressed in a shirt and tie at John H. Vanderpoel Elementary School, before reciting the passionate, inspirational poem about the legendary leader.
We bet there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
The 37-year-old’s poem was called “His Name Means Love,” and, in case you’re interested, goes a little something like this:
A man who fought for freedom/ A man who fought for equality/ Those who were against him/ Were too blind to see/ What this man was fighting for/ So Blacks, Hispanics, Jews and Asians could put their foot in the door/ Yes, we know that this man is great/ That’s why today we celebrate/ Everyone lifts their voice and sing / For a man who wanted freedom to ring / Martin Luther King is who I’m speaking of / A man whose name means love.
YEEZUS. STANDING OVATION. APPLAUSE. You’ve got the lot.
Pretty ruddy impressive stuff for a 13-year-old, right?!
We wonder if his teachers, or if he himself knew that he was destined to become one of the greatest rappers of all time? Judging by this video, it was practically written in the stars, wasn’t it?
Yes. Yes it was.
When Kim wasn’t busy sharing videos of her husband’s talents, she’s been sharing photos of the couple’s romantic skiing mini-break.
As well as showing off her incredible figure in tight-fitting ski wear, Kim also took the opportunity to assure everyone that her and Kanye were still as loved-up as ever, sharing a bunch of selfies during their getaway with seven other couples.
N’awww. They look lovely, don’t they? Kanye might EVEN be cracking a smile under that bandana if we’re lucky. You never know.
Taking to MazSight practically the second they touched down in Utah, Kim wasn’t shy in showing us what her and her hubby were getting up to as they took to the slopes for a spot of skiing and snowboarding.
Snuggling up together in fur hoods, googles and bandanas, Kimye looked as cute as a couple of teddy bears before they headed off for a race down the mountains.
Meanwhile, still grey and dull here in England.
At least we’ve got that amazing video of Kanye’s childhood speech to cheer us up.
Well done, Kanye. Ten extra minutes of playtime for you.
