- Taylor Swift
- Kanye West
Most Helpful Guy
I actually like Kanye's music a lot, at least his early stuff. I met him briefly about a year before he blew up, he was Talib Kweli's DJ for the leg of a tour for one of the Kweli/Common shows I saw, '03 I think. They called everyone up on the stage to dance at the end, and my date wanted to go up because she loved Common. So I was just kind of standing around, got to talking with the DJ, who introduced himself as " 'Ye." I was asking about where Hi-Tek the usual DJ was at, and he was telling me about how he was filling in and that he made beats for a bunch of Jay-Z songs I liked, and I was "damn, that's YOU?" Honestly was a really cool guy, at least in the few minutes we spoke. Then a year later "Through The Wire" came out, I saw the video, and was like "wait a minute...", put the " 'Ye"/Kanye thing together, and was like "oh shit, it's THAT guy." Crazy how big he's gotten now.
Anyway, I've had zero cool interactions with Taylor Swift, so despite his current overwhelmingly douchey persona, I'll be Team Kanye.
