Rapper Kanye West surprised passengers on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to New York City when he came over the loudspeakers and started rapping two of his hit songs.

According to Hollywood Life the 33-year-old, who was seated in first class on the flight, came on the loudspeakers 30 minutes after takeoff and rapped censored versions of 'The Good Life' and 'Gold Digger'.

One passenger said they got a little 'freaked out' when West came on the overhead: "I had to pass through first class to get my seat in economy, and I saw Kanye sitting there with a little drink in his hand.

"I wouldn't have even thought it was him, but he was sitting with a very PR-looking lady. Then he couldn't decide if he wanted to do 'The Good Life' or 'Gold Digger,' so he was like, 'I'll just do a little bit of both.'

"It was awesome...but I still have no idea how he got into the cockpit."

The passenger also said that rather than leaving the plane first, like many first-class passengers "He filed out in line with everyone else, and I thought that was pretty cool. Especially for Kanye."
