Indeed, the notoriously moody rapper enjoyed a few precious hours away from Kim Kardashian and newborn daughter North to take in a baseball game between local team Los Angeles Dodgers and arch rivals New York Mets.
Having arrived with Kim's younger brother Rob, Yeezy was roundly booed by Dodgers fans as his face appeared on a large screen inside the stadium.
“Kanye West was just shown on the jumbatron at Dodger Stadium and booed,” ESPN writer Arash Markazi tweeted at the time.
Markazi later noted for his followers that Kanye and his party had been reseated, tweeting: “Kanye West just got moved to second row seats near the Mets dugout. #KanyeWatch.”
While the Black Skinhead rapper got a frosty reception, other stars to attend the event were treated more generously by fans.
“(Retired NBA player) Robery Horry is at the Dodgers game and gets a loud ovation. Sorry Kanye,” tweeted Markazi, adding: “Robin Thicke is at the Dodgers game too and gets a loud ovation.” (op: judging their taste rn)
Despite the boos, Kanye appeared to be in good spirits as he soaked up the atmosphere with his group of pals - even going so far as to crack a rare smile.
Markazi later joked that his presence at the game was a bad omen, particularly when the Dodgers fell behind.
He tweeted: “If the Dodgers, down 4-0 in 3rd inning, lose, you know I'm pulling the 0-1 when Kanye West is in the house card.”
The Dodgers eventually rallied back to win the game 5-4.
betta bow in the presence of greatness
