Despite his hard, unsmiling exterior, Kanye West has a thing for street performers.
'Ye is in Paris for fashion week. Knowing this, Paris-based Hip Hip artist Jeff Jon Sin set up shop outside of West's hotel.
As you can see in the videos, he started doing his thing right when Kanye walked by.
The stunt worked like a charm, and Kanye clearly appreciated all the effort Jon Sin put into it, because he rewarded the emcee with a rare ear-to-ear grin.
Check out video of the event below. You can hear more of Jon Sin's music here.
