Kanye West performed an impromptu gig for airline passengers onboard an internal US flight on Sunday (November 7).

The rapper, who was seated in first class on the Delta Airlines flight from Minneapolis to New York City, took over the in-flight speaker system half-an-hour into the flight to perform tracks including 'Gold Digger', reports Hollywoodlife.com.

A passenger on board the flight said that West surprised everybody by suddenly coming on the speaker unannounced. He kept his performance profanity free, as the flight had children on it.

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