We just got a glimpse of the old Kanye West.
‘Ye recently shared an empowering message about a fan named Tyler Wesley who nearly died in a car accident five years ago. The crash left him paralyzed from the neck down, but Tyler refused to give up.
Kanye heard the young man’s story and decided to gift Tyler a pair of “Cream White” Yeezy Boost 350 V2. The Cream Whites were released this past May, and they sold out immediately. What might be even more impressive than the present is West’s personal note for Tyler. It read, “you are an inspiration. You show the world anything is possible. Thank you for sharing your journey.”
Tyler opened up to the world about his experience in an Instagram post a few months back. On the fifth anniversary of the accident, Wesley admitted that he thought his life was over when he found out he’d be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. But things changed. He writes, “now, I am not ashamed of being in a wheelchair. I love the spinal cord injury/disability community. I’ve heard all kinds of injuries and life stories from inspirational human beings from across the world.”
