Kanye West may have a huge ego, but he can still appreciate good talent. The rapper was in Miami to attend the annual Art Basel events and surprised guests when he showed up to Pharrell Williams’ Q&A session at Design Miami on Wednesday (12.12.12).Pharrell was having an open discussion with fans about his book ‘Places and Spaces I’ve Been’ when the forum moderator opened the floor to a “special guest”. That’s when Kanye, with a microphone in hand, appeared from the crowd to ask Pharrell a question. He asked, “How did you develop such a high taste level in art and influence so many people around the world in pop culture and music?”
Pharrell seemed delighted to see his friend and responded, "When you step into this real world of art, design and fashion, you realize that all great things are made from a functional viewpoint first. And that’s one of the greatest lessons I had to learn. Just like you."
