A Vine video went viral in which the rapper cut himself off just before smiling in view of the media.
Ye almost let y'all catch him having a good time. Almost. https://t.co/DfLquuvN5J http://t.co/ya1INSCV2u

Seeing famous rapper/world famous scowler Kanye West crack a smile is like seeing Bigfoot. It's so rare that most people think it's a myth, and the photos that exist are blurry and probably fake. But with this Vine, we've come tantalizingly close to proving once and for all that Yeezus is a man like the rest of us.
In the brief video, you can see Kanye in conversation with NBA legend Scottie Pippen at a Bulls/Cavs game. Something Pippen says causes Kanye's lips to contort in a bizarre way, the corners of his mouth arching upwards in an unnatural rictus. Experts believe it was the beginnings of a smile.
However, Kanye noticed the camera pointed at him just in time, and his face fell back into his customary scowl. Parody Twitter account @KanyeWset picked up the video and tweeted it with the caption "Ye almost let y'all catch him having a good time. Almost."
Meanwhile, the real Kanye is presumably doing everything he can to scrub this video from the Internet. After all, he's got a rep to protect.
