Harlem Rapper Finally Meets His 81-Year-Old 'Words With Friends' Buddy


Spencer's impressive lyrical flow probably contributes to his many wins on the popular app "Words with Friends"- which led to the unlikely friendship with 81-year-old Rosalind Guttman. After that, they went on to play over 300 more games together. "Today I got to go to Florida and meet her in person", he tweeted on Saturday.

Sleyon won about 60 percent of the games he played against Guttman, but the biggest prize was his interaction with his opponent, a retiree living in Palm Beach, Florida.

"Sometimes we'd speak about personal things, but nothing extra personal", he said. Clearly, the moment wasn't lost on him, or the thousands of others who shared the heartwarming moment, including the Words With Friends account itself.

The meeting was made possible by Amy Butler, a pastor of Riverside Church in New York's Morningside Heights whose daughter is friends with Spencer. "I've been living with this story for several months and I know how powerful it is", she told The Root. Sleyon told Washington, D.C.

Added the rapper: "Whatever people want to take from this story and however it makes them feel, I'm just glad and Rosalind and I can bring that to people".
