Young rapper and grandma become best friends over Words with Friends

Young rapper and grandma become best friends over Words with Friends”

Their friendship began last summer when they squared off on Words With Friends, an online game similar to Scrabble.

Spencer, 22, flew from NY to Florida to meet his "Words With Friends" buddy Roz, who is 86 years old.

The trip was arranged by Amy Butler, a pastor at Manhattan's Riverside Church, who flew to Florida with the rapper.

The Washington Post reported that the friendship really took off when Guttman used the word p-h-a-t, hip-hop slang for excellent.

As of Monday, the tweet has more than 1 million likes, 240,000 retweets and 5,000 comments.

"I was like, yo, how do you know that word?"

Spencer wrote: "So last summer I randomly met this 80 y/o woman on words with friends. we played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine". Photos of their reunion in West Palm Beach are just too heartwarming! Today I got to go to Florida and meet her in person'.

On Friday, Spencer and Pastor Butler traveled more than 1,000 miles to Florida, so Spencer could finally meet Roz in person. Yet the two became unlikely friends as they continued to play Words with Friends matches against one another. Sleyon said he aked her.

Sweet day today with Spencer and his #wordswithfriends friend, Roz, watching them bond in person for the first time.
