Kanye West's Childhood Home Will Become a Community Arts Space for Youth
A project led by ‘Ye’s longtime collaborator, Rhymefest.
Longtime Kanye West collaborator Rhymefest recently announced that he has purchased West’s childhood home with plans to transform the space into a “community arts incubator.” Taking to social media to share the news, the hip hop artist explains that the South Side home will also become a curriculum space for ‘Ye’s youth charity organization, Donda’s House. As the creative director of said non-profit program, Rhymefest writes on Instagram about the upcoming project: “We want to show bright spots in communities that’ve been divested from. We know more Lights exist here, they just need to be activated.”
