UPDATE: Kanye West Won't Be Teaching Art Courses in Chicago

Plus a new YEEZY office in the Windy City.

UPDATE: Kanye West’s declaration of being selected to teach a course at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art have been disputed by both institutions. According to NBC Chicago and FADER both colleges have released statements declaring that there are no plans for West to teach a course.

Kanye West has been quite busy as of late, releasing a new music video and dropping a capsule with Pornhub. The Chicago rapper has now taken to Twitter to announce he’ll be teaching art courses. In his sole tweet about the new role he shared he’ll be a professor at the Art Institute of Chicago and the American Academy of Art.

This news comes as no surprise as West is heralded as a leader of the youth alongside Virgil Abloh. The new role would be the continuation of a legacy for the West family. Years ago prior to her untimely death, his mother, Donda West, was a professor at the Chicago State University. Additionally, the artist also shared on that he’ll be opening another YEEZY studio in Chicago. This office will join the other creative bases which include New York, London and Wyoming.

Stay tuned here as more news emerges on Kanye West’s role as a college instructor.
