Kanye West’s Childhood Home to Be Transformed into a Community Center
Kanye West may be in the hospital, but his childhood home will become a community arts center soon.
Rapper Rhymefest, who co-wrote the Grammy-winning song “Jesus Walks,” announced that he had purchased the house West shared with his mother, Donda, as a child. The Chicago home will be transformed into a “community arts incubator” for Donda’s House, the nonprofit organization founded in honor of West’s mother.
“I’m excited to announce the purchase of Kanye’s childhood home as a community Arts incubator,” he wrote on Instagram. “We want to show bright spots in communities that [have] been divested from, we know more Lights exist here, they just need to be activated.”
