Kanye West’s childhood home to be converted into community center for youth
This is good news coming to Kanye West
The hospitalized rapper’s childhood home, located in Chicago’s South Side, will be converted into a music and arts center for youth.
Rapper Rhymefest, who co-founded the non-profit Donda’s House with Yeezus, announced the news Friday on Instagram.
“I’m excited to announce the purchase of Kanye’s childhood home as a community Arts incubator. It will be the first of our Nationwide Lite-Houses. A state of the art recording studio, a curriculum space for @dondashouse and southside music museam. 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,” he wrote.
Donda’s House is named after West’s mother, Donda West, who died in 2007 after complications from several plastic surgeries.
