Rhymefest Buys kanye West’s Childhood Home

 

You can say what you want about Kanye West but he’s never forgotten his hometown of Chicago and it’s troubled youth. In his continuous effort to give back, his former rhyme partner and creative director of the Donda’s House program, Che “Rhymefest” Smith, has announced the purchase of Mr. West’s childhood home. Donda’s House released the following statement that reads:

“In order to deepen the organization’s impact, Donda’s House has acquired a home facility that will provide a permanent location for all of the Donda’s House family to gather, offer programming, and grow. Donda’s House envisions this facility as not only a homegrown hub of economic activity for the southside but also a gathering place for the community with events and concerts. Donda’s House selected this location in particular, because it is the former home of the organization’s namesake Dr. Donda West, who at one time provided similar services and support to incubate young artists. Donda’s House is committed to the success of Chicago’s young creatives and this property will help these young people flourish.”

Donda’s House, Inc. provides unprecedented access and education from leading experts in music, fashion, and tv/film to Chicago’s youth and young adults. Donda’s House was created in 2013 by Grammy-award winning artist Che “Rhymefest” Smith and distinguished educator, Donnie Smith. Donda’s House, Inc,. Kanye’s charity organization is named in honor of his late mother Donda West.
