Rhymefest, Chicago rapper, activist, and long-time associate of Kanye West announced the purchase of West's childhood home on Instagram. Rhymefest is the creative director of Donda's House, a Chicago youth arts program co-founded by Kanye and named after his mother, Dr. Donda West.
As XXL has reported, Rhymefest intends to convert the residence into "a community arts incubator." It will include "a state of the art recording studio, a curriculum space for [Donda's House] and south side music museum." To get there, he'll need donations: click here to contribute online.
"We want to show bright spots in communities that've been divested from," Rhymefest wrote. "We know more lights exist here, they just need to be activated."
