Rhymefest Bought Kanye West’s Childhood Home And He Has Big Plans For It

Kanye West‘s childhood home is ready to play host to more talented Chicago artists and it’s “Jesus Walks” co-writer Rhymefest that’s helping make this transition happen.

Rhymefest (a.k.a. Che Smith) revealed on Instagram that he had purchased his friend’s former house to assist Kanye’s non-profit organization Donda’s House. The plans lined up for the building sync up with the charity’s goal of providing access to premium arts instruction to youth in the city of Chicago.

“I’m excited to announce the purchase of Kanye’s childhood home as a community Arts incubator,” offered Rhymefest in the accompanying caption. “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 thatve been divested from, we know more Lights exist here, they just need to be activated.”

This is certainly a welcome development and when it comes to Kanye-related things, we’ll take as many of those as possible. Page Six’s sources claim that the rapper/producer/designer’s hospitalization continued into Thanksgiving with his wife Kim Kardashian at his side.

“Kanye is still under medical observation,” said one of the outlet’s sources. “He’s doing better, but he still needs to rest. He’s expected to stay in the hospital for a few more days.”

We wish Kanye a full and speedy recovery.
