Rhymefest buys Kanye West’s childhood home to convert into a community arts space

 Kanye West has not much good news lately, but his fellow Chicagoan Rhymefest did a good deed on behalf of West’s charity Donda’s House. Fest purchased West’s childhood home and wants to convert it into a “community arts incubator” with a state-of-the-art recording studio. He plans also for the home to a curriculum space for Donda’s House and music museum for Chicago’s Southside. Read the official statement from Donda’s House 2011 below.

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.
