According to Entertainment Weekly, Donda’s House, which is a non-profit organization founded by Kanye West along with rapper Rhymefest bought West’s childhood home. Furthermore, the estate is going to be turned into a music and arts center for youth.
Rhymefest confirmed the news on Instagram this week, in Kanye West’s absence, as the rapper is still recovering from his breakdown.
“I’m excited to announce the purchase of Kanye’s childhood home as a community arts incubator,” he told his followers. “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 [sic]. 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.”
It seems like Rhymefest and Kanye are originally very good friends and he even begged Kanye to seek help for his decreasing mental state a lot earlier.
“My brother needs help, in the form of counseling. Spiritual & mental,” he tweeted back in February. “He should step away from the public & yesmen & heal.”
While his friend cared enough to notice the signs of an upcoming breakdown early on, Kanye’s wife even ditched him when he needed her the most, leaving him alone in the hospital in order to attend Kylie Jenner’s Thanksgiving party.
According to an insider, “before Paris, there were a lot of things Kanye committed to work wise that he couldn’t cancel. All he wanted to do was stay home with Kim and the kids, and he couldn’t.”
On Thursday morning, the reality TV star was seen arriving at the UCLA Medical Center to be by her husband’s side in his dark times. However, as we previously reported, the visit was cut short and Kim Kardashian left the hospital in order to attend Kylie’s party at her private mansion.
