Full story below…
Named ‘Donda House’, the initiative will provide a 10 week program focused on music writing and production, named ‘Got Bars‘.
Created in partnership with Rhymefest and his wife- English teacher Donnie Smith- ‘Donda House’ will see the pair use their expertise and resources to provide aid on a creative and traditional sense, launching ideas for the group’s youth program.
In a statement published today, West expressed:
“My mom spent her life as an educator and I am happy that Donda’s House can pick up her torch and honour her life’s mission.”
In adding to this, Fest shared:
“I am so happy to launch “Got Bars” to honor Kanye West’s mother’s memory and to fulfill one of my Aldermanic campaign goals. “Got Bars” will change our youth musically, get them healthy and keep them busy in a creative, peaceful environment. I know it will be an even stronger program because of our partnership with the ARK of St. Sabina.”
