Chicago rapper Rhymefest buys Kanye West’s childhood home

CHICAGO —  Chicago rapper Che “Rhymefest” Smith is buying Kanye West’s childhood home in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood.

Rhymefest announced it on Instagram.

He said he would turn the home into an incubator for young artists.

“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,” Rhymefest said in the post.

It’ll become part of Donda’s House, non-profit organization West founded after the death of his mother.
