Given that most news about Kanye West as of late has been unsettling, namely his cancelling tours, strange rants and seeking help for mental health issues, it's refreshing to have something heartwarming and Ye related for once.

Kanye's longtime collaborator Rhymefest revealed two days ago on Instagram that he purchased Kanye's childhood home with plans to turn it into a community arts space. Part of Donda's House, a community-bettering organization named after Kanye's mother Dr. Donda West, Rhymefest proudly expressed his plans for the space in detail:

I'm excited to announce the purchase of Kanye's childhood home as a community Arts incubator. 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 thatve been divested from, we know more Lights exist here, they just need to be activated.
Please click the link in my bio & Donate to DondasHouse, support our efforts to support our youth.
