Often, we hear rappers speak about the meaningful moments of their childhood homes, in which they find themselves buying later on in life. Kanye West has become one of those few rappers who have decided to buy his old home back.
According to WGN9, West has bought the Chicago house for $225,00, which in the past has been put up for foreclosure. It was later bought by Che “Rhymefest” Smith, who collaborated with West in the past, was expected to use the house for an art incubator. It then turned into controversy for the West family and Rhymefest.
A clip (featured below on minute 1:55) from Keeping Up with the Kardashians expressed that there was tension between the old collaborator and Mr. West. It showed the West family planning out a trip in Chicago when Kanye mentions visiting the old home, in which he would have to reach out to the owner, Rhymefest, to do so. Kim felt passionate about the situation and showed how much she wanted Kanye to have the right to the house to be at peace.
According to WGN9, Dennis Rodkin, a Chicago businessman, shared that it was expected to be demolished due to the quality of the home. Recently, a permit worth $60,000 has been put in.
There are no known ideas on what the West family is expecting to use the Donda house for, but as fans know, Kanye has outwardly ideas that we can expect something incredible out of it.
