Report: Kanye West to Launch Star-Studded Initiative to Restore Poor Chicago Communities

Grammy-winning rapper and fashion mogul Kanye West is gearing up to launch an initiative to help revitalize the lives of hundreds of thousands of Chicago, Illinois, residents with the help of some of his celebrity friends, TMZ reports.
TMZ reports:

Sources close to Kanye tell us the rapper created the idea of an organization called Donda Social a while ago, but it’s gained some serious momentum this week. We’re told the group’s focus will be in Chicago, in neighborhoods facing severe problems with housing, education, gun violence and drinking water.

Kanye’s friend and G.O.O.D. Music affiliate, Malik Yusef — who’s also involved in the project — tells us Kanye’s wrangled a group of A-Listers and close buds to help too. We’re told the celeb friends include Common, Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Don C and several other Chicago natives.

The plan is for members of DS to physically visit the struggling areas, listen to the people and come up with real and practical solutions … and most importantly — money.

Kanye West collaborator Malik Yusef reportedly said Chicago-based celebrities would also work “to change the political agenda in Chi-town” to make education, jobs, and gang violence a long-term priority for lawmakers.

The reported campaign comes on the heel of West’s weeklong tweet storm that saw the “Graduation” singer show support for President Donald Trump, take heat from Hollywood elites for encouraging his 27 million Twitter followers to challenged establishment thinking, and rocked and Make America Great Again hat.

An official announcement about West’s new initiative is reportedly imminent.

    I think this is a wonderful idea. Hope all can come together to make it happen. By the way I tried to share to FB, and it said:

    Hopefully, Kanye will address the main problem of poverty and gang violence and how fatherless homes attribute to this. President Trump WILL address the numerous school drop outs with no skill or trade knowledge when he begins his Trade School initiatives. Maybe men like Kayne will do some good for a change. Thank you Kayne and friends.

    please do not just throw money at them What they really really need is some reason to be proud of themselves to FREE 6 week prior to release from prison and found after 5 years the return rate had come down by over 50%!!!!! when the democrats came in they stopped it!!!! And if you give it to the politician of Chicago it will just increase emmanuel to increase his pleasure Check out the fact find people willing to aid in doing things to increase their self respect and teaching them how to protest like the nfl is doing is just plain stupid But by God you are God send for them.
