Skip to comments.Kanye West to Announce His Plans to 'Make Chicago Great Again' As Early As Next Friday

Rapper Kanye West is expected to announce as early as Friday a major philanthropic project aimed at improving the lower-income neighborhoods in his home town of Chicago.
West launched Donda Social in 2012 and said at the time that the organization was intended to "pick up where Steve Jobs left off."
He tweeted the announcement of Donda, named after his late mother Donda West, and said it would operate as a "design company which will galvanize amazing thinkers in a creative space to bounce there [sic] dreams and ideas."
However, West's recent tweets this week , including an endorsement of President Trump as well as calls for people to free themselves to empathize with others of different views, indicates he wants to change Donda Social's focus from art projects and music collaborations to focus more on social justice.
Chicago's South Side neighborhoods are among the city's most dangerous. West wants to bring together local residents and national experts to discuss how to address a variety of issues, including affordable housing, high unemployment, unsafe drinking water, and gun violence.
In 2017, Chicago saw 2,785 shootings, and 650 died.
West's group would take a hands-on approach in helping Chicagoans and pour money into improving those places.
West even attacked former President Barack Obama for doing "nothing" to improve Chicago during his eight years in office. Obama's former White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, is now mayor of Chicago.
G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Malik Yusef teased the announcement on Thursday and said a number of big names are working with West on the project, including Common, Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, and Don C.
Yusef also said Donda Social will force local politicians to change their agenda in a way that makes its agenda the new priority.

Rahm won’t be happy. That makes me happy.
I believe an election for Mayor of Chicago is scheduled to be held on February 26, 2019.
I wonder how the aldermans and Rahm dead fish will take this?
Liberals fear exposure; always always believe that!! They survive and thrive in the dark of their own sewers.
MAGA 2018 and 2020
The Deplorables must always make it a priority to expose Liberal bottom-feeders.
Is he running for mayor ?
I would buy a pay per view for the Chicago mayoral debate between fishy and Yeezy!!
Watch the Dems and media work at keeping Chicago Dangerous.
What a brilliant move if MAGA K moves the needle on this
The undoing of Progressiving announced ahead of time.
Kanye is from Chicago. PDJT has talked about Chicago, that something needed to be done. Kanye says he loves Trump and then announces he’s going to help in Chicago. It’s coordinated imo.
This has a lot of potential and is more than anything any other POTUS has done.
I knew potus had something up his sleeve when Jim Brown, Kanye and Ray Lewis came walking into Trump towers
I love the fact that Kanye will use his OWN money to start these shark tank pilot projects, then potus will review them im guessing for seed money...just like reality tv!
Love to see Kanye interrupt Obama and say, Yo, Barack, Im really happy for you, Ima let you finish, but Donald Trump is of the best Presidents of all time! One of the best Presidents of all time!
Just parade Kim’s backside across the stage at every campaign stop and he’s a shoe in with the Chicago crowd.
I hope Kanye succeeds in making Chicago Great Again. That would be sooooo wonderful for our country!
the brilliant part of the plan is Kanye will take his shoe money from adidas and find useful ways to improve Chicago then report to potus..all the while dethroning Rahm lol
Sounds like a plan!
its a micro ‘shark tank’ plan that can be repeated all over the country in democrat controlled cities...
