Kanye West's Chicago childhood home to be converted into 'community arts incubator'

Kanye West's childhood home may now nurture a new generation of musical greats.

The Chicago house the 39-year-old grew up in is being converted into a community arts 'incubator'.

The property was purchased by Donda's House, a nonprofit set up by Kanye and his long-time collaborator Rhymefest.

It was named after Kanye's late mother, which essentially means Donda's House bought Donda's house. 

'I'm excited to announce the purchase of Kanye's childhood home as a community Arts incubator,' Rhymefest announced on Instagram.

'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.'
