While Kanye West may currently be struggling with mental health issues, there is still some good Kanye related news for the city of Chicago. Rhymefest, a long time Kanye collaborator and co-writer, announced over the weekend that West’s childhood home will be transformed into an arts center for at risk youth.

As part of the pair’s Donda’s House charity, the home will be undergoing changes to include a recording studio, a curriculum space for the charity, and a music museum. The charity was founded to honor Kanye’s late mother Donda West, who was an English professor until her untimely passing from cosmetic surgery complications in 2007. Rhymefest took to Instagram to make the announcement. Here’s what he had to say.
