Kanye West and Rhymefest Team Up for Free Music Writing Program for Chicago Youth
Chicago’s own Rhymefest and Kanye West are using their skills and resources to bring a new program to the South Side.
The duo whose collaborations have yielded hip-hop gold like “Jesus Walks,” are now getting together to bring a music program to the city’s youth:
The “Got Bars?” program will teach young people how to write and record their own music over the course of 10 weeks. It’s a collaboration between West’s non-profit, Donda’s House — named in honor of his late mother — and St. Sabina Church.
Donda’s House Executive Director Donnie Smith said music writing helps the students, who will be between 15 to 24 years old, develop problem-solving skills.
