Even Yeezus can be inspirational. Kanye West, who is currently serving his plea deal of 240 community service hours, spent around two hours speaking to 40 students from the digital communications department at LA Trade Technical College. He also spent time with troubled youth participating in a summer bridge programme.
He talked about his experiences and personal struggles in music, fashion and graphic arts, while stressing the importance of getting an education.
A student who was present at the session, Andre Pitts III, said the rapper ‘didn’t try’ to teach the students anything, but just shared his experiences.
The visit is just one of the numerous Kanye West has made as a punishment for allegedly attacking a photographer last summer.
