“Mr. West is in the building,” these past few days Kanye has been in more than one building during his visit back home in the Chi.
It all started during a tense game 4 of the NBA Playoff series between Cleveland Cavaliers vs Chicago Bulls when Kanye West shocked the arena as he hit the stage during half-time performing his latest single, “All Day” on Mother’s Day. There’s no need to discuss the outcome of game 4, but just know we #SeeRed.
Just yesterday, Kanye made two more surprise visits. Earlier, Kanye received an Honorary Doctorate degree at the Art Institute Of Chicago & later that evening, he made an appearance during Chance The Rapper & the entire SoX movement’s Open Mike Chicago event for high schoolers & even performed alongside Vic Mensa.
As of right now, we’re not exactly sure rather or not Kanye will be making any additional surprise appearances but we must say that we are extremely proud of him. He’s starting to look, act & sound like the old Kanye that we all loved. He’s returning into the Kanye that many of us was first introduced to during his College Dropout, polo wearing with the collar up, days.
After the passing of his mother in 2007, many noticed a traumatic change in Kanye, but it was understandable as to why he changed in our opinion. It’s hard losing a parent especially if you were your parent’s only one. But we must admit, it’s good to see Kanye returning back to Chicago & participating in things that we know made his mother very proud. Dr. Donda West was very passionate about education & arts o our understanding, so for Kanye to receive an Honorary Doctorate degree & spend time with the youth during this Mother’s Day weekend is sure to put a smile on her face, as it instantly put one on ours the moment we heard about it.
We’ve noticed such a gentle, yet humble Kanye since the release of his single/video, “Only One”, which he speaks as his mother during the entire song. It’s possible that fatherhood & being a husband is bringing out these unfamiliar ways. From him linking up with artists from Chicago to performing/supporting the Chicago Bulls, providing a speech & receiving an Honorary Degree at the Art institute of Chicago, & encouraging the youth at the Open Mike Chicago event, we can only expect the unexpected from Dr. West.
