Chance The Rapper To Curate Free Festival In Chicago For Teens

As a Chicago native, it’s only right that emcee Chance The Rapper gives back to his community. On June 24th, the Chi-raq representer will be curating a free music festival called Teens in the Park. It will be held on Chicago’s Northerly Island and will be open to Chicago youth ranging in ages 13-24. The city-sponsored event will also feature performances by Donnie Trumpet, DLow and many others. The event, which will be running from 4:30PM-7:30PM, will include fun activities to partake in such as breakdancing, jewelry-making stations, and graffiti art. Donda’s House, which is Kanye West’s organization for his late mother, is also helping sponsor a lot of the event as Yeezy is also from Chi-Town.

Kanye West Donates 6 Figures To ‘Donda’s House’ – His Late Mother’s Foundation For Aspiring Chicago Artists

Kanye West has broken a donation record at his late mother’s foundation Donda’s House, donating a whopping $133,000 to support the young and aspiring artists in their hometown of Chicago. Complex reports that a portion of Ye’s Donda’s House donation came from the money he earned by performing multiple shows for the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris recently, while the rest was out of pocket. There are currently 160 artists who are supported by the foundation, and Yeezy’s generous donation will no doubt benefit them greatly! “Kanye’s generosity is greatly appreciated and will improve our capacity with new staff as we deliver the high-quality arts programming that our participants deserve,” the charity’s Executive Director Donnie Smith said in a statement. So dope of Ye!
