 From The Sound Live:

 Kanye has been the center of bad attention lately after his random run ins with paparazzi and an album that not many are too gracious of, but this morning he is in the center of a positive light. The super producer and rapper is a product of one of the toughest areas in the country, Chicago. West hasn’t forgotten the city that made him, giving back through his “Donda’s House” which is a non profit organization that is teaming up with another group to  launch the “Got Bars” music writing and education program.  Donda’s House and the ARK of St. Sabina community center will hold a 10 Week course for the troubled youth ages 15 – 24.    “My mom spent her life as an educator and I am happy that Donda’s House can pick up her torch and honor her life’s mission,” said West when asked about his late mother, Donda West. West reached out for some help on this project to individuals like long time rap buddy, Rhymefest and his wife Donnie Smith. “I am happy to launch ‘ Got Bars’ to honor Kanye West’s mother’s memory and to fulfill one of my alder manic campaign goals, ” said Rhymefest in an interview.  The program will be free next month to a number of participants for a pilot launch and we can expect to see /hear an EP featuring songs from the program’s participants.
