Donda's House has yet to move forward

One year after Kanye West announced that he was buying his childhood home to turn it into a non-profit center for artistic children, the house sits abandoned and dilapitaded. According to a new story on The Daily Mail the house is surrounded by trash and drug paraphernalia. While this isn’t unusual for abandoned houses in major American cities, the fact that West had such lofty aspirations for it makes it notable.

West’s charity Donda’s House bought the home to make it an incubator of sorts for at-risk children with artistic talent. He announced the purchase via his lifelong friend and collaborator Rhymefest, who posed on the steps of the Chicago home as they announced their plans for it.

“I’m excited to announce the purchase of Kanye’s childhood home as a community Arts incubator,” Rhymefest wrote in an Instagram post,“ he said. “’It will be the first of our Nationwide Lite-Houses. A state of the art recording studio, a curriculum space for @dondashouse and southside music [museum].”

That was an awesome goal, but new photos obtained by The Daily Mail appear to show the home in a state of disrepair.
