Kanye West's Childhood Home Set To Be 'Heart Bombed'

Kanye West old home will be a center of love in Chicago this Valentine's Day.

(AllHipHop News) Kanye West's childhood home in Chicago, Illinois is set to be showered with love on Valentine's Day as it's recognized as a local landmark.

Officials at the rap superstar's Donda's House arts organization have teamed up with representatives from the Skyline Council of Landmarks Illinois to 'heart bomb' the South Shore Drive property, during which volunteers will help to cover the run-down house with paper hearts.

The event is aimed at highlighting historic sights and local landmarks which are deserving of the public's attention.

"We are thrilled to be working with Landmarks Illinois' Skyline Council," said Donnie Smith, Executive Director of Donda's House. "Landmarks Illinois came out to the site recently to give us an assessment of the house, with recommendations for renovating and repairing the property. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the house is, overall, in pretty good shape."

Kanye's longtime friend and collaborator, Rhymefest, previously bought the home in 2016 and hoped to use it as a base for the Donda's House non-profit, but the plans failed to come to fruition.

He now reportedly wants to use the space as a youth arts center.

West co-founded the charity with Rhymefest following the passing of his beloved mother, Donda West, in 2007.
