The 'Black Skinhead' rapper talks about design in his speech at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston, telling the audience, 'I believe that utopia is actually possible.'
Kanye West gave a lecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston on Sunday, November 17. The rapper showed up at the Ivy League university as a part of his design company's "DONDA Design Lecture" series. DONDA's creative director, Virgil Abloh, also joined him that day. "Super surreal. #DONDA design lecture series #yeezustour," Abloh wrote.
According to Us Weekly, West talked about design during his speech. "Just wanted to tell you guys: I really do believe that the world can be saved through design, and everything needs to actually be 'architected,' " he told the students. "And this is the reason why even some of the first DONDA employees were architects that started designing T-shirts instead of buildings. But just to see the work actually be actualized."
The "Black Skinhead" rapper explained his long interviews and mentioned Oprah Winfrey in his speech. "If I sit down and talk to Oprah for two hours, the conversation is about realization, self realization, and actually seeing your creativity happen in front of you. So the reason why I turn up so much in interviews is because I've tasted what it means to create and be able to impact, and affect in a positive way," he said.
Kim Kardashian proudly watched as her fiance addressed the audience members. The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star later shared a photo of the rapper on her Instagram page. "My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design," the 33-year-old reality star captioned the picture.
