Kanye West took his love for design and put it to good use over the weekend.
Just hours before his concert at TD Garden, West spoke to a room full of excited students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston. “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,” the “Black Skinhead” rapper reportedly told the students.
The 36-year-old, who lectured alongside Virgil Abloh, the creative director of his brand DONDA, also revealed to the group that he believes utopia is actually possible. “But we’re led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political,” West said. “So in no way am I a politician–I’m usually at my best politically incorrect and very direct. I really appreciate you guys’ willingness to learn and hone your craft, and not be lazy about creation.”
Kanye’s fiancee Kim Kardashian also joined her boo during the lecture. The reality TV beauty took to Twitter to share a photo with her fans of West speaking. “My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design,” the new mom wrote on the social media network.
Virgil also took to Instagram to share a photo of he and West’s lecture. “Just gave a talk at Harvard GSD with Kanye. Super surreal. #DONDA design lecture series #yeezustour,” the director wrote.
