Students from 6 Chicago-area schools were rewarded on Thursday, June 11 with a free concert by Kanye West for improving their grades, attendance and behavior. The concert was put on by the Kanye West foundation and was the Second Stay in School Benefit concert. The Kanye West foundation was established by Kanye’s late mother Donda West, in 2005. It was the first major event since her death in 2007 and the first concert that Kanye has done in Chicago in over a year.
On June 10, Kanye West attended the men.style.com’s 3rd annual Women of Fashion event at the New York Palace Hotel in NYC. Kanye spent the evening hanging with “IT” model Chanel Iman in his VIP cabana.
