Kanye West Purchases Childhood Chicago Home For $225K & Plans On Renovating


The outlet stated that Donda West, mother to Kanye West, bought the modest home in 1985. She remained there until she sold the South Shore property in 2003, a year before Kanye released The College Dropout. Real estate reporter Dennis Rodkin stated that following Donda selling the home, “it went through a lot of trouble after that.”

Later, Rhymefest purchased the property but in 2017 shared that because of its terrible condition, he planned on demolishing what remained and constructing a new building. That didn’t happen, and it’s reported that Kanye bought the house in 2018 and earlier this month, he received all the necessary paperwork to begin renovations on the property. It’s said that Ye bought the home for $225K and is expected to spend $60K on renovations. However, it hasn’t been made clear what exact plans he has for his childhood home.

Congrats Kanye on a beautiful move! Theres no place like home, especially the one that made you.
