Kanye West and Mina SayWhat

After Kanye stopped in Philly and prior to his Yeezus tour show in Boston on Sunday, Kanye West stopped by Harvard University to speak to the graduate design students there. West spoke about his belief that design and architecture can change the world “I really do believe that the world can be saved through design and everything needs to actually be architected. And this is the reason why even some of the first DONDA employees were architects that started designing T-shirts instead of buildings.” He then tied his creativity to the reason he “turns up” in a lot of his interviews, “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 and I know that there’s more creativity to happen. And I know that there’s traditionalists that hold back the good thoughts and there’s people in offices that stop the creative people, and are intimidated by actual good ideas.” He went on to tell the students how he’s not a politician and how he hates artistic restrictions. In addition to getting some words of wisdom from Mr. West himself he also bought all of the attending students tickets to his show!
