Neither Kanye West nor Kim Kardashian are Ivy League educated, but that didn't stop the rapper from speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design in Boston!
West was joined by Virgil Abloh, the creative director for his brand DONDA, who posted photos on his Instagram and wrote, "Super surreal. #DONDA design lecture series #yeezustour."
"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,'" Yeezy 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."
"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," he continued. "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. I believe that utopia is actually possible. But we're led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political. 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."
