What a pleasant back to school surprise!
As students were sharpening their pencils for a new year full of possibilities, Kanye West came by to give LA Trade Technical College students an extra pep talk.
Though 'Ye never went to college, he did spend two hours of his perezcious time talking to a group of 40 students in the digital communications department.
But what was the reason behind the College Dropout's trip??! Remember that brawl with the paparazzi at LAx?! Well, Kanye is STILL working off the 240 hours of community service he was sentenced with.
Besides his legally bound inspiration, the hip hop-erific surprise was in hopes of teaching the already enrolled students about the importance of education.
When one student was asked to rate the spontaneous visitor, he/she replied:
"I've listened to Kanye since I was younger, but I can't rate him as a teacher because he didn't come to teach a fashion class. He just spoke about his inspirations. He didn't try to be a teacher, he simply spoke about how life really is."
You mean, Yeezy spilled secrets on how to rule at life too??! Oooooh!
We kid, we kid!!
It is fabulous that the rapping heavyweight continues to used his mandated time in an inspiring way.
Since this is actually the FOURTH time he's spoken at LATTC, we're sure his words have proven to be motivational.
Good for you, 'Ye. Now, if only more superstars would devote some time to helping others! *SIGH*
