Kanye West made a special appearance on Friday and stopped by a college classroom to give a lecture on welp … himself.
E! News first broke the story, the rapper surprised 40 students from LA’s Trade Technical College digital communications department and talked about his “experiences and personal struggles in the music, fashion and graphic arts industry, as well as talking about the importance of education in hopes of inspiring them.”
Per the news outlet, the group of students are troubled youth who are part of a summer bridge program and may not have graduated from high school.
Apparently, when asked how they would rate West as a teacher, a student responded, “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.”
It’s our guess that West’s surprise appearance was part of his community service in connection with the July 2013 paparazzo scuffle. Yeezus, who was charged with battery and attempted grand theft, was ordered to 24 months informal probation and 250 hours community service, which includes teaching at the school.
