Although he was the original “College Dropout”, Kanye West wants to help lower the school dropout rate. Kanye West has established the Kanye West Foundation in effort to help raise awareness about the value of education and fight the rising number of students that are dropping out of schools around the country. At his first reception for the new foundation on February 10th, Kanye will be discussing how he hopes to help add more music programs into schools.
According to MTV, the organizations first effort will be “Loop Dreams” a quest to bring more instruments back into schools and help at risk students learn how to read and write music. For Kanye being a college dropout proved to be a success, but he realizes that life won’t be so easy for everyone else. Along with his ten Grammy Award nominations (the show will air live on February 13th), Kanye is working on his next album “Late Registration” which will hit stores later this year.
