This past Sunday, while in Boston for his “Yeezus Tour”, Kanye West dropped by Harvard University.
As part of the DONDA Design Lecture Series, the rapper addressed a full house re-enforcing the same notes he’s been addressing the media lately: design, architecture, and creativity.
“I just wanted to tell you guys, I really do believe that the world can be saved through design….Everything needs to be actually architected. And this is the reason why even some of the first Donda employees were architects that started designing t-shirts, instead of buildings.”
“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 and I believe utopia is actually possible, but we’re led by the least noble, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political.” – Kanye West
