Kanye West Honored With His Own Day In Atlanta
July 22 is officially Kanye West day, in Atlanta anyway.
After bringing his Donda album listening event to the city on Thursday, the rapper – who was born in Atlanta – was honored with his own day.
According to TMZ, the City of Atlanta presented the rap icon with a plaque backstage at the event and proclaimed July 22 would now be known as Kanye West Day.
The Blood On The Leaves rapper’s mother Donda was honored by Morris Brown College.
The late teacher taught at the school for 20 years and was Chair of the English Department at the first Black-owned HBCU in Georgia.
Kevin James, president of Morris Brown College, was on hand to present the Dr. Donda West Meritorious Service award on behalf of Kanye’s beloved mom.
