He Was Actually Born In Atlanta

That’s right—Chi Town’s number one son isn’t actually a native of the Windy City; Kanye was actually born in Atlanta, where his father Ray was a photojournalist and Christian counselor and his mother Donda was English professor at Clark Atlanta University. He only moved to Chicago at the age of three when his parents divorced.

    Shouldn’t XXL be able to get information about rappers from places other than Wikipedia? If I wanted to learn about what Kanye’s wiki page says, I’ll go to Wikipedia. Try to be original, XXL.
