Kanye West Speaks at Los Angeles Trade Technical College Graduation
Kanye West returned to the school where he served out his community service talking to students to attend to graduation and offer the new graduates some nuggets of knowledge from the book of Yeezus. Nearly a year ago, West was walking the halls of Los Angeles Trade Technical College on a state mandated order. But Friday (May 29), he was back in the building, all smiles, as the kids he once spread knowledge to were moving on. TMZ was on hand to capture footage of West's visit which included him sitting front row at the fashion show and giving a speech to the graduating class on the realities of the real world. "It's a tough world out there," said Kanye. "You're going to prepare yourself for politics, bad bosses, hating employees. And usually, when you're the absolute best, you get hated on the most. Even for me as a successful musician, to make the transition [into fashion] it was really all but impossible. People really try to box you in to what they know you best for."
It looks like 'Ye's presence was well-received at the event. That is not the case for his upcoming performance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival. Angry residents have started a petition to get him removed from the show. And taking it a huge step further, some people have actually threatened the lives of the organizers. Despite the outcry, event organizer Emily Eavis is confident in her decision to book the rap star saying, “Kanye West is an amazing force as a performer. For us, getting the biggest star in the world was an amazing coup."
