Kanye West

Rapper Kanye West has added public speaking to his list of talents.

The Yeezus hitmaker addressed hundreds of students at the Harvard Graduate School of Design during an appearance at the Ivy League institute.

Students showed up in droves to hear the 36-year-old hip hop star discuss design, architecture, creativity and politics.

"The reason I turn up so much for 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 there is more creativity to happen," West told the crowd.

"I believe that Utopia is actually possible, but we're lead by the least noblest, the least dignified, the least tasteful, the dumbest, and the most political. In no way am I a politician. I am usually, at my best, politically incorrect and very direct."

West and Virgil Abloh, creative director of his DONDA brand, gave a joint lecture as part of their DONDA Design Lecture Series.

The initiative has been responsible for the artwork on releases such as Yeezus, Pusha T's My Name Is My Name, 2 Chainz' B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time, Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being 2, and more.

His fiancé, Kim Kardahsian, who was also present at the event, posted a picture of the star surrounded by attentive students with the gushing caption: "My baby speaking at the Harvard Graduate School of Design."

West is said to have guaranteed his visit ended on a high by handing out free tickets to his Yeezus concert to everyone in the department.

The tour recently resumed in Philadelphia following a string of postponed and cancelled dates after stage equipment was damaged in a truck collision.
