You read that right. Since May, Yeezy (excuse me, Professor West) has lectured from the podium at L.A. Trade-Tech College.

Kanye is speaking to future fashion grads at the L.A. institution as part of his court-mandated 250 hours of community service (following an aggressive run-in with a paparazzi photographer). Now, this isn’t the first time Kanye has dabbled in higher education – last November, he visited Harvard Graduate School of Design to speak to budding architects. But unlike his previous, YouTube-published talk, his current syllabus is a bit of a mystery.
Just what is the rap icon teaching? Leather Sweatpants 101? Intro to Dressing Like a Genius? Hopefully we’ll soon gain insight from his pupils. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy a few classroom candids provided by @teamkanyedaily.
